hmv's Next Big Thing... #133 Super Whatevr
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you slacker trio Super Whatevr...
Who Are They?
Super Whatevr are guitarist/vocalist Skyler McKee, bassist Thomas Waale and drummer Luke Mensink and come all the way from Costa Mesa in California. Newly signed to pop-punk overlords Hopeless Records, they're a slight departure for the label most famous of All Time Low and Neck Deep with a more alt-rock twinge to their sound.
Who Do They Sound Like?
The influences are fairly obvious, the guitars owe much to Sonic Youth's more disciplined moments, while the melodies echo Feeder's glory days, all fed through Weezer's Rivers Cuomo's ear for a chorus.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Powerful riffs and the kind of brilliant melodies that sound effortless, but you know actually took forever to come up with, hammered together. It's wonderful stuff.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. Their new single 'Bloomfield' is below for you.
