Superorganism - Something For Your M.I.N.D. (VINYL ALBUM)
Occasionally, along comes a band that perfectly captures so much of what is exciting about music right now. In 2017, mining the golden moments of pop's past, sights firmly set on the giddy possibilities of music's future, emitting an infectious sense ofwonky fun and producing a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals, that band could well be Superorganism.
Superorganismis a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies. They number eight in total -recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand -seven of whom now live together in a house-stroke-DIY studio-stroke-band HQ in Homerton, east London.
It was in this house, in early 2017, that the collective had their musical Big Bang! moment. Though they'd previously createdmusic 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. Oronowrote 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.'. Superorganismwas born.
At that point it's unlikely any of the members would have expected to hear that song -or Superorganism's debut AA single'It's All Good' / 'Nobody Cares'-played by Frank Oceanor Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenigthemselves on their respective 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 Dominolabel. Or that there'd be such demand to see Superorganismlive that their debut UK show would take place at London's 700 capacity Village Undergroundvenue. But over the last few months, such is the trajectory of this unique band that that is exactly what has happened.
