Super Volcano is new on the scene in New York. An unknown, garage synth-pop three piece that's ready to climb into the hearts and minds of NYC indie music fans with songs that are equally interesting and head-bop inducing. Based solely upon their four song demo EP, this is a band full of heaping amounts of potential. Hear me out - this music will prove my words to be less than hyperbolic, I promise. There are two sample songs posted below, and another couple worth your time on their MySpace (especially "Firestorm"), so check out each of their songs, and see these guys live, for a complete picture of this band you're bound to love if you ever found The Unicorns appealing. Or, looking even closer to home - consider Super Volcano as a friendly foil to Mancino. Goodness knows how much we all love them... and I don't actually see the two bands fighting for turf here in the crowded landscape of New York up and comers, but rather as two sides of the same coin that is the ever-changing landscape of poppy indie-rock.

(friendly note to reader: you'll see The Unicorns and the word "urgency" mentioned more than once in the sentences below)

"Instant Attraction" is a perfectly messy and raw two minute pop song. It begins harmlessly enough with a toy-organ sounding ditty playing out and evolving into swells of harmony and urgency. It's the kind of song that sounds as if these guys had it building up inside of them and simply had to get it out and on record. A song I'd imagine really cooks live, and a nice lead single to get kids' heads ringing. "Jupiter" is a bit more of an adventure into everything that makes Super Volcano tick. Here they mix in elements of Beatles-esque harmony/arrangements (think of a garage-pop version of XTC) with the urgency, fire, and desperation found in certain songs by The Unicorns or They Might Be Giants. Urgency/Unicorns, urgency/Unicorns - repeat/refrain ad infinitum. I can't help it, that's what comes to mind with Super Volcano.

There's less of an inside joke nature with this band, though, than with the two previously mentioned bands, and thank goodness for that. Super Volcano clearly believes in these songs they've made. Like I said, they had to make this music. And who can argue with them based upon the results? They're scratching so many of my own personal musical itches by blending together their dramatic pop sensibilities with synthesizers and production that's rough around the edges; I'm completely ready to declare them fit for mass consumption. Okay, fit for the quirky, bookworm-smart, indie-pop loving, "I hate my boyfriend's taste in music", set. My kind of people. Super Volcano is my kind of band.

SuperVolcano ~ Jupiter: Sadly for me, I don't often get to see all the bands I love as it's a bit of a trek down to London. It would be an even further trek for me to see the SuperVolcanoes as they are a new York based band who specialise in a rather lovely brand of garage/synth pop/shoe gazing (which i presume means some rather introspective lyrics, though I could be utterly wrong). Jupiter (the song) was recommended to me by a friend who thought i needed a bit less pop in my life. I gave it a listen and then, dammit, couldn't get it out of my head. The tune hurtles forward like a 100mph train with no brakes, only making quick stops at Harmonytown and Melodysville, as they pack the verses and chorus with enough sing a long goodness to keep fans happy for years to come. Musical influences such as XTC, beatles, beach boys and even modern rock bands like Coldplay, Keane and Athlete, with enough pop stylings to cross multiple genres. - www.thezapping.com
