INTRIGUERS MAKING WAVES: AVENUE BEAT
7/31/20

By Holly Gleason

4.5m views in 12 hours can’t be wrong. Even when TikTok took it down, Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sama Backoff surreptitiously reposted the heavenly middle digit that is “F 2020,” and the views just kept on coming.

A whopping 7m streams ensued in 40 hours; even the postus interruptus couldn’t stop the theater-nerd songwriter/programmers from Quincy, Ill., from striking a nerve in the worst year any of us can remember.

With Techwire “calling it for Song of the Year now,” and Vice coming to the party, look for the genre-fluid trio to explode globally with their deadpan vixen video set in front of protest footage of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, President Trump, Kobe and Gianna Bryant, COVID-19, murder hornets and their own extended middle fingers.
