Super American, the cleverest of pop punks, premiere new music
The upstate New York duo of Pat Feeley and Matt Cox start the year with a new EP that has twice the personality of their colleagues/competitors.January 16, 2020
Super American, the Buffalo, New York, pop-punk outfit, have returned to make your devices wriggle. Today AltPress is premiering not one but two tracks from their impending three-song digital EP, YOBWOC, the follow-up to their 2018 debut, Tequila Sunrise.
The first track is “Untitled,” which features dialed-down atmospherics expertly inlayed in the center of their high-spirited, fortified loud-guitar pop. The other, “Tangerine + Guava,” is two minutes of time-shifting pop goodness featuring what is truly the most inspired spate of guitar-pedal abuse we’ve heard in a while.

When asked to give a backstory about the new tracks, Super American’s dynamic multi-instrumentalist duo of Pat Feeley and Matt Cox sent an email to AltPress merely stating, “Pent-up energy. Duality. Lust. Consciousness. Storm clouds over the Atlantic Ocean.”
In contrast, Take This To Heart label founder Joseph Urban says it the best, with a lot less poetic ambition. He describes Super A’s latest work as (wait for it) “sophomore pumped,” adding, “It might be intimidating for some that Super American soft-rebooted their approach with each release. Super American 2.5 finally settles for middle ground, marrying the caffeinated pop punk of their beginnings with the sun-bleached pop-rock of their debut full-length.”
We’re down with the American’s sonic shape-shifting expertly crafted into some great tunes. And this is only the beginning: Expect more music from the duo very soon, with a full U.S. tour to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
And since you asked, YOBWOC is an acronym/text-speak for, um, “reverse cowboy.”
