Last week was Valentine’s Day, so it was all about the love songs. That’s all fine and well, I’m on record as a fan of most love songs. But sometimes you want something a little bit different, or a little bit spicier. The quintet Superet have heard your call, and they have answered in the best way. Get ready for a funky, exciting musical journey as we premiere Superet’s new single “Comes As Relief.”
For almost 40 seconds, “Comes As Relief” is all instrumental. The deeper, groovy synths provide the feeling and spice of the song you need, and the melodic line in the instrumental serves as a very hummable tune. Matt Blitzer comes in with the vocals from there, and the man has charisma pouring out of him. Between his great guitar playing and the smoothness with which he delivers the lyrics, you’ll be entranced by his performance. His falsetto is superb, and the wordplay he’s developed on “Come As Relief” is clever and fun to listen to. At points during “Comes As Relief” the backing vocals repeat “this is not a love song,” and they’re right. “Comes As Relief” is something much more electric and wild.
Superet have quite the vivid classification for “Comes As Relief.” Blitzer says, “This tune is adjacent to a love song. It’s a love song’s noisy, sexually frustrated next door neighbor. Sometimes we put a little too much energy into people or things we know aren’t good for us. This song’s about getting out of a relationship like that.”
“Comes As Relief” is the first track off Superet’s new three-song maxi-single, with the full project dropping tomorrow, February 22. The band will also be joining Substream favorite Caroline Rose on tour over the next few weeks. You can find those dates and stream “Comes As Relief” below.
