What's the point in Saving the World! if the world isn't worth saving? I think we all have days where we think everything is so completely fucked up that to try and change anything is pointless.
Well this week I'm giving you an incredible gift, one to remind you how much good stuff there is to get involved in on this big ol' stupid piece of rock we call Earth. 'Mirage', the collaborative work of four incredibly talented characters, is a captivating listening experience that brings to mind visions of expansive vistas, vast, open landscapes, and breathtaking panoramas. The use of instrumentation is tastefully exotic, and both vocal performances are executed flawlessly. It's the perfect reminder of all the beauty that sits in the world just waiting to be experienced.
Lyrically, 'Mirage' ties in wonderfully with the idea that sometimes we feel like we're wasting time, chasing illusions, running after nothing more than a mirage. But there's a subtle beauty in this idea, because sometimes it's worth chasing an ideal instead of settling for a reality that's unfulfilling and y'know, boring.
So maybe the world we want to save isn't anything other than a dream. But I'd take that over not trying at all!
Have a great week kids x

About the curator - Matt Jenko
Matt Jenko is a university postgraduate and music producer with an unhealthy obsession with Rick & Morty and all things Game of Thrones. When he’s not in the studio (a rare occurrence these days), he’s fueling his passion for music either on the net or out in the real world. He likes being out in the nature (in the least strenuous capacity though, let’s be real here) and chilling with his cat, and he’s also pretty proud of his mammoth collection of books that he’s never read.
