Mid-way through March, Jesse Sewell (of Porsches) and South Australian producer Tigerilla (AKA Matthew Khabbaz) graduated from good mates to full-blown collaborators thanks to their brand spankin’ new project SUPER CRUEL. Linking up with the nation’s indie folk darling Lisa Mitchell, their debut effort “November” is an absorbing synthesis of Lisa’s wispy melodies and the punchy future-bass-flavoured production that Sewell and Khabbaz have become known and loved for.
Building further on the incredible success of “November”, SUPER CRUEL have now shared a beautiful official video directed by Rory Pippan and produced by the revered team at Young Black Youth. Washed with a distinct early noughties vibe – including classic Nokia bricks (how could anyone forget playing Snake on one of those bad boys?), vintage TVs and old school furniture – Sewell says the clip is a “a nostalgic take on adolescence and the juxtaposition between love in a relationship and lust for a moment.”
“The video was centred around the Crux of the song “we used to ride and die together” Sewell explains. “It’s a tribute to a strong feeling that you may have once had at the start of a relationship which has now burned out. We think it’s important to explore real themes that people can relate to.”
If you’re loving what you’re hearing and seeing, you can catch SUPER CRUEL at Splendour In The Grass and/or Groovin The Moo for some of their first ever live appearances.
