New Soutaiseiriron: “Neo Future”

We’ve officially gone beyond the point of no return when it comes to caring about celebrities and politics, so I’m glad Soutaiseiriron is still out here making songs about the future that aren’t really about anything in particular except for wordplay and semi-absurdist (but not really) imagery. “Neo Future” finds the band dipping into their love of nerdy tech words to create an image of tomorrow oversaturated technology, reflected in a busy synth melody eventually ripped apart by a guitar solo. Yet it is neither judgemental or giddy, just kind of shrugging at the idea. And it reaches a peak when they sing “put your hands up bots / put your hands up humans.” Hey, seems closer than you think! Listen above.
