“Something For You M.I.N.D” is the soundtrack of the most weirdly artsy dream you can imagine.
It’s electrifying when stylish, new, original, and catchy-as-hell music that completely tests your expectations pops up. The eight member group from the U.S., London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand came together earlier this year to record the charmingly strange single, “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” The track came to life when the group sent an early demo via Facebook message to their friend Orono, who at the time was a high school student in Maine. Orono recorded the vocals on her Macbook’s mic via Garageband and hit reply. After making cover artwork, backing vocals, and adding some crafty sound tweaking, one of the freshest indie pop songs of the year was born.
An unofficial earlier release of the track caused a stir and gained support from Frank Ocean and Ezra Koenig, but it was yanked as quickly as it came up. And until its re-release, the single was a bit of an elusive online gem, where it lived only in hastily recorded mp3 files strewn around random parts of the internet. Luckily, the mysteriously vanishing track was replaced by the equally quirky and bright singles, “Nobody Cares” and “It’s All Good” which both own in their own right.
But the single is back! And even better, it’s accompanied by a crazily colorful and psychedelic music video–retro video clips and whale graphics included. So sit back, click play, jam the f*** out, and most importantly, keep your eye on Superorganism. Put their music on a playlist and send it to your crush. Tweet it. Dance around like an idiot to it in public. I don’t care. The point is, you need to check it out.
Even better, catch Superorganism at one of their upcoming US or Western Europe tour dates to have your mind exploded in real time.
