SUPERLOVE take on the A-Z challenge!

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the upcoming talent across the world! Up next, we have Brit alt-rock newcomers SUPERLOVE, who are gearing up for a huge tour of the UK with DREAM STATE!

A song that made you want to make music?

The first song that ever had a true impact on me was Eyeless by slipknot!

Best rider you’ve had?

Our riders so far have been just 2 billion cans of Stella, we keep asking for a charli xcx cardboard cutout but some people just can’t let you live the dream can they

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in the band?

During our 3rd show ever I had underwear thrown at me with quotes from Limmy’s Show written on them…i still can’t tell if I’m scarred or not

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

hands down it’s gotta be “give me that sweet vitty D” blood, sweat and tears went into that lyric and I think it really resonates with everyone

Easiest song you wrote?

Big Lies Boy just sort of happened? I knew I wanted a riff in drop A that used a whammy pedal and the choruses and verses just came so naturally that we felt like not much needed changing!

Favourite song in your set?

We’ve got an unreleased song called ‘I Love It’ that we’ve been playing different variations of since our first show, that’s become a favourite for sure!

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Cardi B hands down

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Usually I’d say organisation but because there’s just 3 of us it’s so easy to get something done!

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Jacob has a hole in the top of his ear and apparently he’s part of the 1% of people that have it

Jokes you have in the band?

we always tell each other that we’ve got another person ready to replace them if someone even coughs nowadays it’s like ‘right that’s it we’re getting *so & so* in’

Key to writing a song?

For us its a hooky main riff and a chorus that even your tone deaf nan could sing, we also always seem to put a four to the floor beat in every song we just literally can’t stop ourselves, and neither can you!

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

So far it’s only been London! we’ve each travelled to all sorts in previous bands though.

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

I think either LTA or Shikari purely because this band started after watching them both play in cardiff!

New band you’d recommend?

God Complex, heaviest band in the world

Opening for this band would be ideal?

I Cried Wolf

Place you’d most like to tour?

America and Japan for sure! but also part of us wants to play a caravan club in Devon somewhere

Quote you’d like to pass on to our readers?

People will tell you you’re crap and people will tell you you’re amazing, listen to none of it!

Reason for the title of your recent/forthcoming release?

‘Book A Holiday’ is sort of an observation (much like all our songs) on typical lads that look forward to their week away in Magaluf

See us live at?

We head out on tour with Dream State from March 23-27th We’re also playing Handmade fest and the great escape festival!

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

I think it entirely depends on how you view success and where your priorities lie. Personally I think it’s better nowadays because it’s much easier to reach people online etc, obviously money was a lot better back then but who really cares about that

Unusual merchandise?

Mesh t shirt with nothing but jacobs face on it

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?

We usually change things around quite a lot live, me and Alex especially try and throw eachother off a lot!

What do your fans mean to you?

If people didn’t like our music we’d all be crying in a bath together so they mean the absolute world to us!

X-rays or any treatments needed for band related injuries?

Not yet! I’m hoping one day one us gets to play a set in a wheelchair and gets lifted upside down like Joey Jordison during a solo

You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

Alex 100% always needs ‘something from the shop’

Zoo animal that best describes the personality of your band?

You know when you walk through the butterfly enclosure and one lands on your shoulder, that’s us.
