Worker & Parasite have already let us know they are the party for the people. You might remember their bold lyricism and distinctive sound from our recent feature of their track and video Realpolitik.
Those who enjoyed Realpolitik may enjoy browsing the Worker & Parasite discography and will certainly love this latest offering from the party. Manifest Destiny invites us further into their world and reveals more of the party members.
Stylistically, words have been used similarly though in a more fractured and jarring way and the result is highly addictive.
DREAM DREAM OF A WORLD IF YOU CAN DREAM
This is the kind of music for a world standing at the intersection of utopia and dystopia, trying to decide which way it will go.
A WORLD WE MAY YET ONE DAY SEE
The aesthetics don’t give it away, you need to be paying close attention to the party message and reading between the lines to recognise that this is not a blind submission into dystopia but rather an argument for optimism.
AND IF WE DREAM AND IF WE’RE CLEAN WE CAN CREATE A WORLD BEYOND OUR WILDEST DREAMS
Radically optimistic in its message, the aesthetics whilst deliberately not painting the picture of this proposed world instead amplify the sense of urgency of the times.
This in combination with the somewhat parodical-political approach to the messaging conventions ensures that we know this is not a time to stand idly by.
As the song progresses, the perspective shifts and we are presented with a darker perspective than the hopeful beginnings.
BEHOLD THE PERFECT ENEMY
WE WILL HELP YOU SEE HOSTILITY
The journey resolves with a declaration for reclamation.
RECLAIM OUR DESTINY (History is a mystery)
Worker & Parasite are for listeners and viewers who want to challenge ideas and read objectively extensively.
We will be watching with anticipation for more from Worker & Parasite.
