Buffalo-based band Del Paxton labels its music as being both "alternative" and "emo" — two titles that certainly fit the mood of the music the band creates. The band cites acts like American Football and Third Eye Blind as being major influences, thus resurrecting an emo, math-rock sound that has been mostly neglected by bands since the early 2000's. However, while Del Paxton is clearly influenced by the aforementioned acts, its music is distinct and original, welcoming various other influences, most notably pop-punk. The band released its EP "Worst. Summer. Ever." in August of 2013, and can often be seen playing shows in the Rochester area.
