The London-based band Maximum Love started crafting the lush dreamscape of Zoa Constrictor by taking sounds from previous albums, weaving them into a wholly new fabric.
The album was inspired by a wide variety of sources, ranging from the mythology of William Blake to Vaporwave.
We thought the genre of Vaporwave was worth a proper consideration; the world has been tainted by commercial motives, justifying profitable beliefs at the detriment of sincerity. Even your memories are not safe anymore; just think about it: How many memories have a brand name attached to them?
Are we so entangled in commerce that nothing has sanctity anymore? Is our experience limited by what brands offer us? Can we ever escape the shackles of our own perception, or must we burn it all down to the ground?
