Enter the Dystopic Industrial Visions of JEROME “2050”

As I sat down to watch the new single from industrial duo Jerome entitled “2050,” the bleak filming set to a darkly resting heartbeat immediately intrigued me. I wonder if before they wrote this song they visited 2050.earth? Because this song is a lullaby for a lost world. It reminds me that we’re always at a turning point in our present. Will we accept the crumbling of our toxic, exploitative systems and begin to walk a path to compassion and acceptance, first and foremost of ourselves? Or will we persist in drowning in distraction until it’s inconceivable to meet a compatible human anywhere other than on an app?

Jerome’s “2050” seems to be an exploration of where our current path leads. A future of isolation in the physical and connection through tech. A place where birds have choked on their song and we have sold every piece of our data that made us animals. All of this dystopia is encapsulated in a mesmerizing electronic composition, the vocals pulsating and robotic. LP2 is out November 19th on Maple Death Recordspre-order it here. Right now watch our premiere of the official video for “2050” below.
