The Zolas dropped their brand new single and music video called “Ultramarine”.
The track forms part of collection of apocalyptic songs that the band will be releasing each month this summer called Z DAYS.
NOTE: The music video is a homage and style to Wong Kar-Wai’s Fallen Angel. (I wonder if they used a wide-angle since WKW used it mostly for the whole film)
About the track:
“Ultramarine” is a psychedelic fantasy about throwing our phones off a bridge and going out to look for real connection.
In 2020, we’ve all been feeling the aches of internet addiction more than ever. It’s like an abusive marriage we can’t quite quit.
Our brains aren’t evolved to process the knowledge of every human rights injustice happening on earth at this moment. Or that 16 people we know are having the perfect summer weekend while we’re here scrolling. Who can sleep after staring into a hot blue beam of pure information right before we close our eyes?
Google Maps makes it impossible to get lost and yet we’re feeling more lost now than ever. Time to pull the plug on all that and find our own way back.
