Northwest Indiana-based progressive-powerpop band stop.drop.rewind are sharing their new video for “Air Quotes,” the lead single from their new album, Heavy Love.

The trio combine the energy and spirit of pop punk with the expressive, improvisational elements of jazz and soaring intricacies of progressive rock, bringing forth their unique, genre-splicing sound. stop.drop.rewind have brought their energetic live show to venues across the Midwest and beyond, playing in 13 U.S. states, completing multiple tours to Texas to play SXSW, and sharing the stage with bands like Real Friends, Hawthorne Heights, Secondhand Serenade, The Misfits, The Spill Canvas, and more.

According to a quote from the band, they identified the song as a candidate for the album’s single early on in the writing process, even before the song was finished.

“This was one that we didn’t have to agonize over too much; once the chorus was written, everything else pretty much just fell into place around it. A lot of our favorites from our catalog were written that way, so that was an encouraging sign. The song has great energy and is already a ton of fun to play live. The working title was ‘Blink 182 Guy Song,’ which feels even more appropriate after the guitar, tone, and video choices we made for it! It was fun to capture the essence of the band that got us into playing music in the first place while still pushing our art forward into 2022.”
