Superorganism are great.
Superorganism are a band that couldn’t exist without the internet. They met online and their music is a reflection of how all-encompassing our online lives now are. New single ‘Sprorgnsm’ takes this one step further, finding the group fervently wishing they were part of a super organism, which as a disembodied voice in the song helpfully explains is “a creature made up of many different individuals”.
It doesn’t exactly fit into the usual list of careers people want when they grow up, but then Superorganism have demonstrated pretty extensively at this point that they aren’t normal.
All the hallmarks of what made previous singles ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ and ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D’ so good are here in spades too. Wonky synth lines, sounds that could have been pulled straight from the weirder moments of Spongebob Squarepants, and a self-awareness that stops them devolving into fake-deep philosophy about the nature of the world.
Superorganism are great, and we’d happily be a part of whatever hive mind they want to plug us into. Jake Hawkes
