Denver-based rock trio Single File are set to release Common Struggles, their full length debut, on April 7th.
“The title ‘Common Struggles’ says it all – I’m not pretending that any of what I’ve dealt with is new, it’s just the human condition,” says lead vocalist/guitarist/bassist Sloan Anderson, explaining the choice of title for Single File’s album, which was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance The All-American Rejects, Less Than Jake).
The pairing between super-producer and the three bandmates from Denver resulted in an exuberant, adrenaline-fueled album that simultaneously celebrates and subverts classic pop songwriting, with a tip of the hat to musical forebears such as Tom Petty, Weezer and the Beatles. The aforementioned combo is no more apparent than on “Mannequin Loveseat,” the first track released from Common Struggles. Not only does the song showcase their quirky pop sensibility but the video encapsulates it to a tee. Check out the making of the video here.
