The new album Awake (2018) takes quite a different direction from the previous release. 2017's The Misinformation Age was intentionally somewhat subdued; Not just due to kicking the dust off of this creative process, but also because that was the mood. Feeling depleted, or a profound sadness, perhaps. A realization that the dystopian future that we feared in the 90s was inevitable. A year later, the mood has shifted... Time to come out punching with quicker rhythms and bigger guitars. SoB's trademark vocals bounce between quirky new wave beats, synths and 90s guitars. More desperate yet ironically more optimistic.
These are the days to stay Awake. - Földi (2018)
