Foreign Air – Lying

Oct 26 2017

In the digital age, it’s hard to avoid Internet trolls. That’s the topic of Foreign Air’s new single “Lying’. The song finds the nomadic alt-rock duo piqued by a repeated source of inspiration — technology — both the good and the bad. The theme of dishonesty and cruelty in the protagonist is a way into the group’s fixation w/ the rampant Internet trolls in Trump’s America, anchored on the repeated mantra “I just want to be mean to someone else.” Can we say same here?
