“It’s one big celebration of music,” said the band’s Jacob Rice. “Each song is completely different,” he grins. “We love pop, we love indie, we love heavy music. We adore every genre we’ve covered. We wouldn’t be able to do it with confidence if we weren’t really into it.”
Colours is every part an album made by people who grew up in a world of MP3 players, illegal downloads and trading songs with friends in the playground via infrared. Eclectic but never claustrophobic, it sees Superlove doing whatever they want, regardless of genre and combining those lyrical emotions with the notion of the colours that go with them.
Lyrically, Superlove have really opened themselves up on this record. Their debut covers social media burnout, Gen Z confusion, mental health and fractured relationships.
“When we started, we’d just turned twenty and wanted to have fun. Because of how special the band felt though, we knew we needed to talk about things that meant something on this album. We wanted to say something important, while trying to be as positive as possible.”
“We also want to push the boundaries of what a band can be. Just because you’re a rock group, it doesn’t mean every track has to have a riff with distorted guitars. You can do absolutely anything you want.”
