Overachievers they may be, but if “A Better Life” is any indication, here’s hoping this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship for Supersmall.
Elmore Magazine had the exclusive on our track “A Better Life” from our upcoming album Silent Moon. Album release date has been set for January 22nd, 2016.

“There was some anxiety due to writer’s block, not being able to finish a song or three, and a healthy dose of self-doubt here and there.”
We sat down with RJ from Vents Magazine for an interview. You can read it by clicking HERE.
Kind words from AudioFuzz about our single Riot. Click HERE to read the article.
“Supersmall is composed of singer-songwriter, Colin Dempsey, and drummer, Daniela Schiller. Dempsey is an Irish writer and storyteller based in New York. He has performed his unique blend of indie-rock music in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and most recently, the US. Schiller is a musician, storyteller and Neuroscientist, who leads the Schiller Lab of Affective Neuroscience at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Together, they make beautiful dreamy pop music in the same vein as The Mountain Goats and a more straight-forward version of Neutral Milk Hotel with stripped down production. There is nothing at all small about Supersmall, they are a large sounding folk/pop group. Beautiful vocals, beautiful arrangements.” – AudioFuzz
We done it! With Ross Otto joining us on bass, we played our new album along with some old tunes to a full house at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3. We worked really hard on this record and pushed ourselves a little out of our comfort zone to achieve something very different from the first that we are utterly proud of. We gave ourselves two years to do it, and we finished pretty close to the finish line. You need to do this when you have other commitments (day jobs, babies, other band commitments, lives in general). I remember writing the last two lines to A Better Life in my car in the studio car lot the day we recorded it. Tom, our producer jokes about how highly strung I was during some of the recording. I was. Two songs, Siren and Riot were finished in the studio while Take A Day Off was plucked from a solo record I was working on at a different studio. Anyway, now it’s finished. Although we physically gave away the album to everyone who attended, the digital release will be sometime in the new year. Thanks again to all who came out to see our show, as we begin promoting this one we have already begun writing the next. And so the cycle continues, the musical adventures continue…
