Artikal Sound System Release New Single “You’re An Asshole”
(LOS ANGELES, CA – Friday, Sept. 10, 2021) South Florida-based reggae band Artikal Sound System has released their new single “You’re An Asshole” on Silverback Music’s independent label Controlled Substance Sound Labs. The latest sound is now available everywhere. To download/stream the new single, click HERE.
“You’re an Asshole” is an upbeat anthem for anyone feeling the sting of a past relationship. The song cycles through the anger, vulnerability, insecurity, hopelessness and eventual acceptance that come with a breakup.” – Artikal Sound System
The track begins with a slow, acoustic vibe accompanied by Rex’s melodic vocals singing ”you’re an asshole, I mean it in the nicest way possible, I know you think it’s cute but you’re impossible…you send my heart and soul to the hospital,” picking up to an upbeat reggae groove for the chorus – talking about heartbreak, strength and taking the power back with a playful tone.
The band previously released their summer single “Spiritual Broadcaster” which is available on all digital platforms HERE.
Founded by Chris Montague [guitar] and Fabian Acuña [bass] in 2012, the band honed their chops backing a series of Caribbean singers. Along the way the boys picked up Christopher Cope [keys player] and Adam Kampf [drummer] before finally trying something a little sonically different with their neighbor, Logan Rex [vocalist].

Artikal Sound System is a reggae band based out of South Florida. Founded by Chris Montague (guitar) and Fabian Acuña (bass) in 2012, the band honed their chops backing a series of Caribbean singers. Along the way the boys picked up the insane and absurd keys player Christopher Cope and the heavy footed drummer Adam Kampf before finally trying something a little sonically different with their neighbor, female vocalist Logan Rex. After nearly a decade of playing together the boys sound tight and powerful, creating the perfect foundation for their jazz-influenced singer to dance around lyrically and literally. What you hear is the sound of friendship, hard work, imagination and the hope to spread their message of love and the importance of having a good time.
