Debt Offensive (2018)
I am pretty damn excited that there is a new Supercrush 7". Though the band's output is sporadic and has been limited to singles so far, they are quietly amassing a collection of some pretty incredible pop songs.
Everything I loved about 90's era guitar pop bands like Poole, The Merrymakers or perhaps the very poppiest moments of the Lemonheads is captured in the two songs on this 7". A side "I've Been Around" is the more brazenly catchy of the two with its perfectly executed harmonies and escalating guitar riffs. I just can't get enough of that warm, California, Overwhelming Colorfast style of guitar tone the band has so expertly dialed in.
Things mellow out a bit on the B side "Brutal Honesty," but again the songwriting chops and big, big hooks are on full display once again. I really love this band and I desperately want them to put out a full length album. Don't get me wrong, I'l happily take as many 7"s as they're willing to release, but I feel like the band would really be able to take advantage of a the full length format and really deliver something special. I hope that time comes sooner than later. Again, just a fantastic band.
