The Right Stuff is the new single to be released by latest signings to the marvellous Loose label, The Americans.
Hailing from Los Angeles, the quartet blend country and blues with a fiery blue collar rock’n’roll attitude, absorbing and reconfiguring the history of American music from Chuck Berry and Tom Waits to Bruce Springsteen. The band named themselves after the controversial photo series by Robert Frank, which was first published in 1958. Like Frank’s photos, The Americans’ songs are miniature biographies, intimate and empathic portraits of individuals that leave much unsaid.
They are releasing the single as part of a four-track EP this month, with a one-off show at Sebright Arms in London on 3 May and a full-length album, I’ll Be Yours, due later in the year, also via Loose. Stream it below.
