VIBES is written by husband and wife Suzy Starlite and Simon Campbell who are passionate about art as well as each other.

Inspired by all the ‘stuff’ that stimulates the five senses and your imagination, VIBES is a collection of Suzy and Simon’s musings about life, culture, music and current affairs in a thoughtful and (hopefully) amusing way.

The point of doing this is to have a closer relationship with readers and to speak freely, without any algorithms, intermediaries or gatekeepers.

It’s like an intimate dinner party with you, Suzy and Simon - who knows what you’ll talk about.

The Supertone Show

From November 2015 to October 2019 and January 2023 to April 2024 they released a weekly music-inspired podcast about songs and the people who make them. The archive of 162 episodes can be found here.

Statement

We are full-time multimedia artists and lovers of independent, liberal thought from people who respect themselves, others and the planet.

Our studio is close to Lisbon, Portugal and live there with our four Labrador Retrievers, Hummock, Bobby, Françoise and Edith.

We are passionate about all things analogue, complemented by the best the digital world has to offer.

Music is our creative foundation and primary form of expression, informing our work in visual media and experiential installations.

Primarily songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and lovers of all genres, we cover a lot of ground, with Suzy’s work based in contemporary British folk and Simon’s rooted in rock and Americana. Together we have explored electronica, blends of rock and blues, folk and most recently art-rock, which combines studio recordings, collage, video and live performance. Whatever the style, our lyrics are front and centre.

Flying in the face of disposable music, we write, record, engineer, play and produce all our work but creative and technical collaborative partnerships are becoming increasingly important to us.

Our work is overtly political, based on our belief in democracy and a post-capitalist, sustainable future where social justice, inclusivity and access to a basic income, education and healthcare are universal.

Making art is the best way of spending our time coins, constantly pushing ourselves to explore the unfamiliar and discover unknown treasures. 

We hope to inspire new ways of seeing and thinking in those who experience our art - a creative community.

Good science is our religion and yes, we believe in extraterrestrial life.
