Helicopter Leaves, spearheaded by Anthony Vaccaro, has made a striking debut with the release of American Standard as the opener of the full-length album Get Stuck In. This catchy indie pop-rock gem delves into the experience of living in America, touching on themes of personal growth, self-discovery, and cultivating empathy in a world filled with challenges. With its insightful lyrics and 90s indie vibes, the song carries echoes of bands like the underrated Ass Ponys while infusing a distinct modern indie sound. It’s a testament to Vaccaro’s songwriting prowess and a strong opening statement for the album.
