Superhuman Happiness
Movement becomes contagious listening to Superhuman Happiness whose joyful sound has been dubbed "physical cinematic dance rock." The relentlessly creative band became known for ecstatic dance parties at Zebulon in Brooklyn. Their reputation further grew upon touring nationally with artists like Rubblebucket, Marco Benevento and Red Baraat. They wrote and performed the score to the Oscar-nominated documentary film, 'How To Survive A Plague.' While other highlights include collaborating with Cults on the 'Red, Hot & Rio 2' compilation. Signed to the Brooklyn label The Royal Potato Family, Superhuman Happiness released an EP and a series of 7-inch singles prior to their new full-length album debut, 'Hands.' The recording runs the gamut from celebratory syncopated handclaps ("Our Favorite Part") to the coronation grandeur of church bells ("Second Heart"), from art-pop dance beats ("See Me On My Way") to math rock angularity (“Half Step Grind"). Its members are all key NYC players with a collective resume that stretches across a dizzying array of talent, including Antibalas, Phenomenal Handclap Band, TV On The Radio, Iron & Wine, tUnE-yArDs and Cibo Matto. It’s together, however, where their individual voices coalesce into one shared vision. As 'Hands' so eloquently expresses, this is music striving for Superhuman Happiness.
