Overthoughts Reignites Your Skate Park Playlist With “Trust Me”

by Daniel Warren Hill

The latest single from Baltimore-based genre-bending pop/rock band Overthoughts is a little sneaky. “Trust Me” starts as a ballad but quickly swells into every (fantastic) memory I have of playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. These seasoned veterans of the local music scene are in the vein of local sounds by Ballyhoo! or Bumpin Uglies and you’ll pick up on those familiar Reel Big Fish influences as well. 

Overthoughts originated out of the need for Kevin, Alec, Mike, and Will to produce music outside of their former primary project, Vans Warped Tour alumni band Stacked Like Pancakes. Together, Overthoughts is achieving a sound that is lyrically grounded in everyday experiences and musically based on everything you love about a 90’s ska/punk skate sound.

Give it a listen and give yourself a mid-week pick me up. The music video has some really humorous moments that feel perfectly natural and will have you smiling with the band in real-time.

This track has been added to our Alchemical Weekly Spotify Playlist and YouTube Playlist. You can find Overthoughts as a guest on the Alchemicast podcast with Andy Reed on this week’s episode.
