Bristol’s Superlove are set to release their new, DIY-produced EP, …but for the moment, out June 18, 2021 via Rude Records. Superlove explore their digital creativity and expand their sound to blend their alternative roots with synth and other pop elements.
The EP opens with “8:00am,” a song with ethereal synth, fuzzy vocal blends and is eventually backed by electronic drums that directs the song towards a dreamy synth pop blend. The opener is stark in contrast to the album closer “Untouchable (Remix),” which is a fantastical, hyper pop-leaning synth remix of the band’s 2020 song and is a perfect example of the depth of digital experimentation happening within this album.
Between these two synth-saturated tracks are sounds that are probably a bit closer to what fans were expecting from this EP. The album’s first single, “btw! i adore you,” contains heavy riffage paired with brighter elements of hyper-pop that creates a bouncy and energetic hyper-metal blend. “The People You’ll Love” is chock-full of catchy hooks and anthemic choruses and “NOT ME! NOT YOU!” is hard and heavy as hell, but there are still elements of synth peppered in to keep the genre lines blurred.
From heavy breakdowns to hyper-pop synth, Superlove dive deep into experimenting with digital elements to push boundaries and explore unlikely genre fusions with their new album, …but for the moment, streaming everywhere June 18.
