Independent alt-rock band Superbloom debuted its latest single and video this week.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Muzzle‘ Friday, along with its companion video. The song and its video are the third from the band’s forthcoming album, Pollen, which is scheduled for release June 1. A vinyl release is scheduled for June 14.
The debut of ‘Muzzle’ and its video follow the debut of the album’s existing singles, ‘Whatever‘ and ‘Mary on a Chain.’ The musical arrangement featured in ‘Muzzle’ is a stark contrast to that of those featured in its predecessors. Where ‘Whatever’ and ‘Mary on a Chain’ boast a more Nirvana-esque grunge sound and style in their arrangements, ‘Muzzle’ presents more of a shoegaze type sound and stylistic approach.
Front man Dave Hoon said in a prepared statement, the song’s lyrical theme is a social commentary of sorts.
“The lyrics for Muzzle were written at the end of summer I think of 2020 when everything was hyper crazy,” he said. “And I’d always have the news on or be on Twitter or Reddit. So that was the environment Muzzle was written in. I think the song is about having something to say but choosing not to — for better or for worse.
The video for ‘Muzzle’ is somewhat unrelated to the song’s lyrical theme, considering the noted topic and the footage featured in the video.
Hoon also discussed the video.
The kids in the video are doing the same s*** we all did growing up — before we started paying attention to what’s going on around us,” he said. “And the video is found footage developed by this guy on youtube — so there’s no sound and it’s unedited. I thought that was a cool thing for this song.”
