In 2021, CHAI made their Sub Pop debut with WINK, securing their position as “a professional purveyor of whimsy” (The New York Times). Tonight, Friday, July 8th (at 8 pm PT/ 11 pm ET) they are sharing the animated, 16-bit official video for “HERO JOURNEY,” their new single and collaboration with Domino Recording Company act Superorganism.

CHAI says of the Superorganism collaboration, “We held a mutual liking and love for one another’s music and eventually were invited to open for them on their UK and Europe Tour.  From recording while on the tour bus to even joining in as guests at their shows in Japan!  So many memories we share! Having played around with music together in the past makes this collaboration that much more special.

“This song is all about Hero’s coming in all forms! and how amazing that is! Superorganism has reached all nationalities and ages, recognizing those differences and embracing them. The perfect fit for this song.  As a post-WINK release and at a time where a new CHAI is brewing, this song is nothing but perfect.  It screams Summer! So stay tuned!  More CHAI to come!”

YUUKI adds, “Is the job of a “justice-seeking” HERO only to defeat “evil”?  Perhaps the opposite of “justice” isn’t “evil”, but rather “another form of justice”?!  Me and mine, you and yours…what each of us calls “justice”, should be able to dance amongst one other!  That HERO you all see, is who CHAI wants to be.   Gather all your friends you love cus’ we’re going to fly again today! It’s that type of song!”

Superorganism’s Orono offers this, “Category is drag queen superhero realness… and you bet we served it on a big, fat platter for this one. Sugary explosion of nothing but pure and refined girl bossery! Anyway so stoked that we finally got to collab with our friends… more to come 🐸”
