If you’ve had your ear to the ground, or the radio, or pretty much anywhere else recently, chances are you’ll already be aware of this four piece. Starting out as Baby100, before being briefly billed as Junnk, Superfood unleashed their debut track – after months of live shows that did everything to build the hype – live on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show. Not bad going for a band who were still playing pub venues.
And they certainly prove themselves worthy of the hysteria. Debut single, also entitled ‘Superfood’ (below), features loud and distorted guitars, baggy drum beats, and possibly the catchiest chorus you ever will hear. Whether you play it once, or you play it a hundred times (and we do recommend playing it a hundred times), you’ll soon find it impossible cook anything without singing-a-long. Superfood picnic, anyone?
