"Lights", Our 2nd Single, Out Now!!
Our new single “Lights” was completed against the odds during lockdown and came out on Spotify, Apple Music and the Supermercados.com on Friday 26th February.
Lyrically, Lights touches on how easy it is to get caught up in the abundant absurdities of life. Light could be the biggest dreams or the smallest contentment. How easy it is lose your way and to have to find your light again.
How we all have a divine light, we always need to have some light on the horizon and how we are the light.
This song's message is hope in the face of adversity, a perfect anthem for our times.
"A vigorous indie rock banger with divine guitar riffs, dynamic vocals, never ending energy, that should be played at maximum volume. By the way, do you remember S*M*A*S*H? " Christos Doukakis, Last Day Deaf
What Do The Songs Sound Like?
Revelations & Revolutions
"Revelations & Revolutions" is the innocent joy of discovering old music giving way to bittersweet love lost and feeling invisible; “Got a phone call yesterday, turns out I’m dead”.
The chorus “Revelations and revolutions, the sweetest song sung by an enemy” is unrequited and unfulfilled; “Now I have something collateral as a keepsake”. The breakdown is the musical equivalent of picking yourself up off the floor and starting again.
Henry Supermercado spits the words from the first half of the song in an entirely different sonic context, before the song bounces around several minor planets with a bumpy landing.
"Record" was the first thing we wrote and is about the golden age of music and a love of old records.
The intro line; “Old records outsell new ones, I wear a vinyl sleeve, the world’s vehicle seems to be a popular disease”, lays the blame for the state of modern music squarely at talent shows and the loss of so many live music venues.
From the ethereal vocal harmonies, to a swing that sounds like Curtis Mayfield fist-bumping a Hendrix ballad, to the guitar solo channelled through a forgotten Acid Rock record.
The wounded acceptance of “Where I be pioneer, the first to feel the pain, I do it only for your name”, is our hero steadfastly on the side of the music.
