Superorganism, a collective of pop wunderkinds pulled from all corners of the globe, including the UK, Japan, and New Zealand, made a splash in 2017 with their debut single “Something For Your M.I.N.D.”. Their follow-up releases, “It’s All Good” and “Nobody Cares”, continued to earn them more attention, such as seals of approval from Frank Ocean and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and a deal with indie record label Domino.
Now, the group is looking to carry over some of that hype into the new year with a fresh track called “Everybody Wants To Be Famous”. It’s an effervescent song that capitalizes on all the bright spots that have made Superorganism a super specimen of an act — there are synths that bleep, swirl, and seem to change color, whimsical vocals, and an unstoppable energy.
Take a listen below. Update: The track’s official music video has been revealed. Directed by Robert Strange, it stars the band’s own Orono as a wealthy and famous YouTuber.
“Everybody Wants To Be Famous” is taken from the band’s self-titled debut, expected to drop March 2nd through Domino. In support, Superorganism will kick off a European and North American tour later this month.
