Back in May (2014) Superfood set out on a mammoth of a UK tour supporting Wolf Alice. Needless to say, we were excited for that tour. We were excited to hear Superfood’s unique and funk sounding tunes live and of course they delivered a very polished set but since then we have been even more excited about their debut album ‘Don’t Say That’ which comes out November 3rd. I have had the pleasure of listening to the band’s forth coming release and here is what I think.
Opening with ‘Lily For Your Pad To Rest On’ you get exactly what I mean when I describe the band as funk. A quirky and bouncy song starts off the 13 track LP that includes ‘TV’ and ‘Melting’ from ‘MAM’ EP and singles ‘Mood Bomb’ and ‘Right On Satellite’.
In recent years it has been very clear that bands in the indie scene have been battling it out to sound individual and to get out of the indie niche. Superfood have done exactly that. There is nothing in the album that is generic. A new wave in the scene is just round the corner and Superfood are leading it. With feel good songs such as ‘You Can Believe’ and more edgy rock tracks that are crying for a mosh pit like ‘Superfood’ the album is a perfect recipe for success.
‘Don’t Say That’ closes with three sing-a-long anthems that could shake any tiny club or any arena sized venue. I suspect it will be the latter. There are big things coming for Superfood so when this album comes out in November, do not sleep on it! It’s one of the best albums to be released this year.
You can catch them on tour this October/November. See dates here.
