Crowd Kontrol

about

This is the first track we wrote for our upcoming 4th album, representing a darker pivot from Alien Me and into a somewhat industrial direction while keeping with some of the sound. It is also a bit of catharsis for us given the state of things from earlier this year.

Fellow musicians might enjoy knowing we opted to run our digital master out to a Type 1 cassette tape - on purpose! It gave us the sound we were wanting that we were not able to get using other means. That also made it a lot of fun!

Likewise, for this album, being both inspired by industrial and synth-wave concepts, we decided to try integrating Renoise (a modern tracker) into our compositional process. It handles a lot of the sampled instruments (including some rather old school ones from Tim's treasure trove of Impulse Tracker samples) as well as most of the MIDI control for our synthesizers. The result is an, intentionally, more tracker-like sound.

lyrics

I got the world on fire
In the palm of my hand
I got the masses on hire
To follow my command

I make the mob mentality
With every sentence said
I twist your reality
To keep the rich fed

Drop words like atomic bombs
Rain bullets from the sky
Follow me to the brand new dawn
Where your freedom dies

I am your circus spectacle
You can’t avert your eyes
Come live in my new reality
You’ll believe the truth in lies

I got the crowd on puppet strings,
To do whatever I say.
My words fly like bullet stings
The lies winning the day

Put your faith in violence
your god on TV
You don’t need no evidence
In the land of the “free”!

Drop words like atomic bombs
Rain bullets from the sky
Follow me to the brand new dawn
Where your freedom dies

I am your circus spectacle,
You can’t avert your eyes
Come live in my new reality
You’ll believe the truth in lies

Drop words like atomic bombs
Rain bullets from the sky
Follow me to the brand new dawn
Where your freedom dies

I am your circus spectacle,
You can’t avert your eyes
Come live in my new reality
You’ll believe the truth in lies

You’ll believe the truth in lies
