Superorganism have dropped a new single ‘crushed.zip’ – you can listen to it below.
The track is the latest preview of the London-based pop collective’s forthcoming second album ‘World Wide Pop’, following previous singles ‘It’s Raining’ and ‘Teenager’.
“It’s a musical journey through the anxieties and isolation that can arise from being an artist, it’s ultimately delicious though”, said guitarist Harry.
Singer Orono Noguchi added: “I was thinking about Kanye [West] and Elliott Smith a lot (which is most of the time). I wanted to do like a really depressing and personal song but with the most deliciously obnoxious pop packaging. Stuart Price’s production really elevated it to the next level.”
The London-based collective will release the follow-up to their 2018 self-titled debut on July 15 via Domino. You can pre-order/pre-save the record from here.
It boasts contributions from Stephen Malkmus, Dylan Cartlidge as well as the Japanese musician and actor Gen Hoshino.
Superorganism will showcase ‘World Wide Pop’ on a UK headline tour this autumn, which concludes with a show at Scala in London on September 21. Gigs will also take place in Europe and North America.

Reviewing the band’s self-titled debut album, NME‘s Thomas Smith wrote: “It’s full of colourful characters and, for the most part, each song plays its part in this ambitious and vibrant debut record. Little before has sounded quite as unhinged but fun.”
