From upbeat, tongue-in-cheek tunes to lovelorn songs about girls, Arizona band The Summer Set seemed to already have all the bases covered to be considered a good pop rock act. One problem: they don’t want to just be good. They want to be great. No, they want to be legendary. And if their upcoming release (entitled after that very characteristic) is any indication, they’re going to get it. In fact, they may very well surpass it. ‘Legendary’ is not only the band’s favorite record thus far, but their best effort to date. It’s the definition of pop rock, and even more accurately, the very definition of The Summer Set. Pair the uplifting lyrics about living life to the fullest and being the best you can be with the band’s Half Moon Kids campaign, which will help fans achieve their dreams and meet new friends, and the quintet has proven that there is so much more to them than the world has seen. Finishing up their Wake Up and Be Awesome Tour in Dallas with a sold out House of Blues crowd, the band found a few minutes to perform a stripped-down version of their current single “Boomerang” and chat with us about the best moments of the tour, the new record, and give a shout-out to the fan who inspired it all.
