Flexing that "American Muscle."

Calamity the Kid's debut  Late Bloomer EP is out next month, and the LA trio released the first single from it, "American Muscle." It's a stomping look at the darker side of America today, grafted onto a a walloping central hook. That means you might not recognize its darkness at the outset, since the song is so eminently hummable.

Sadly my favorite track off the new album, the sweetly catchy if somewhat acidic "Fuckboys," but the song below at least give you an idea where the band is coming from.

There's a video for the tune here, but it felt a little too on the nose so I recommend listening to "American Muscle" before taking in the bands oracular interpretation of the song.
