PD: How would you describe yourself or your band as an artist?
SM: So we are alt grunge/punk with elements from range of different genres.
PD: Who and what inspires you to make music, both in terms of musical and other influences? What do you like to write about in your songs?
SM: Non Musical: King Charles II Jack Kahuna Laguna Quentin Tarantino
Musical influences: Nirvana Frank Carter & the rattlesnakesSonic youth
PD: What are your aspirations as an artist?
SM: To be a regularly touring band and hope to record and release an EP in future too!
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
SM: They can be about anything, but more recently, they have been quite angry and frustration driven tracks because of what’s going on in the world around us. We also like to leave our music open to interpretation as we feel that anyone can connect with our music in whatever circumstance.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
SM: We are very active on Instagram promoting our upcoming shows and music also Facebook and tiktok. Word of mouth still something we use to promote Supera Morza. We heavy promote our music on Spotify featuring in some great editorial playlists such as ‘The Punk List’ and ‘All New Rock’.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
SM: It’s catch 22. We live in a world now where we can get access to any form music from anywhere anytime whenever we like and that’s unbelievable, streaming has changed the world and I think music consumers, of which we all are, love this! However the downside of downloading music such as poor Spotify streaming rates and low pay for artists raises so many concerns. Artists struggle to make money for creative work they do.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
SM: Nirvana- Aneurysm I think the chorus is just fuckin mint, it goes off and stays in your head forever. I think also the way the song is set out, the build ups, the arrangements. It’s set up to be memorable.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
SM: People who don’t wipe piss off the toilet seat
People leaving drinks on stages and then they get knocked over on your gear. Pack it in
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
SM: We would probably say selling out our headline show at The Castle in Manchester. We did not expect to sell the show out in 6 days having just released our debut single and had never played a show as Supera Morza with all our new material.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
SM: Roadkill our newest single is available now on all major streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer as well as Scrubber our last single!
