Something For Your M.I.N.D.
Limited One Sided etched 7" with Download. Occasionally, along comes a band that perfectly captures so much of what is exciting about music right now. In 2017, mining the golden moments of pop’s past, sights firmly set on the giddy possibilities of music’s future, emitting an infectious sense of wonky fun and producing a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals, that band could well be Superorganism. Superorganism is a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies. They number eight in total - recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand - seven of whom now live together in a house-stroke-DIY studio-stroke-band HQ in Homerton, east London. It was in this house, in early 2017, that the collective had their musical Big Bang! moment.
Though they’d previously created music and visuals together, this was something distinctly fresh. They sent the track to their friend Orono, a Japanese student who at that time was studying at high school in Maine, New England. Orono wrote and recorded a vocal part and pressed ‘reply’. What came back across the Atlantic was an intoxicating piece of idiosyncratic, technicolor pop. That track was Something For Your M.I.N.D.. Superorganism was born. At that point it’s unlikely any of the members would have expected to hear that song - or Superorganism’s debut AA single It’s All Good / Nobody Cares - played by Frank Ocean or Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig themselves on their respective radio shows.
