cleopatrick have released their new single, “sanjake” today. Listen to the song and watch the lyric video now below.
Of the song, the band said, “after the insanity of 2018, we began to feel a lot of pressure to put something out that could live up to this image of us that people were building in their heads. it was a year of exponential growth and awesome highs. it was also a year spent listening to old label dudes mumble about “momentum” and “follow ups.”
somewhere along the line, we realized that the pressure to conform or to satisfy the vast majority of your audience… that’s the kind of shit that brought this genre down over the last 20 years. this preconceived notion of what we should be doing as a rock band.
it’s backwards. fuck that.
we are cleopatrick, the people’s band. we make music for kids that feel the same shit we feel. the kids we see in the front row, singing every word because a rock show is the only place they feel they belong.
so here you go. here’s a song about our best friends, sanjay and jake. “sanjake” is designed to incite vicious mosh pits and a sense of existential triumph. if you don’t get it, that’s probably because it isn’t meant for you.”
