We hear a lot of bands these days that offer up their own take on power-pop. Some mix it with elements of punk. Others go for a more 80’s feel. But very few take those elements and also reach back into the magic elements of 60’s power-pop, with its slightly psychedelic feel and bring it into the 21st century. The Strokes tried but don’t quite pull it off, but that is precisely what Stereo Three-Sixty accomplishes.  In fact, this group lands somewhere between The Strokes and Weezer. And that’s a great thing.

The album starts off with “Superstar” and you are immediately transported back to the late 60’s. Yeah, it’s retro and all, but damned if it doesn’t sound great! There is a reason that music is still popular today, and Stereo Three-Sixty seem to recognize that. 

“Automatic” gives us a bit of the 80’s new wave ala Split Endz. Some may consider it “emo” but it’s so much better than that.  In fact, this is what most of the “emo” by the numbers band should aspire to create. 

This disc is loaded with plenty of ear candy. If you have a sweet spot of guitar driven power-pop with a heavy emphasis on melodic hooks then you will find a lot of love with this group. 

Stereo Three-Sixty is a testament to the fact that you can look back to those who came before and adopt the best elements of that music and make it all your own. This band does have what it takes to go the distance and are definitely a group to keep your eye on for great things to come. 


Official Bio

The Los Angeles music scene is one of the hardest markets in the country to be an honest self-reflecting music artist in. Surrounded by musicians who either play in 3 or 4 groups at a time or try to follow the trends to generate some momentary fleeting attention for themselves and not necessarily their music, Stereo 360 is a notable difference.

Focused and driven by the messages in their songs, Stereo 360 builds upon the musical and songwriting influences of past and present artists such as Nirvana, Cheap Trick, Split Enz and The Cars. Artists who all emphasized melodic guitar-driven Alternative Pop/Rock songs that featured   an  epic  rock  drama  to   them. These  elements   can  all  be found  in their debut album, Enjoy Your Life Poolside. 

This debut release, produced, engineered and mixed by Ryan Greene (NOFX, Tonic, Lagwagon) acts as an introduction into the group's philosophy and ideas. A message to take an honest look as to where you are in your life. To question yourself about what is real and what is not. These messages can be clearly seen in songs such as Superstar and Sick Of You. 

Superstar, a song which brings to light the shallow and arrogant desire of some other artists to not use their music as a source of communication with others but only as a source of financial hunger. 

While the song, Sick Of You, questions why you choose at times to live in a state of depression. One in which you hate everything about your  life including the people around you. 

In a time when we are flooded by a resurgence of one hit wonders, it is refreshing to see that a group like Stereo 360 not only cares what is in their music, they make sure that it comes out loud and clear.
