SUPER AMERICAN release new video “Sloppy Jazz”

SUPER AMERICAN
SUPER AMERICAN from Buffalo, NY have just signed with Take This To Heart Records and they are premiering the music video for their first single Sloppy Jazz. The song comes from their upcoming album Disposable which will be released April 7th on CD/Digital via Take This To Heart Records. Anyone who is into early-mid 90’s alt/rock with a modern twist should really give this band a spin. The video was directed by Andy DeLuca.

“We made the video with Andy DeLuca—a world class talent. We’re constantly inspired by his art. This year alone he’s worked alongside Kendrick Lamar, the 1975, Wolf Alice as well as Late Night With Seth Meyers,”- Matt Cox (Singer/Guitarist)

Disposable will be out April 7th on CD/Digital via Take This To Heart Records. Catch them on tour this spring.

The label commented:

We live in a weird point in time that seems to glorify being said, but you wouldn’t know it when listening to Super American. Disposable is a collection of songs that borrow from and build upon the building blocks laid by the pop rock of the 80s and 90s. One listen to “Sloppy Jazz” and the infectious “Na-na-na’s” that make up the chorus will recall the likes of “Angel is the Centerfold” and leave you singing along, smiling from ear to ear.

There’s a care-free, youthful energy to the songs on Disposable, and although we’ve got two different vocalists and songwriters, these songs build upon one another to create the perfect album to start the new year with. Like “Sloppy Jazz”, the rest of the Matt Cox songs tend to feel more inspired by the likes of 80’s pop rock; huge organ swells and the perfectly wordy hooks lend themselves to some of the most Summery sing-a-longs. The Pat Feeley songs feel like they were ripped from the late 90’s; each of them feels like they could have fronted any of the decade’s handful of coming-of-age movies.

These moments continue to build until we hit “Rebel’s Yell.” The song starts out acoustic and takes you out of the moment, but only for a second. The song feels like a Holy moment; from the chorus running high on “hallelujahs” to the moment when the music starts to pick up. This song is the pinnacle of everything they’ve strived to create, and the perfect note to end on.

Lyrics:

i loosen up to sloppy jazz
but i’m more of a dancer than i am a tapper
i left you petrified
where did i learn to be so cold?

my god, life’s short
you spin, then you go
it’s something you wear
it’s something you grow
they say good faith will find it’s way through
i’m knocking on wood
i’m hoping its true

i send only good graces to ya
all is well, i’m just tired of licking the bone

all my life spent circling the side
she’s never coming back

my god, life’s short
you spin, then you go
i’m waiting on you
i’m skinny as hell
I’ve got one bid, you see it all through
i tell you its straight
i show you its true

i was always itchin’, always bitchin’
always watching television
never really cared what i said
in a new town, foreign ground
finally had to turn around
never really cared how it sit
