Punk-pop quartet SuperGlu unveil animated visuals for their latest single ‘Soil’
Marking a thoughtful and ambitious return, the visuals to SuperGlu’s ‘Soil’ is like something you’d see in Rick & Morty. Funding by the PRS Foundation Open Fund for Music Creators, the latest track was released digitally on May 8th in conjunction with Antigen Records.
Illuminating that with each release, SuperGlu are stepping closer to stardom. Gaining support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Radio X and BBC Introducing, the four-piece’s high hopes for the future seem realistic.
On the track, SuperGlu told us, “Soil is a song about sneaking out the back door and running for your life. Making a change and moving on – as long as you keep moving – you cannot be caught. Our seemingly lofty musicals aspirations are effortlessly undermined by a grinning cocksure guitar solo and a “Oh fuck” fluffed drum fill.”
With layers of reassurance in the visuals, the music video for Soil may feel like a comedy sketch, but there’s definitely a deeper meaning behind it. Being chased by the villain, the main protagonists seem to fight for survival in the video.
Staying close to the track’s message about escapism and bravery, the emotive track is occupied with humorous wit in the visuals. A perfect balance between both sides of the spectrum, ‘Soil’ is a triumphant return for Manningtree’s favourite outfit.
