Superorganism - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

We had a fun time talking with London-based cross-cultural indie pop band Superorganism during a recent shopping trip to Amoeba Hollywood. Orono Noguchi, Soul, B, and Ruby picked out records by some of their favorite artists, including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kanye West, and Carole King and introduced us to cat ASMR.

Superorganism is a band of non-conformists. Bump into any of the eight members (Orono, Emily, Harry, Ruby, B, Robert, Tucan and Soul) in the street -- a contrasting collection of disparate and idiosyncratic individuals -- and you might never know they’re in a band together, let alone all live in the same house. Superorganism’s difference comes from a kind of permanent outsider status. With members from the U.K., Japan, New Zealand, Korea and Australia, they bonded via the internet rather than one geographical location, finding each other on forums while nerding out about music. Their similarities eventually brought them all together IRL, culminating in a mass migration to an unassuming terraced house in East London that they soon turned into an energized creative hub.
