London-based pop force RLY have shared new single ‘Superpower’.
The group made their debut earlier this year, becoming instant online favourites with their army of digital fans. True pop suss lies behind their rise, with RLY re-asserting their worth on their latest unstoppable single.
Out now, ‘Superpower’ is a glossy yet affecting slice of pop songwriting, affording each member – Jess, Kelli, Kyra, Halle, and Virginia – space to express themselves.
Beautifully understated, ‘Superpower’ isn’t afraid to face down dark times in their lives, continually looking towards optimism. In their own words, ‘Superpower’ is “a song about making it through something that almost breaks you. It shines a light on how strong we become from pushing on through these moments of darkness, and how exhilarating it can be to start feeling like yourself again.”
RLY – it stands for ‘Real Like You’ – are a unified front, while also providing space for each member to express themselves. ‘Superpower’ is a case in point – the inspiration came from Jess, who has been through some tough times, and the band convened to provide her with the support she needed.
Very much a group effort, it’s marked by their sustained positivity. Jess adds: “When we wrote this song I was just starting to overcome years of battling with some mental health issues that completely debilitated my life. Writing this with Kyra empowered me. I saw what I had gained from it all, and I hope other people see their own strength when they hear it.”
