"Supervillain is the embodiment of the online façade we all create and let control our thoughts"
Between You & Me are back and doing what they do best.
The band have just released a new track called 'Supervillain' that shimmers and shakes with a jovial atmosphere and a killer hook designed to be lodged in your brain.
It expands on their vision whilst also keeping the core of what makes them so insatiable in place.
Vocalist Jake Wilson had this to say about the tune:
"Supervillain is a track about the notion of wanting to be liked by everyone and coming to terms with the fact that it’s okay if someone doesn’t like you. The modern desire for approval, appreciation, and acceptance from others is magnified thanks to social media platforms. Being the singer of a band, there can be an unhealthy desire to uphold a certain persona or image to feel accepted – like you belong.
Supervillain is the embodiment of the online façade we all create and let control our thoughts. When writing for this record, I consciously separated myself from social media to focus on my true values."
Here we go then:
It's the first new music from the band since the release of 'Famous' in 2019.
That sounds like this:
Jake also played the track for us as part of our Shower Sessions last year, which looked like this:
