New Jersey-rock band America Part Two is truly a band that, sonically speaking, is hard to pin down. We talk a lot about bands that blend genres to make music that is fresh and exciting, and America Part Two truly embodies what it means to do something fun that not many are doing.
Blending the sound of 90’s garage rock, 60’s psychedelic, and 2000’s emo, the band — consisting of Alex Fabio, Fred Rainville, and Sam Weingarten — describe themselves as “millennial rock.” It’s a fun way to describe their music, but once you listen for yourself, you’ll catch on pretty quick and see what they mean.
America Part Two released their debut EP, Pure, in 2017, and quickly established themselves as a band who would use their platform to journalize their experiences of being a young adult in present-day America. Social issues, growing up, political climate, and love are just a few topics that the band hit on in their music. Over the course of their career, the band have toured with the like of A Will Away and The Moms, and have continued to release music that pushing the boundaries of what America Part Two is.
This past Friday, October 23rd, the band released their singles “Split 2020” and “Freedom,” their first since signing to Revival Recordings. Today, Substream is thrilled to be teaming up with the band to premiere the accompanying music video for “Freedom,” which you can find below.
On the single and video, America Part Two explains that, “Only you have the power to free yourself. In a haze of social media, late-stage consumerism, and growing global crises, we need to think for ourselves. To stop attacking each other. To stop self-destructing. In the “Freedom” video, we wanted to capture the process of escaping the mental prison. We chose to show that you need to take real action and do whatever’s necessary to make the positive changes in your life and find your Freedom.”
