Super Whatevr – Never Nothing

Super Whatevr – Never Nothing

January 24, 2018 |

Home of Hopeless Records, Super Whatevr release an eyebrow raising album which leans outside my expectations of this decorated record label. Never Nothing starts off with a repetitive guitar sequence while building layers as it progresses through until Bloomfield lets off more steam in what can be described as a track you’d expect from Arctic Monkeys with a very accent driven vocal pattern with a tinny guitar and gritty bass boasting the same riff. It’s hard to explain that by the third track they introduce a slow emotional type track in Kathrine With A K before reverting back to upbeat Indie/Pop cultured vibes in Why Do I Wonder Why.

 

For You is a key track of the album and their official released single which so far has proven the most interesting while Cops On Motorcycles leads a dreary, slow paced whiney feel that you’d expect to hear in a TV show if it was based in a mental institute. The same dark Indie-esque filter seems to be used throughout the album as the tone continues during Misquote, When Does The World End? and Television. Reaching the penultimate track, it starts off with a nice gritty guitar tone and a ringing of feedback underlaying as I expect an explosion into the song, it only gets later introduced when the lyrical speaking/speaking section has come to a finish. Speaking of finishes, Loser quietly steps up with a very sad sounding lyrical background before a crushing sound of noise then closes the album in what could have done more with during the album.
