“The future is now, unfortunately.” That is the Greg Katz line that caught with me from Cheekface’s new music. “Popular 2” comes simply months after the actually cheeky L.A. band kicked off 2023 with “The Fringe.” It is one in every of Cheekface’s most emphatically catchy and melodic songs so far, and options extra of the wry satire Katz is making a reputation for.
A press release from Katz:
Regardless that I’m involved concerning the surveillance state that the federal government has arrange, and many people rightly assume that it’s a instrument of state oppression, we’re nonetheless attempting to guard our pals and neighbors and Spy on complete strangers. Set up your self.
And like the federal government, we guys develop our personal loopy theories about what is going on on, however we’re actually most likely simply reflecting on our loneliness. Me and [bassist] Mandy Tannon wrote this little energy pop tune about that little paradox. As well as, the guitar line within the verse is loosely impressed by the verse guitar half in Van Halen’s “Panama”. RIP Eddie.
“Popular 2” has been revealed.
