Have You Heard? Superorganism - Everybody Wants To Be Famous

Superorganism by Phil Smithies

The single sparkles with untamed life, like bouncing through a magical forest in a PS1 game

Domino-signed hyper-modern pop collective Superorganism’s formula is already clear, less than a year into their career. Dream-like, sample-heavy production laid over simple but addictive vocals, debut single proper ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’ was enough on its own to sell out a debut London show to 600 people.

The ingredients are largely the same on newie ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’, but a lack of deviation doesn’t mean a jot when the songs are this good at their core. An ode to internet fame - suitable, given the band all met online - the single sparkles with untamed life, like bouncing through a magical forest in a PS1 game. There’s also generous lashings of cash register sounds, which we’d never say no to.
