“We’re superclean, bop til we drop”
‘Superclean’ is the infectious new track and music video from Scott Lavene taken from his forthcoming album ‘Broke’ which is set for release on 7th June on CD, LP and digital. The music video is really fun with a retro vibe and is set on the moon. Lyrics celebrate the everyday and have a playful feel.
“Once more round the sun dear boy,
we’re not ready to stop
A zillion miles an hour
with a quick stop at the shop
Half-price tickets to heaven,
we found them in the bin.
Wearing double denim,
hoping that we’ll get in.”
Lavene grew up in the eighties and his first musical memory includes ‘Runaway Boys’ by Stray Cats when he was a little boy before being inspired by The Clash on the Levis ads and icons such as Otis Reading, the Beatles, the Stones and a lot of the classics which in turn have influenced his own eclectic musical style. Despite these influences Lavene admits, “I’m just a fella from Essex and when I started writing stories and songs about my own life and what I’d seen it all clicked.”
Lavene comments on his new release ‘Superclean’, “It’s a pop bop, a strut. I wanted to write a song that was less literal than others I write. I wrote it one morning during the recording of the album, in the kitchen of the producer who was letting me stay at his house. It’s about feeling good, a new chapter, eternal optimism, escape.”
To celebrate the release of his new album Scott Lavene is heading out on tour with his newly formed backing band The Pub Garden.
