EP Review: People We Forget This Is Love - Super Best Friends Club

EP: People We Forget This Is Love
Genre: Physcedelic-pop
Best Track: Evolution
Rating: 8/10

           They always say 'never judge a book by its cover', and in this case, it couldn't be better advice. When Super Best Friends Club's new EP first arrived in my inbox, I expected twee banjos and cutesy airy-fairy vocals, but was in fact pleasantly suprised.

          Opening with Evolution, an exploration into tribal jungle madness,  the trippy physchedelic-pop of the collective immediately draws you in with a jazzy saxophone hook and  infectious drum beat. With frantic electrics and jeering, it's safe to say that Evolution is a track like none other, at times seeming to delve into the depths of a vast abyss of noise, whilst still maintaining its danceable, captivating pulse.

          Sunshine, Super Megatron is more laid-back - a refreshing approach to electro-pop with a poetic rhythm and almost trance-enducing melody; whilst Universe, Universe lets loose with a saxophone part dancing around the crashing piano chords.

         The EP closes with People We Forget This Is Love, a track  reminiscent of of Montreal in how it moves from a gentle melody and guitar to a more intense chorus with full vocals and brass section.

         Although only showcasing four tracks, it's clear that Super Best Friends Club has a lot more to offer than the somewhat weedy name suggests, and I for one am certainly excited to hear more of what the collaborative has in store for the future.
