Los Angeles, California’s alt-pop quartet Varsity Week is thrilled to announce their debut EP, If Only You Knew?, is set for release on June 23, 2017 via Another Century Records (Century Label Group/Sony). The five song EP was produced by Jim Kaufman [Atlas Genius, Night Riots, Anti-Flag] and Kenny Carkeet [Night Riots, Anti-Flag], and showcases Varsity Week’s impressive ability for crafting addictive pop hooks. As described by AXS, Varsity Week “fuses fun and talent to deliver a zestful sound in a way that only true indie artists can do,” with each track encompassing both a soulful and nostalgic sound, and a hint of 90’s alt-bubblegum flair.

 

Vocalist Brandon Eisenbeis explains, “We wanted to make something we all loved and would continue to be proud of for the rest of our lives. It's that simple. Working with Jim Kaufman and Kenny Carkeet was extraordinary, they were able to hone in our influences from all eras and genres, and weren't afraid of letting us work those ideas. They gave us free range in the studio and when we went in with no rules, we came out ourselves, Varsity Week.”

 

If Only You Knew? features Varsity Week’s acclaimed single “Anyways,” which hit #1 and is currently #3 on the Top 5 of KROQ’s Locals Only show-- a weekly program on The World Famous KROQ which features some of the best local music coming out of Los Angeles. It is currently the leading track on Alternative Press Magazine’s “Discover” playlist on Spotify, and Twist Magazine has described the song as “pretty inspirational,” while adding that they were certain readers would “become obsessed with [Varsity Week’s] infectious music.” The visually stunning music video for “Anyways” was directed by Ryan Pesecky, and is currently in rotation at Gold’s Gym, Bally’s Fitness, and a number of fitness facilities nationwide.
