HMLTD – Why? (video)

Dec 5 2019

UK outfit HMLTD releases the visuals for the lush sounding single track “Why?”, taken off their forthcoming album “West Of Eden” which is slated for a release via Lucky Number on February 7th 2020 and is described as being: “a daring collection of songs created to incite conversation about proposed new visions of masculinity, the decadence of western capitalism and the violence of insecurity and repression”

“A further mirror to the modern world we live in – via exploring the paradoxical loneliness that defines modern, urban life. Set in Tokyo, the world’s largest metropolitan city and with the verse written in Japanese the song talks about being surrounded by people but an ever increased alienation and detachment from surrounding, neighbours and relationships. As the song progresses, the chorus sounds like Japanese but in fact is gibberish – mimicking the vertigo of detachment. Even when one does communicate. Is anybody really listening, understanding or trying to understand?”
