30 seconds interview: Superfood

Superfood

Forget your goji berries or pomegranate juice, Brummie outfit Superfood have all the vitamins you need exploding through their technicolour musical exuberance.

Frontman Dom Ganderton cut his teeth producing early demos from the likes of Peace and Swim Deep before deciding to enter the fray with his own creations.

After the well received debut album, Don’t Say That, the group have spent the last few years boiling up their sound, operating without any label or any outside backing, instead keeping it as DIY and as energised as possible.

The result will be their forthcoming second LP with the BBC Radio 1 played I Can’t See being the first taste. It sounds as nonchalant and as a free as any mid twenty-something should and promises big things for their autumnal tour.

Ahead of those dates, you can catch them at The Great Escape tonight (19 May) at The East Wing. We spent 30 seconds with Dom ahead of their show to find out what keeps them inspired and how Birmingham legends Wizard were their first gig…

Ghetto Superstar – Pras feauturing Mya & Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

What’s the first gig you went to?

What’s the first instrument you ever got hold of?
