The Who: Superet (Los Angeles, CA)
The What: For about 2 1/2 minutes Superet relentlessly asks a simple question and – while we’re not sure if they ever got an answer – one thing makes itself clear: Matt Blitzer (vox/guitar), Alex Fischel (keys), Sam KS (drums), Patrick Kelly (bass) and Isaac Tamburino (guitar/keys/percussion) have a feel for dishing out a jittery blitzkrieg of polished, punkish rock.
“Who Is This Guy” is only the second single from the barely 1 1/2 years-old foursome currently on tour with LA supergroup DREAMCAR and it’s an exercise in bouncy percussion and skittish synths which caught our ears, but it’s the video’s oddly “Bohemian Rhapsody”-esque aesthetic that caught our eye.
“The idea for the video came to me in the waiting room at my doctor’s office.” Blitzer says. “I thought it would be interesting to build a strange sort of limbo waiting room for the song to live inside. We like to make our own videos. I art directed and shot it on my iPhone. The band and I built the set and edited it together.”
And now we’re wondering if any anesthetic was involved and, seriously, who is that guy?
