Superorganism announce 2018 EU & North American headline tour
7th November 2017
Following a run of rapturously received debut live performances – including a 700 capacity sell out London show at the capital’s Village Underground – Superorganism today announce an extensive run of European and north American headline shows for 2018. The tour will include six UK shows, including their biggest headline show to date at London’s 1000 capacity Oval Space.
Tickets for all shows are available from today, with full details here.
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 - who now all live together in a house-stroke-DIY studio-stroke-band HQ in Homerton, east London.
It was in this house, in January 2017, that the collective had their 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 track - or its follow up AA single ‘It’s All Good’ / ‘Nobody Cares’ - played by Frank Ocean or Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig themselves on their respective radio shows. Or that the band’s identity would be the subject of so much speculation. Or that they would sign a deal with the legendary independent Domino label. Or that there’d be such demand to see Superorganism live that their debut UK show would be the aforementioned sold out roadblock at London’s Village Underground. But over the last few months, such is the trajectory of this unique band that that is exactly what has happened.
