Marking the first release under the band’s own label, Empirical Music, the two sets, entitled Indifference Culture and Distraction Tactics, are as much testament to Empirical’s journey since Connection, as they are a reaction to the ‘new normal’ of the world in 2018. The EPs take the names of two compositions by Tom Farmer that comment on the twin societal evils of the rise of social media-induced narcissism and diminishing empathy for our fellow human beings – trends that leave us ill- equipped to take on the orchestrators of today’s culture wars who seek to distract us with a constant stream of fake news and unprecedented political scandal.
