Lost in the sky - Superhooch (track review)
year - 2017
genre - psychedelic, Stoner rock
Lost in the sky is the latest single released by Coventry stoner-rock outfit, Superhooch -
The vocals also take a new dynamic, lead singer Jonny Worsley being joined by guitarist Chris Worsley on co-lead vocals that add a melancholic deeper sound that clash but also compliment the lead singer's high pitched style. It is heavier but still retains melody - something many modern metal bands fail to do. Lead Guitarist Johnny Kingham and Drummer Peanut Marshall add to the backing vocals as well to give a fuller sound.
Like any decent band a strong rhythm section is required and Superhooch do not disappoint on Lost in the sky, with Marshall's drums and Steve Clarke's bass playing working together furiously adding a huge driving force behind the song.
Lost in the Sky is fast, slow, unique, strange and complicated - and it surprisingly works! Adding a new dynamic to modern rock music and breaking the ideology of sticking to one genre, Superhooch are an extremely promising band that offer something new to the scene instead of the monotonous "scream-grindcore" bands that are filling the local underground music scenes now.
With a catchy chorus that makes reference to the bands name, presumably as its named after an alcoholic drink, a fast and aggressive solo by Kingham and overall a general progression in the band's writing SuperHooch have released something special here.
Daniel A. Clarke
Superhooch have an EP coming out on the 13th of May as well as having their first EP, a live album and Lost in the Sky all on Bandcamp.
