Sid Sriram is a man of many renditions, his latest being “Superstar.” Channeling the same detached vibe as Karen Carpenter in the Carpenters’ version, Sid flips it up with a role reversal of sorts. No matter whose perspective it’s coming from, the tale of failed groupie love is timeless. Directed by Doom&Gloom, the video is borderline haunting and creepy with that lo-fi effect. Between Sid’s vocals, and the way that the video was shot, I found myself expecting something scary to happen.
It didn’t, but it’s still worth clicking play.
