Hey Folks! Trust the Mask dive into dystopia with glitchy cyber-pop single ‘Otaku’
Beginning last month with the distinctive and synth-intensive, alt pop single ‘Will you come?’, now, Trust the Mask share their second slice of dynamic synth action, in the form of the glitch infused, futuristic cyber-pop single and accompanying visual ‘Otaku’.
Taken from the Japanese language, Otaku translates to a person or group of people that eschew human interactions in favour of video games and anime. It describes someone who is obsessed with computing, technology or certain aspects of popular culture to the detriment of their social skills.
A proposed dystopia that eventually becomes reality, the refrain, in pure Trust the Mask style, lets us glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel. Overflowing with waves of analog synths, incisive drums and snares from the 80’s, ‘Otaku’ is accompanied with a mesmerising visual, draped in mysticism.
