FREE FEST: First Band Announced for PearlPalooza

Superorganism is the first band to be announced for the ninth annual PearlPalooza, the free music festival that is slated to take over Albany’s North Pearl Street on Saturday, September 15.

Led by vocalist Orono Noguchi, the eight-member international collective – whose members hail from Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. – recorded their self-titled debut album over the course of 2017 in the house/studio they all share in East London. The album was released on Domino Records just last month.

The New York Times has declared, “There is warped, whimsical stuff all over Superorganism, but none of it is cheeky… a full-spectrum auditory experience, the sound of renegade toys weeping after a bender — curious, saccharine, unsteady and twee, but not weak… There is seriousness of purpose in the music, but what elevates Superorganism beyond sound experiment is the lead singer and lyricist, Orono, who writes arresting off-hand verses that convey brutal depths in an unerringly sweet tone.”

Stay tuned for more band announcements for the 2018 PearlPalooza…
