Adding to their already-announced Splendour in the Grass appearance, London-based collective SUPERORGANISM today reveal details of their first-ever Australian headline shows. The transatlantic eight-piece will head through Melbourne’s 170 Russell on Sunday 22nd July, before stopping into Sydney’s Metro Theatre for an all-ages show on Tuesday 24th July.
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 in March , 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.
Joining Superorganism on their Australian dates is local up-and-comer G FLIP. With self-produced debut single ‘About You’, G Flip has gained traction both locally and internationally across the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, Pigeons and Plans, triple j and more. It’s an addictive, bittersweet shard of shimmering pop, inspired by her "hectic, toxic, cinematic" on-off relationship.
Superorganism; get ready to meet your new favourite band when they land in July for their first ever Australian shows.
“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.”
– Consequence of Sound
