Oftentimes in the music world, thing can move slowly for bands. Other times, the pace of the industry moves so quickly it’s hard to keep up. Either way, when you’re good, you’re good, and eventually someone takes notice. So whether it takes you a decade to get a record deal, or you’re Rocky Loves Emily and you drop your label debut EP less than two years after forming, hard work pays off. The pop rocking, punk infused, country lace band from Detroit, Michigan released their debut EP on Tooth and Nail Records just last week. The insanely catchy American Dream is available exclusively on iTunes and in Hot Topic stores nationwide and we here at Sovereign Sound highly recommend that you snag yourself a copy ASAP.
In the meantime, check out this behind-the-scenes making of the music video for their first single “Clueless”. The finished version should be up online any day now, but you can satisfy your Rocky Loves Emily craving a bit by watching this on repeat until then.
