Superorganism – “On & On”

Jack Bridgland

London indie-pop collective Superorganism are releasing their sophomore album, World Wide Pop, in July, and so far we’ve heard a few tracks: “Teenager,” “It’s Raining,” “crushed.zip,” and now they’re back with another one: “On & On.” The pop-leaning “On & On” also has a music video directed and animated by AEVA and features character animation by Diana Gradinaru. “It is a bit of an analogy between the groundhog day effect touring can have, and the cyclical nature of growing as a person and repeating the same mistakes along the way,” Harry explains of the track.

The band adds of their video: “Think of how today we look back on previous eras with fascination and an often rose-tinted vision, like the swinging ’60s, but there was strife and anxieties in any era that isn’t necessarily captured by that nostalgia. We want to give a sense that there is no such thing as a ‘good old days,’ by showing someone in the future looking back at our current day thinking that the 2020s appear like the ‘good old days.'”
