In an attempt to re-examine the morals and values of Chinese culture, pop-punk band Summer Sunshine is releasing their self-titled debut album, supported by a nationwide tour across China. Their album follows the idea that to be rebellious and to disagree with a system does not necessarily mean to be 'dark' or 'violent'. "Summer Sunshine" promotes the uprising of China's youth, who are increasingly demanding to be given more chances to prosper doing what they love rather than following their societal constraints. The band follows a certain ideology that 'growing up' does not mean having the highest education, nor following what they call a hypocritical society.

In August of 2012, Summer Sunshine released a music video for their new song "Give Young People More Opportunities 《给中国的年轻人更多机会》". The video features it's members enthusiastically performing the song with cut scenes of the lead vocalist in what seems to be a 'teen' bar. This video flies at 100 miles an hour, delivering a strong heartfelt performance as well as a great display of teen angst.

In addition to "Give Young People More Opportunities," the band has released two more songs on their douban page that will appear on the upcoming record. "All for You 《全都是为你》" is quite a bit heavier than "Give Young People More Opportunities", displaying the band's background in punk music. It's quite a bit more aggressive, yet the smooth vocals allow the power of their lyrics to really push the music.

"Summer Sunshine" also released "New Air 《新空气》", an alternative power ballad reminiscent of Blink 182's "Rock Show". This track shows that while their style may fall under the same category for each song, there still is quite a discrepancy between them. This song utilizes more of a basic 'one person sings at a time', whereas "Give Young People More Opportunities" and "All for You" feature more harmonies and vocal patterns that allow the band to synchronize and really get that full chorus sound used, in a sense, to symbolize teenage revolution or upheaval.

We can expect much more of this on their debut album and certainly expect a riveting live performance from Summer Sunshine as they venture off onto their largest tour yet. The tour will be highlighted on September 9th, as the band has been invited to play as the Changsha Orange Isle Music Festival.
