Few bands take up as much space on MySpace.com as Sunrise Elementary. The Glendale "pop/synth/piano/rock" quintet lists more than 130 bands as "influences," from the audible (Reggie and the Full Effect, Hello Goodbye, The Postal Service, The Ataris) to the abstract (Dido, James Taylor, Vivaldi, REO Speedwagon).
