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.

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
