Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, the popular concept of “the future” was driven largely by utopian aesthetics: robotic household servants, flying cars, white domed cities and, perhaps most iconically, monorails. Having spent a large part of their musical careers in the post-Reagan era dystopian hellscape known as industrial music, Tyler Newman and Paul Savio decided to get back to basics and explore a more stripped down style of electronic music.

After more than a decade of recording and touring as members of Battery Cage [Metropolis Records], the idea was to capture as much realtime performance as possible, with no vocals and no guitars to determine the shape and sound of the songs. Aesthetically driven by a retro-futurist perspective, they put together ten songs that encapsulate the idea of an advanced civilization that never truly existed. From the pounding rhythms of ‘Grind My Gears’ to the final horizons of ‘Mosquito Action’, each song is it’s own station on your trip into our collective memory of a sparkling domed future.
