Summer Dregs

Summer Dregs

 Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA

Summer Dregs is aggressively ecstatic indie pop reminiscent of Passion Pit, Four Tet...Electric Light Orchestra? Summer Dregs slays the listener with a perpetual roller coaster of emotion, providing a sweaty, tearful dance party revolution of love.


What began as a recording project in 2009 has now (2013) grown into a ferocious live band.

The mastermind of Summer Dregs, Carl Cadwell, decided to begin a recording collaboration with various musicians "of greater talent" in the wake/implosion of electro-groove-hop band, Infradig. Working with Infradig drummer, Josh Green, Cadwell began to refine his craft for songwriting and electronic production. Cadwell utilized the vocal prowess and songwriting mastery of Stephen Nichols, owner and producer at As Elyzum recording studio in Chattanooga, TN.

Fast forward to autumn, 2012. Summer Dregs is now a concentrated, intentional, and aggressive live band incorporating the tasteful bass playing of Travis Knight (who played in another band with Cadwell and Green, The Distribution). Despite a somewhat overwhelming musical inbreeding, 2013 has seen the band, within a very short time frame, packing out clubs in Tennessee, performing with bands such as Lotus, Heypenny, and How I Became the Bomb.

Major influences of the band include Passion Pit, The Postal Service, Four Tet, Bjork, Squarepusher, and Dntel.

Rising from the ashes of bands such as Infradig, The Distribution, Annie, and Actress, the members of Summer Dregs are seasoned and focused on innovation and spawning dance parties.
