Formed in 2006 and collectively lead by the clear-voiced, half-showtune/half-crooner informed vocal delivery of their charismatic lead singer/songwriter Mark Hanify, Supermodel is the most invigorating new melodic rock act to emerge out of Wellington, New Zealand in recent times.
Structured around comparable musical traditions to those existed within by the likes of Queen, Muse and The Strokes, Supermodel is a four-piece band made up of Mark on lead vocals/guitar, his sister Rose on keyboards, Michael White on bass and Tony Kemp on drums. All top-tier singers, Rose, Michael and Tony provide lush backing vocals, fleshing out Mark's melody and harmony centralised songwriting into powerfully vibrant stadium size arrangements. Lyrically dealing with the key themes of love and adversity, Supermodel make songs for soul searching. Emotive and moving, their music serves as a comforting reminder that more often then not, things will be alright.
Supermodel first debuted in the KiwiFM Top 10 on 22 July 2007 with the song Send Me Dreaming. There are two entries by Supermodel in the charts.
