If Superbird were a drink, they would be a cosmopolitan. Well-mixed. Flavorful. Irreverent vibe. And a little goes a long, long way, while a lot will put your right on the floor.

This three-man band, Joe Finnigan (vocals/guitar), Alex Ash (percussion) and Freddy Sidero (bass) comes on with a pure rocker bluster rarely spotted these days. With their white pants, sequined jackets, flowing locks and beards, and paisley magnificence, these guys have the costumes to match that rare swagger.

“Kiss Chasing Stars” explodes like a flamboyant firecracker. The boys of Superbird do their synchronicity thing while dancing with bowling balls. All the while keeping the music rolling. The lyrics  solidify their uniqueness:

“Stella moon the ballroom, love dancing baller/Brighter than lights on Broadway /Golden sands, foreign lands, /I’ll take you away day into night, chasing stars on through to daylight”

The S Birds themselves describe the track and video as below:

A peacock-inspired music phenomena, hosted by Joe, Alex & Freddy; a colourful pop-funk n’ roll power package, freshly delivered from the stork of love…”

I couldn’t have said it better.

And in honor of Superbird and this fine, refreshing track, here is the recipe for a perfect Cosmo:
