Los Angeles alt-rock outfit SLUGS have carved out a reputation for creating melodic summery songs. Their debut EP Cool World had this in spades because the guitar and vocal hooks were refreshing and exciting. The band have received coverage from the likes of Live Nation and Earmilk, and have just dropped their brand new song ‘Super Sane.’
The track opens with the moving lyrics: “It’s been a weird year / One was born and one died / I got reasons to be happy and I got reasons to cry.” This sums up how challenging 2020 was, while the melancholic chords provide a dreamy backdrop, putting the listener in a blissful state. The song has an air of nostalgia because the protagonist goes over past memories. However, the resilient message in the chorus makes you feel positive: “I’m super sane / I feel fine.”
‘Super Sane’ is about feeling lost during lockdown, and it takes you on a relaxing journey in under four minutes. It has very relatable lyrics, which shows why they are heading for big things in the future.
