The recording project of Chicago-based songwriter Evan Weiss, Into It. Over It. finds the prolific emo-pop veteran of numerous bands (The Progress, Pet Symmetry, Their / They’re / There, Couplet, Stay Ahead Of The Weather, Up Up Down Down.. and more) striking out on his own.
In Into It. Over It., Weiss blends well-crafted pop with a literate, introspective lyrical stance and vocals that acknowledge angst without surrendering to it. Weiss launched Into It. Over It. with 2007’s ambitious 52 Weeks project. He has since released countless albums, splits, eps and singles hitting his stride as a composer and arranger with 2013’s Intersections, 2016’s Standards and most recently 2020’s Figure which is Weiss showcasing his strongest and most confident artistry to date.
LIES is a new creative endeavor from Mike and Nate Kinsella.
Philadelphia’s Sweet Pill write eruptive emo songs that embrace the edges of pop and hardcore. The kind of band whose members are fully immersed in their local scene—through a handful of notable side projects and the show-promoting Philly staple 4333 Collective—the quintet’s sound takes wide-spectrum influence from its environment. The result is an amalgam of complex song structures and flourishes of technical acumen, wholly unconcerned with genre, yet evoking the specific styles of touchstones such as Paramore and Circa Survive.
