Superorganism share new single “It’s Raining” featuring Stephen Malkmus
Having announced their return earlier this month with news of their long-awaited second album – World Wide Pop, due July 15th - Superorganism now deliver the second song from the upcoming record and another slice of irresistible pop. Like the previously shared “Teenager”, “It’s Raining” also features collaborators joining the Superorganism colony; this time from Stephen Malkmus and UK rapper Dylan Cartlidge. Amidst the stomping beats, glitchy synth drips and their collage-like maximalism, another familiar voice can be heard courtesy of a Scott Walker sample. The band says of the collaborations on “It’s Raining”: “We've been enormous fans of Stephen Malkmus forever, and we loved the idea of combining Malkmus and Scott Walker into a strange almost broken-sounding hip hop track. We'd done a remix for Dylan Cartlidge and absolutely loved his flow; we asked him if he'd like to try a verse and he fit so naturally. With Dylan being from the North of England and Stephen in Portland, the rain theme is all the more fitting for them too.”
Directed by AEVA, the video features illustrations from Risa Kazama, and takes us - as a smiling drop of rain - on a journey through a bullet train meeting each member of Superorganism as well as Malkmus and Cartlidge.
