Brooklyn, NY’s Superbloom have just released ‘Live at Studio G’- a 3 song live EP made up of tracks off their upcoming studio LP ‘Pollen’ out June 1st.
The band says, “Recording at Studio G was a dream. We’re huge fans of live studio recordings like Audiotree, KEXP and Live at Studio 4 and we sort of threw ourselves at the idea with our own resources. The studio itself is unreal and Jack is a longtime friend of the band. We spent the day hanging out, messing with tones, playing through the songs and eating pizza. Can’t imagine a better day for a band.”
“The quartet’s sound is steeped in ’90s nostalgia, with heavily layered guitars and melodic hooks. There are hints of Nirvana throughout Superbloom’s upcoming album, but the lush chords on “Pollen” give off a distinct early Smashing Pumpkins vibe. Fans of modern acts like Silversun Pickups and Nothing should also take note.”- Consequence
“Brooklyn’s Superbloom channel the catchy, grungy guitar rock of bands like Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr through a slightly shoegazy lens,…if you’ve got an Alternative Nation-shaped void to fill, you should check this out.”- Brooklynvegan
“Superbloom swan dive into our ’90s alt-rock fetish with ‘Pollen’”- Vanyaland
“Your next grunge revival obsession.”- The Noise
“…reminiscent of a bygone era when rock dominated the airways. Superbloom are most definitely a guitar band and they play their instruments loud and with the urgency of a ticking time bomb, it’s aggressive and in-your-face, but also catchy as hell.”- The Alternative
“The group’s sonic approach is rooted in the fuzzy guitar atmospherics of bands like Hum and Amusement Parks on Fire. The hooks are plentiful, the arrangements lean and mean, and there’s a bouncy rhythmic quality to much of their work so far.”- No Echo
Superbloom is Brooklyn’s latest entry into the alternative rock scene. Their debut album, ‘Pollen’ is a 12-track love-letter to heavy alternative music that spans infectiously bouncy hard rock, instantly nostalgic acoustic songs, sing-along choruses and undeniable hooks.
The album was mastered by Will Yip (Quicksand, Mannequin Pussy, Code Orange), mixed by Joe Reinhart (Remo Drive, Joyce Manor, Hop Along) and produced by Superbloom.
While the album’s feedback-laced instrumentation is hard-hitting at every turn, the band’s sonic signature is embedded in the vocal performance that fills each track with complex layering, earworm melodies and lush harmonies that deliver discoveries of nuanced detail with each listen.
‘Pollen’ releases on all streaming services on June 1st, and is available for digital and vinyl pre-orders.
