Dublin, County Dublin
Four musicians who first met playing gospel in their local church, Super Silly bring a rare sense of passion and fun to modern RnB. The band made their live debut in August of last year and caught the attention of many thanks to the release of first single 'No Pressure'. They have a live reputation built on memorable shows at the likes of Cork Jazz Festival, Hard Working Class Heroes, Quarter Block Party and Word Up Collective's own Bello Bar gigs, as well as their experience playing alongside Hare Squead.
Tipped for great things in the year ahead by the likes of Nialler9, Goldenplec and The Thin Air, the quartet of Whodis, Glory, Solbas and Grooves began a run of releases for 2017 with 'Not Ready To Leave', a track that mixes classic soul and RnB, modern hip-hop and the joyous energy of their gospel roots. It was accompanied by the band's first ever music video, directed by Seán Clancy, and saw them booked for a number of festival shows throughout the summer. A new single, 'Dubai', is due in July.
Summer 2017 dates:
May 11th - Music Cork
June 3rd - Forbidden Fruit
June 4th - KFest
July 8th - Simma Down
August 4th - Indiependence Festival
"A suave mix of modern R&B, soul and pop..." (Nialler9)
"What has us particularly brimming with excitement is their ability to move between singing and rhyming at will and their penchant for a killer chorus...." (GoldenPlec)
"A prospect that slices through the doom and gloom and offers acute relief...." (The Thin Air)
