Springtime 04:02
Long lazy days Feline naps in the shade I’ll stay alseep Spring song resounds In the flowers On the ground In swaying trees The humming bees Feel the light is dancing on my skin As we lie in blades of grass Close your eyes To imprint each bit Every moment, every kiss Strange vivid dreams Fade away in a haze I’m not asleep Maze of my mind Playing tricks Lost in time Spring brings to me New melodies Feel the light is dancing on my skin As we lie in blades of grass Close your eyes To imprint each bit Every moment, every kiss Every kiss Long sunlit days Fragrant breeze in the shade Spring brings to me A whole world to see Spring sings to me New melodies And dreams

Lie in the shade of the pink cherry trees And watch all the white clouds vaporize into bunnies Fenced in for safety and peace of mind Meadow Lane Park lives in memories of mine I see now Love is space and love is time measured by the heart We never grew apart On sweet ol’ Meadow Lane Sometimes I linger on my younger days in torn jeans Lived many adventures on Meadow Lane's green Games in the playground defied gravity Life kept us spinning on a merry-go-round I feel now Love is space and love is time measured by the heart We never grow apart Sweet ol’ Meadow Lane

Sometimes I feel like telling you Everything I ought to That’s working my mind Whether you want me to I don’t care because it’s true Better buckle up now girl We’re in for a ride There is some magical spell on me It’s a call straight to your soul Every time you are blue You’ll never be alone no more Here is one to your heart Don’t forget that you are gold All the memories we have gathered A long long time ago Come now don’t you be a stranger You’re still running the show I feel something I can’t define The world has got a new shine Maybe I’ve gone blind? Under a charm or two Maybe I have been voodooed? Under a charm or two Under a charm or two Voodoo I remember the radio station (Still) playing that old tune Vaporized out of oblivion The dark side of the moon The dark side of the moon

We are very proud to be able to announce a new group signed to Elefant Records. LE SUPERHOMARD are a french quintent led by Christophe Vaillant, a musician with a history of mod-styled formations, like the band THE STRAWBERRY SMELL and PONY TAYLOR, and who in 2015 began a solitary project that his brother Olivier later joined and which has continued taking shape to become what it is today (Christophe Vaillant, Julie Big, Benoit Pithon, Laurent Elfassy and Thomas Rivello), named in honor of a scene from the movie “Let’s Not Get Angry” by Georges Lautner. Throughout 2017 and 2018 they released a few EPs for the Japanese label Rallye Records and the British label Megadodo. Their music has been played on the BBC by Gideon Coe, Amy Lamé or Stuart Maconie with some very nice columns in the press. At Elefant, we are excited to give you an advance of the imminent arrival of an LP coming at the beginning of 2019, with this Single that will be the perfect appetizer and introduction to the group.

“Springtime EP” includes two songs from the album and two previously unreleased songs, on a 500-copy numbered-limited-edition pink 7” vinyl. “Springtime”, one of the songs from the album, opens the Single: it’s martial, spacey synth-pop, between Étienne Daho and THE HUMAN LEAGUE, with Julie Big’s precious voice. But don’t be fooled - “Springtime” is a great single that showcases the band’s abilities and their great use of synthesizers, but it is immediately followed by the instrumental “Overflight” that aims for the musical principles that “Meadow Lane Park” (the other song from the album) confirms on the B-side: a pop-funk base with echoes of STEREOLAB, resonances of electronic pop, of synth-pop and soft-pop, orchestral arrangements with a lounge spirit, with the level of inspiration of AIR, THE GENTLE PEOPLE, GIORGIO TUMA, THE HIGH LLAMAS, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Esquivel, KOMEDA, Barbara Moore, Jean-Jacques Perrey, MODULAR and SAINT ETIENNE. The formula is evocative, elegant, with contained emotions and psychedelia... And if we were talking about STEREOLAB, certainly Laetitia Sadier would have loved to have written a song as fantastic as “Under A Charm”, the other previously unreleased song included on this advance Single: analog buffers, between spacey melodies that evoke BROADCAST and delicious strings from a classicist spirit. It’s a winning combination; unheard of but infallible.

It’s an advance that gives us a heads up about a group with something marvelous to offer, something that is very uncommon in the regular scene, but that alternates melodic ability with powerful arrangements, lysergic evocation with stellar journeys. Can anyone resist an offer like that?
