Stone Cold Fox – “American”
As we sit here on this 5th of July, recovering from sunburns, hangovers and stomach aches, most of us are feeling pretty American. But do we truly know what that means? We watched red, white and blue fireworks light up the night sky as loudspeakers proudly filled our ears with our Nation’s anthem, and today we will return to work, diligently trying to define who we are and who we’re going to be.
NYC band Stone Cold Fox’s song “American” is infectous and poetic indie-pop at its best. The song, and actually entire The Young EP, centers itself around a coming of age in America theme. On this song, the group sings, “They won’t tell me what I am to be an American. I’m here, but I’m loosing my cool. No, I won’t wait for you.” Change can be just as exciting and empowering as it is scary. It’s clear this track focuses on the former.
