The Girobabies - Big Society (Apocalypse) ft Loki & Mog.

This is a (sort of) review of a singular song that I was privileged to hear today.
It's not even a finished song, but it is important to me that I give readers a heads up and ask them to keep an eye out for it when the fully finished track is available to the public because some songs actually need to be heard.
Some songs go far beyond just being a tune in the background, and rather become an expression of a moment in time.
They are the voice of a section of society who are no longer asking for permission to speak, but instead are providing an unvarnished truth to be considered, and this is one of those songs.

Listening to the Sun Dog mix of the Girobabies track Big Society (Apocalypse) that features Loki and Mog is like being pushed violently thrown through the back of the wardrobe and instead of finding yourself in Narnia your picking yourself up from the rubble and gasping for breath in a dystopian landscape of frightening proportions.
Yet anyone with half a brain will hear the truth in the lyrics.
You can't look away, plug your ears, or bury your head in the sand, because this song isn't a warning of a future that occupies the distant horizon.
Half of it is rooted in today and the other half in tomorrow.
It's a hypnotically caustic appraisal of society as it is and what it is going to be.
Very few people are going to feel comfortable about this, but the Girobabies and a couple of cohorts are delivering a bitter pill that needs to be swallowed.
