Philadelphia's Sweet Pill are currently being labelled as emo, and I guess they are, in a way. But they're emo in a way that newer bands tend to be: they drop the annoying more whiny aspects of early 00's emo and just bring the heart and fun. Their new single, "Miss This," reminds me more of 90's power pop bands like Letters to Cleo and Veruca Salt than anything else, but, sure, with a little pop punk edge. It's not a sound I would have expected to like with that description, but I would have been wrong. "Miss This" is this bouncy but incredibly earnest indie pop rocker that just sucks you in more and more with each listen.
You can listen to "Miss You" below. The song is available as a single with the B-side "Tell Me" via Know Hope Records. You can get a copy on Bandcamp. For more on Sweet Pill, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
