Issuing fuzzy fantasy pop using a psychedelic inclination, Weekender was shaped by multi-instrumentalist Derek Sheehan in Philadelphia in 2013. Produced mainly by Derek and his sibling Nic Sheehan, the self-released debut EP Spanish Peaks came that same season and was found by Brooklyn label PaperCup Music. The follow-up was postponed by an interval of shifting account while Sheehan and his touring music group contended with time jobs and various other problems of music lifestyle. However, he and different collaborators continued to develop Weekender’s popularity and gain regular support areas for national travels transferring through Philadelphia, including Surfer Bloodstream, Upcoming Islands, and Field Record, merely to name several. Eventually settling right into a lineup of Sheehan, guitarist Steven Rosplock, Dan Mudd on synths, Brendan McGeehan on bass, and Jesse Petas on drums, the music group prepared another EP, Floaty, Sense Blue, which made an appearance in January 2016. Replete with analog synths and electric guitar textures, it had been recorded, blended, and co-produced by Kyle “Slick” Johnson (Rogue Influx, the Hives) and once again released with PaperCup.
