kurt.riley+praxis releases new single & darkly futuristic music video, "Free"!

Fourth chapter, out of the upcoming album, released from kurt.riley+praxis.


"Free" is the new single and video of kurt.riley+praxis. With a sense of a cyberesque NIN mixed with a Cure influenced guitar riff and melody, kurt.riley+praxis manages to send the massage of the concept album that is coming up to everyone willing to listen to it and feel it.

"New York based Metapop band kurt.riley+praxis has released the official music video for their darkly synth pop infused new single, "Free." The fourth track from their upcoming, science fiction themed opus, Chrome Empire, "Free" was preceded by the releases "FTR SHK," "Say You Love Me," and "Evergreen." Using the story of an android that has gained self-awareness, the Chrome Empire album addresses topics such as climate change, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality by way of a sci-fi narrative and hook-laden songwriting."

“’Free’ is my attempt to encapsulate what it feels like to be born on the morning after Fukuyama’s ‘end of history’ – in the afterglow of the Cold War, born during the consumerist apex of the Nineties in the West…watching the towers fall on television…receiving a bleak inheritance of climate change, irrevocable student loan debt, social inequality, and increasing totalitarianism. Feeling trapped amidst the end of empire, within circumstances one feels helpless to control or improve. Even that last inch – the toaster, TV, and steel-belted radials of Howard Beale’s – even that isn’t left to us, as a mid-century, middle-class existence simply becomes too expensive for all but the upper echelons of society. And so many of us are too exhausted to be mad as hell anymore. We’re just heartbroken.” - kurt.riley+praxis
