With their latest album LAUNCH FLY LAND steadily climbing the alt charts and their tour Dreamers aren’t planning on taking a break it seems. Today they released a new track “DESENSITIZE”. The song sounds like something straight out of a Black Mirror episode (sorry Ashley O, but I think Dreamers are coming for you) even down to the creepy cool cover art. “DESENSITIZE” sounds more like bands debut album This Album Does Not Exist in comparison to the more poppy sophomore LAUNCH FLY LAND. An evolution of something the band has done before “DESENSITIZE” is fun listen that will be sure to evoke some creepy vibes.
Nick Wold, explains the track stating, “The song is about all the crazy and horrible things in the world that we somehow get used to and even forget about. Lying thieving political leaders, rape war and violence, advertisers constantly selling to us, preying on our vanity and worst instincts. In this song, I’m not always singing as me, but as a corporate moneyed interest who wants nothing more than for you to acclimate, to not notice, to desensitize.” DREAMERS’ demand accountability from a society that regularly sugar coats the negatives in today’s world. The hard-hitting lyrics, which grapple with the political landscape, self-realization and more, are sung over a fiery guitar riff that emphasizes society’s need for us to “desensitize.”
