Cheem – Shine Sprite (2018)

Hartford emo band Cheem has released a new song “Shine Sprite.” It is their first since last year’s excellent album Downhill.

“Shine Sprite” is both classic Cheem and an interesting transitional song for the band: While it showcases the band’s trademark instrumental prowess and back and forth vocals from duel frontmen Sam Nazz and Skye Holden, it doesn’t actually sound much like emo or even pop punk. Trading off emo’s autumnal skateboarding soundtrack, the band synthesizes its increasingly diverse influences to create a surfing, summer jaunt that looks forward to the next phase of Cheem.
