Impulsive Hearts

Danielle Sines sings, shouts, plays guitar and synth, and records noises on tape recorders. She likes melodies that remind her of summertime.
John Paul plays bass, guitar, saxophone, keys, and sings.
Dan Julian plays drums.

The band picks up where recent revivalist acts like Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast have left off, adding just a hint of indelible Midwestern sadness to the neo-girl group garage rock sound.

Sorry in the Summer is their debut album and will be available on vinyl and digital download from Beautiful Strange on February 26th. Sorry in the Summer will be available for purchase via Bandcamp, Online Store, select Chicago record stores and directly from the band. Stream via Spotify and Apple Music

Sorry in the Summer was recorded in the midst of a harsh Michigan winter in 2013.  The stark, isolated, but ultimately beautiful recording locale makes its way into each of the emotionally charged tracks. Though the jangly, dream-rock sound of Sorry in the Summer is tinged with sadness, it leaves plenty of room for dancing. The album follows two self-released tapes.




“[The] songs are studies in contrast, sweet melodies and then distortion and rage”, - Jessica Hopper, The Chicago Tribune.


“The airiness of dream pop, and the toe-tappiness of surf-pop all mixed up with the kind of fuzzy guitars that I’m a total sucker for.” – Listening Midwestward
