Nashville Indie Rockers, The Pressure Kids debut self-titled EP, is out now. The EP has been given praise from some high profile media outlets such as Earmilk who wrote; “The Pressure Kids are here to stay with their self-titled debut EP.” – Earmilk
The Pressure Kids have released 2 singles, “Team” and “Fever”, with “Fever” being featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday. The EP as a whole is a uniquely definitive statement, one that reveals exactly where the Pressure Kids have been, and exactly where they’re going. Since forming as college freshmen in the fall of 2013, they’ve survived lineup changes, deceptive ex-managers and sexist industry advisors. They’ve been together through thick and think, seeing each other through breakups, makeups, promotions, and graduation dinners. Through it all Nick, Allan, Katy, Justin & Zach have always connected over their love of songs that make you feel something. Melodies that score the moment you fall apart at the party, then piece yourself together on the drive home.
The Pressure Kids showcases a young band at the height of creativity and determination, pairing evocative melodies with rich instrumental textures. This EP showcases the band’s maturity, their lyrics are wise beyond their years. The 6-track EP kicks things off with the infectious “Team”. This song will quickly catch your attention, and it’s only another affirmation of how gifted they are in creating brilliant melodies. Perhaps the best example of the band’s storytelling talents is the third single “Fever”. Fitting an entire relationship into a 3-minute track, we are captivated by the choruses and we cycle through an array of emotions depicted through every chord.
This band has a bright future ahead of them, and I can’t see The Pressure Kids slowing down any time soon.

His new single “Talk Slow” is out and the music video is streaming on Alt Press. “Talk Slow” has been added to 27 New Music Friday lists on Spotify and Apple Music.

It’s the first story I wanted to share off of my, “Honestly,” EP which is truly the rawest and vulnerable look into my life; it’s like you’re reading from my diary.”
Cody Lovaas has simple and confessional lyrics in soulful vocals, melodic acoustic performances, and smooth pop production. Lovaas’s records have premiered on Billboard, Idolator, Culture Collide, Ones to Watch and We Found New Music just to name a few.
