Just to Feel Alive

Oliver Hindle is one of those cats that never ceases to amaze me. Whether with bands like Scared of Dinosaurs and Tetrastar or from his own sometimes-solo-sometimes-group project Superpowerless, he always manages to combine the best elements of lo-fi electronica and punked-up pop rock.

Just last week the aforementioned Superpowerless – now a duo with Tetrastar's Jaylyn Coffin – dropped a brand new single entitled "We Throw Shapes." And I dug it. I dug it so much that I actually did the unthinkable – I purchased it via iTunes. With real money. (I still feel kinda dirty about it, truth be told.)

Oliver let slip to me that he plans to shortly release another single before dropping the forthcoming album in its entirety, and I for one can't wait. To find out why I suggest you peep the following official video for "We Throw Shapes." It provides appropriately amazing visuals for what may well be your new favorite song.

Nice tune! I loved the pop sensibilities combined with chippy bleeps and bloops. Thanks (as always) for pointing out new music!

I too bought this track from iTunes shortly after hearing it. I can't stop listening! If this is a sign of things to come, I feel that Mr. Hindle may have finally found an amazing "groove" for Superpowerless.
