Chien Andalou Remixes of Revelations & Revolutions
"Silly Games", Our 3rd Single
The 3rd single “Silly Games” is a continuation of the Supermercados’ DIY approach; recorded in Dave’s Lounge then self-produced and independently released by the band. With a roving bassline inspired by the Jam and keys nodding to The Stranglers, “Silly Games” opens up into chiming guitars and a chorus that is reminiscent of Supertramp.
Lyrically, “I hope you live up to your own hype” refers to the difference between how people portray themselves at the start of a relationship and their true self that emerges. “That’s why I hate the opposite of sex” reflects the perils and pitfalls of dating when “It’s all way too complex, when I just want to hold you” descends into indifference and a “nah na nah” chorus.
"Lights", Our 2nd Single
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
