The band describe themselves as a mixture of “pop punk bands like The Story So Far to hardcore bands like Kublai Khan. We all like different things but enjoy bringing our ideas together to create something new. Our sound is a perfect blend of light and dark, heavy and soft and aggression and passion. We have a lot of influences from many genres but IMMERSE definitely takes most of theirs from the Pop punk and Hardcore area of music. We manage to sound fresh and familiar at the same time.”
