Review: The All-American Rejects compelling on new film ‘Sweat’ (Includes first-hand account)

The acclaimed rock band is back after a five-year hiatus. The All-American Rejects released their two-song EP Sweat, via the record label, Interscope Records, coupled with its 11-minute short music video. In addition to the title track single, the other song featured on the EP is “Close Your Eyes.”

“Sweat” was a neat summer pop-rock anthem, with hypnotic hooks and melodies. British director Jamie Thraves did a solid job on the film’s direction.

The Verdict

Overall, their “Sweat” film is visually-striking and a true work of art. The All-American Rejects have outdone themselves musically and artistically. They are not afraid to showcase their vulnerability as recording artists, and it is safe to say that their vulnerability is their pop-rock listening audience’s reward. They also manage to reinvest themselves as musicians, and they keep their music fresh and relevant. Their “Sweat” film garners an A rating.

“Sweat” is available on iTunes and on Spotify.
