EP Review: Superfecta – “Superfecta EP”
London based grunge rockers Superfecta have been on the scene since 2011 and have been honing their craft ever since in sweaty clubs around the capital. While they have released a few tracks via Bandcamp, this their first actual EP
Opening track ‘She’s A Star’ comes out swinging with a groove plethora of riffs that fans of Pearl Jam will lap up with a vengeance. Singer Andy Urwin has a vocal style that teeters on the edge of apeing Eddie Vedder, but he pulls it off with such style that it doesn’t matter. ‘Paradox’ picks up the pace up a little with a Status Quo guitar motif in the verse giving way to a classic rock chorus, before ‘Inside’ shows the softer side of the lads. While not the strongest track on the EP, it shows that the lads aren’t all about the harder side of things, the closing track however shows how bloody good they are at it.
By far the best track and blessed with a manic riff that completely pulls the rug from under your feet, ‘Pendulum’ sees the whole band on fire. Each member plays like their life depends on it and Urwin gives a breathless vocal performance that further proves his versatility. On the strength of this EP Superfecta are definitely ones to watch and with the right songs there should be no stopping them.
