Los Angeles-based pop duo The Underclassmen have made the most out of their 2019.
The Underclassmen — consisting of good friends Justin Cole and Dan Picarel — formed earlier this year and dropped their debut single/music video, “Former Life.” They didn’t waste much time before following it up with their second, exciting single “Dive In.”
They’ve quickly become one of our favorite bands this year here at Substream — you can find our interview with The Underclassmen from July — and we are excited to be teaming up with the band to exclusively premiere their third single, “Fly With Me.”
The single — which was co-written, produced and mixed by Curtis Douglas, with additional production by Drew Alexander and mastered by Chris Gehringer — is an important and incredibly personal song from the Underclassmen, speaking on self love and acceptance. “This song comes from a lot of personal experiences I have had of trying to fit in with different communities and groups. Over time, I realized that accepting myself creates our own community of people who love you for who you are,” Picarel tells Substream.
“It is truly a message of self acceptance and confidence in who you are,” adds Cole. “Accepting yourself gives you a sense of what feels like flight, in that you’re free to fly above the pressures and self-consciousness that hold so many of us back.”
”Fly With Me” will hit all streaming services tomorrow, December 6th, but right now you can find our premiere below.
