Neosupervital makes electronic pop music for dancing and related activities.

Biography

Neosupervital is Tim O'Donovan, a multi-instrumentalist from Dublin. He wants to make you dance.

A debut album, Neosupervital, was released in late 2006 to much applause and a whole lot of live action, including opening slots for acts like Tom Vek, Money Mark, and Divine Comedy and a Neosupervital headline tour around Ireland.

The video for Rachel was picked up by MTV2 and this was swiftly followed by a tour with the Human League in the UK and Europe.

Returning to Ireland, NSV appeared on various high profile shows on national television and radio, played live at all the main summer festivals (Oxegen, Electric Picnic etc.) and capped off a successful album campaign sharing a stage with Wolfgang Fleur, (ex-Kraftwerk) and Dave Ball (Soft Cell) in early 2008.

Tim spent 2008 getting his new studio together in the countryside, with writing and recording commencing in early 2009.

The resulting new Neosupervital album is called 'Proceeds' and contains ten prime slices of electronic pop.

'Proceeds' is due for domestic release in early 2010 and features the singles 'Dance With You' (currently enjoying extensive national radio play) and dancefloor favourite 'Do What You Feel' (to be released on limited 7").

The sweaty, dance-heavy live Neosupervital experience will be travelling internationally in 2010.

Neosupervital tunes have been used in TV shows (Raw, RTE tv, Ireland, 2008) and feature films (Eden, general release, Ireland, USA, 2008), and Tim has just produced and co-written the debut album from Ireland's finest electro diva Veda, as well as writing his first feature film soundtrack.

Lyrics

Now That I've Found It

Written By: Tim O'Donovan/Neosupervital

E G C D
Close down half your brain, that half you just don't need
If you can't work it out, don't be tempted to feel it
Get rid of all that junk, it's getting in the way
gotta change the tone, to black and white not grey

and my brain feels good, my head's no longer scattered

how can you think that? there's no way to prove it
if i have a problem, i empirically remove it
i paid to think this way, and it was really worth it
i buried my grey side, and i never want to unearth it

and my brain feels good, my head's no longer scattered
and now I'm cured, nothing seems to matter

CHORUS

Now, now, now that I've found it
I don't know how I did without it
Since I shut down everything's clear,
and certainty has replaced the fear

but if you look into my eyes
you'll notice I'm unable to cry
because of what I have been told
everything is removed and cold

Rachel

INTRO
C, G#, F, G

C A
Rachel was a surfer girl
G B¶
you'd always find her out on the water
G A
she had blonde hair that fell down in curls
G B¶ F G
and people said she could be neptunes daughter

she took a trip around the world
when she came back, she nearly got married
but she soon saw sense and
the waves as they broke out on the rocks

C G# F G
and any time, any time that you want to go out,
C (E¶, F)
she'll always be there

you should've seen her with her wetsuit on
standing on a rock, her back to the beach
as she paddled out into the surf
you knew she knew that nobody could reach her
you knew she knew that nobody could reach her

P.H.B. (Pathetic Human Being)

E
lately i owe money to the bank
Am Bm E
and they won't let up until i pay it back

travelling all night with this heavy sack

i've overpacked but it's too late i can't turn back

Am E
oh what is happening to me
Am E
i'm the most pathetic human being you're ever gonna see

go to sleep and i face a blank wall

wake up in the morning and nothing's changed at all

met the right girl but she went away

she up and left the country the next day

all alone feel like i wanna cry

i'm looking for something, anything to get me by

must be something that i can be

look around i can't find one thing to satisfy me

Am E
oh what is happening to me
Am C
i'm the most pathetic human being you're ever gonna see, you're ever
Am E
gonna see, you're ever gonna see

Dance With You

Written By: Tim O'Donovan/Neosupervital

ooh baby I just wanna dance with you
ooh baby there's nothing else that i wanna do
don't wanna know anything about you
where you're from or what you do
just wanna dance with you.

some people want phone numbers
an email address
no i won't see you on facebook
but i really like your dress

some people would see this as
the start of something more
but i just wanna see you
get with me on the floor

ooh baby I just wanna dance with you
ooh baby there's nothing else that i wanna do
don't wanna know anything about you
where you're from or what you do
just wanna dance with you

don't worry about the others
i've seen this all before
the dj playing cool stuff
and no one on the floor

let's pretend we're dancing
like no one else can see
just me looking at you
and you looking at me

you can leave your friends here
hey i really like your shoes
come with me to the dancefloor
i wanna see your moves

i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance

i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance with you
i just wanna dance

ooh baby i just wanted to dance with you
ooh baby i just wanted to dance with you
didn't wanna know anything about
but now you know i really do
cos i danced with you.

Alternative Day

ALTERNATIVE DAY

B D (E)
Do these glasses make me look cool?
B D (E)
do they make me interesting?
B D (E)
Do they hide the fact that I've nothing to say
B D (E)
and what I do say I don't mean?

B D (E)
Do these piercings do it for you?
B D (E)
Tell me do you like what you see?
B D (E)
I had them done last year because I'd nothing else to do
B G# G
I think I'll change this stud for a ring...

D E F#
It doesn't really matter what I say
D E B
people think that I'm cool anyway
D E A B
They don't seem to notice that I'm such a fool
D E B
It's just another alternative day
D E D
It's just another alternative day

Going to the club tonight everyone will be there
I hear it's really hard to get in
some big name dj will be spinning the tunes
I'll just pretend that I know him.

CHORUS
MIDDLE 8 aaaah etc.
G, A, B, G, A, E, G, A, D, E, G, A, B

It's not that difficult to do what I do
just treat everything as a joke
raise an eyebrow and be wryly amused
as you light up another smoke

I don't seem to notice that I'm such a fool
It's just another alternative day
