Supermoon (2018)

Vancouver, BC

People commonly misunderstand pop music as being all big choruses and ear-to-ear grins. If any band proves there’s room for malaise among melody, it’s Supermoon. While they have attention-grabbing hooks and are instantly memorable for their flits of surf and post-punk, it’s their glumness that leaves you wanting more. Sometimes you have to lean into a mood to make it through to the other side.
