SuperGlu. are celebrating their appearance at this weekend’s SWN Festival, with a specially commissioned one-off video for their track ‘Oil’ imagining their journey to the event as filmed by crazed super-fan The Decibel Kid and we have the premiere above.
The four piece from Manningtree, Suffolk, who headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Reading/Leeds festivals and were one of the first acts announced for SXSW 2017 this week, gave superfan The Decibel Kid the chance to create the film to go with live favourite and ‘Horse’ EP track ‘Oil’.
Shot in a two hour window before a gig at a music festival in Ipswich, with additional footage harvested by Ric as he drove around the Essex/Suffolk countryside, the results capture the band’s uniquely madcap sense of humour. All without any serious injury being caused, with bassist Krista Lynch admitting: “getting a drum kit, band and camera person in the back of a van should’ve resulted in more black eyes than it did. Thank you Ric. SuperGlu are fans of you.”
After their appearance at SWN – from 4:30pm – 5:15pm at Four Bars at Dempseys on Saturday October 22 – the band will continue preparing for the launch of their next single, ‘Dreams’, due out on Antigen Records on November 25.
