TC Superstar About
TC Superstar is the solo project of Austin-based songwriter Connor McCampbell. He wrote a collection of synth wave songs over the summer of 2017 and released TC Superstar’s first album, Masc, in September 2017 through Austin-based label Porch Fire Records. Fans and critics have described TC Superstar as “bloopy 80’s revivalist synth pop” with “monotone vocals” and “pretty good beats.” McCampbell’s influences include Talking Heads, Chairlift, Arthur Russell, Blood Orange, and Alex Cameron.
McCampbell collaborates with choreographer LB Flett for the band’s live performances, which include dance by Flett as well as Emily DiFranco and Francis Rodriguez. The live band features Mitchell Webb and Julio Correa, both involved in McCampbell’s previous projects Polyprop and R.C. CAT.
