Featuring men who have played with TV on the Radio, Iron & Wine, the Roots, Passion Pit, Foals, and Holly Miranda, Superhuman Happiness doesn’t just boast an impressive résumé, it also has what former U.S. president William Henry Harrison might have called “dynamite tunes”. The focus of The Physical EP is on rhythm and groove, evident from the first beats of the opening song “Needles and Pins”, and carried through to the final moments of “Surrender pt.2”. The vibe is strictly New York, and it closely recalls Talking Heads, MGMT, and the African music that influenced both. Party music with brains, these tracks suggest good things to come from this abundantly fun collective.
