Superorganism is probably one of the first bands born from intercontinental Skype sessions. Orono Noguchi moved from Japan to Maine as a teenager in the hope of attending college in the US, and discovered the New Zealand-born, London-based band the Eversons through YouTube recommendations. On a visit home to Japan she saw the group perform, and they struck up a friendship and collaboration that’s still maintained almost entirely online. After dropping the super-popular single “Everybody Wants to Be Famous” in January, the eight-member collective released their self-titled debut LP as Superorganism. With Beck-inspired samples of cash registers, birds chirping, and children’s laughter contrasting sharply against Noguchi’s numbed vocals, it’s a kind of pop that captures both the sensory overload and ennui of the internet age.
