We live in a world that is more connected than ever thanks to technological innovations over the past 20 years. Through this blog alone, I’ve been able to interact and connect with fellow music lovers from Britain, Canada, and even Iceland. It was only a matter of time before a group of musicians from around the globe decided to use the power of the internet and collaborative applications to create an album together, all while being on different continents.
Superorganism is a fitting name for a band composed of eight members from around the globe, ranging from New Zealand to Japan, from Britain to the United States. The result is a debut that is an amalgam of creative energies. Their powers congeal into one gleaming bolt of energy, the songs lighthearted, filled with joyful melodies and silly lyricism. Superorganism’s debut is what it would sound like if the Disneyland’s “Small World” children grew up and combined their positive energy for world pop domination.
