Meet The Sweats

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Sweats.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
We are The Sweats! We formed in 2014 under the name ‘The Melting Suns’, and have evolved from a rock band into an alt-pop group with influences ranging from The Cure to 1975. In the beginning, we would only play together in the summer time due to members living in different states. In 2016, we all graduated high school and were able to play together with no separation for the first time. Over the years, we have been looking for a sound we felt was uniquely ours, and with our 2017 single ‘Bloom’, it was apparent we were headed in the right direction.

Please tell us about your art.
We make music for people to dance to and feel their feelings with no shame. We hope that the people who listen to our music feel inspired to be true to themselves and others. We like to combine upbeat and catchy tunes with lyrics of grief or hurt for people to relate to but also enjoy.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Be nice to other bands and make friends! Lose the ego and realize that we’re all trying to make it in the same game. Show your love and support to others and they will show it back. Actually listen to other peoples’ work and give them feedback! Go see other local bands!

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Our music can be found on all platforms digital music is sold and streamed.
