Superfood aren't just laid back. They're horizontal.
Superfood’s rules are different now. Previous single ‘Double Dutch’ suggested as such, but their second new cut ‘I Can’t See’ proves it. Their DNA remains the same - the baggy spaces and woozy charm - but between debut album ‘Don’t Say That’ and now they’ve stripped down the engine, cleaned up the parts and put it back together to make something fresh.
As a teaser for that forthcoming second album, ‘I Can’t See’ isn’t the demand for attention we’d normally receive, hand delivered with a sense of darting urgency. It’s, for want of a better word, chill. Really, really chill.
And, as the sun raises its weary head and the skies brighten, it works. Superfood have always been a band channeling their own vibe, but here they’ve found the essence of what makes them unique. Committed to nothing but themselves, it’s that quiet confidence that proves this is one rebirth not born out of desperation but the necessity to be true to themselves. Stephen Ackroyd
