Manningtree’s most famous foursome returns with the long-awaited follow-up last year’s quite popular Diving Bell single. The pop-punk upstarts have produced a six-track sugar rush of bubblegum rock shenanigans, honed over a year of relentless gigging that has taken the band from pub function rooms to the Lake Stage at Latitude (and back).
Produced and mixed by the same team responsible for the band’s surprise summer hit (in Austria), the EP was recorded at Punch Studios in Ipswich by child prodigy George Perks and mixed by Transgressive production guru David Pye.
The CD comes in a heavy stock, reverse board gatefold sleeve with spot varnish finish, featuring artwork by the irrepressible Ben Brown.
Here’s what some blogs have said about Horse in the first few days since it was released:
“Bands don’t come more instantly infectious than SuperGlu. On their new ‘Horse’ EP … they affix their crunching indie-pop to pin-sharp melody in a manner that’s every bit as unshakable as that band name might suggest.” DIY
“SuperGlu don’t necessarily do anything new but they do it with such energy, verve and sheer enthusiasm that they will win over even the most jaded of listeners. 10/10.” Outline
“Oozing with catchy melodies, this energetic track somehow manages combines raw rock with bouncy pop, resulting in two and a half minutes of innocent rebellion, that’s ridiculously addictive.” London on the Inside
