The band comment on the new single:
“This is a funny one really as we’d just released a second album and we were still very much in the writing phase, so just decided to carry on writing. ‘NRG’ was the first song we put together out of all the writing we did post-album. We wanted to carry on with the same sound we honed in on for album two for sure, as we felt like we all understood the process in writing and recording within that style. You could say it was all really natural for us and almost second nature to fire out songs within that genre and style, as we’d surrounded ourselves with it so much over the last year.
“We also wanted to end this year on a bang with a new single release, following up on making our debut touring outside of the UK. ‘NRG’ definitely was on the right track to fit within that narrative. The song itself follows up lyrical themes of our follow: noise album.
Such as being in your mid 20’s in a modern world filled with pressures of what direction to take your life in, as well as being so overwhelmed that you feel like you have no energy to pursue what you actually want to achieve. Writing about these subjects always helps lift the weight off a bit for me, almost removing them from my brain and storing them in the song to help clear my head. I say that without the fear of sounding too cheesy there!”
Discussing the music video, they add:
“The music video is always a strange topic for us three, as we don’t categorise ourselves into being a visually pleasing or aesthetically led band at all. So with music videos we always want to make something where we don’t stray too far from our personalities, try and make it as true as possible.
For this video that was no different, we love performance videos so wanted to incorporate that and also want it to look visibly British in terms of background etc, as inspiration from some of our favourite bands. Combine that with a quite simple video to accompany the vision of Luke, who directed the video, and there we have it. It was a laugh to shoot it and to spend the day together is always a bonus.
Superlove are a young and exciting new noise-pop band from Bristol. Their infectious pop hooks, brain-melting riffs, strong harmonies and off-kilter songwriting have earned them incredible reviews and a fast and loyal fanbase since they formed in 2018.
Inspired by scene icons Turnstile, who effortlessly rock up onstage in jeans and a t-shirt each night, letting the music speak for itself, it’s an era that comes with no gimmicks. Growing up with the carefree humour of bands like blink-182, Superlove are looking to bring a simple, fun-first spirit back to rock music.
Superlove have been selling out hometown shows and toured up and down the UK and EU supporting the likes of Hot Milk, Dream State, Stand Atlantic, ROAM and Vukovi, and played many festivals including The Great Escape, Handmade, Burn It Down and Neverworld, on the strength of just their first few singles.
The trio’s captivating sound has seen support from BBC Radio 1‘s Jack Saunders, Daniel P. Carter, Alyx Holcombe and Nels Hylton, Kerrang! Radio‘s Alex Baker, Rock Sound and more, as well as strong playlist support from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer.
Now armed with their new single ‘NRG’, Superlove show no signs of slowing and are ready to continue their rise.
