This is Superhero's debut single and is an understated two minutes forty one seconds of beefy yet catchy rock. It takes awhile to sink in but it's got it all… hooky melody, production by Alan Branch and it sounds like a cross between a more melodic Radiohead and a much less whiney Muse. I said it was understated, but somehow it also is a kick in the teeth. Spacerock-electronica b-side "Fragile" is quite another story. It's an intense epic with haunting vocals and trademark fizzing drums and bass. Stirring stuff. It seems Superhero are a band with the potential to break into the mainstream.
