Released just a week ago, “Nice.” is the second album from acoustic pair Super Guitar Bros.
This is unbelievably chilled. Steven Poissant and Sam Griffin are the Super Guitar Bros and met back in 2007 at a local coffee shop. They’ve played together ever since and three years on from their eponymous debut, they’re back with “Nice.” As you can tell from their name, they play acoustic covers of classic video game themes.
On paper, it all seems a bit twee and quirky but the album is neither of those things. My particular favourite is their rendition of the iconic Super Mario World Athletic theme, including the sped-up “running out of time” version at the end.
