UK duo Black Futures brings us an explosion of ecstasy along with surrealistic visuals that celebrates life and all the renegades out there in “Tunnel Vision.” The track is an upcoming taste of their debut album Never Not Nothing, which will be out on August 30thvia Music For Nations. The video, created by 3D animation artist Sam Gilmore, is an allegory for breaking social norms and living as mavericks. Watch below:

“‘Tunnel Vision’ is a love song to existence. A profession of absolute obsession and dedication to music, art, nature, progress and loved ones. An expression of the constant destructive will to create, making you a violent collision of contradicting devotion. The frustrating dichotomy between existing as a human now in 2019 and the battle not to destroy everything in your wake. Personally this is something that consumes us with equal parts hope and despair with every moment.

“Tunnel Vision is also a tribute. A sonic totem to the obsession of radicals that push the boundaries of politics, rebellion, altruism, conservation, science, design…. pioneers breaking us from stasis, plucking us from our current norm on a quest to a gentler future. Often it can feel like you are alone on the edges of society constantly swimming against the current state of hyper-capitalist zombification. Struggling to exist as yourself within the confines of our society. You are not alone. Keep pushing. Keep true… Revolution is coming. Onwards to Newtopia!”
