The Lunar District release a new video for their new single Doomsday Dance

It’s RGM Video premiere time again and we have LA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ band The Lunar District and their quality new video for Doomsday Dance, here are a few words about the video. πŸ‘‡

Loosely based on a scene in the 2nd book of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series – where guests enjoy a meal as they watch the Universe explode – this song is a commentary on our current society and the dangers social media pose to the future of humanity. Our willingness to remain distracted and give ourselves away for the spectacle of ‘watching the universe explode’ is presented in the form of an upbeat disco tune to further illustrate that point. In the video, I wanted to juxtapose the idea of people dancing with the cold imagery of computer coding and microchips, alluding to the consent we’ve given to big tech to monopolize our time and data in exchange for constant entertainment.
