Indie rock quartet Cende formed in 2013 while living at Brooklyn house venue David Blaine’s The Steakhouse, and bonding over their mutual admiration for punk band The Marked Men. They had just graduated from SUNY Purchase, the college that was early home to Double Double Whammy—the label founded by LVL UP, a band in which members of Cende also play.

On their debut full-length, the group contrast the melodic and the offbeat, marrying “sunny power pop instrumentals to devastated breakup songs and existential freakouts for a confusing but exciting dissonance,” . It’s out on Double Double Whammy.

Although short and sweet, this bands first EP captures the energy and solidity of a punk-rock band. Each track is strong and leaves me wanting more.

CENDE is: Cameron Wisch, Dave Medina, Bernard Casserly, Greg Rutkin.
