On “Loser,” a throbbing guitar riff is matched with bright, breezy vocals, creating a confident yet defeatist punk anthem.
The video features the members of THICK struggling to play baseball. Bats fly from hitters’ hands, easy pitches go unhit and a baseball or two finds itself striking players square in the eye. Despite all this, THICK win their game and celebrate by shotgunning Miller High Lifes.
THICK shared their vision for the song in a press release.
“This song is an anthem for everyone who feels outshined and overlooked by the people around them,” THICK say. “Ultimately, it’s about using that chip on your shoulder to do better and realizing that you’re never going to be a winner if you keep using other people as your measuring stick.”
This fall, THICK will hit the road for their North American tour alongside Skating Polly. Make sure to grab tickets here.
