Today, we continue sharing our discoveries from the Trans Musicales festival in Rennes, France, where last December we captured twelve exclusive sessions. We’re sharing with you one unique session per week, and you can watch all the previously released ones here. This week’s feature is of Superorganism.

DJ Morgan says of the band:

Our first band of the day was UK collective, Superorganism, who have been playing together for 11 months -- January 6th, 2017 to be exact as 17-year-old frontwoman, Orono, quickly told me. Six of the seven members used to be in a different project based in New Zealand and Orono, who is from Japan but goes to school in Maine in the US, found their music online and became a fan. When she was back home in Japan, she was able to see them play when they toured through and they all quickly became friends, and soon formed Superorganism. By mid-January, they began releasing songs, including their first single “Something For Your M.I.N.D.” and were signed to Domino Records not long after that. Their debut self-titled album will be out in March, then they will hit the road touring through 2018. I have a feeling you’ll be hearing a lot more from Superorganism, who seem very adept at writing some seriously catchy electro-pop bangers.
