Superfamily - Teens Of The 70's

"I keep dancing to the song that your bitch threw away"

I've promised you the biggest, most bombastic band out there today and I don't think that this will disappoint. Superfamily (kicking off my Norwegian Artists Week) are like nothing else out there. A huge seven member band (including three background singers/dancers), they mix styles and sounds from every decade of popular music and fuse it all together with an undeniable energy and spark. Their new album Warszawa is (no joke) one of the best albums I've ever heard. Their first single off of the record, the brilliantly titled The Radio Has Expressed Concerns About What You Did Last Night is, I've read, the most played song on Norwegian radio this year. And, as such, I'm counting on it to be the same sort of breakthrough that It Takes A Fool To Remain Sane was for the Ark. It's a grand, catchy track that only reveals its true brilliance after a few listens. I'm posting the music video below because I want you to see it. But, I'm choosing to post a different track today. Teens Of The 70's is less of a straghtforward pop track but that is in no way a bad thing. Epic in every sense of the word, the song moves through different portions, drawing to mind comparisons from Queen to ELO to Tim Curry to Green Day to The Killers. It's the kind of song that just keeps expanding. Just when you think it can't get any bigger, it does. It's also the kind of song that demands a full stereo system (or at the very least, a nice pair of headphones). It is, quite simply, like no other song I've heard before and is 100% more ambitious than any other band out there right now. Expect a review of the album soon.

Both of these bands seem to show a lot of promise. Thanks! I especially like Mars TV. Now if only they had a record out for download...
