From Wisconsin, Of Brighter Skies brings Pop Punk back to its ultimate form. Beautiful vocal melodies with equally matched guitar tones truly elevate this song to the next level. The song is properly called Sweater Weather off of their album 'Nowhere Kids' and comes with this super fun music video. The video, like the music, has almost a nostalgic pop punk flavor to it that's completely undeniable. I've always been a sucker for Pop Punk so this is just my guilty cup of tea. overall I love everything about this. We had a quick chat with the Jordan Pulley (Vocals) about the release.
Thanks for taking the time, could you please tell our readers more about the band?
We are a Pop Punk band from the Midwest based out of Madison, Wisconsin. Our band is comprised of Jordan Pulley, vocalist, Victor Roman, Lead Guitar, and Alec Prange, Rhythm Guitar. We’re best friends trying to make an impact and having fun while we’re at it.
How much fun was filming this music video?
First off, we have never jerry-rigged a mattress to a car with the sole purpose of being dragged while clutching unicorns. That said, I think the filming process was extremely fun. The whole video was supposed to be as fun filming as it is to watch.
What is the meaning of the song "Sweater Weather"?
The song is about a time when you have to go to work, but you realize your car is covered in snow. It’s about when you go to the movies wearing a hoodie and walking out to a blizzard, needing a winter coat. It’s about the Midwest lifestyle. Yet for some reason, we never leave, because this song is about home.
What are the long term and short term plans for the band?
In the words of The Plain White T’s: “I’ll pay the bills with this guitar”. We want to play music for as many people as we can, but more than that, we want to play music for ourselves. We want to be a dedicated touring band with label recognition. We want to go as far as we can and leave a legacy in the process.
Anything else you want our readers to know?
I (Jordan) remember a time when we were halfway through packing up after a set, Alec told Victor and I that someone who came out to see us missed our set because he was late. Alec asked us if we could play him at least one song. Without hesitation, in less than fifteen minutes, we were ready to go. I (Jordan) never want to lose that mindset. In short, we want the readers to know that there is nothing and no one too small. Our music is about you.
