Kings Of Leon – “Supersoaker”

When Kings Of Leon first made their way onto radars, blogs, Soulseek, and the pages of NME, they were often dubbed the “Southern Strokes.” Over time, it’s a tag the Followill brothers’ band more or less shed, the same way Coldplay eventually shed those “poor man’s Travis” comparisons. But Kings Of Leon’s new single, “Supersoaker” — the first from their sixth album, Mechanical Bull — actually feels a bit like the Strokes, or as I like to call them, the “American Phoenix.” Spin it.

Mechanical Bull is out 9/24 via RCA.
