Earlier this month, we got introduced to 2nd Grade, the Philadelphia group fronted by Peter Gill, with two songs, “Velodrome” and “My Bike,” that are included on the project’s upcoming 24-track debut album, Hit To Hit.
Today, we’re getting another one from it, “Dennis Hopper From Easy Rider,” which combines the kindergarten basics of the ABCs and 123s with a listing off of the cast of Easy Rider, and adds up to a goofily fun and catchy song that places vibrant fundamentals against the backdrop of the dusty open road. “ABC and 1, 2, 3/ If you want my love, you’ve gotta run with me/ DEF and 4, 5, 6/ Moving on is how I get my kicks,” Gill sings, backed by Remember Sports’ Catherine Dwyer.
Listen to it below.
