It's been three years since Megan Vice's critically acclaimed "Spread the News" album, but at long last, the groove-tastic diva is back! Her new album, Super Delicious," releases this Friday and Vice will premiere some of the new tracks on Thursday, June 13 at 8pm at Rise Bar.
Megan Vice’s irreverent, tongue-in-cheek lyrical style and musical prowess are in full effect on Super Delicious. The EP combines empowering messages with undeniable grooves.
The EP begins with the glittering, sun-kissed title track. Produced by Kyle Kelso, Megan and indie pop priestess Catey Shaw developed the original idea for the song after hearing the fun, flirty instrumental from Shaw's producer/songwriter husband, Jay Levine. “Catey and I wrote a silly love song about junk food and then I worked with Kyle to give it a more grittier kick,” Megan explains.
Following "Super Delicious" is “Nobody Freakin’”, a girl power funk jam; then “Hold Up (Be My Lady)”, a sultry R&B number; and “Dressed to Kill”, an energetic, feel-good anthem in the vein of super slick Morris Day from Purple Rain.
Then there’s “2 Good 4 Me,” a song Vice admits is different from any song she’s done before. The sly mid tempo disco-laced stomper draws inspiration from a dark period in her life. "I wrote it last year during a severe decline in my mental health when I was at the pinnacle of crippling anxiety and depression,” she explains. “I found myself dating a man who I convinced myself was too good for me. But let's be clear, your girl was just mentally ill and unmedicated and I swear mental illness will have you devoted to a lying ass 3 believing he's a 10. Shortly after this song was written I finally decided to give medication a try and honestly, it was the best decision I ever made. Moral of the story is - ain't no man too good for me but I'm grateful for the inspiration!”
Vice credits Kyle Kelso (Parachute, Parson James, R3HAB, 3LAU, Spencer Ludwig, Autograf, Penguin Prison) for the sonic cohesiveness throughout the Super Delicious EP. “We speak each other’s musical love language. I’ve learned so much from Kyle and feel stronger in my craft from my time spent collaborating with him. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the Super Delicious EP is everything I hoped it would be and more.”
