Neosupervital (aka Tim O’Donovan) is excited to announce new music.
‘Back to What’ (2023 Mix) is the latest Neosupervital single, intended as a standalone release. Speaking of the song, Tim O’Donovan explains “this was recorded a while back, it’s a 3:11 pop tune about getting back to the simpler things like walking, riding on a train, sitting on a step, and other important things of that nature”.
Tim has released two Neosupervital albums to date – ‘Neosupervital’ (2006) and ‘Battery Power’ (2010). The third album, aptly titled ‘3’, arrives later this year. It features all the hallmark Neosupervital synths, beats, lyrics and harmonies, whilst adding new spacious textures, wonky guitars and some more laid back rhythms.
As well as fronting Neosupervital, Tim has drummed for Irish bands Bell X1, Join Me In The Pines and Keeley, and was one half of electro-pop duo Buffalo Woman.
He has played various Irish festivals including Drop Everything, Electric Picnic, Body and Soul, Indiependence, All Together Now, Forbidden Fruit, Kaleidoscope and Vantastival. Neosupervital has also opened for acts such as Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Thomas Dolby, Divine Comedy, ABC, St. Germain, Peter Bjorn and John, Hercules and Love Affair, Jaga Jazzist, Bob Log III, Moldy Peaches, Tenacious D and has toured the UK and Europe as special guest of The Human League.
Reviews of previous Neosupervital releases:
“Has a contemporary dance floor suss…infectious, high-gloss glitter-pop…is there anybody out there who knows their way around a good synth pop tune better than Tim O’Donovan?”
“…leaving you hungry for more after the mirrorball stops spinning…fusing classic disco melodies with electronic laptop wizardry.”
“Often augmenting his synth-laden sound with fuzzy guitar, O’Donovan’s ear for a cracking melody is as sharp as ever. With his talent for amusing lyricism also in evidence, there’s more than enough here to keep the faithful happy.”
