Biography

Superpowerless is 20 year old electro artist Oliver Hindle from
Leeds (England). In Oliver’s own words, Superpowerless is ‘Game Boy-fueled adventure-core’ but is probably easier to describe as video-game influenced electro-pop with pop punk guitar.

He started out playing drums for a number of small high school pop-punk bands, which never got to gigging stage. He then learned guitar and started writing solo songs while playing in bands with friends. Oliver was then introduced to electronic music which would influence his musical direction. “After hearing the Postal Service, I started listening to electronic bands like Depeche Mode, Adult, and Motion City Soundtrack. I decided it was something I wanted to have a go at, so I bought a synth off eBay and started putting some songs together.”

After some minor live success and a mention in NME with electronic/rock band ‘Spacebars.Broken’ (“they called us ‘a ferocious Shitdisco’, which hopefully was referring to the band Shitdisco and not a particularly bad disco”), Oliver started writing his own songs using custom software for the Game Boy under the name of Superpowerless.

A year later and with a growing internet following, Superpowerless entered the live scene, with an ever-changing line up of friends. “I currently gig with live band members Steve Brunton and Michael Slevin - I don’t think it’ll be changing much anytime soon though! My songs are electronic but I’ve always written them from a sort of pop punk/rock background so the layout and the lyrics meant that we could perform as a rock band with other bands rather than at electronic nights”.
