  • Description

    With its deceptive pop structures and endless layers of sound, Superfluidity is a top-drawer collection of melody driven electronic music.

    Roy Berry and his musical partner Rick Steff - names you may know from their job as drummer and piano player, respectively, for alt-country band Lucero - went from friends who collaborated on music in their spare time to very officially Rick & Roy in 2013, after their work on a film score at Music+Arts Studio in Memphis led to an opportunity to make a full-length record.

    With various bands and partnerships – Synthohol, Gelatinous Cube, Overjoid – Roy has recorded and released experimental music as long as he's been in more traditional bands – like Lucero with Rick. As they got to know each other on the road, that's where their conversations would often shift: odd new schools of thought about synths and sounds, circuit bending, improvisation and experimentation. They'd sit in the back of the tour bus, playing music for each other, searching the internet for odd instruments.
    They inevitably started collecting gear and recording their own music.
    Superfluidity is as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. Do you hear the forest, or do you hear the trees? Either way is right.
