More on the new record below.
Superorganism, The eight piece band – a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies who have been shortlisted in the BBC ‘Sound Of’ and VEVO ‘dscvr’ polls among others.
Self-produced, written and recorded in the east London house-stroke-studio-stroke band HQ they all share together (imagine a squat version of the Brill Building, or a lo-fi, DIY take on Max Martin’s Cheiron studio), ‘Superorganism’ is a spectacularly confident debut record that beams with a sense of wonky fun, a kaleidoscopic riot of sound and visuals.
Influenced by the world-building depth of artists like Devo, Beck and The Avalanches, Superorganism soundtracks the band’s rapid trajectory from shared house side project to global audiovisual powerhouse and features previous singles ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D.’ and ‘It’s All Good / Nobody Cares’ as well as their single ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’.

Monday 3rd December, Doors at 7pm
What? : XMAS SHOPPING with support from Demons, Dad Hair and Oh San Deul
When? : Monday, December 3rd – Doors at 7pm
How much mate? : £8 TOD or limited tickets at HERE
At last! (We have been close so many time…) MERRY CHRISTMAS! We are pleased as mulled punch to announce that long term faves SHOPPING will be performing for us at The Loft on Monday 3rd December. Expect to be gifted with a plethora of punk-funk mutant disco gems that work your head, heart and ass in equal measures!
Forming in London in 2012 they made an immediate impact on the scene with their propulsive live show, taking influence from the fractured grooves of post-punk luminaries such as ESG, Gang of Four, Au Pairs, etc. Their debut ‘Consumer Complaints’ landed in late 2013, self-released via their own MILK imprint it earnt them rave reviews, extensive radio play and the attention of Fat Cat Records (Honeyblood, TRAAMS, Animal Collective, U.S. Girls, Frightened Rabbit, No Age, Sigur Ros).
Fat Cat released their 2nd effort ‘Why Choose’ in 2015 where they refined their approach to sound, rhythm and social critique gaining them new fans over the pond. They released their 3rd album ‘The Official Body’ this year again via Fat Cat. A result of sessions with the legendary Edwyn Collins at his studio in the Scottish highlands the work has been lapped up by fans and critics alike, allowing the band to tour extensively across the US. Expect to see it feature heavily on the end of year lists.
Support comes from:
DEMONS – Southsea psych overlords, they match Sabbath heaviness with the rhythmic propulsions of Fela Kuti & CAN. A long-standing jewel in Southsea’s musical crown.
DAD HAIR – Noisy, unhinged yet melodic sorts formed from the remnants of Southsea act Red Seals. Melding elements of alternative rock (the good sort!), gothic post punk, garage and noise they deliver an intense barrage of sound of the scathing and soothing varieties.
OH SAN DEUL – The latest project from Alexander Luke O’Toole. His previous work as SACHA for Pie&Vinyl Records was fragile, bewitching and strangely humorous. Always a maverick, expect the unexpected but it expect it to be wonderful and utterly unique.
Tickets are £8 and can be bought in advance (which we would advise!) from wegottickets. As we are being super generous and putting 4 acts on the bill for you doors are at 7pm so get down early! See you there!
Big Thanks to Skever for the incredibly festive poster – look out for them around town

REVIEWS FOR THE OFFICIAL BODY
‘The third record from the UK trio wrangles their elastic, post-punk spirit into an urgency that feels bonded to the present. It makes for songs that are as mesmerizing as they are exhilarating.’ – Pitchfork, 8.1/10
‘The Official Body is the sound of a band pushing themselves forward towards a wider scope of themselves. Fast moving, thoughtful, dreamy post-punk with a social conscience that keeps the listener on their feet. Another great album from one of the UK’s best underground talents.’ – Drowned In Sound, 8/10
‘This is a record to dance to, but it’s also a record to help you question the world around you. Shopping will be fuelling the revolution one cowbell donk at a time.’ – NME
‘An itchy, infectious return, ‘The Official Body’ presents puzzles without solutions, a never-ending maze that pulls you sharply around it each corner. A dazzlingly creative effort, it might well be SHOPPING’s most complete, concise, and fascinating release yet.’ – CLASH, 8/10
‘Tightly compressed and structurally flab-free, these ten songs flirt with a hip twitching form of primitive disco. This is overlaid with the sharp guitar lines of The Cure (‘Asking For A Friend’), ’80s dark wave synth (‘Wild Child’), and tantalising signposts to dub (‘New Values’). If they are disposable then they share X-Ray Spex’s view of consumerism, countering the artifice with songs that are defiantly alive.’ – Loud And Quiet, 8/10
‘The juxtaposition between weighty lyrical themes and musical buoyancy is cathartic. Simultaneously of its time while managing to sound like a classic, The Official Body is a healing experience; there is light in the darkness. Shopping teach us that, even when we’re dealing with the imploding world around us, it’s still OK to dance.’ – The Skinny, 5*
