Biography

Formed in 2006 and collectively lead by the clear-voiced, half-showtune/half-crooner informed vocal delivery of their charismatic lead singer/songwriter Mark Hanify, Supermodel is the most invigorating new melodic rock act to emerge out of Wellington, New Zealand in recent times.

Structured around comparable musical traditions to those existed within by the likes of Queen, Muse and The Strokes, Supermodel is a four-piece band made up of Mark on lead vocals/guitar, his sister Rose on keyboards, Michael White on bass and Tony Kemp on drums. All top-tier singers, Rose, Michael and Tony provide lush backing vocals, fleshing out Mark�s melody and harmony centralised song-writing into powerfully vibrant stadium size arrangements. Lyrically dealing with the key themes of love and adversity, Supermodel make songs for soul searching. Emotive and moving, their music serves as a comforting reminder that more often then not, things will be alright.

All lifelong musicians, since inception, Supermodel have played support across the country to the cr�me de la cr�me of commercial acts in New Zealand, performing everywhere, from humble pubs in Wanganui to The cavernous TSB Arena in Wellington. Having opened for the likes of Midnight Youth, Gin Wigmore, The Feelers, Jonny Love, Frankie Stevens and Dane Rumble, Supermodel have entertained crowds of up to 15,000 at outdoor events such as The Jackson Street Fiesta, The Island Bay Festival and Toast Martinborough.

Recently featured on TV1�s Good Morning Show, Supermodel is currently drafting material for their forthcoming debut album. Building around well-received singles such as �The Walk of Shame� and their current release �Send Me Dreaming� (and it�s excellent Ivan Slavov directed/produced video clip), this June, following a national tour in May, Supermodel will venture to the UK to record with respected Welsh producer Greg Haver (Opshop, Manic Street Preachers) and make a few keynote showcase performances.

Having received extensive radio/TV support from the New Zealand B.Net, Kiwi FM and Juice TV, and with the unreserved backing of Opshop�s Jason Kerrison behind them, Supermodel are moving on a swift trajectory upwards. Mostly importantly though, they make songs they completely love; and given half a chance, so will you.

Lyrics

Send Me Dreaming

Written By: Mark Hanify

Olden times seen through your eyes
wishing for that golden light
reaching out for something new
listen now I'm telling you

Take my hand and treat me right
cause I'm yours tonight
send me dreaming

I've had girls but not your kind
so I'm your tonight

Fall inside your wandering mind
thoughts of all those sorry times
seeing dreams of what you want
these are things that I have got

Take my hand and treat me right
cause I'm yours tonight
send me dreaming

I've had girls but not your kind
so I'm your tonight
send me dreaming

And if I could dicover you
tell me things that you wanna do
and you know just how I feel for you
I do

Guitar Solo

And if I could dicover you
tell me things that you wanna do
and you know just how I feel for you
I do

Take my hand and treat me right
cause I'm yours tonight
dreaming

I've had girls but not your kind
so I'm your tonight
send me dreaming

I'm yours tonight
send me dreaming

Walk of Shame

Written By: Mark Hanify

Your waking up a little
you pick yourself up of the floor
looking around the room and
you cant recall the night before

So you had a big one
you spent your money
and what for?

You do the walk of shame
You do the walk of shame once more

Wishing you were sober
but your drunk

You dont remember her
you dont remember who your scored

Because she wasnt there
when you woke up on the floor

Wishing you were sober
but your drunk
but your drunk
again

As you walk inside your house
the mood has changed
she sits you waiting for you
now it's time to open up
and let it rain
those tears are pouring on you

Your waking up a little
you pick yourself up of the floor
looking round the room
you cant recall the night before

wishing you were sober
but your drunk
but your drunk
are you wasted all the time?
but your drunk again..
