Punk-pop four piece SuperGlu have shared the video for their recent single Soil, which is out now alongside an exclusive vinyl only release on Flying Vinyl.
Following the band’s triumphant return last year with single Forever Endeavour, which formed a new beginning for the band and reminded us what we’ve been missing following their two-year hiatus, Soil marks a thoughtful and ambitious return.
Funded by the PRS Foundation Open Fund for Music Creators, the track was exclusively released on vinyl via Flying Vinyl on 24th April and was released digitally earlier this month through the band’s imprint Don’t Try, in conjunction with Antigen Records. Soil is a song about escapism and bravery delivered emotively and with a dose of tongue-in-cheek wit, in true unique SuperGlu style. The animated video, created by Studio Goblin, is a captivating watch and intently illustrates the meaning of the song. They say;
“We kinda let the guys at Studio Goblin create what they wanted to – it was important to us that they had the chance to interpret the song and come up with their own ideas. Everyone hears, sees and experiences the world in a different way, so why not celebrate that.”
SuperGlu released their debut EP Horse in 2016 and Communion released single Welcome Home/Rounder in 2017 and have since built an avid following for their vigorous punk-pop sound, with support from Huw Stephens and Annie Mac at BBC Radio 1, Steve Lamacq at BBC 6Music, John Kennedy at Radio X and BBC Introducing.
Their reputation as one of the UK’s best live acts has built them an impressive resume, which includes numerous shows at SXSW, support slots with Twin Atlantic and The Stranglers and a headline show on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds festival. The band performed a full UK tour in Autumn 2019 and their live show is one not to be missed.
