Listen: Aporia - Bad Faith (UTR Premiere)

Tuesday 17th November, 2015 9:17AM

A contemplative new single has been unveiled by Aporia, featuring contributions from Fazerdaze and Lawrence Goodwin (Cheats, Career Girls). Titled 'Bad Faith', the dreamy, slow-burning song takes its lyrical roots in philosophical thought, as the Auckland-based musician explains: "The song is meant to be like ‘funeral pop’, super slow and moving and reflects some of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir’s ideas around one disowning their own inherent freedom and living in-authentically," he says. "I was thinking a lot about how us humans are influenced from outside forces to take on false values and self-deceive, therefore living in bad faith."

The musician, whose real name is Mitchell O'Sullivan, says it is the first song he ever played with a band before taking it away and to record the majority of it himself in his Arch Hill bedroom and his parent's house in Waihi. "In saying that, I had quite a few collaborators on this track with Amelia Murray (Fazerdaze) and Hana Judd providing backing vocals, Lawree Goodwin playing some guitar and JY Lee playing an assortment of saxophone layers that makes up the outro," he says. 'Bad Faith' features on Aporia's Heaven Force Early Fall EP that is available on cassette via Prison Tapes and his Bandcamp page from today. Check it out below...
