Guerilla Toss – “Famously Alive”

Guerilla Toss – “Famously Alive”

Guerilla Toss previewed their upcoming Sub Pop debut Famously Alive last month with lead single “Cannibal Capital,” which we named one of the five best songs of the week when it came out. Today, they’re following that up with another new single, the record’s maximalist, explosively anthemic title track.

Frontwoman Kassie Carlson says that the song is about “living with purpose and excitement whether you’re famous or not, accepting your strangeness and thriving even if your successes look different than other people’s.” Her bandmate Peter Negroponte adds, “To me, ‘Famously Alive’ means flipping the notion of dying famously to living famously. I also like to think of it as a way to describe living through something traumatic and coming out of it a stronger, wiser person.”
