We're sooo happy to welcome moody Vancouver pop outfit Supermoon to the Mint family! If you've been to any of our Ridiculously Early Xmas Parties over the past couple years, this should come as no surprise, since we've been huge fans for a while now!
We're super excited to announce that on May 20, the group’s latest excursion, Playland, will be arriving as a 2x7" via Mint. The album bubbles with intelligent, weirdo songs that combine sunny riffs and distorted ring outs. Coated in sugary vocals with driving bass, spectral guitars, and marching drums, the songs of Supermoon seem to wink at something lurking beneath the surface.
Rising from the ashes of two former Vancouver bands, the garage rock outfit Movieland and jangle pop 3-piece Pups, Supermoon borrows aspects from both groups to create catchy, challenging songs. Multi-instrumentalists Adrienne LaBelle and Alie Lynch take turns creating rich, dark bass and bright, sneering lead lines. Katie Gravestock, known as Groovestock to her bandmates, lives up to the name by providing an endless supply of smooth, melodic riffs. Selina Crammond acts as the backbone to the group with her playful drumbeats, reminiscent of the Flying Nun catalogue. Each of the members trade off on vocalist and songwriting duties, making the album at once eclectic and cohesive.
