Is it the future yet? Yes and no. It's always the present and always the future — maybe always the past, too, depending on what theory on the nature of time one subscribes to. All this is to say, it's weird being a human, and perhaps never weirder than in 2020-2021. That weirdness sometimes plays out as tragic, sometimes joyful, sometimes inscrutable or surreal. We're all just trying to go about our days and keep ourselves functional and something resembling happy. And but so now there's a synth-punk-pop-rock soundtrack for all of that, i.e., hope you enjoy this album.
