The Holydrug Couple - Hyper Super Mega
It was 10 years ago, in a house on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile, that Ives Sepúlveda Minho and Manuel Parra started playing music together, and The Holydrug Couple was effectively born. A decade later, they’ve made Hyper Super Mega, an album that represents the culmination of everything they’ve learned in their years as a band. Amidst eleven tracks of perfectly-formed, heady psych-pop, Hyper Super Mega speaks of immediacy, internet and social media, consumption, love and a comfortable despair at the state of the planet. Sonically, if Hyper Super Mega feels, in places, like a classic pop record, that’s because Sepúlveda and Parra spent much of the recording process thinking, too, about the classic pop records of the ’60s and ’70s.
