As we take a closer look at our ideals and the overarching idea of the “American Dream”, TOPANGA releases the Inauguration-relevant single “American Promises”. We’ve got the exclusive premiere of the track as we get even more excited for their EP, which drops next month.
TOPANGA has somehow found a way to take the uncertainty and fear the majority of us are feeling on a regular basis – a heightened sense of such this week – and transform it into an upbeat, sticky sweet track. As they bounce between guilt-fueled statements (“Older sister, golden sister promise you will make me proud”) and lines that indicate a certain martyrdom in the every day (“And the dreamin’ we keep underground … Laid me down on your neon cross”), you’re overcome with the feeling that you’re not alone in your individual pursuits.
Raise that collective consciousness, TOPANGA.
