Superlynx exceeds genres with their distinct sound and melts heavy psychedelic rock, doom, meditative atmospheres and droning riffs together. In 2023 Superlynx will celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band with releasing new music, a new additional live member and returning to the stage.
Indeed, the new album »4 10« is written and played by the original trio Pia, Ole and Daniel as usual, but since the recording the band has expanded by including additional guitarist Espen Krøll. He will join the band on stage from now on for an even fuller live sound.
“We are super happy to have Espen in the band. He is a lovely person and guitarist and fits right in. We really look forward to hitting the stage with him.” the band says.

When Superlynx is asked about musical influences the answer is something like “the sum of all the different music we all listen to and are inspired by, be it doom, drone, psych, shoegaze, desert rock, grunge, metal, old blues, jazz, 60s/70s rock”.
The members have a lot of music in common but also different influences. It is all a part of them, and something that naturally affects their own style of playing. Superlynx follows no rules except what sounds and feels right, and lets the music lead their way.
“Jamming has always been important to us in addition to songwriting.” Superlynx says. “This time all the music on the album was created through jamming sessions where the music that came out lead the way and turned into these songs. The entire album was recorded in the rehearsal space where we started out a decade ago, by our drummer Ole Teigen / Crowtown Recordings. The focus on »4 10« is imagination, dreams, connection and an open view. Today we further explore fuzzed out heavy psych, improvisation and the depths of dreams and surrealism.”
Did you know? The name Superlynx is inspired by the big, beautiful, shy and rare, yet hunted cat living in northern areas – the Lynx. The band wanted to have a link to nature and the animal realm in their name, and it represents both a natural force, and the massive, heavy and rough but also fragile in their music. The Lynx also has its name from lux – meaning light – because of its super luminous eyes, and light is a constant focus for Superlynx even in their darker music.
»4 10« is released on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats on September 29th, 2023. Order here: argonautarecords.com/shop
