Tel Aviv Document have shared a new instalment, following up to ‘Habit’. Here is ‘Hustle’, another electric and vibrating number that showcases the band’s honest approach to their songwriting and vibes inspired by highly influential bands such as Dinosaur Jr. and Fugazi.
Says vocalist Nir Ben Jacob about the track: “‘Hustle’ revolves around themes of digital addiction -spending hours online and having nothing to show for it, wasting time scrolling and swiping, while not being able to stop. The screen has become an extension of the self. Humans have now become more like plants -they need to be interconnected and depend on technology. Phones are the roots that allow us to be connected to everything else. We‘ve rooted ourselves in our modernity. Our identities can change online. We project what we want others to see. The screen has become a mirror. The phone takes away the ability to be intimate, and you are left alone with a distortion of reality. There’s the addiction of immediate gratification, the online approvals are ‘pseudo-pleasure’. This has all led to pointless compulsive behaviour.”
The new single is taken from the forthcoming Document’s album, ‘The Void Repeats’, out on November 9th. Listen below.
