“Reflections is everything that a good summer pop-punk EP should be; it’s catchy and memorable, with vocals and lyrics that are easy to sing along with. The final track, “Rosemount,” is a really good example of this. The chorus is very memorable and catchy, and the instrumentation is some of the strongest on the EP as it feels the most balanced and hosts some strong guitar and bass work.”

“The sound that The New Varsity delivers can be best described as an equally portioned mix of the bands Rufio and The Story So Far. The music is fast, upbeat and paired with male vocals in the higher vocal register, but also deals with darker topics including anxiety, quarter life crises, and relationships gone sour.”

“The New Varsity is a dynamic pop punk band from Claremont, CA who have been gaining a good deal of fans with their wildly infectious tunes. Running Out Of Time is their second album to date, a self-released collection of rocking gems that possess a good deal of enthusiasm and mass appeal. The New Varsity recently made their way out to the Cobalt Cafe in Canoga Park for a wondrously exhilarating class in the vibrant sounds of pop punk”

“There was an era of punk that was born with the likes of ’90s bands like Blink 182 and Jimmy Eat World. Even if the style has changed over time, The New Varsity is bringing it back the pop-punk that you love and remember.”
