Since Tennessee-based duo Superbody released their dreamy debut album, Hades Land, Caleb Dills and Robert McCurry have released their newest single “Camera.” With a breathy opening, the track starts with energy and vibrancy. Similar to their ethereal, 80’s styled predecessor, “Camera” plays in the same vein, with McCurry’s deep fluid vocals, juxtaposed with Dills’ taut, synth-laced beats. The track slightly strays from the haunting melodies of Hades Land, instead adopting a more synth-pop sound.
No doubt, this track will sound even better live. Superbody is no stranger to Athens. Catch McCurry and Dills at Caledonia Lounge on February 13th.
Nikki grew up in an imitation German town in Georgia by the name of Helen. It wasn’t until middle school that she started to get interested in the arts: painting, music, and writing. She wrote in her diary, sketched in art class and listened to regretful music. By high school, her tastes became a little more refined. She found Fiona Apple, Lou Reed and Giant Drag, and they remain her favorites in college. She was accepted to the University of Georgia in 2012 and is currently majoring in English. Upon moving to Athens from a town with more trees than people, Nikki was a bit overwhelmed. However, there is certainly no lack of inspiration in Athens, and she appreciates its love for the arts and its service as a platform.
