Mystified by Historian's "I Need a Future"


historian bannerHistorian weave a fresh tapestry of tone in "I Need a Future," amidst sounds that lead us into our past.

Orchestral, fluid and topsy-turvy, this spacey song takes us on a trip with no destination.

This song feels like time-travel.

We squeeze at space slipping past our ears in reversed string arrangements - unwinding in the void.

Insistently, the chug of the drumbeat carries on amidst this chaos.

Our journey has just begun.


Psychedelia meets the final frontier at full force - giving us glimpses of a future we couldn't have conceived of.

Our time-travelling poet closes his eyes. "I'll shine my light, but who will ever know?"

A little light in a sea of darkness; he travels on through pitch of night.

Deeper into madness we meander.

The whole of the track now whistles harmoniously in reverse.

"Is this just some riddle?"
