about

Super is indeed a super suffix for a band .. think of Supergrass and the Furry Animals in particular, acts whose names match the quality of their output. To this ever-expanding list add Superturtle from Auckland, Aotearoa, who have followed up 2010′s About the Sun with Beat Manifesto on Sarangbang records.

Porky wrote back then that he was “knocked to the floor when a burst of guitars hit me. About The Sun lasts an ideal 33 minutes and the longest track is 3:04, the sound of perfect pop songs.”

But Beat Manifesto is more post-punk, less power-pop, although the songs fail to extend beyond an orderly timeframe of up to three and a half minutes. The opener Down Down Down reminds me a little of The Cure with its grim, lost in a forest at nightime, bass but the rest is a curious mixture of late 80s B-52s and Flying Nun. Cause Ya Said So is gloriously direct, Happy Pills has a delicious and bewitching chorus, and there’s no shortage of dreamy hooks and riffs on Lost in the Herd Again.
