Premiere: The All Seeing Hand Share Smouldering Single 'Royal Oil'

Thursday 12th July, 2018 1:24PM

Wellington genre-smashers The All Seeing Hand are back in a big way, their new album Syntax Error is dropping early August in tandem with a nationwide tour, and they've now unveiled the record's lead single 'Royal Oil', which we're thrilled to premiere for you here. The song eschews aural pyrotechnics for deep diving, brain-damaged grooves, with vocalist Jonny Marks intoning over a smouldering post-apocalyptic wasteland of sound created by electronics wizard Alphabethead and percussionist Ben Knight. The band shared a few words on their tightly coiled track and forthcoming collection...

"'Royal Oil' is the first single to be released from the All Seeing Hand’s forthcoming album 'Syntax Error'; it tempts you to buy the seductive tale of off planet resource exploitation and the infinite abundance achievable for those visionaries with the power to make it happen.

We live in a time where a satellite disco ball joins the carcass of a car as decorations for our planet’s aura. Corporates and lawyers are exporting capitalism out to engulf all space, asserting flags of greed and vanity are the natural order, already flying in places as yet unreached.

Although the story is bleak, we are left with a melodic line that doesn’t sing this false ecology; with ears open we can sing to the stars with hope, we can transform our egos to embrace a future full of explorers of wonder and humility.

We are living a Syntax Error. The Program is broken. Let us take this opportunity to change the code."
