MOIST, "End of the Ocean," 2021

Posted on April 8, 2021

The title track from rock band Moist’s forthcoming album, End of the Ocean, due Oct. 1, tackles human consumption and its devastating results on the planet. The video uses footage from Mateo Guez’ 2009 film Off World, shot at Manila’s “Smokey Mountain” landfill once home to 30,000 people (it was removed in 2009). In the press release for the new single, frontman David Usher warns of people’s desire to make money “at the expense of the planet,” including the latest non-fungible token trend. “Can we just slow down on the love affair with the NFT’s, at least until we can make them climate-neutral?” Buy the song hereKaren Bliss
