Super Massive is the creative partnership of singer/songwriter Malina Hamilton-Smith and funky drummer/composer Glenn Abbott, who is currently firing up dancefloors all over the Gold Coast with 70s tribute band Disco Disciples, while perhaps better known as Bryan Ferrysexual—the drummer who powered much-loved, platinum-selling band Machine Gun Fellatio.

Glenn and Malina formed Super Massive when they discovered a shared love of vintage 70’s funk and disco, and a common vision of creating a true 50/50 blend of electronic dance music and rock.

Together the duo make intense, exhilarating and sexy synth-laced alternative rock/pop music, driven by funky dance grooves and delivered with the lustiness of a rock band. Their sound is a blend of AC/DC or Led Zeppelin and Daft Punk or Basement Jaxx, with a good dash of the funkiness of Chic and the Brothers Johnson. The band has drawn comparisons to Regurgitator, The Presets, Garbage, Muse, Divinyls, Blondie and Depeche Mode.

Their songs are catchy, their rhythm section irresistibly dance-inducing, their live show is visceral, exhilarating, dramatic and utterly slamming, and their sound is completely their own.

"A provocative sound that's more infectious than the plague." - The Music Network

Live, the duo are joined by guitarist Tyr Kovacic, (aka the Disco Jesus from Disco Disciples) who brings the blistering funk and rock guitar that makes up a big part of their unique dance rock sound.

The band has spent six years touring Australia and Asia. They’ve played numerous east coast tours and performed alongside a diverse range of artists including Def FX, Machine Gun Fellatio, Bertie Blackman, The Jezabels, Megan Washington, Michelle Xen, Bluejuice, Dappled Cities, Deborah Conway and King Tide. They’ve performed mainstage at festivals including Australia Day in the Rocks, Surry Hills Festival, Sea Festival Vietnam and celebrations for the 1000th Anniversay of Hanoi.

Both their debut self-titled EP, featuring award winning debut single "Fists In My Pocket", and darker, more alternative follow up single "Get Me Out Of My Head", were critically acclaimed and went to #1 on a swathe of indie radio and TV charts in Australia and the US. The band released a third single, the epic James-Bond-soundtrack-esque "In The Twilight..." before taking a break in 2015.

Midway through 2019 Super Massive emerged from their four-year hiatus to release their slamming fourth single, "Meltwater", an uptempo yet tender ballad drenched with poetic imagery that was inspired by a nature documentary Malina watched on TV about the melting polar ice-caps and global warming.

The band’s unique and fiercely genre-defiant sound has seen Meltwater scoring radio airplay, blog write-ups and streaming playlisting from a swathe of music tastemakers across a wide range of genres from pop and synthpop, to rock and alternative rock, to electronic.

Meltwater has been on repeat play on Rebel FM’s Homebrew on and off since June. It’s had play on ABC Gold Coast and ABC Sunday, as well as widespread community radio play around Australia on Aussie Music Weekly and numerous other shows that support local indie music. It has also featured on blogs, music mags and Spotify playlists around the world from Sweden to Portugal to the USA to Mexico.
