Brooklyn's Proper. have signed to Father/Daughter, who will co-release the band's new music with Big Scary Monsters, and their first single for the label is "Red, White, & Blue," which was produced by Bartees Strange. It's an incisive attack on America, and it was musically inspired by At the Drive In and Paramore's "Misery Business," which you can definitely hear coming through, but Proper. make those influences their own. Vocalist/guitarist Erik Garlington says:

A lot of millennials in my life share the sentiment that being American feels like being in an abusive relationship that you can't find the courage to leave. Uncle Sam is this charming older man that you find yourself drawn too and only realize way too late into the game what you're really dealing with. I knew I wanted to focus on looking at what makes this country what it is, and how hopeless I feel to stop it. The song started as me just wanting to write something you'd hear if At The Drive-In collaborated with early Paramore. I had the 5/4 riff that ended up being the bridge, that 'Misery Business'-esque chorus chord progression.

Listen to the new song below.
