Superfood - 'MAM' EP Superfood Tickets

'90s inspired Brummies retread old ground on debut EP

Superfood - 'MAM' EP

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 3, 2014
  • Label: Infectious
7 / 10 Superfood are nostalgic for something they never had. As frontman Dom Ganderton snarls “How am I t’ah dreeeeeam without tha TV on?” on the Brummie foursome’s first EP, his pangs of boredom point to a lack of ideas, a search for enlightenment in times gone by. The results are such a ’90s pastiche, it’s clear the band just spent a hangover chewing over old episodes of Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush on VHS and chanting to Supergrass cassettes. The clattering drums and indie twangs mean fuck all – Superfood’s imitations are totally uninspired. And yet, when they reproduce the careless ramble of their shambolic gigs – as on ‘Bubbles’ and ‘Melting’ – you’ll forget to ask such questions as: wait, what year are we in?
