To County Grind's knowledge, there is only one Cassadee Pope, lead singer for West Palm Beach pop-punk act Hey Monday. Judging by the just-released video for "I Don't Wanna Dance," the first single off the band's forthcoming EP, Beneath It All, Pope has found a way (via teleportation, perhaps) to both perform and be a spectator at the same time.
The song itself finds Hey Monday, subject of Christine Borges' recent feature about Warped Tour 2010, amid glossy production that could land this young quintet even more of a following among Top 40 enthusiasts who are already digging HM's cover of Jason DeRulo's "In My Head." Watch the video, directed by Petro Papahadjopoulos (TV on the Radio, Backstreet Boys) below.
