Wrangler - A Situation

Prepare yourself mentally - you may start to believe the matrix is real.

Wrangler - A Situation

As everything good about the world goes up in flames, Wrangler provide a party fit for the end of time. ‘A Situation’ plays heavily on consciousness, combining outdated and primal synths with lyrics portraying a dystopian AI-lead future. This album is not for easy listening. Opener ‘Anthropocene’ is a paranoid dance track, lyrically hinting that something bad is on the horizon. ‘Anarchy of Sound’ could plausibly be the lovechild of Four Tet’s ‘Beautiful Rewind’ and Jeff Lynne’s ‘War of the Worlds’ soundtrack, simultaneously fearful yet fearless. It’s not all doom and gloom however - future classic ‘Mess’ is both sonically uplifting as are the words that hint at a technological reform. Every single moment of ‘A Situation’ feels dreadfully real and groovy as heck, so prepare yourself mentally - you may start to believe the matrix is real.
