The burgeoning Brooklyn outfit showcase their diversity on the new release.
Following on from their encouraging debut release ‘I Don’t Believe It’s True’, a track packed full of garage rock flair and an instantly memorable chorus, Brooklyn band Superswell are back with their sophomore single ‘Dutch Courage’, a satirical track about alcohol and the way that it can mask our social anxieties and hang ups.
The track takes on a more moody tone than its predecessor, inducing a Nirvana-esque sense of grunginess to go with its more sombre subject matter, showcasing a wildly different side to the band. There is something really haunting and brooding about this track, serving as something as a more modern and expansive take on the grunge genre as a whole, incorporating trashier, more innovative ways to explore the sense of hurt and anger that is portrayed here, worlds away from its more carefree, soaring counterpart. ‘Dutch Courage’ is a track that highlights the range and depth that Superswell have, and the different avenues that they can explore with their sound when the mood and tone calls for it.
