about

At long last Supercrush is finally back with Supersingle #3. Luckily, the wait has been worth it and the reward is two more hummable ear-worms that will refuse to leave your head. The A side, "I’ve Been Around," is two minutes of uptempo summertime guitar-pop perfection, full of stacked vocal harmonies, rock ’n’ roll flourishes, and just a touch of fuzz when it really counts - quite possibly the ‘Crush’s catchiest tune yet. Side B, on the other hand, finds the group exploring somewhat more bittersweet territory with the song "Brutal Honesty." While equally as melodic as the A side, "Brutal Honesty" takes the energy down a notch in order to evoke a more forlorn set of emotions, landing on the the cliche, but inescapably accurate truism: “life’s not fair”. Not exactly a “feel good” song, and yet, it strikes that irresistible chord of melancholy that aches so pleasantly.

about

Supercrush Seattle, Washington

After finally embracing all that is sweet and sublime as the primary songwriter of San Francisco’s shoegaze darlings Modern Charms, Palm continues to explore the saccharine side of things with his current group, Supercrush. ... more

Track Name: I've Been Around
I've been up and I've been down
I've been around
I've been here and I've been there
Been everywhere

I got so high I left the ground
I've been around

I've been high and I've been low
It comes and goes
I've been wrong and I've been right
Well, that's just life

I've searched my whole life for something I haven't found
I got so high I left the ground
Sunk so deep I almost drowned
Yeah, I've been around

I've searched my whole life for something I haven't found
I've been on the upside and I've been upside down
I got so high I left the ground
Sunk so deep I almost drowned
Yeah, I've been around
Track Name: Brutal Honesty
"Look within yourself," they say, "that's the key"
But when I look inside I don't like what I see
I don't like what I see

So you tell me, how's that for brutal honesty?

"Things aren't as bad as they seem," is what they say
But when I take a look it doesn't seem that way
No, it doesn't seem that way to me

So you tell me, how's that for brutal honesty?

All the tears in the world now
Can't change the way things are
And all your prayers to a god that isn't there
Can't change the fact that life's not fair
