UK space punks Black Futures promotes anti-narcissism in their new banger “Me.TV” featuring the monologue from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. Filled with psychedelic-infused explosions and stamped with the seal of anarchy, “Me.TV” addresses the self-centered epidemic of humanity. Even though the song feels like a dynamite, it spreads a message of kindness and compassion. Enjoy below:

“‘Turn Down Your ME.TV & Turn Up For Your Community’ is one of our expedition club mottos. We are all part of this vast, awe-inspiring web of existence. A community of humans, flora, fauna and seemingly vast expanses of space and time. In these times of division, inequality and turmoil, we want to encourage our fellow privileged earthlings to beat the grip of narcissism and see themselves as a part of something vastly more complex and beautiful. As Brian Eno would call it, the ‘Wide Me’ and the ‘Long Now’

The track is from the duo’s upcoming debut album, which they haven’t disclosed much details yet. But you can always go see them onstage and ask them in person – that’s how peer pressure works:
