Molly Karloff Supernaturalation ep 6-3-2020

Track by Track

Supernaturalation (4:58)
This was written using a baritone guitar, with the main riff being one that just sprang into my head one morning, which is a pretty regular occurrence. Right from the opening riff, the addictive hook sets the tone for this song, and everything centres around hooks in this band. The foot stomping groove continues before launching into an earworm of a chorus that takes a dig at hypocritical attitudes to drug addiction in society.

She Said (4:27)
The swirling guitars that open this song belie the infectious hit that lies ahead, even as the melodic verse kicks in. I originally wrote the opening riff without the wah, which was added by mistake one day in rehearsal. It sounded cool, so we kept it that way, and everything else evolved from there. As the chorus kicks in, soaring vocals hit with a punch that will leave you humming the tune all day. Hard rock catchiness is the name of the game that echoes the message of perseverance in the lyrics.

Do You Wanna? (3:43)
This tune was never meant to have the punky overtones that it currently has. The main riff arrived, like most songs, in the shower one morning, and after trying various things during the writing process, that punk thing in the verse was the best fit. If it fits, then wear it! Don’t conform, ignore the rules, be what you want to be. The lyrics mirror the punk overtones of the opening guitars, a song that has familiar sound with a twist that mixes punk rock sensibilities with a unique hard rock sound that always proves to be a big crowd pleaser. Can punk be mixed with big grooves and catchy choruses? The answer is yes.

Do It Again (4:10)
The catchy joy ride continues with driving rhythms right from the outset of this tune. There’s plenty of melody and groove before you’re hit with another contagious chorus laid over the pumping hooks of the guitars. Having no regrets seems an appropriate subject for this song to tackle, which continues its driving assault. There’s only a small break away for the appropriately short and frenetic solo before launching the listener back into the crescendo that builds before the final chorus.

The Other Side (4:06)
It starts with a catchy, foot-tapping riff. The funk-blues groove of the opening riff doesn’t disappoint as it pulls you in to a song about breaking taboos. There are no airs and graces. It’s just a straight, ‘four to the floor’ straight up hard rock tune for rocking out or dancing to.
