Based in Leeds, Superpowerless is 20-year-old Oliver Hindle, who describes his music as "Game Boy-fueled adventure-core". Despite his youth and limited budget, he was able to put together this excellent video -- which lives out a fantasy I've always had of crashing pedal karts into stacks of colored boxes -- after winning an MTV / Vodafone competition.
For his prize, Superpowerless spent a week with a record producer to polish the song and release it through Vodaphone's live download service, and had a music video directed by Luc Janin, who previously worked with other UK artists such as The Fratellis and Stereophonics. The video was then aired on MTV in 29 countries. Great exposure for a chiptune act!
