Sueco Captures the Teenage Turmoil of My Chemical Romance on "Loser"
Sueco has released his latest single, “Loser.” Produced by John Feldmann (Machine Gun Kelly, blink-182, jxdn), dwilly (Royal & The Serpent, Trevor Daniel, bbno$), and Colin “DOC” Brittain (5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low, Papa Roach), the anthemic pop-punk track speaks to the misfits and outcasts of the world. The project comes on the heels of the viral phenomenon's Alternative Press cover shoot, superstar collaborations with Travis Barker on "SOS" and Arizona Zervas on “Sober/Hungover," and his runaway hit "Paralyzed.”
“Loser" begins somewhat lowkey, with its catchy guitar riffs that slowly build alongside Sueco’s bold vocals. The opening line, "If I had a Death Note, I would write my name on every page,” grabs listeners' attention and places it squarely on Sueco as we listen to him examine his life and its perceived by others. Sueco firmly believes they’re worthless, “addicted to the pain,” and nothing more than a loser. “I wasn’t the coolest kid growing up,” Sueco shares. “..Nobody else got me, but that song got me. There was all of this fucked up shit going on in my head too, so this was the feeling I wanted to portray.”
The accompanying video stars the bold musician in a variety of dynamic and engaging scenes, featuring an abandoned warehouse, asylum-esque rooms, and killer pyrotechnics. When the climactic chorus hits, viewers see the artist standing in the rain alone singing to himself, “I’m such a loser, swear to god, I’m the worst / I always fuck everything up, it’s a curse.” “I wanted to write a song for the 15-year-old me," says Sueco. "I tried to capture what it felt like to listen to My Chemical Romance’s ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise).’”
“Loser” is the kind of song that makes you want to sing and scream along at the top of your lungs. Set to appear on on Sueco’s forthcoming debut album, IT WAS FUN WHILE IT LASTED, arriving March 4, the single kicks off an exciting new era for Sueco. The RIAA-certified singer and producer will be joining Oliver Tree on his North American 'Cowboy Tears' tour this spring, alongside 347aidan.
