Avenue Beat has been taking over the pop-country scene, introducing a new take on the genre that hasn’t been seen before.

The band has stayed connected with fans during the pandemic by uploading snippets of their songs, including unreleased single, “F*ck 2020.” The TikTok garnered over 4 million views in one day, before the platform removed the video. The band posted the video on their Instagram account, which has amassed 3 million views to date.

♬ lowkey fk 2020 avenue beat – avenuebeat

With clever lyrics and a chill backbeat, Avenue Beat sprinkles humor with the harsh realities of living during a national pandemic.

“My cat died // And a global pandemic took over my life // Low key fuck 2020 // Still sad, still ain’t got no money”

In response to the overwhelming feedback, the band has decided to release the full song early for fans to enjoy during quarantine.

Avenue Beat may look like your average 20-somethings, but underneath the baggy clothes and wicked side-eye, the Quincy, Illinois-born trio is a pack of theater nerd songwriter/programmers sent to distill their angst on their generation with a wink and a nudge. The genzennial collective of Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sam Backoff are strong, smart, fun – in love with life, each other and getting on with it. Beckoning listeners with glistening melody and lyrical truths, Avenue Beat’s 2019 self-titled EP  (The Valory Music Co./Tape Room Records) was co-produced by lead singer Savana, David Garcia and Ashley Gorley.

The trio’s debut “Ruin That For Me,” has amassed over 11 million global streams to date as it rises at Country radio, while “thank you anxiety” serves as a pressure valve from the genre-fluid creators at a time when the world couldn’t feel more out of control.  As the world has quickly shifted, Avenue Beat anchored together at home and reconstructed six songs featured on the quarantine covers, out now.
