Supersonics – 69 automobile

I can’t believe Supersonics are a Dutch band. But yes they are, and they have that awesome pure Americana sound. After their first album: “Close to you” (2017), they now released their second album “69 Autombile” (2019) by El Toro records.

Right from the start the bandmembers agreed that originality and self penned songs are the basis of Supersonics. Although inspired by all the greats: Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Billy Joel, Brad Paisley, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Beatles, The Byrds, Waylon Jennings, to name a few, Pascal (frontman and songwriter) didn’t feel any boundary’s in writing songs in a specific style (Insane Asylum). Lyrics, melody’s and storytelling that’s what it’s all about.

I think they succeeded in creating their own Supersonic Americana sound, making you feel taking a coast to coast road trip through the States, listening to this 69 automobile album and thinking about love, life, wins and losses, in a rockabilly way “Whistle into the wind”, a country tune “Careful what you wish for”, a rhythm and blues feel or just plain rock and roll “Take your ball and go home”. And have a picknick with the sweet sound of “Fall from grace”, great guitar riffs.

For the Hammond fans, some songs have that thick full body Hammond sound, played by Boudewijs Snijders.

This album is available on cd, LP and all digital streaming services.
