Let me help you procrastinate better. You’re gonna have to wait until the two minute mark for the vocals to kick in, and then another four before it’s over, but that’s six minutes of your life filled with music instead of work, so go ahead and press play.
You’ll fall into a slick, mid-tempo groove before the track sings, “We are the ones who’ve been chosen to survive” with an honesty of the 80s that’ll keep you hanging on.
If you made it to the end of “The Outcast” (and enjoyed it!) then explore more of Manfredi Romano’s world through his German record label, Life and Death, also home to San Francisco’s Pillowtalk. His label’s name is inspired by the process of turning “‘dead’ elements into a new life, and [refers] to the hypnotic power of music used in the mesmeric processes for brain therapy.”
