Cheerleader Smile Through the Haze on ‘Sunshine of Your Youth’
The Philadelphia power-pop quintet's full-length debut is out May 19 via Bright Antenna Records
Cheerleader, a Philly haze-pop outfit whose music sounds every bit as peppy as their name, are ingeniously releasing their debut album, The Sunshine of Your Youth, just in time for summer. The LP, which comes produced courtesy of Mark Needham (the Killers, Bloc Party), showcases a series of fizzy, blurry-eyed tracks: “A Million Ways” combines dream-rock guitar riffs with sugary-sweet melodies, while the whimsically synthy “Dreamer” glides into shoegaze territory with frontman Joe Haller’s lo-fi vocals at the forefront.
