Superorganism sings about “the isolation that can come from being an artist” on new single “crushed.zip”

Superorganism is back with a video for their new single “crushed.zip”.

The title comes from their forthcoming album, world pop, released on July 15. On “crushed.zip”, Superorganism takes its sound in a more melancholy direction. Lyrically, the track is about what it’s like to be an artist. Produced by AEVA, the song is accompanied by a video with animations by Neirin Best, Dan W Jacobs, Wayne McCauslin and Nicholas Barnes.

“It’s a musical journey through the anxieties and isolation that can come with being an artist, but it’s ultimately delightful,” Harry says of the song.

“I was thinking a lot about Kanye and Elliott Smith (which is most of the time),” adds Orono. “I wanted to do like a really depressing and personal song but with the most deliciously obnoxious pop wrapper. Stuart Price’s production really took it to the next level.

world pop marks the follow-up to their 2018 self-titled debut. The collaboration-heavy album features big-name guests such as Stephen Malkmus, CHAI, Pi Ja Ma, Dylan Cartlige and Gen Hoshino.

In addition to “crushed.zip”, world pop features previously released singles “It’s Raining (feat. Stephen Malkmus & Dylan Cartlidge)” and “Teenager (feat. CHAI & Pi Ja Ma)”.
