The British weather may have been disappointing this summer, but Supersaurus have exactly what it takes to lift the mood.
The eclectic indie pop band is about to drop their latest track, "Let U Down," due on streaming platforms September 1st.
The moody but colourful track addresses a jaded lover, set against a punchy electronic rhythm. It’s loaded with noughties pop rock inspiration combined with a synthy 80s vibe, making it the perfect symbol of nostalgia for any age group to reminisce on summers gone by.
The irresistibly catchy hook and heartfelt, melodramatic lyrics (which are practically begging to be screamed along to) are sure to sound amazing blasting out of car speakers with the windows rolled down.
Despite only making music together since last year, Supersaurus already have eight singles under their belt and have developed a unique, distinctive style: a but dancey, a bit rock ‘n’ roll - and a lot of energy.
While their lyrics might explore melancholic themes, their overall sound is most definitely fun and playful.
Through the power of music, they also advocate for the LGBT+ community, identifying as a “non-binary fronted girl band”.
Like many of their previous songs, “Let U Down” seems to centre on queer love and heartbreak. Lyrics such as “I know you want to kiss me but you don’t know how / It’s easier to miss me when no one’s around” will resonate with many, describing the fears and difficulties queer people face when being open about their relationships and the woes that can come with them, compared to those with more normalised hetero relationship dynamics.
With the release of “Let U Down”, Supersaurus are bound to become a powerful force in the queer music scene, challenging the straight male stereotype of indie musicians and proving that great music has no gender.
