Overexposed by Sleep On It - Marquis is telling the truth. Overexposed is a far more dynamic release than Lost Along The Way, offering a pitch perfect combination of modern pop-punk anthems and emotionally-driven songwriting blended with just enough alternative influence to help the group stand out from their genre peers. Their music is as much a product of the mid-2000s Warped Tour headliners they seem to worship as it is the realities of living in the world today. It's hopeful realism grounded by the burden of our trying times, which is not an easy perspective to capture. "Making time to focus on the album and write was difficult, but once we all got into a room things started coming together," Pluister tells me. "Me and TJ (Horansky, Sleep On It's lead guitarist, backup vocalist, and co-songwriter) had an idea for what we wanted the album to sound like. We wanted an ebb and flow, we tell people all the time, it's like you listen to From Under The Cork Tree or Ocean Avenue, anything from those early-2000s, there's such good highs and lows in those records that keep you wanting to hear what the next song is going to be so going into the record it was definitely a thought of 'we want to do that'.
