Linnea's Garden - "Superspreader"

The first two singles from Linnea's Garden were decidedly glammed up dance friendly rock numbers. For the third the band has decided to mix things up quite a bit. Sure, "Superspreader" is glammed up and dance friendly, but the rock side of things is turned way up past eleven. Think if a band like Soundgarden or Tad decided to go all out with a Bowie influence. 

Considering the subject matter, "Superspreader" is strangely fun. Linnea Herzog explains the song: "I'd describe it as the ballad of a modern day Typhoid Mary heartbreaker. The inspiration for the lyrics came early in the coronavirus pandemic, when there was a lot of confusion, shifting rules, and dubious science, particularly surrounding the issue of mask wearing... that pervasive sense that there's no escaping the road to ruin."

You can listen to "Superspreader" below. You can get your copy over at Bandcamp. For more on Linnea's Garden, check out the band's website.
