The Endorphins - "Myopic Dystopia"

Boston psych-punkers The Endorphins have released a new single raging against what they regularly see on social media. "Myopic Dystopia" is a fast and angry song that still keeps plenty of melody intact. It's as trippy as much as it rocks, and while it lands on the more mainstream side of the alt-rock spectrum that's not necessarily a bad thing. It has the kind of psych groove you'd hear from early Queens of the Stone Age but with the accessibility of your favorite Foo Fighters songs. The Endorphins are the kind of band that could break out at any moment, so you're going to want to jump on this bandwagon ASAP.

Singer/guitarist Matt Bass says of the new song:

“This is one of the more personal songs on the record. It was one of those I had in my head before writing anything down. It's basically a song about my frustrations and concerns about these times. I spend way too much time dwelling on stupid shit, but there's this weird feeling of hopelessness a lot of people seem to be feeling these days, but we are so distracted by so many things to realize it. We're so overexposed to content and advertising to the point where it seems it’s created this mindless scroll of absorption we all do. It just feels like we're heading to this very gray era, algorithms are deciding everything we see; feels like we're passing into narrow visions of our individuality. All of the decisions are being made for us.”

You can listen to "Myopic Dystopia" below. Nothing Is Real is due out on November 11. For more on The Endorphins, check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
