Having been firm favourites of ours with previous offerings such as ‘Weekend’ and ‘Dreams’, and having wowed us with their incredible live show at our first ever gig at The Finsbury, Manningtree band Superglu are back with their first single in two years, and we couldn’t be happier!
Oozing the band’s trademark buoyant energy, ‘Forever Endeavour’ reminds us of all we’ve been missing over the last couple of years. Filled with a gentle sentimentality that we may not have heard in previous releases, alongside those scuzzy hooks and whirring harmonies that we all know and love, this new single is sure to add a little bit of sunshine to these dark Autumn evenings; an instantly uplifting and immensely infectious indie-pop anthem.
Of the track, lead vocalist Ben explains:
“The band had stopped making music and my girlfriend Krista (and bass player) was preparing to move to Berlin. I was at a low point. As I sat in my house strumming the chords and singing the verse, I heard Krista singing a potential chorus whilst packing upstairs: “Remember the good times” seemed to summarise it all… This is a love-letter from me and Krista to both SuperGlu and one another – a swan song we thought no one would hear has found new meaning and brought SuperGlu back to life.”
