Superet has had a busy 2019, having toured up and down the West Coast and across the country all the while releasing their debut album “How To Work A Room” in May. Tracks “Comes As Relief” and “YDS2M” were produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, MGMT, Spoon) and mastered by multiple Grammy winner, Greg Calbi (Arcade Fire, Tame Impala, The War on Drugs). As lead singer/guitarist, Matt Blitzer, best describes, “When entering the ‘room’ in which this album exists, we carry with us a few things in common. Tales of heartbreak, isolation, confusion and desire. The age of the conversationalist, and the art of socializing is in rapid decline. The average attention span is dissolving by the second, and we are more anxious in social settings than ever. Our daily lives are filled with rooms. In each one a potential risk. Our minds and bodies are designed to improve with disorder. Take the risk, embrace disorder, work the room.” The Los Angeles band formed on Valentine’s Day of 2016. Tattooed across the arm of singer/guitarist Matt Blitzer, the date marks both the project’s genesis and the manifestation of the musical partnership between five close friends. Having collaborated in various iterations over the preceding years, Blitzer, along with Alex Fischel (keyboards), Sam KS (drums), Patrick Kelly (bass) and Isaac Tamburino (guitar, keyboards, percussion) took their name from the Latin word, which translates to “may it overflow”.
