listen hear! Pom Pom Squad mix girl group and punk influences on "Head Cheerleader"

Sammy Ray Nelson

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).

Catch the listen hear! Song of the Day each weekday morning at 11:10.
