VATS, “Melting Culture”

Post Author:

VATS has been working on some stellar new material for us, namely the new track “Melting Culture”, which we’ve got up for premiere exclusively on IMPOSE. A follow up to their first single and title track off their upcoming album Green Glass Room, “Melting Culture” wows us with heavy guitar riffs as the band verbally disagrees with modern mechanization. The song is a heavy, dark commentary on the way that technology monopolizes our every day lives and lends itself to our culture of instant gratification–or, in the more eloquent words of VATS, “makes you dumb.” It’s delivered almost like you’ve run into a very well put-together protest on the streets of New York, with the same amount of raw, incredible energy.

We can’t wait to see it performed live.

“A lot of us feel the burden of technology dominating our lives,” admits the band, “but we realize there’s nothing to be done about it and we move on. This song is about all the old TV’s, computers and phones that become the garbage piles in our neighborhood.”
