Rough Trade Albums of the Year 2018 No. 20
Rough Trade Album of the Month: March 2018
Superorganism, one of 2018’s most hotly tipped new artists release their highly anticipated debut album. The eight piece band - a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies have released this year's POP album. Self-produced, written and recorded in the east London house-stroke-studio-stroke band HQ they all share together (imagine a squat version of the Brill Building, or a lo-fi, DIY take on Max Martin’s Cheiron studio), Superorganism is a spectacularly confident debut record that beams with a sense of wonky fun, a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals. Influenced by the world-building depth of artists like Devo, Beck and The Avalanches, Superoganism soundtracks the band’s rapid trajectory from shared house side project to global audiovisual powerhouse and features previous singles Something For Your M.I.N.D. and It’s All Good / Nobody Cares as well as their brand single Everybody Wants To Be Famous.
