Musicians Hudis, Grvz, Solow T.A. and Glory make up Super Silly, a band who met playing gospel in their local Dublin church. Their singles such as ‘Here’ made it onto Spotify’s New Music Friday UK Playlist - we caught up with Hudis to talk about their influences and lastest single ‘Hate Dah’, a very Dublin twist on ‘hate that’.
Super Silly style is live, lit and a whole different vibe or wave.
First up, tell us bit about yourselves - who are Super Silly, and what were you doing before making music together?
Super Silly comprises of four Irish musicians who have adapted different styles to bring modern genres together. So just four messers who love playing good music. We all come from different backgrounds.
It’s pretty cool knowing these guys cause it was church that brought us together but just the love of playing music that stuck us together as a band.
Who did you take inspiration from?
Inspiration is all around us. Our musical taste as individuals is similar. For example we all love Anderson Paak and his music resonates so well with. That’s an example out of a good few.
Why the name ‘Super Silly’? What do you stand for?
It was the perfect balance of fun and chill for us. The name’s been with us since the day we sat down to go forward with the band which was three years ago now. Super Silly helps us break down barriers especially in age groups. To us it would be a positive movement. Don’t forget to be yourself and amazing.
How would you describe your musical style?
Super Silly style is live, lit and a whole different vibe or wave. It’s hard to put a certain name to our style. We love to dip into different genres and styles. It’s fun that way.
If you could collaborate with any living artist, who would you love to work with?
Post Malone, Ty Dolla $, Wretch 32, Hare Squead, a few others…
Your new single ‘Hate Dah’. When did you write it and where did you record it?
We actually wrote this over the summer of 2018 and the idea had been sitting with us since late 2017. We ended up recording with the an amazing Rían Trench in Bray and then our adventures took us to Tallaght were we recorded vocals with Tunde Esho. Shout out to Shortcuts whose work gave us an amazing finished piece of art.
How does ‘Hate Dah’ build on your style?
It’s a nice set up for the future of music for us as a band and maybe Ireland. We believe it solidifies the individuals inputs into their craft and dedication to music in Ireland and soon the world, fingers crossed. It’s also pretty cool the play live. ‘Hate Dah’ is a gem and a relatable song.
What are your hopes for ‘Hate Dah’?
It’s good music and we wanna be heard. So we hope it’s heard and taken to places on a worldwide ting.
‘Hate Dah’ is taken from your debut EP out in the summer through Believe Digital’s urban imprint A4WRD. Can you tell us any more about the EP?
Well we can’t reveal too much right but do expect Super Silly vibes and wave of great Irish music. We’ll back these up with some cool visuals and get you guys engaged more with the journey as time flows too.
What are your other plans for 2019, can we catch you on tour?
We’ve got some great announcements coming your way but for now we’re working hard on our music and focusing on giving our best. 2019 is a great year already.
Finally, if you could go back in time and give yourselves one piece of advice, when would it be and what would you say?
28th June 2018 - aim better with the frisbee.
