Supergroup Sauna Release New Track

Super groups have been a long-standing tradition in the music industry.  Most times it’s an economical decision. Band member from famous band A and band member from famous band B join forces, come up with a terrible name and proceed to make it rain money on very little effort (I’m looking at you, Audioslave). Sometimes a group of established veterans just want to hang out with their other talented friends and write songs that are about cars but are actually about doing it (Hi, Traveling Wilburys!). Other times a group of friends, who also happen to be talented musicians, get together to do something fun and exciting. Case in point, Sauna. Sauna is the new project from Zach Bines (Weaves), Braeden Craig (Greys), and Michael le Riche (Fake Palms) and it sure is a lot of fun. Their debut single “Over” is a dance floor packing super jam. Buoyed by an immensely humpable bassline and some frenetic guitar stabbing, “Over” is the type of track that you will want to play over and over again. Made up with as much talent and taste as they have it shouldn’t be any surprise that Sauna break the tradition of having a lackluster name, skeptical origins and sexy metaphors, although I’ll take that last one any day, and prove that to be an actual super group, the most important thing is to have members that are truly super.
