When Superfood released their debut album 'Don't Say That', they became the surprise hit discovery of 2014. Their incredible talent for writing unique and engaging indie-rock brought cult attention to the outfit, but a lot has changed since then. With a stripped back line-up and a new, more commercial sound, the band's second album 'Bambino' continues the legacy of great music they seem to be able to make so easily.
While their debut was more focused on their guitar-based direction, with 'Bambino', the distortion pedal has been switched off as they opt for a more laid-back atmosphere, taking inspiration from soul, trip-hop and reggae backgrounds. It may be a little jarring for those that loved their first full-length, but this new release still manages to impress with almost every track. Creating an uplifting vibe that you just have to listen to again and again.
Their first album definitely didn't get the attention it deserved, but ignore this at your own peril. They have proven that they are more than capable of creating great music, and even with a complete restart of their sound, they continue to leave us in awe.
