Supersaurus Drops "Let U Down": A Vibrant Ode to Queer Love and Indie Pop

by Geena Ling

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.

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’
