Superhumanoids share 'Flipping Out' and a beat-heavy playlist

Superhumanoids

You don’t find many electropop groups covering Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age, but that’s exactly the kind of thing that LA’s Superhumanoids excel in.

The band’s preferred tactic is to juxtapose singer Sarah Chernoff’s lilting, dreamy vocals against harsh electronic sounds, like the grinding synth bass on its otherwise intensely mellow new single “Flipping Out.” This adds an intriguingly rough edge to a track that otherwise conjures up images of languorous Californian decadence. If any music directors are looking to score a scene of good-looking young people swimming underwater in slow motion, they’re in luck.

Along with the single, the group has shared with EW a playlist that, like its music, blends hooky pop and ambitiously experimental electronic beats. Superhumanoids will be hitting the road shortly to open for electropop godfathers Erasure.
