LABELS AND/OR INFLUENCES

Superelvis' music is hard to describe. Attention is first called by the band's reinterpretation of well-known tunes, either inserting more or less recognizable excerpts in their own compositions or simply reinventing the songs (just like they have done with the band's name). Nevertheless, this is just a part of their strictly personal and unconventional approach to music, which, lacking of a better definition, can be described as RESISTANCE EMOTIONAL MUSIC.
