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 and hip-hop. The band made their live debut in 2016 and caught the attention of many thanks to the release of first Irish 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 by the likes of The Irish Times, Nialler9 and The Thin Air, the quartet of Hudis, Glory, Solo The Astronaut and Grvz began a run of releases for 2017 with 'Not Ready To Leave', a track that mixed 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 was followed a number of festival and club shows across the country. The summer also saw them collaborate on a remix of 'No Pressure' with Australian producer Odd Mob for their first international release, hitting some of the key Spotify dance playlists and receiving radio support from the likes of Triple J. They followed these with 'Mile High Club' - this time produced by Dublin beat maker Plant Food, a track that saw them take yet another musical turn while acknowledging how hard it can be for a struggling musician when prospective partners are looking for a more stable lifestyle. It asks them to have a little faith, as one day soon they'll be living the high life.
Their first release for 2018, 'Here', once more married the band's classic influences with a sound that is very much of the moment - marking them as artists ready for the international stage - and saw them play shows around Ireland, including a headliner at Dublin's Button Factory, and a number of festivals. They are currently preparing new material for release in 2019 via Believe Digital.
"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)
