Sam The Astronaut, aka Garrison Johnson and TJ Gibson, radiate their hustler pride in new single “Monster Squad (Love So Crazy).” It’s a foot-stomping, mood booster where the duo chant their love for making music while also balancing other areas of their lives. The playful riffs collide and burst with each other while also emitting an 80s flair. Enjoy:

“‘Monster Squad (Love so Crazy)’ is a feel-good summer anthem, inspired by 1987’s The Monster Squad. TJ made the beat after watching the movie, with a focus on the final line where the army guys ask the kids ‘who are you?’ and they respond with ‘we’re the Monster Squad,’” detailed the duo. They further added, “‘Monster Squad (Love so Crazy)’ revels in the confidence of being a part of something deeply meaningful. In our case, it’s about being in a band we believe in, and having a hell of a great time while simultaneously nurturing relationships and working 9 to 5 jobs.”

The track is from the duo’s upcoming album Midnight Carlight, which will be out on August 28th.
