Occasionally, along comes a band that Perfectly captures so much of what is thrilling about music right now! Superorganism is a collection of eight international musicians and pop culture junkies (London/Japan/Australia/New Zealand) whose “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” we’re frankly beginning to worry about since We Simply Can’t Stop Playing It!
Numbering eight in total, and recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Superorganism currently live together in a house/DIY studio/band HQ in East London.
It was in this house back in January that Superorganism had their big bang moment. Though they’d previously created music and visuals together, this was something distinctly fresh. They sent the track to their friend Orono, a Japanese student who at that time was studying at high school in Maine. Orono wrote and recorded a vocal part and pressed “reply”. What came back across the Atlantic was an intoxicating piece of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop that was “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” With that, Superorganism was born!
It’s unlikely at that point Superorganism would’ve expected to hear that track played on Frank Ocean or Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig’s radio shows, Or that the band’s identity would be the subject of so much speculation. Or that they would sign a deal with the legendary independent Domino label or that there’d be such demand to see the band live that their debut UK show would full London’s 700 capacity Village Underground. But over the last few months such is the trajectory of this unique band. You, my friend, are in for a treat!

“a hopelessly replayable loosie…it’s trying exactly hard enough. There’s a dramatic pause right in the middle of the hook, and it makes me grin every time.”–TheFADER
“The song now has a video to go along with it made up of a mix of footage that looks as gooey and eclectic as the track itself.”–Stereogum
“filled with cartoonish noises, a vintage sample and a killer pop chorus. A delightfully bizarre arrival.”–NME (Best Songs Of 2017 So Far)
“The supercool jam is woozy and head-nodding, with deep sludgy beats and a quirky, colorful chorus.”–WXPN/The Key
