grey vinyl version - “Youth Of Tomorrow” speaks of today’s disenchanted young. Social media motivated while feeling ripped off and still under control of their elder's corporate ideals, and rigidly controlled system. Comprising the classic 80s aestheticism of their analog synth based sound with tribal beats, and production of the modern digital age. “The song is a cynical, but celebratory, anthem,” says singer Darrin Huss. “It engages with today’s disenchanted youth, a demographic nostalgic for the 80s but looking towards an increasingly monetized future.”
“Truth Or Consequence” is no slouch B-Side either. Instead we have a song over 5 years in the making. Beginning as “Life on Trial” in respect to the Bradley Manning court case, and now reflecting on the freedom of said whistleblower, subsequently known as Chelsea Manning who's sentence was commuted before the end of the Obama administration. The lyrics consider protests and survival within the Trump era. Dieselgate, Twitter Trolls, and social unrest.
Vocally Darrin has reached new heights in his abilities throughout Psyche’s latest live performances, and it definitely shows on the new recordings. Stefan Rabura with his exceptional sense of sonic abilities, and intuitive soundscaping is the perfect match for Darrin’s brother Stephen, who left us just as Psyche began their renaissance through their 30th anniversary releases of their 80s masterpieces on ArtofFact Records.
