Denver-based rock trio Single File are set to release Common Struggles, their full length debut, on April 7th. â€œThe title Common Struggles says it all â€“ Iâ€™m not pretending that any of what Iâ€™ve dealt with is new, itâ€™s just the human condition,â€ says lead vocalist/guitarist/bassist Sloan Anderson, explaining the choice of title for Single Fileâ€™s album, which was produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, The All-American Rejects, Less Than Jake).
The pairing between super-producer and the three bandmates from Denver resulted in an exuberant, adrenaline-fueled album that simultaneously celebrates and subverts classic pop songwriting, with a tip of the hat to musical forebears such as Tom Petty, Weezer and the Beatles. The aforementioned combo is no more apparent than on â€œMannequin Loveseat,â€ the first track released from Common Struggles. Not only does the song showcase their quirky pop sensibility but the video encapsulates it to a tee.
