Song Of The Day: Painted Zeros – Commuter Rage

A little bit of laughter is appreciated these days. So kudos to Don Giovanni Records for making me laugh last night as I came across the following tweet:

As someone who has enjoyed a fair amount of the music put out by that label, I would say that this assessment of their audience (or at least me) is not entirely inaccurate. And so in honour of this tweet which amused me, I will now shine the spotlight on Don Giovanni, and specifically on Painted Zeros.

The band, led by Katie Lau, is set to release its new album When You Found Forever on May 29 via Don Giovanni. “Commuter Rage,” the lead single off the album, is a catchy piece of indie rock with lyrics that express Lau’s frustration with “this toxic culture” that we live in and her hopes that things could change if only she were in charge:

If I were socialized like these jerks who believe that they’re gifts from god,
and my words and opinions were half as heard as yours, man,

I could transform this
toxic culture
to be your
benevolent overlord
I’d take over
this shitty world
and be your
benevolent overlord.

I, for one, welcome our new Painted Zeros overlords. Bring it on.

Be Sociable, Share!
