Strawberry Generation’s new song “Coffee” from their upcoming third EP, Losing Our Way, offers a fun and exciting take on sugary indie rock. 

Luk Yean, who formed the band alongside Valerie Zhu, told us about the band’s name: “‘Strawberry Generation’ is a Chinese phrase that refers to young folks who spoil easily and can’t take the heat. It’s a lament that’s often heard in Singapore (where I’m from!) but I wanted to embrace the imperfections and anxieties of our generation, thus our band name was born.” Well, I would say that the band’s sound sums up us Strawberries pretty well: inventive, romantic, and just a little awkward. 

“Coffee” is a fun, endearing song about navigating the awkward beginning stages of dating. It has everything I love to hear in modern indie rock: sparkly synths, a fun beat, a great hook, and nice dynamic between dreamy and punk guitars. 

Every year, the end of the summer is always a little bit bittersweet. Strawberry Generation is making it a little sweeter. If you need me, you can find me sitting in my school’s parking lot blasting this song through my car stereo.
