Buffalo, NY indie-rock duo SUPER AMERICAN have debuted a charming new music video for “Hands Down Olivia”, via Bring The Noise. “Hands Down Olivia” is their latest single and is now available on Spotify and Apple Music. In addition to the video, the band is currently on with Have Mercy, Gleemer, and Kississippi across North America. Pre-orders for their upcoming debut album can be found here.
The track itself explores what it’s like trying to get to know someone you are interested in. More specifically: “We live in a small town where everybody knows everybody and the song is about meeting someone I knew nothing about (for once), and navigating the murky waters of trying to pursue them in this day & age,” explains Pat Feely. “The vibe of the song is the general excitement of having a crush while not being in the mood for anything serious.”
The track is built on a 4-bar drum loop that creates the band’s signature 90s-esque meets early 2000’s pop-rock sound. Combined with their clever hyper-literate lyrics, the track is the ultimate summer indie pop rock track.
