Persona

Superhumanoids make dreamy pop that shouts summery '60s harmonies, garage rock's raw tonality, slick new-wave electronics, and the adventurous dissonance of '90s indie rock. Originally a solo bedroom project, the LA band quickly evolved into a multifaceted foursome equally focused on propulsive live performances and glimmery productions for private listening. Superhumanoids' 2008 demos were passed around by pals to friends of pals, leading to remix work for an array of artists including The Wombats, Zebra & Snake, Xiu Xiu, and Local Natives. Superhumanoids' formal debut, Urgency, was released in 2010 by Hit City USA (US) and Oh! Inverted World (UK) to acclaim from The Fader, LA Weekly, and The Guardian. The EP, available on 12" vinyl and digital download, was produced and recorded by Superhumanoids and highlights the crew's penchant for organic textures, electronic flourishes, and charming male/female vocal interplay.
