Occasionally, along comes a band that perfectly captures so much of what is thrilling about music right now. Superorganism is a sprawling collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies, numbering eight in total.
Recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, they now live together in a house-stroke-diy studio-stroke-band HQ in Homerton, East London.
It was in this house, in January 2017, that the collective 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, New England. 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 track was "Something For Your M.I.N.D.".
Superorganism was born. One year later, almost to the day, the band have announces their self-titled debut album, released on Domino: a festival-ready full-length rich with bonafide summer anthems, genius samples and their trademark patchwork production.
