SuperGlu are a four-piece formed in Britian’s smallest town, Manningtree. But far from being beset by any small-town mentality, SuperGlu arrive with big ideas, a big sound and an anthemic pop punk banger in new single, “Welcome Home“, through Communion Records as part of their ‘Singles Club’.
The band consists of brothers Benjamin and Alex Brown (guitar), Krista Lynch (bass) and Ben Ward (drums). They can be identified neatly and concisely as: a regional champion disco-dancer, a reclaimed boat dweller, an abstract painter and a proclaimed pesto addict. This is a band of incredibly close friends/relatives, a gang – think The Ramones covering Japandroids, but with even more fun.
Having been championed by Huw Stephens, BBC Introducing and DIY Mag, the band travelled to SXSW this year and were hotly tipped as one of the ‘must see’ acts at the festival. This summer sees them take on Latitude and a number of London dates.
There is a spikiness and brat-like attitude on display, lyrics delivered with a snarl and swagger. When Brown sings “I can’t get over this feeling it’s so good” it’s not hard to see why SuperGlu are regarded as one of the UK’s best emerging live acts, with a natural gift for hooks and harmonies.
The new single follows their EP ‘Horse‘ and singles “Dreams” and “Simmer Down” (which was named as Huw Stephens’ BBC Introducing Pick Of The Week). Watch below the video for “Welcome Home“.
