Our Artist Of The Week is SupaLung!
SupaLung is a new indie-rock outfit composed of singer-songwriter, Sam Brookes, and multi-instrumentalist producer, Pete Josef. The duo met some years back on the burgeoning Bristol music scene: being fans of each other’s work they ended up becoming great friends. Brookes was actually helping Josef build a studio at his home when they decided it was time to combine their love for songs and making records.
Listen to ‘Pleasure‘, here:
‘Pleasure’ is their debut single. The song is an ode to creativity – how it unlocks new worlds within you and enriches your life. It explores the tensions felt as an artist, having to find (and re-find) that spark each day, while managing expectations and the ever-growing pressures to pay rent and build a career.
In Sam’s own words: “My creativity has been vital. It saved my life, saved my head from turning on itself, helped me find new ways to understand myself, the world, and people around me.”
