A Walk in the Colony - June 29
A Walk in the Colony is the final release from Escape Goat's System Upgrade EP. Like they did with their Free EP, the band closes out this one with a departure from their usual funk rock weirdness. A Walk in the Colony is a prog rock meditation on randomness and system cycles. Darkly, it acknowledges that we may not have the power we think or wish we had. Society and the world have a way of dismantling the best laid plans, good or bad. But the song ends with a grim resolve to overcome our sense of helplessness. We might not control much in life, but we can control the influence we contribute.
