WICKED BEARS Roll the Dice with “Lucky”

The Salt Lake City-based pop punk trio, WICKED BEARS, brings all the early 2000’s Warped Tour nostalgia flooding back with their latest single “Lucky”. Accompanied by a new monochrome music video, it bursts at the seams with a hopeless optimism fueled by bombastic power chords and yowling vocals.

If you take the emotional push of post-Enema of State Blink-182 and combine it with bouts of Ska guitar, you’d likely end up somewhere near this song’s general feel. Meanwhile, the music video is one big party with band playing the song live in a local venue with tons of friends (and even a toy skeleton) dancing enthusiastically in the audience.

The band says, “If you’ve ever dedicated $20 to a claw machine and gone home empty-handed, this song is for you. If you’ve ever felt like, no matter what road you take, there’s gonna be a dead end at the end of it, this song is for you. If you’ve ever been arrested while robbing a bank, this song is for you. Lucky is for the unluckiest of us, who are tired of explaining our despondency to those more lucky. Now you don’t have to explain! You can just send them this song. Do you feel lucky? If not, this song is for you.”

“Lucky” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube. “Lucky” can be found on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify and YouTube.
