This funk-rockband from Amsterdam draw inspiration from bands such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Maroon 5, The Foo Fighters and The Beatles.
All this inspiration has resulted in the creation of a brand new EP. Ümit Kiliç (vocals / guitar), Tom Ruys (bass) and Rutger Genser (drums) are going places. Their music mixes tight funky rhythms with catchy pop and rock melodies, and old blues, soul, reggae and jazz vibes to make it an eclectic musical melting pot accessible for a very broad audience.
SuperBubble is an ever expanding funk collective from Salt Lake City, Utah. Driving a fat beat, a solid groove, and a great sense of jam, they turn a room into an unapologetically funky dance party. Formed in 2016, they have been accruing band members, working their way around the state, and becoming a quick local favorite. In May, 2017 SuperBubble released their first self titled EP amongst great reviews. S.L.U.G magazine wrote, “SuperBubble are one of the biggest surprises I have encountered this year, with one of the most solid debuts I’ve heard out of the Salt Lake scene. This album is a fleshed funk fest of jam, jive and jazz, with a couple of the strongest instrumental tracks I’ve heard for years.”
