Australia’s DREGG are back with new single, “Context,” in collaboration with NYC rap duo City Morgue. SosMula and ZillaKami’s aggressive delivery seamlessly intensifies DREGG’s signature cocktail of heavy guitar riffs, thunderous bass lines and snarling vocals.
The song arrives alongside a music video by Neck Up Collective, which features a surreal animated world where the misunderstood main character suffers the negative consequences of virality.
Explaining the inspiration behind the track, the band states, “In a world where information spreads faster than a virus it’s incredibly easy to manipulate truth. This new phenomena of instantaneous, widespread shared knowledge has opened the flood gate for those who do not seek objective truth and has allowed them to muddy the waters and alter what is and what isn’t. This affects the entire globe from news programs pushing their own political agendas right down to the blue collar worker losing their job for saying the wrong thing. While we must hold those around us responsible for their wrong doings, we shouldn’t pass our full judgment until we’ve been presented context.”
