“The Right Stuff” is the new single to be released by The Americans who have just signed to one of our favourite americana labels, Loose. Hailing from Los Angeles, the quartet blend country and blues with fiery blue collar rock’n’roll, absorbing and reconfiguring the history of American music from Chuck Berry and Tom Waits to Bruce Springsteen. The band have appeared on US TV talk shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, and served as a backing band for Lucinda Williams, Nick Cave and Courtney Love. They will release “The Right Stuff” as part of a four-track EP in April, with a one-off show at Sebright Arms in London on 3 May.
