In 2011, singer Awsten Knight and bassist Gage Matthieu recruited friends to form Waterparks in hopes to break away from a Houston music scene dominated by hardcore bands. Now a trio, the guys try not to focus on one specific genre. “We have some songs that sound really pop-punk, then more rock songs, then dancey stuff, and even some electronic workings,” says Knight. They know that patience wears thin for opening bands, so they want to get their music out as much as possible. “Nobody likes going to a show and not knowing any of the songs,” resigns Knight. “It's boring and you're usually waiting for the set to end.”
