Just announced for Splendour in the Grass are London-based collective SUPERORGANISM.
Rising to prominence off the back of their technicolour pop single ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’, Superorganism have been on a runaway train of success. They have sold out debut shows around the world, been longlisted for BBC Sound of 2018, performed live on Jools Holland, and been championed by both Frank Ocean and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, on their respective radio shows.
With their spectacularly confident debut self-titled album, which was featured by triple j on release last month, Superorganism have taken the world by storm. Album tracks ‘It’s All Good’, ‘Nobody Cares’ and ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ are intoxicating curveballs and undeniably worthy follow up gems to their fizzing debut single.
Superorganism’s eight members, international musicians and self-confessed pop culture junkies, hail from Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the UK, and live under one roof in London’s East End. Originally bonding via internet forums rather than geographical location, it’s the band’s new-age sonic appeal that sets them apart.
The indie-pop collective will charm audiences at Primavera Sound, Latitude, Fuji Rock Festival, Lollapalooza and more over the coming months, with a live show that has been touted as “exuberant, effortless and excellent” by The Line Of Best Fit.
Get ready to meet your new favourite band when they land in July for their first ever Australian festival show.
“ambitious and vibrant debut record…” – NME
“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
“an album that confirms Superorganism as that rarest and most wonderful of all musical beasts…”
“Superorganism evokes the genre-hopping hooks of Weezer set against Animal Collective’s sonic experimentation as filtered through Architecture from Helsinki’s pop maximalism.”
