Pop punk act THE LOSERS CLUB share new poem inspired single “She’s From Chicago”

2 mins read

Pop Punk trio, THE LOSERS CLUB, hits the ground running with a brand new single and lyric video, “She’s From Chicago,” available on all streaming platforms on February 25, 2022. Inspired by a poem written by Cass (guitar/co-lead vocalist), “She’s From Chicago” is a Grease-like summer love song and living in the moment of a summer fling.

The single is actually about someone based in Chicago, The Losers Club wanted to pay homage to blues and incorporated brass into the chorus and the bridge section. This song isn’t meant to sound like a modern pop-punk song.

“It’s fun, it’s relatable and a little rough around the edges. Just like us as people. This song is about not thinking too much and just enjoying the moment, so we hope you do just that. Sing along and enjoy the ride with us.” – Cass

“I wrote the poem about someone I met and always knew it would be a song.” – comments Cass (guitar/co-lead vocalist).

“When we said goodbye I ripped the pages out of my journal and gave it to her in an envelope. By the time we started working on our next releases I had a riff idea and a melody, which most of the words from the poem fit quite well. I lot of things thematically were inspired by “Summer Lovin” from Grease. We wanted to keep it simple, really just focus on the words, but with an old school groove The chorus was a bit of struggle however. Tristin (our bass player/co-lead vocalist) and I just sang the title of the poem in unison and thought…”Oh my god that’s the chorus!” So the song was really in the poem the whole time, we just had to make it all fit together.”

The Losers Club is a three-piece American punk rock band from Denver, Colorado.

Cass Braido (guitar/co-lead vocalist) and Tristin Pounders (bass/co-lead vocalist) had been in and out of projects together since early 2019 but found common ground outside of a casino bathroom in Las Vegas where Cass showed Tristin early demos of what would become The Losers Club.

The project would be put on hold, however, as the world shut down to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Months of isolated practice commenced and a number of auditions later Cade Ralston (drums) was added to the group to complete the trio.

By late 2020 the band had independently released three singles (Radio Faces, Eloise, and Steady as She Goes) recorded and mixed in Cass’ basement. The singles allowed the group to begin booking a string of shows and save up money to book actual studio time.

By the summer of 2021, they began receiving a positive reception from the Denver punk scene due to their charming on-stage antics and studio-produced singles, post notably “Freak Like Me”.

2022 is slated to be the band’s biggest year so far with shows booked at some of Denver’s premier venues and opening for large national touring acts.

Check out The Losers Club open for KennyHoopla in Denver, CO on April 13, 2022, at the Blue Bird Theater. You can buy tickets here.
