Pop punk trio July Crowd make things “Complicated” with new single

The British Columbia outfit nod to the best of the late 90’s/early 00’s scene, with the emo intonations of their present day contemporaries also front and center.

Speaking on the single, lead vocalist Dom Walters shares: “The song is primarily about self-discovery after being walked out on;
the verses explore self-reflection in the fallout, while the chorus stands defiantly and casts the blame. We wanted to produce this one very modern, while still blending the classic feel of 2000’s pop punk.”

From working retail in Prince George, BC, Dom Walters, Niko Stivanakis, and Nic Faller’s professional relationship quickly blossomed into a personal one. The three young men would find common ground jamming Goldfinger and blink-182 on old electric guitars and a cheap drum set. The July Crowd fuse was lit.

Debut EP Roses & Adderall showed their potential, but it was 2023 EP Seat of Your Pants that emerged as a shining beacon of the band’s capabilities. The sophomore collection showcased a potent and thoroughly infectious soundscape, with driving guitars and soaring choruses underpinning the Canadian trio’s output.

New single “Complicated” is July Crowd’s first new music of 2024 and sees the band at their infectious, moreish best. The new track is adorned with mighty singalongs, and punchy skate punk hooks; a simmering early summer anthem for pop-punk fans everywhere.
