The American Scene- “4th and Broadway”

americanhaze

After unveiling one of the best tracks of the summer last week, The American Scene have just debuted the second single from their upcoming album, Haze (out September 9 via Pure Noise Records). “4th and Broadway” follows in a similarly upbeat indie rock vein as the first single, “Royal Blue,” but it takes the upbeat, dancy vibe a step further. This is infectious, indie rock ear candy at its finest, and it calls to mind the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Tokyo Police Club, and Two Door Cinema Club (And I swear I didn’t realize until I finished typing that sentence that all three of those bands end with the word “club”).

I’m excited to hear “Haze” in its entirety. From what we’ve heard so far, it is shaping up to be an excellent album, and also quite different in sound than its predecessor, Safe For Now. I have a feeling that this stylistic shift will win the band many accolades and a much broader fan base.
