If you’ve listened to any of the playlists I’ve curated for the past few months, you know that I have a very broad, eclectic music taste. However, I do tend to stray one of two ways: indie pop, or indie pop-punk. For today’s recs, I reached out to three of my favorite bands that remind me of Blink-182, and they were kind enough to answer a Q&A That I’m SO excited to share with you! I may not have been born for most of the 90s, but I know a good Blink comp when I hear one! Here are three great bands you NEED to check out if you love Blink-182.

Modern Maps Promo
1. Modern Maps

I was lucky enough to see Modern Maps in concert at Emo Nite! Their sound is addicting, and I don’t think I’ve come across a song of theirs that I don’t like! I’ve come to rely on “Modern Maps Radio” on Spotify as my work day music. They were cool enough to answer these questions:

Sam: What genre would you categorize your music as?

Modern Maps: Alt/Rock/Disco-Grunge from Los Angeles, Ca (for fans of The Band Camino, The Cure, Hall & Oats) 

Sam: Who are your biggest musical influences?

Modern Maps: Our influences include; The Cure, Parcels, Hall & Oats, Scissor Sisters, and basically anything that allows you be sad but still makes you wanna dance.

Sam: What’s one song you’d like new fans to check out?

Modern Maps: If you’re new to Modern Maps, you’re going to want to start with our newest single, “Sweet Talk”. Also, we just got done recording A LOT of brand new songs so be on the lookout for new releases VERY soon! -MMuch love

I, for one, can’t wait for this promised new music! Check out Modern Maps on Spotify. And check out their rec, and mine, below.

2. Sleep On It

My brother Shane has always been a huge influence on my music taste. He introduced me to Sleep On It a few weeks ago, and I immediately fell in love with their album Pride and DisasterThey were nice enough to answer these questions!

Sam: What genre would you categorize your music as?

Sleep On It: I would say we are pop-rock. It’s hard to categorize one’s own music in to a specific genre, but we draw influences from a lot of different genres. 

Sam: Who are your biggest musical influences?

Sleep On It: Bands like Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday and Yellowcard make up our musical DNA, but we’re influenced by a lot of different artists. Recently, I would say The Band Camino, Kacey Musgraves and Jimmy Eat World.

Sam: What’s one song you’d like new fans to check out?

Sleep On It: I would share “Under the Moment” or “After Tonight”.

After Tonight” is my personal favorite. Check it out below!

3. Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune popped up in my Discover Weekly on Spotify. God bless those playlist algorithms! Thanks to Miss Fortune for answering my Q&A.

Sam: What genre would you categorize your music as?

Miss Fortune: We are an international rock group who injects elements of plaintive emo and driving metalcore into our soaring and melodic sound. 

Sam: Who are your biggest musical influences?

Miss Fortune: Our current musical influences would have to be Nirvana, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, A Day To Remember.

Sam: What’s one song you’d like new fans to check out?

Miss Fortune: They should check out the song “Die For You” 🙂

My personal favorite of theirs is “Sunflower,” so I’ve included that below.

I hope one of these bands becomes your new favorite!
