I admit Californian “emo-punk” –according to Apple Music– band Super Whatevr was nowhere near my radar until it dropped this song, Carhartts & Converse, featuring the prolific pop-punk icon Mark Hoppus, this month. It turns out the band has been around since 2016 and released its second full-length album back in February. However, this tune is brand new and didn’t feature on that album.
Carhartts & Converse is like a hybrid of indie pop with punk-rock. Its optimistic lyrics about self-worth and not letting others to put you down go hand in hand with the cheerful rhythm of the song. It feels like a welcome breath of fresh air on these suffocating times. Give it a try below. It will light up your weekend.
