The track showcases Start The Week Over’s mellow but toe-tapping brand of power-pop, intricate synth/guitar interplay dancing amidst the infectious lead vocal of Bobby Gioiosa.
Return Records Founder Jonathan Sherman discussed the signing: “From the first moment we heard Start the Week Over on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, we knew the band would be a success, not only for their powerful rock ballads and synth-inspired dance grooves, but because they have the heart and minds necessary to push the music industry to new heights. We are so excited to have them aboard and can’t wait for You on My Mind to come out.”
With the release of the debut EP ‘Wonderland’ in 2020, New York’s Start The Week Over stated their ambitions with a punk seasoned, pop-rock collection, molding a sound that blends big hooks and intricate guitar work.
