In Hearts Wake release new single and video Dystopia. The single is the fourth release from the band’s upcoming carbon offset album KALIYUGA out August 7, 2020.
Dystopia takes a new musical approach for the band, with compelling drive, progression and layered melodic intricacy. The track, like the album, is inspired by the Four Ages of Humanity.
“Dystopia speaks of the fourth cycle and present age of the world known in Hinduism as ‘Kaliyuga’. ‘Kaliyuga’ is often referred to as the dark age due to the predominate traits of discord, disconnection, destruction, materialism, oppression, cruelty and fear” says vocalist Jake Taylor.
“We look for the cause to cast the blame, but humanity need only look itself in the mirror. It is time for us to face and overcome the issues and challenges that currently threaten all life on Earth.”
Dystopia offers a way forward, by encouraging us to question and see through the deadening status quo. Inspiring us to imagine what we are really capable of if we seize the opportunity to grow and change the way we live on the earth and with each other.
Dystopia’s video takes the viewer through the different age cycles. Check it out below.
