…..a melodic harpsichord and synth-driven look into what sounds like a bleak future. This dystopian look at what could very well be America’s next phase conjures images of a Hip-Hop version of A Clockwork Orange,1984 or one of those dark, technologically-fueled tomorrows – something which we are on the fast track to.
