Unsigned Spotlight: Scholar

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (04/19/13)
I had the pleasure of spending some time in the studio with Rochester, NY's Scholar while they recorded their full-length debut, which is due out in July. The up-and-coming pop punkers are reminiscent of Rufio, Slick Shoes and old Blink 182. I filmed their recording process and teamed up with the band to create a lyric video to share with you all. Head to the replies to check out "A Hot Dog for Your Buns." If you enjoy it, you can download it here.

The drummer looks like he could smash the drumset with one finger with those guns.

The riffs are definitely Slick Shoes-ey, but the vocals remind me of like Amber Pacific.

Wow, really good song. Sounds to me as if Much The Same were covering Rufio.

Good song but I almost didn't check it out based on the title. Do get an early Rufio vibe which is a good thing.

Haha I figured the title would be 50/50 on making people want to/not want to listen. Glad you decided to!

These guys are sweet. Saw them in Rochester when they opened up for Turnover and Young Statues in August. Very excited for the full length

Haha yeah, well good job on the RIYL. most of the times that new bands are streamed on here, the "for fans of" recommendations seem kinda off. But this was spot on. Look forward to hearing more for sure.

Thanks! I'm glad you decided to do what I'd hoped most would do, and not judge a hot dog by its bun.

The 7 song EP they have out is worth picking up, they sent me a bunch of goodies when I ordered the CD from them. Solid band, seem like really nice guys.
