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 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 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 in March 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 will follow it up in September with 'Mile High Club' - this time produced by Dublin beat maker Plant Food, a track that sees them take yet another musical turn and one that has already been played on RTE 2FM and BBC Radio 1Xtra. The song acknowledges 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....
