We are pleased to welcome Sacramento, CA based emo/alternative-rock band, Weathering to Sunday Drive Records. Started in 2019 by members Elinor Carbone and Alex Acuna (Formerly of Anxious Arms), the two had much inspiration from 80’s dark-wave acts like The Cure and Depeche Mode + contemporaries Cloakroom and Nothing. The band was able to take these influences and carefully crafted their debut EP, I Come Down. Consisting of two singles, Weathering showcases two aspects of the band with a consistent theme of lingering.
Originally appearing on Sunday Drive’s compilation, Music For November Vol. 5 the title track, ‘I Come Down’ strongly displays the dark and heavy side of Weathering with haunting melodies and explosive sounds. Now accompanied by the new track, “New Air”, the band shifts to a more upbeat, new-wave sound—pulling in influences from The Cure to Pity Sex.
I Come Down is a powerful first-effort for the starting of a band. Weathering has much more to come and we’re excited to hear what the band has in-store.
The EP is streaming everywhere now, and physical copies will be available in the near future. For now, you can stream and follow the band below.
