Super Squarecloud: UK based experimental pop/rock band (E103)

About: Super Squarecloud

Super Squarecloud, Swindon UK based four piece Experimental Pop/Rock band from E103 of ArenaCast

Sometimes they sound to me like an early The Cardigans, but with more drive and vigor. They describe their sound as "somewhere between pop and chaos" and recorded their debut EP "ourselves on old broken equipment in our guitarists bedroom". And they are #1 on R&R World Weekly Chart. Amazing Super Squarecloud!

1. Is there a story behind your song It Gak?
We'll cop out and invite the listener to work out what it's all about ha, I mean that's the fun part right? It's something we do our selves, we never really write about anything specific. we just put a load of nonsense down and then (with everyone else who's interested) work what it could mean to us, if anything. ;)

2. What do you think of episode 103? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
We're suckers for plinky melodies so really enjoyed The Cry Baby - Lullaby on E103. Loved the spacey production. ooh and I really loved Mogil's Uglan Min Fin on E102 Beautiful stuff!

3. What bands from your country/city would you recommend to those who like your music?
Not similar per se but these are our favourite local acts:
Nudy Bronque | The Fixed | Crash and the Bandicoots

4. We know, that you have a lot of concerts planned in the next couple of weeks. Do you usually prepare any surprises or jokes for your audience? Who will share the stage with you?
We try and stick as many random elements into our songs to make us more visually interesting so spontaneus bouts of rhythmic clapping, sticking instruments upon instruments with gaffa tape, complicated 'dead stops' electroacoustic-esque breakdowns. Hard to explain actually ha, i guess they're more musical gimmicks than jokes as such.

5. In your profile on R&R World, we can see some cool artwork. Who designed it? Could you share links to some other works of this designer?
All our artwork is created by ourselves, there's no extra work to show unfortunately! ha. None of us would be considered artists but we enjoy drawing painting etc and the band has provided a good excuse for us to get our brushes out.
