Minneapolis band The Von Tramps are gearing up to release their sophomore album GO on March 11 via SBAM (pre-order), and we're premiering new single "Lo Mein." It's a punky reggae song that the band says was inspired by The Police, Madonna, Jamaican dance hall music and English club records, and it might be a surface-level comparison, but I'd add that fans of '90s No Doubt should check this out too.

"We were looking to expand our sound and thought we could incorporate some really awesome electronic elements into this album; which is something we haven't done before," vocalist Jenna Enemy tells us. "[Guitarist] Chelsea [Oxborough] and I were exploring a ton of influences like The Police, Madonna, Jamaican dance hall music and English club records in addition to all of the artists and genres we already love. We created this dream-like world for the song ‘Lo Mein’ where the genres could all blend."

"The song begins to unpack how to handle success when and if you get it," Jenna continues. "It starts a bit melancholy narrating a failing love story in which one partner doesn't see themselves fitting in the other person's aspirations or dream world and has left them to dream away alone. The truth is their love is very much a part of the dream world, and without it life just wouldn't be a dream come true. The video creates a digital dream world with the live action Von Tramps exploring it. I can't spoil all the surprises, but watch for: checker print, a hound dog, a giant blimp, and of course old Lo Mein."
