The North London based Alt-Rockers have taken the opportunity of time afforded by the pandemic, and are set to release their fifth single. Having shown their versatility with the launch of an acoustic track at the end of 2021, which received high praise from several music publications and coverage on Amazing Radio, the band have hit back with arguably their heaviest track to date. Smile is a Hard Rock song that boasts an abundance of progressive riffs and rhythmic curveballs. Front-man Robert James says, “Smile is definitely the most technical track we’ve written. It was one of the first songs we wrote together as a band, but we wanted to test ourselves by creating something that was rhythmically unorthodox. Our heavier, more progressive influences really shine through with this one”.
The band’s song-writing has primarily been moulded by a desire to modernise the distinct sound of 90s Rock. Thomas Mitchener of Broadfields Studio helps bring this vision to life through the use of chorus, fuzz and other vintage instrument effects associated with iconic bands like Soundgarden, as well as contemporary artists like Nothing But Thieves. Robert says “I can’t praise Tom’s production enough. I’ve never known an engineer so able to develop an idea from raw concept to accomplished reality so efficiently. As Superbloom is made up of two core members it’s invaluable having another creative person involved who gets what we’re trying to do, and has done from the moment we walked through the door”.
Superbloom have 6 further tracks recorded and ready to release, as well as a number of demos ready for the studio. The band plan to continue building momentum over the next year with regular releases, before the launch of their debut album. They’ll also be out on the road later this year to further promote their music.
