Real talk on 21st century distractions rolls over rock with a punk pivot in Penny Mob’s “21st Century Kids”.
Great classic rock sound to turn your frowns upside downs… 🙂
“Comparing everyone in the world…”
Fingering a phone. You know it’s wrong.
You can’t leave her alone. Siri is serious.
And your date? Disappeared… A message appears.
A greeting; reminder. If she’s meeting you. Mind her.
“Control the human race without a trace…”
Playfully poignant and jarringly genuine, “21st Century Kids” is an upbeat epithet tossed to this century’s attendant techno-life troubles. An expose on this age’s swamp of isolation, insincerity and self-centered insecurity…
“21st Century Kids” lifts Lower Than Atlantis rock vibes off the sea floor and pours them over guitar-driven The Guess Who rhythm. The words play nicely over the instruments, taunting us to listen closer with effect-laden non-lexical vocables.
Alarming as a ghost, a low spectrum spectral voice bridges the gap from mid-song to coda. Alarm quickly yields to intrigue though, as the voice recites its illicit mandate with amusing menace. A powerful point is made as a pointed tongue tucks into a cheek.
“21st Century Kids” may relay rocking revelations on humanity’s future, but it’s also an awesome, anthemic rock tune. Turn it up and enjoy.
