Here is ‘Let it Roll’, the new video from the dynamic Speedbuggy USA. Front man Timbo describes Speedbuggy USA’s music: “It’s honest heartfelt music. We write songs about hard jobs, rough life, bad breaks, drinking, and loving. Real stories about real people that seem to be lacking in songs these days. On stage, Speedbuggy USA delivers an explosion of raw energy with true passion and plenty of grit. We give nothing less than our all and shake the stage like an earthquake.” ‘Let it Roll’ is the perfect example of their dynamic, energetic approach to songwriting and performing. It’s an exciting blend of influences, from the rock ‘n’ roll of Little Richard and Elvis, to swampy punk and American roots. It’s all there – pulsing, pounding and grooving, oozing confidence and performing without limitations. Directed by Joe Cardamone, the artfully-shot video, which was filmed below Johnny’s Bar in Los Angeles, showcases the band playing live, with the angles and colours reinforcing the song’s rhythm and throwback vibe.
‘Let it Roll’ is taken from the brand new album ‘Sonic West’, a confident swagger through various musical genres. With support from Seth Von Paulus on song arrangements and production, the band create a sound designed to knock you off your feet. Mike McNamara says of this song: “This was a fun one that came together almost immediately. I had this kinda B-52’s idea that I came into practice with and Timbo just took it and turned it into this whole other Cramps like thing. We wrote the chorus on the spot and had one of those moments where we looked at each other and knew we had a live one on our hands.” Lead guitarist Steve Kidwiler adds: “I really liked Seth’s lead, so I just learned it and we ran it along side his and it turned out pretty cool!”
The band successfully takes older sounds and transforms them into something adventurous and new. And they look like they’re having a great time doing it. Enjoy.
