Oakville, Ontario's SEAWAY plays your older sibling's brand of pop punk. Their music harkens back to a day when the genre centred around fun and didn't drive towards being either too pop or too punk. They strike that "just right" chord the genre is sorely missing among peers that lean towards being too heavy and metallic, or too soft and melancholic. It's a sound that instills an internal need to have a beer-fueled super soaker fight, or climb the rafters at a cottage party (all actual occurrences at past Seaway shows and video shoots).
SEAWAY's good old fashioned style brings up memories of American Pie films, songs about girls and parties, and a generally more fun atmosphere than can be found anywhere else. Following their 2014 EP All In My Head, the five Canucks from Oakville, ON released their sophomore full length Colour Blind via Pure Noise and New Damage Records on October 23rd, after spending the entire summer with Vans Warped Tour. The band is set to continue touring North America and Europe in 2016 with other notable bands of the genre.
