Each week, Music Week profiles a red hot brand new artist. This week, Domino signings Superorganism are under the microscope...
Mysterious eight-piece pop collective, recently joined Arctic Monkeys et al on Domino’s roster.
Dippy, brainy, swampy... Superorganism twist their head-scrambling pop songs in myriad directions.
Drawn from the UK, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, they share a studio/warehouse in East London.
WHAT MAKES THEM SO MYSTERIOUS, THEN?
When Something For Your M.I.N.D. dropped, it hit Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and caught the attention of Frank Ocean, who played it on his Beats 1 show. The group’s identities were top secret, and people attributed the project to Damon Albarn and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, among others. Guess again, suckers.
BUT NOW THEY’RE SIGNED, WILL THEY PLAY THE GAME?
To an extent, yes. They’ve released a video, recently made their live debut at Reeperbahn festival and will hit the UK next month. They’re managed by the team behind Hot Chip and Jungle.
