Superorganism (Domino/Hostess)

One word… PERFECT! It’s new, cute, stimulating and makes everyone energized at any time and at any place. It fills your heart with happiness and makes you want to dance. It’s that type of album that never lets you forget about your childish side, makes you feel like you can do whatever you want, has such a strong sense of individuality, and at the same time has nothing but catchy tunes. Out of all the artists that have come out recently, Superorganism is the group that we’ve gotten the most musical stimulation from. Not only did we get to open for them for the U.K. length of their 2018 world tour, but they’ve got great personalities that you can feel just by listening to this album. The songs on the album speak for itself: “they live the way they want to.” Every song is relatable and all of them are my favorite. Their sound is like no other and you’ll never get bored. There’s always that one song on an album that you may want to skip, but not with Superorganism, not with this album.

Take “Something for Your M.I.N.D.,” the first tune on the album. It’s food for the soul. We always need something to stimulate our minds and this song gives you just that. It’s simple but to the point. “It’s All Good” combines the sounds of funk, pop, and electronic all in one. It has a youthful sound but isn’t limited to just the youth. Anyone can listen to it and remember it. “Everybody Wants to Be Famous” is a statement that anyone, artist or not, can relate to. It sort of reflects the age that we’re in today, where everyone does anything and everything just to be “famous.” Where there is no limit to what it takes to get there. Where anyone can be famous for literally anything. “Prawn Song” — be you, no matter if the world is doing something else. That’s the type of song this is. How clever is it to compare your individuality, non-conformity to a prawn? This is their first album everyone! Isn’t it amazing? I love it! Such an amazing group!
