Superorganism share new single “It’s Raining” featuring Stephen Malkmus – watch the video here. New album World Wide Pop coming July 15th.
- “An explosion of bubble-gum hooks, wild production ideas and genuinely poignant reflections about growing up” New York Times
- “Their sound has found few parallels since the release of their 2018 self-titled debut” The Fader
- “Teenager’ is a ridiculous, totally insane clash of cultures and styles that’s impossible to pin down but totally perfect in its evocations” PAPER
- “There isn’t another band like Superorganism” Dork
- “Explosive new single” Clash
Having announced their return earlier this month with news of their long awaited second album – World Wide Pop, due July 15th – Superorganism now deliver the second song from the upcoming record and another slice of irresistible pop.
Like the previously shared Teenager, “It’s Raining” also features collaborators joining the Superorganism colony; this time from Stephen Malkmus and UK rapper Dylan Cartlidge. Amidst the stomping beats, glitchy synth drips and their collage-like maximalism, another familiar voice can be heard courtesy of a Scott Walker sample.
The band say of the collaborations on “It’s Raining”: “We’ve been enormous fans of Stephen Malkmus forever, and we loved the idea of combining Malkmus and Scott Walker into a strange almost broken-sounding hip hop track. We’d done a remix for Dylan Cartlidge and absolutely loved his flow; we asked him if he’d like to try a verse and he fit so naturally. With Dylan being from the North of England and Stephen in Portland, the rain theme is all the more fitting for them too.”
Stream “It’s Raining” here.
Directed by AEVA, the video features illustrations from Risa Kazama, and takes us – as a smiling drop of rain – on a journey through a bullet train meeting each member of Superorganism as well as Malkmus and Cartlidge.
“It’s Raining” artwork by Orono Noguchi:
World Wide Pop blasts back with thirteen tracks that strike a balance between artifice and earnestness, between sci-fi silliness and existential intensity. A showcase for Superorganism’s newly deepened understanding of each other’s interests and impulses, the kind of creative convergence you’d expect when online friends start spending time together IRL (their debut was completed before the whole band had ever been in the same room at the same time).
