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. Working with the acclaimed Brooklyn record 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.
"Designed to drive an audience to dance, the music of Superhuman Happiness is a loose, spontaneous alternative to the rigidity of computer-generated electronic dance music." - WALL STREET JOURNAL
"Their music joins buoyant call-and-response harmonies, rippling highlife-inspired guitar leads, !!!'s muscular funk-punk, and the spirited pulses of Steve Reich's Clapping Music" -SPIN
"That rush comes through in the music with each song...like they were handing down from the Party Gods, fully formed and ready to shake your ass." - MAGNET
"While Superhuman Happiness live shows have already become something of legend throughout Brooklyn, 'Hands' is likely to establish the band as one of the best rising acts to listeners far and wide." - RELIX
