Kings of Leon release video for new single “Supersoaker”

August 8, 2013


The “Use Somebody” rock superstars are back and better than ever. Grammy Award-winning group Kings of Leon have made a splash on the music scene with the release of their latest single, “Supersoaker”. The edgy anthem is the first we’ve heard from the band since 2010’s Come Around Sundown, the release of which was followed by a 50-city North American and European tour before it was announced the group would be going on hiatus. Three years later, the Nashville-based rock phenomenons have returned with the first single off the band’s sixth studio album – plus a stellar music video.

The 4-minute visual masterpiece is presented entirely through a filter worthy of Instagram status, giving the overall appearance of the video a colorful, intriguing twist. “Sentimental Girls” captions the montage, described as a “Serpents and Snakes” presentation. The upbeat rhythm of the song is a nice backing to what is clearly meant to be an aged rendition of the 50s diner scene. Taking turns to showcase placid girls sipping collectedly on milkshakes as boys lounge casually beside them and members of the band gazing composedly into the camera, “Supersoaker” is an unusual piece destined to capture your attention.

The song itself is a smooth, notable piece reminiscent of past Kings of Leon greats – making it clear the band hasn’t strayed far from it’s rocky roots. It’s a leisurely tune with an electric flow and luscious energy (in other words, any rock fan’s dream).

Check out “Supersoaker” below. And don’t forget to grab a copy of Mechanical Bull when it hits iTunes and music stores everywhere September 24th.
