Cheekface Share New Single ‘Popular 2’

    Cheekface have dropped a new song called ‘Popular 2’. It’s the Los Angeles band’s second single of 2023, following January’s ‘The Fringe’. Check out a lyric video for it below.

    “Even though I’m worried about the surveillance state that the government has set up, and many of us rightly think it’s a tool of state oppression, we still spy on our own friends and neighbors and total strangers through our own means that we’ve set up ourselves,” singer/guitarist Greg Katz said of the track in a statement. “And just like the government, we develop our own paranoiac theories about what those people are doing, but we’re really maybe just reflecting our own loneliness. Me and [bassist] Mandy Tannen wrote this little power pop tune about that little contradiction. Also, the guitar line in the verse is a little inspired by the verse guitar part in Van Halen’s ‘Panama.’ RIP Eddie.”
