SUPERORGANISM’S SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT MARCH 2 ON DOMINO

“EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE FAMOUS” DEBUTS TODAY, WATCH VIDEO HERE

TOURING NORTH AMERICA IN 2018

“Goopy, cartoonish indie pop, the kind of colorful songs that grip campus spring weekends and frontal lobes." —The New Yorker

“A dream-like collage of internet memes and self-awareness set to pixelated synthesizer pop” —Rolling Stone

“Part-pop group, part-cult, full hivemind” —Dazed

“They will fuck with your brain, turn it inside out, make you question what you knew to be possible from the art of using instruments to make music” —Noisey

The debut, self-titled album from breakout stars Superorganism is set for release March 2 on Domino. After its premiere as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1, the band today unveils a new track from the album alongside a self-directed video—listen to/watch “Everybody Wants To Be Famoushere. Superorganism is available for pre-order here on physical formats, and here digitally.

Superorganism was recorded by the eight-strong collective, whose members hail from Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and beyond, over the course of 2017 in the house/studio they all share in East London (imagine a squat version of the Brill Building, or a lo-fi, DIY take on Max Martin’s Cheiron Studios). Imbued with world-building depth and produced, recorded, engineered and designed entirely by the band, it features breakout single “Something For Your M.I.N.D.,” as well as “It’s All Good” and “Nobody Cares.”

Following their sold-out debut U.S. performances in New York and Los Angeles, the band will tour North America and the E.U. this spring. Dates kick off Tuesday, March 20 at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop, with further dates in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Philly and beyond. Visit www.wearesuperorganism.com/ for more information.

The band recently made their television debut on “Later…With Jools Holland,” and was named to Best of 2017 lists by Rolling Stone, The FADER, Stereogum and more. Rolling Stone also calls them an “artist you need to know.”

Superorganism is a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies. They number eight in total—seven of whom now live together in a house/DIY studio/band HQ in East London.

It was in this house that the collective was truly born. Though the housemates had previously created music and visuals together, in various iterations, a track written in January 2017 stood apart from anything that had come before. On a whim, needing a fresh take on the vocals, they sent the music to their friend Orono, a Japanese student whom they met in Asia, who was at that time attending high school in Maine. Orono immediately wrote and recorded a vocal part and pressed “reply.” What came back across the Atlantic less than 24 hours later was an intoxicating piece of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop. That track was ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’ - a song that upon its very D.I.Y. release was enthusiastically greeted by music websites across the globe, before being quickly and unceremoniously pulled from the internet due to a sample clearance issue.

At that point in time, it’s unlikely that any of the eight members of Superorganism could have anticipated what would happen over the course of the following months - that ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’, despite no longer being available to hear, would have caused a massive swell of interest in Superorganism, and that their follow up singles ‘It’s All Good’ and ‘Nobody Cares’ would end up being played on radio stations across the United States. 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 they’d soon be announcing shows in Europe, the UK, and the U.S.A., bringing the Superorganism live show to intrigued audiences worldwide.

Occasionally, along comes a band that perfectly captures so much of what is thrilling 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 of wonky fun and producing a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals, that band is Superorganism.
