listen hear! Pom Pom Squad mix girl group and punk influences on "Head Cheerleader"
listen hear! spotlights a song we like and think you will too
The Brooklyn-based four-piece band Pom Pom Squad recently released their anxiously awaited debut album ‘Death of a Cheerleader’ to wide critical acclaim. Led by powerhouse front person Mia Berrin, the band mixes girl group and punk influences resulting in catchy pop songs that pack a heavy punch.
One of our favorite songs on the album is “Head Cheerleader.” It’s a grungy track of defiance about trading a desire for external approval/acceptance for self-actualization, which also includes backing vocals by Tegan Quin (Tegan & Sara).
