ANDROID LUST AND COLLIDE – “ARE YOU LISTENING”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
“Cross your heart and hope to rise”
A brand new track to maybe bring a spark of optimism in an otherwise bleak time.
Shikhee from Android Lust & kaRIN from Collide have teamed up to create “Are You Listening.” Typically, the two women spend time discussing the ills of the world and numerous social injustices, while sharing a vision of a more just world. But at a holiday party last year the two decided to take a stab at working on a track together. “Are You Listening” happened.
The song started off on a dark note. They were trading ideas back and forth when the pandemic hit and the track took on a different direction, opting for a more hopeful message in a moody ambient electronic soundscape.
There’s also a video for the track directed by Tas Limur.
Artist Quote (kaRIN)
“Shikhee and I have been friends for many years now. Typically, our concerned conversations usually go to what is going on in the world. When we have time, we go out and peacefully protest together with our hopes of the world becoming a better place for humanity. I am very grateful to know Shikhee as a human being, and as a very good friend. During the holidays, before the world went crazy I asked her to send me a track that I could mess around with–she did and I tried to channel what I felt about our many discussions together. Ultimately, I would say the track feels dark with hope–which I feel sums it up pretty well.”
