Birmingham quintent Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam‘s latest single “All The Way Over The Edge (Bros Don’t Talk About Anything)” from upcoming LP Blackout Cowboy is not only well worth the time it takes to type in the song title to listen to it, but the kind of driving, overly-caffeinated rock jam that makes me want to jump off the couch and dance around while listening at maximum volume.
(Another song that makes me feel similarly? The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside.”)
Described by Stereogum as a “psyched-out spin on the neurotic power pop of early Weezer and the sprawling guitar rock of Titus Andronicus,” “All The Way Over The Edge (Bros Don’t Talk About Anything)” is more than a song to pump your first to; it’s a challenge to sit down, listen up, and talk about mental health.
“I think the male condition stops us from sharing emotions,” says lead singer and guitarist Pete Dixon. “We tend to either make light of things, or brush it off completely. Typically, men don’t talk about our feelings until it’s too late.”
Famously prolific (over 100 songs were written in the last few years, released on Bandcamp, and distilled into eight songs to be featured on Blackout Cowboy), Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam combines the youth and energy of rock and roll with heavy introspection and the dark humor the band is known for.
