Maybe it’s all the sleepless nights. With album titles like “Things to Keep You Up At Night,” and lyrics about staying awake for days, Superdestoyer might be the first Ambien Rock band. Their world is the insomniac’s haze, a place peopled by expertly crafted simulations, chill cult leaders, and the sudden certainty of death. Then, a reverby guitar part.
If that sounds a little disorienting, good. Sometimes to really see the world you gotta look at it with both eyes bleary. At least, that’s how Superdestroyer sees it.
