New electronic pop band Populis debuts its first-ever song, “Come Alive,” today via the band’s YouTube page.
The band is the latest and main musical project of Trey Pearson, best known as frontman of the rock/pop/electronic Everyday Sunday. Populis formed while Pearson and co-frontman Carter Frodge began touring together, and they added Chris Schultz to complete their trio.
In April, Pearson addressed Everyday Sunday fans to introduce them to Populis and to let them know that Everyday Sunday is on hiatus. He also promised new music and a tour would follow this summer. It appears Populis is making good on that promise.
Up until now, Populis has functioned mainly as a production team, most notably having remixed Bleachers’ song “I Wanna Get Better.” (Listen to that here.)
An anthemic rallying cry, debut single “Come Alive” encourages people to “see the world through new eyes” and share hope.
“It’s fun and refreshing to start something new and be a part of something new with these guys,” Pearson said, referring to his bandmates Frodge and Schultz.
