Help the Brooklyn-based indie pop sensation SUPERCUTE! record their first album with Kate Nash!

We are SUPERCUTE! a teen indie pop band from Brooklyn, featuring Rachel Trachtenburg (of the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players). We released our demo EP, Supercute!, in 2010, and subsequently toured internationally supporting English singer-songwriter Kate Nash. We're ready to record our first full album, with Kate producing, but we need help covering the costs.

We need to raise money to record the album and to shoot a video for our first single, DUMB DUMBS. The video will feature cameos by a number of super-secret special guests (who we'll be revealing soon! Backers will hear about them first!).

Thank you so much for your help! We're incredibly excited to be able to do all this, and so grateful for your support!

ABOUT THE ALBUM:

We're writing and recording ten original tracks (and a few exciting covers!) for our psychedelic-indie-acoustic-pop opus, which we haven't titled yet. The album is being recorded and produced by Kate Nash. The money raised here will help us get to England, where Kate can take care of the rest!

ABOUT THE VIDEO:

We're making a video for our anti-drug/pro-candy anthem DUMB DUMBS. An homage to the psychedelic drug-scare films of the 1940’s, the video follows our escapades as we're invited to an crazy underground party; a colorful, decedent Paradise Lost where drugs and lascivious acts are replaced by mountains of candy and swarms of offbeat characters. Equal parts Reefer Madness and Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, what starts as a wonderful dream quickly becomes a nightmare... We can't tell you what happens next, but we can tell you that it's going to be CRAZY.

The video is being produced by Greth Productions and Saint Eliot and Company. Each is donating their time and resources, so all money raised here is going towards additional equipment, costumes and props, and a serious candy budget.
