Colorado-based pop-rockers Single File once relied on food and water donations from fans just to survive on the road. But thanks to the April 7 release of their major-label debut on Reprise, one that finds a sweet spot between the bratty emo of Say Anything and the refined pop of Fountains of Wayne, those days appear destined to become distant memories, and fast.
Get a sneak peek of the trio’s forthcoming record, Common Struggles, right here by streaming album track “Girlfriends” and its shout-along-worthy chorus (“So what if I’m a burnout, baby / You don’t got to celebrate it”). Then tell us what you think in the comments section below.
