The Over Unders are an Alt Rock duo from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, comprised of brothers Sam (Guitar and Vocals) and Matthew (Drums) Hellman. Their fresh and enthusiastic take on classic rock n’ roll is often likened to their major influences who fall all along the diverse spectrum of power pop and classic alternative. Principal songwriter Sam Hellman’s favorites come through most, giving most of their tunes a “Big Star meets Replacements, by way of Gin Blossoms” vibe. Think Old 97’s and Ted Leo too, as these are common names mentioned when describing the Over Unders’ simple but complete sound. Perhaps what sets them apart from their Eau Claire peers most is their simultaneous willingness to shoot for the stars with anthemic stadium rock songs that seek to emulate their heroes REM, and very fittingly, former brother rock giants Oasis. Above all else, The Over Unders value well crafted songs that deliver honest confessions and observations about life. Their 2022 EP No Soap Radio went to work for them, landing them a spot at legendary Minneapolis rock club 7th St. Entry, as well as an upcoming slot at Cadott, Wisconsin’s Rockfest. The band is poised to keep the momentum rolling with new singles out in July and August.
