The members of Popsiclestickairport are fully aware that their name generates some distinct reactions. If anything, the Gilbert-based group — composed of singer Rhys Green, guitarists Kaden Heyl and Ethan Webb, bassist Gage Powers, and drummer Gunner Burton — happily welcome it all.”The person who came up with that name is actually not in the band anymore,” Green says. “They’ve moved on, which kind of makes it even more funny. We’re stuck with this silly, confusing name.”

He added, “I guess the idea is to always focus on the music. I’ve just wanted to make music and the name was never a thing. So when someone else just came up with the name, we just ran with it. I’ve always thought that the whole process [of being in a band] is going to be against the grain. When you’re going to carry the banner that says ‘Popsiclestickairport,’ everyone’s going to scoff, and that’s going against the grain.”

It’s a tendency toward the bizarre-but-meaningful that the members, all of whom are in their early 20s, have carried with them since becoming friends in middle school.

“We had this thing called Physics Boys, which was an abomination,” Green says. “It was this kind of tongue-in-cheek rap group where we rapped about, like, whipping the golf cart in the cul de sac.”
