Superorganism announce debut London show
Published on 15th June 2017
Following the release of recent singles ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D’ and ‘It’s All Good’, Superorgansim today reveal their third single to date – ‘Nobody Cares’. Still keeping things firmly in the woozy realm of blissed-out slacker pop, the track makes up the second side of their now sold out self-released split 7” - available digitally on all major services from 16th June.
Following their recent relocation to London from various far-reaching corners of the globe, the now 8 piece group have set a date for their debut live performance. Never ones to do doing things by halves, the band will play at London’s cavernous Village Underground on October 5th.
The Transatlantic group, who feature Maine, New England-based, Japanese vocalist Orono and a sprawling line up of international musicians / pop culture junkies currently based in London, first introduced themselves at the start of 2017 with the idiosyncratic, technicolour pop of ’Something For Your M.I.N.D’. The track burned brightly, causing a huge stir online and across the airwaves (including plays by a certain Mr Frank Ocean) but a crash course in unintentional copyright infringement means that it currently resides in the ‘Oops, we couldn’t find that track’ files.
Commenting on ‘Nobody Cares’, Superorganism’s Orono says:
"Some people might have a negative connotation with the phrase "nobody cares," but others may perceive it as a positive outlook on life in a crowded city like London or Tokyo; it doesn't matter whether you're a crazy street preacher telling everyone they're going to hell, a moustachioed vape master on a unicycle, skipping about in a pink leotard, drunk guy telling a brick wall all about his problem, a flock of spandex mums pushing stroller, guy bbqjng chicken on the side of the road in a rasta beanie... nobody cares!
I think we were able to cleverly combine these two perspectives on people "not caring" because of my experience going to high school in a small town in Maine and my band mates' experiences of living in the big city of London. Working on the bridge was fun; we made it over-the-top and highly explosive in order to seamlessly bind all the craziness of the track together"
