Superhuman Happiness releasing ‘Beacon’ (stream a track)
Superhuman Happiness, the band led by saxophonist Stuart Bogie (who plays/played with Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine, TV on the Radio, and more), are following 2015's Escape Velocity with new album Beacon on October 19 via new label Yeggs Records. The album features contributions from Arcade Fire member Richard Reed Parry, Arcade Fire/Bon Iver collaborator Colin Stetson, and Darkside's Dave Harrington.
We're premiering the lead single, "Bury Me (By Where My Baby Walks)." It's just over six minutes long, and it features some pretty out-there, experimental stuff (and lyrical references to the Egyptian Book of the Dead), but towards the end it turns into danceable, addictive art pop, and the payoff is totally worth it. Fans of Tune-Yards and Gang Gang Dance will probably dig. Check it out below.
