"It literally just happened"

If you haven't heard it yet, Super Whatevr recently collaborated with blink-182's Mark Hoppus on 'Carhartts & Converse', an addictive foot-stomping slice of alt-pop joy. 

It sounds like this:

In our recent Video Call with Skyler McKee, he revealed how the duo set about making the track. It turns out it was as simple as clicking send on a Tweet:

"I tweeted in response to one of his tweets. I was just like ‘We should make a song’ and he was like ‘OK, hit my DMs’. Then the next thing I know I’m driving to get...I thought we were getting coffee but we got matcha. Then we drove to his little home studio and made a cool thing. It literally just happened.

"We were going to have two days but we ended up having one because his wife planned something for his birthday. So we had one day and I was like ‘I need the song to be done’. So I brought half the chorus and was just hellbent on finishing in that day. A lot of them were rough takes but we made it work."

And it's not the only collab he has on the horizon...

"I'm talking to Bishop Briggs. I’m talking to some of the guys in The Neighbourhood. AWOLNATION is on the table. So yeah, some real crazy out of this world conversations with some artists. It’s super cool."

Ace ace ace. Have a watch of the full interview below:

Super Whatver released their latest album 'don't you wanna be glad?' at the beginning of the year through Hopeless Records.
