"Superet is an American Rock band that formed in Los Angeles on Valentine's Day of 2016. Tattooed across the arm of singer/guitarist Matt Blitzer, the date marks both the project's genesis and the manifestation of the musical partnership between five close friends," reads a press release I recently received from BB Gun Press. Superet consists of Blitzer, along with keyboard player Alex Fischel, drummer Sam KS, bassist Patrick Kelly, and guitar/keyboard/percussion player Isaac Tamburino, who have previously "collaborated in various iterations over the preceding years;" further detailing that Superet is "the culmination of their long-standing creative kinship." While Superet recently premiered their first single, "Pay It Later," on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show, the majority of their social media sites cryptically read either "Superet is coming..." or "SUPERET IS A BAND." Frontman Matt Blitzer and his fellow bandmates harness a rather unique, joyously frantic Dance-influenced blend of Pop-Punk and Garage Rock on "Pay It Later" and have already been compared to the likes of David Bowie, Roxy Music, LCD Soundsystem, Brian Eno, The Bravery, and early 2000's Dance-Punks The Faint.
"Snatched from the facade of a decrepit Los Angeles church, the Latin word "superet" translates to "may it overflow," an apt description of the reclusive band's modus operandi [M.O.] After quietly stockpiling eccentric, hook-laden Rock gems behind closed doors, the group unveiled its blistering debut single "Pay It Later" in May of 2017. Superet is coming..." continues BB Gun's press release. Last week, Superet wrapped up a string of East Coast and Midwest dates supporting AFI frontman and all of the non-Gwen Stefani members of No Doubt as DREAMCAR behind their maiden voyage in support of their recent self-titled PLOF, LLC/Columbia Records debut. While their is currently no type of formal announcement to be made concerning a Superet full-length on Rob The Rich Recordings—just "Pay It Later," at the moment—I'm assured it's something to look forward to and the staff at BB Gun Press are "all really excited about what's to come..." Later this month, Superet will be heading back out on the road for six dates in support of DREAMCAR (*) once more, Gang of Youths (&) and Dream Machines with Thumpasaurus ($):
