This song is a response to the ever-increasing human disconnection that’s caused by social media addiction and content binging.
Our society is rapidly, and radically, changing, because of the tools that we use to stay “connected.” We isolate ourselves in these bubbles to escape reality, while alienating ourselves from meaningful relationships and from those who can speak truth and hope into our lives, all while being manipulated by people of “influence” on how we should be, look, feel, and think.
“Selfie,” from the upcoming full-length album, “Space Case: An Apollo [inner] Space Mission.”
APOLLO IS A PROFESSIONAL SPACE CADET CURRENTLY MAROONED ON TERRA (IN)FIRMA WHILE PURSUING THE EVER ELUSIVE FEELING OF BEING COMFORTABLE IN HIS OWN SKIN.
An ever-changing, yet constant, figure of planet Earth’s thriving human community for over [unintelligible chatter] years, ap0ll0, for as long as he can remember, has been on mission to find out where he came from, who he really is, and, most importantly, “why?”
Born off-world, but raised in North Bergen, NJ (40.8015° N, 74.0139° W), ap0ll0 currently resides in the human outpost of Atlanta. After completing full assimilation, but nearly depleting his life support as a result of pursuing dark endeavors, ap0ll0 received and downloaded an encrypted transmission containing sacred revelations directly from the source of his creation.
Zealous and confident that ultimate truth is now coursing through his being, ap0ll0 has embarked on a new assignment; To chronicle his voyage and the unshakable conclusions about himself and the world he lives in, while simultaneously fulfilling a once seemingly unattainable dream of bearing his soul through audio-visual artistry, all while navigating a perilous journey to reach his true home and commune with the source of his genesis. This current iteration finds ap0ll0rojas transmitting his message through raw, lyrically dense verses and speaker rattling beats on his debut album, “Space Case: an ap0ll0 [inner] space mission”.
