Releases New Single “no fun”

(May 16, 2024) LA-based pop rock duo senses are back stronger than ever with their latest single, “no fun” — listen HERE. Serving as the band’s second single of the year, “no fun” is a pop-punk confessional track about wanting to settle down in the best way.

“‘no fun’ came about super organically,” states singer Madison Taylor. “We were in the studio and we were asked what we wanted to write about, and I just jokingly said ‘I’m not sure but we can’t have any fun doing it.’ And we kind of just looked at each other and said, ‘wait, what if we write something about that!'”

“I wanted to do this fun play on when you are a bit of a wild card and maybe even a little reckless,” adds Madison. “You meet someone that is ‘no fun,’ but in the best way. Someone who kind of tames that crazy side of you, if you’re ready and wanting it to be tamed. Just that story of finding someone that is completely the opposite of yourself, but yet you really enjoy ride you’re on with them and the effects they have on you for the better.”

“no fun” and the anthemic “better than this” comes after the band’s recent debut EP, take me out of here, released last year. The take me out of here EP put senses at the height of their creative powers and solidified the group as one of the most promising to come out of this generation of radio-friendly pop-rock outfits. Each song is a rollercoaster of emotions, offering listeners an immersive journey through the band’s musical universe. From the anthemic TikTok-viral chorus in “sleepwalking” to the intimate, introspective moments in “can’t find the words”, the band has something for everyone.

senses are no stranger to the road – last year they collected a troupe of dedicated fans across 3 tours where they supported Carlie Hanson, Leah Kate, and Boys Like Girls. Most recently, the band embarked on a 24 city tour where they served as direct support for Charlotte Sands.

Named by Idobi Radio as one of their “Rising Artists to Listen to in 2024”, Los Angeles rock band ‘senses’ cultivates a unique pop-rock edge by utilizing dark synths, driving guitars, pounding drums and unique storytelling. The band, which originated when singer Madison Taylor met drummer Nick Sampson on Craigslist, prides themselves on their anthemic, relatable songwriting.

Their debut EP – “take me out of here” (released in 2023) – was produced by Keith Varon (Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker, The Aces, Nightly, jxdn) and received praise from fans and critics alike. Their contagious singles “sleepwalking” and “gonna make sure” have been supported by MTV, NickMusic, Wonderland Magazine, Rolling Stone IN, AXS TV and more, as well as landed the band’s first radio support with adds on KROQ, idobi Radio, DC 101 and more. The tracks also received support on several editorial playlists, including Spotify’s The Scene, All New Punk, The Locker, and Pop Punk’s Not Dead.

The band also has a handful of tracks under their belt with acclaimed producer and engineer Blake Harnage (Tate McRae, PVRIS) and recently released their single “Playing Dead”, which was produced by Mike Pepe (Taking Back Sunday, HUDDY, As It Is, Lil Lotus). Hitting the ground running in 2024, the band and producer Keith Varon released their first single of 2024, “Better Than This”, on Feb 29, 2024. Their second single of the year – “no fun” was produced by Mike Pepe and will be released on May 16, 2024.

Over the course of 2023, senses hit the road supporting Carlie Hanson on her North American tour which spanned 25 major cities, ‘Leah Kate’ on her debut North American tour of 22 major cities, and ‘Boys Like Girls’ on the last 5 shows of their fall tour. They recently joined Charlotte Sands across 24 major cities as direct support on the US leg of her ”Can We Start Over?” world tour.
