Of the song, Robinson says: “In ‘Bloody Future,’ I played on the idea of a hot and sweaty dance club to explore global warming and the changes in culture and media I’ve seen within my lifetime. I am keying in on our lack of critical focus when distracted by something that goes over easy.
I’ve noticed myself not paying attention to critical information when the music or surrounding visual elements are alluring, beautiful, or fun. Our society often operates in the same way, concealing insidious issues like environmental decline while satisfying with entertainment and distraction. When it all boils over, we’re left shocked and dazed.
My lyrics explore this blissfully unaware feeling of still being entranced before coming to our senses.
Writing-wise, I pictured in my mind the excesses of electronic music festivals, lavish hotel pool parties, and bottle service nightclubs.
I’m a 90s kid, but when I was a teenager, people were really into being “80’s babies” and representing for their decade, so I thought it was fun to explore that memory.”
In conjunction with this song and video, Robinson wrote the poem below:
2060 NURSERY RHYME
THAT SUN BAKED EVERY INCH OF ME
LIGHT LIKE DUST
ACROSS THE PLAINS
LIFTED AND NEVER SEEN AGAIN
AND DRY BELOW!
WITHOUT THEIR SNOW
OF HAZE AND SMOKE
WITH ALL OUR HOPES
