After the shock announcement of two sold out shows in June as their last and a period of mystery and speculation, six piece hip-hop group POW! Negro have announced their transition into SUPEREGO with the release of their latest single ‘I Am The Judge’.
“Over the past two and a half years as Pow, we’ve learnt and subsequently grown more than we ever thought we could have. It has taken us a long time to recognise what we really wanted to be and stand for as a group, and we’re still learning. The next steps for the group will be as SUPEREGO. As a culturally and musically diverse group, we wanted a name that was representative and reflective of everyone and feel this new identity encapsulates us as a whole.”
From selling out shows across the country, playing prestigious festivals such as Womadelaide & Woodford to being hand chosen to support acts such as Midnight Oil, Sampa The Great, Remi and others all off the back of their debut EP Jasmine & Licorice, the group will return to more scaled back beats-heavy hip hop production. The first offering ‘I Am The Judge’ features additional production/mixing from POND’s James Ireland who has just collaborated with Kanye West on the track ‘Violent Crimes’ from his latest album ‘ye’.
