It's hard to define Superchick when the members keep changing on an album-by-album basis. Max Hsu, the band's founder, explains their restlessness by saying "We're more of a movement than a band." While they haven't done for music what other movements have, like the modern worship movement a la Passion or David Crowder, their movement is more a behavioral one, a rally cry for young folks' personal strength, purity and self-pride. The one thing the variant members have in common is talent and mass teen pop appeal, hitting on some nice pop licks and endearing ballads. One of the oddest occurrences ever in a band's life story: While writing album number four, all six (at the time) members experienced break-ups of serious romantic relationships. The upside goes to the listener, who gets a whole new level of creation—aching harmonies, more mature writing and introspective melodies. Superchick succeeded in creating surprising Beauty from Ashes.
