Superorganism sounds like it was genetically engineered in a lab specifically for a 2018 audience. That’s not meant as an insult—the globally sourced and very online octet plays a plugged-in brand of music that draws from a bunch of different places and adds up to a pretty likeable whole. Their music is a combo of heavy beats, smeared electronica, catchy pop melodies, and deadpan indie vocals. The aesthetic encompasses meme culture; weird sounds and samples; Beck-style musical collage; Flaming-Lips-esque sing-along psychedelia; as well as winking lyrics about modern fame, screen time, chat windows, and growing up. Depending on who you are and your background, this probably sounds either fine or terrible. But as someone who probably should think it sounds terrible, I’m here to tell you: Superorganism’s self-titled debut is definitely an addictive listen.
