Super Water Sympathy Sign With New Record Label
Louisiana indie rock band Super Water Sympathy have just signed with In Music We Trust Records and have timed this prior to releasing the band’s album ‘Hydrogen Child’ on 23rd April 2013.
“I’m a sucker for a strong pop record,” says In Music We Trust founder Alex Steininger. “From track one until the final note, the record is full of hooks, great vocal harmonies, and just plain old memorable songs. I am quite pleased to be working with Super Water Sympathy, to say the least. I can’t wait to get this record out in the world.” . These new songs confirm the undeniable talents of this five-piece band who have been packing Southeast venues for the past few years.
In the summer of 2012, before heading out to perform on the highly-coveted Vans’ Warped Tour, the band flew to London to record with producer Cam Blackwood (Florence + The Machine, Coldplay, Morrissey), and emerged with ‘Hydrogen Child’.
The band are very busy at the moment, touring the southern US states and creating a lot of interest – playing lots of small gigs but packing them out. If you have never heard them before they play very cool up tempo indie music. Less cool I guess when in a recent interview band member Ansley admitted that the two CD’s being played in the band’s transport at the moment was the Tron movie soundtrack and Weezer.
To give you a feel for their music see the following two videos:
‘Uh Oh!’ Released in October 2012 is a great little number but has got to be one of the maddest videos that I have seen for a while! Watch it carefully and you will see that this was shot in a single take. ‘Nice!’ You will want to watch and listen to this track again and again. This song will be available on iTunes and Amazon in February.
Also worth taking a look at is the cool track ‘Slade Was Made’. I love this track and hope that you will too. Strong lyrics and vocals that are the signature of Super Water Sympathy.
Formed in 2010 and consisting of brothers Billy and Clyde Hargrove (bass and guitar, respectively), Ryan Robinson (drums), Jason Mills (keys), and Ansley Hughes (vocals), the group clicked from the start, sharing a similar vision for the band’s sound. By fostering and combining their individual strengths, they’ve produced an electrifying and unforgettable musical experience.
Super Water Sympathy’s debut album, ‘Vesper Belle’ , was released in 2011 and two tours of the United States followed. The band also lent their writing and production skills to B.O.B’s ‘Strange Clouds’ with the track ‘Chandelier’, and ‘Vesper Belle‘s’ songs were heavily featured on the MTV series “Caged.”
