In the present times of lockdown and self-isolation there’s no better time to ponder our goals and what we want from life. Super Marine’s third single, The Other Side carries a vibe of self-analysis as well as our relationships with others.
The Other Side was written when front-man Rhys Davis learned of the passing of 12-year-old Cole Roper who was tragically killed in a hit-and-run during 2019. Cole once said to Rhys during work experience at a local school; ‘You look like a rock-star. What are you doing here?’, to which Rhys had no reply. This song is dedicated to Cole and keeping his memory alive
As with their first two singles, the track was recorded and produced by notable producer Richard Jackson whose previous work includes The Automatic, 60 Ft Dolls, Super Furry Animals and Pretty Vicious.
Andy Howells of Entertainment South Wales describes the single as
“Uplifting, energetic and full of instrumental and vocal drive, The Other Side is not only set to put Super Marine on everybody’s new music playlists during these dark days, but to further the bands stronghold as one of the most exciting acts to come out of South Wales in several years.”
Super Marine have deservedly been nominated for ‘Best Group’ at the 2020 Cardiff Music awards and were due to head out on their first UK tour later this Spring. These have now been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Gigs including London, Cardiff, Bristol and Swansea will now be rescheduled for late in the year.
In the meantime, The Other Side will be released on April 10, 2020 and fans can vote for the band as Best Group at the 2020 Cardiff Music award here.
