Welcome Juan Cordero to SDR

Posted on April 14th, 2023

We are pleased to welcome Texas indie-rock band, Juan Cordero to Sunday Drive Records. ‘Casiorock’ is the first single released today on SDR, paired with the debut single, “SWAT” on the b-side. Singer & songwriter, Jonathan Perez (Tramua Ray), does an excellent job in writing very catchy lo-fi songs, that seem to pass by so quickly, yet span three minutes long. The melodies get stuck in your head and are backed by so much texture that the distorted guitars and lo-fi drums provide.

Today, you can pre-order a new shirt and watch the music video for 'Casiorock' below.

Welcome Painful Choice to SDR

Posted on March 3rd, 2023

We are pleased to welcome Atlanta hardcore band, Painful Choice to Sunday Drive Records. In a span of 3 minutes, a huge wave of love, loss, and progression is explored on the demo from Painful Choice. Formed in 2022 and originally released on Armageddon Records, the demo is an explosive release, full of melody and emotion. Painful Choice embraces the sound of DC’s Revolution Summer era bands, Rites of Spring and Gray Matter—while naturally melding their hometown influences from the likes of Car vs. Driver and Abuse of Power. The demo is available again now on cassette tape, with new music to come later in 2023.

Welcome Trembler to Sunday Drive Records

Posted on February 25th, 2023

We are pleased to welcome Houston, TX alternative-rock band, Trembler to Sunday Drive Records. Released at the end of 2022, “Folding” is the sophomore LP from Houston alternative-rock band, Trembler. With the help of producer, Corey Coffman (Gleemer) the band was able to reinvent their sound on “Folding”. While the band focused on indie/emo music on their debut, “Folding” finds Trembler vastly expanding their soundscape—leaning both heavy and soft in the realm of alternative rock.

There’s an introduction of many atmospheric layers and noisy guitars that pair perfectly with solemnly catchy vocal melodies and introspective lyrics from vocalist Luke Gonzales. Trembler is creating a unique sound in this genre in 2023—with songs that get stuck in your head and pass quickly, due to the bands’ attentive sequencing and sharp songwriting.

Their 2022 LP, “Folding” is reissued now on cassette tape along with new merch. New music coming soon.

Welcome Sign Language to Sunday Drive Records

Posted on February 17th, 2023

We are pleased to welcome Cincintati, Ohio alternative-rock band, Sign Language to Sunday Drive Records. There’s a fascinating dichotomy that exists in Sign Language. The four-piece plays a blend of post-hardcore, mixed with shoegaze elements consisting of atmospheric guitars, backed with heavy bass and drums. Layered above this are aching yells from Pacheco, which then pair with the calm, gentle vocals of Sarah Tolley. The band pulls everything together perfectly, creating a diverse and unique sound in the new landscape of alternative rock & post-hardcore.

2023 rings in a new chapter for the band as they release the single, “The Nothing” on Sunday Drive Records. The band continues to perfect their distinct sound, with a new LP on the way later this year.

Watch the music video for "The Nothing" below.
