When talking about the new album the duo says, “Inspired by a combination of current events and technological breakthroughs, R.U.R. imagines a future in which humans have been replaced by artificial intelligence. To capture this dissonance between the natural and artificial, our production choices include detuned analog instruments paired with human vocals, polyrhythms comprised of body percussion and plant pots, and samples ranging from rainforest insects to outer space sounds. Hopefully these choices make our album resonate better with listeners.”

Parson James Unveils Official Video For “Only You.”

On the backstory behind the video’s concept he continues. “This song is so close to me, so it was important that visually it was represented in a way that felt exactly like the sentiment. I was in a toxic relationship that I felt bound by. There was most definitely love and passion but at a certain point it became completely co-dependent and the comfort was the most toxic part of it.” Parson explains. “I came to Dano and told him I wanted to act as sort of a ghost in this situation that was dwindling and that the ultimate sentiment should be one of finding the strength to leave something so familiar, in order to find yourself or that piece of you that has been stunted in growth.”

KILLEN (NYC) shares music video for “Invisible Guy”

Combining muscular riffs that flex with the strength of classic rock bands, KILLEN’s songs are sordid, smoke-shrouded tales populated with renegades, hustlers, and the destitute, brought to life by pulp lyricism and back-alley guitar licks.
