fun.'s Jack Antonoff releases new Bleachers song, 'I Wanna Get Better'
Supergroups in music are nothing new. Some work better than others but it's generally fun to see members of your favorite bands collaborate in an all-star-like setting. One such group that isn't nearly discussed enough as such is fun.; while Nate Ruess is clearly the frontman of the band and is fairly well known from his time with The Format, Jack Antonoff and Andrew Dost don't get enough credit for being in Steel Train and Anathallo. It's hard to forget how talented each member is on his own, so it's great when they get the chance to stretch their legs.
Jack Antonoff released a new song, "I Wanna Get Better," under this side project, and it's fantastic. It's definitely reminiscent of Steel Train and shows that Antonoff has retained his unique style and voice even after years of playing with fun. If we can't have more fun. for the time being, I'm glad we can get work from the individual members to hold us over.
Check out the Bleachers site for tour dates and to purchase the song on iTunes.
