The Bronx Post Latest Ripper, “Superbloom”
Fun fact: The Bronx frontman Matt Caughthran was one of my first-ever interviews for MetalSucks. We met in a conference room at the Manhattan offices of his publicist at the time, I placed a mini tape recorded between us on the table and let it roll. I was almost certainly awkward as hell and obviously green and inexperienced, but he was a good sport about it. Matt, if you’re reading this, thanks so much, dude!
Following “White Shadow” in March, The Bronx have now unveiled “Superbloom,” the second single from their forthcoming album, Bronx VI. Caughthran explains of this one:
“’Superbloom’ is a sonic search for deeper meaning. Musically, the song originated from our bass player Brad Magers, his first official offering on a Bronx Record. The chorus was co-written with [guitarist] Joby Ford, so there is a very unique push/pull that takes place for the first time in Bronx history. Lyrically, the song is about a day I spent lost in the California wildflowers with an old friend. Reflecting on the past in a somewhat desperate attempt to make sense of the present. A very inspired song and one of my favorites on the record.”
Listen to “Superbloom” below. Bronx VI will come out on August 27 via Cooking Vinyl; pre-order here.
