You could be forgiven for not anticipating Super Tsar.
In 2019, an atmospheric drummer from Baltimore (Ryan Sterner), an acoustic loop-master singer-songwriter from Geneva (Toby May) and a folk-rocker from Melbourne (Greg Arnold) got together for a session.
Nobody had a plan, they just plugged in and got started.
Two hours later they had something; a spontaneous power pop trio and they were just as surprised as anybody.
With Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet and The Beatles as guiding stars they have nearly completed a debut album, AND they have even managed to smash out a couple of gigs between intercontinental lockdowns.
It's all loud and proudly trashy but ultimately, it's the melodies that win the day.
