JAMES SUPERCAVE’S SINGLE ‘BETTER STRANGE’ OUT TODAY
SONG IS TITLE TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM
BAND TO HEADLINE THE ECHO ON NOVEMBER 11TH
James Supercave announces that their single, “Better Strange” is out today. The single is the title track off James Supercave’s much anticipated debut album to be released early next year via Fairfax Recordings. KCRW’s Jason Bentley named James Supercave, “One of 5 LA musicians to watch.”
If singles are first impressions, “Better Strange” is a sweat-drenched handshake on a warehouse dance floor. The track cuts the familiar slam and glam of psych-pop with the odd details that continually throw James Supercave into the uncanny valley of the pop genre: the lurching groove of the bass, the relentless loop of the synth, the shape-shifting timbre of the vocal. “You’re so much better strange. You’re so much better when you make mistakes with me,” urges Supercave in a fit against normalcy. “Better Strange” dare the listener to commit to the mistakes they’ve always wanted to make.

Opaque in an age of Internet transparency, James Supercave‘s approach to pop stardom is a bit less visible and a little more strange.
Beyond the fragmentary web presence, the pixel personality, the blogger hearsay-to know James Supercave is to listen to the music. Supercave assumes the pop idiom, filling its dimensions (drums, synth, guitar, bass, vocals) while continually charting its fringes. The result: modern eccentricities thrown Pollock-like against psych pop-a sound that is cerebral in lyric and muscular in command of beat and groove.
Whether in winking jabs at corporations, or in frustration anthems angled at the internet native, James Supercave offers an uncompromising mirror to life’s edges: the smooth, the rough-hewn, the odd-angled. James Supercave, the pixelated face of many, offers urgency to preserve the human in it all.
After sharing stages with Future Islands, Warpaint, Chet Faker, Gardens & Villa and Jungle, James Supercave partnered with Fairfax Recordings for their debut LP, Better Strange, set to release in February 2016.
