This is a synthwave EP inspired by the recent US elections. The night of and the morning after I was hit by depression at the realization that our government would be run by people who consider me delusional at best, subhuman at worst, but it quickly turned from depression and fear into fury and creativity. This EP was written, recorded, and mixed in the span of a little over a week and while it could most certainly be a little more polished, I've grown quite attached to it. It's probably the fastest I've ever finished an actual project, but it totally works.
I'm also gonna be donating all the proceeds after Bandcamp and Paypal's fees to the Trevor Project, and while I can't match it dollar per dollar, for every $10 I get from it I'll add a dollar of my own money to put in my part. The Trevor Project is a non profit that focuses mostly on suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth, they have several hotlines to call if you're struggling with suicidal thoughts and IIRC they even have a number you can text if you can't call. As a queer person myself the fact that something like this exists is such a wonderful thing, and while I myself have never taken advantage of their services I implore any of you who might be going through a rough time, especially after the election results, to give them a call. I also implore those of you who are not, but have someone in your life who might be, to toss a couple bucks in for the EP and help the cause.
I won't bore you guys with any more details, I'm just gonna let the music speak for itself. Hope you all enjoy.
