Rock trio POUNDERS recently premiered the lead single, “Separate Ways” off their upcoming, untitled album on PureVolume. The track is now available for free download through the band’s official SoundCloud.
“Separate Ways” represents a shift in the band’s sound, as they expand their influences beyond the world of punk-rock. “We were all listening to The Police at the time,” says vocalist/guitarist Chris Pounders. “We loved how they incorporated reggae and rock and integrity into their music. I was also going through a break up at the time and hadn’t written about it. So, I sat down and wrote ‘Separate Ways’ with The Police in mind. Once we all sat back and listened to it, we felt really good about it.”
The new style prompted PureVolume to note that “it is always important for a band to explore new influences and mature their sound, and POUNDERS hit the nail right on the head. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.”
