SUMif
SUMif
SUMif is a San Francisco-based electro-pop outfit spearheaded by Steph Wells. Inspired by artists such as Ellie Goulding, Jack Garratt, and Tove Lo, the project released ten singles from 2016 to 2017 – including the #1 Hype Machine hit “Lay Down” – and has since opened for VÉRITÉ, Ella Vos, RKCB, Lauv, Little Boots, and KUČKA. Joined onstage by synth/guitarist Rahi Kumar, SUMif is what The Bay Bridged calls "an enormous roar" and “one of [2016's] best female vocalists" according to Indie Shuffle.

Right now, pop music seems to equal perfection. The beats are sparse and plump, the synths are crisp and minimalistic, the vocals are ironed into smooth velvet. These are all the sounds we've come to associate with radio-ready pop music - with "coolness".

But what if they weren't?

We used to think that being "pop" in the modern era meant being immaculate - that there was no space for a band that wants to make big, bright messy songs to capture the chaos and melodrama of feeling alive

We think there's enough perfection out there now and that music is ready for something that isn't afraid to be unrestrained and expressive. Anyways, pop is always folding in upon itself, looking for new ways to express familiar sensations. So why not change the formula again?

We think it's time.

Let the wild rumpus start.
