OXYGEN THIEF – Get ‘Lost in the Post-‘ With Virtual Reality Themed Video/Single

OXYGEN THIEF – Get ‘Lost in the Post-‘ With Virtual Reality Themed Video/Single

Oxygen ThiefDrawing influence from Charlie Brooker’s Netflix-hit, Black Mirror, Bristol-based alternative-rock trio, Oxygen Thief have shared the new video/single for ‘Lost In The Post-‘, taken from the bands upcoming new album Confusion Species, set for release on November 16th through Xtra Mile Recordings.

Speaking on the new video, frontman Barry Dolan said, “The idea came from binge-watching Black Mirror, thinking about how many venues are under threat of closure (like The Exchange itself, where we shot most of it) and how a lot of people do online shows now…what would happen if we all played/attended gigs in VR in the future?

“Brooker’s show would result in everyone getting horrifically injured, our director (Owain Paciuszko) and I didn’t think that sounded like much fun, so we took a different approach.”

Lyrically, ‘Lost In The Post-‘ sees Dolan lean on the themes of trying to maintain your humanity, and mental wellbeing, while being bombarded by misinformation, propaganda and outright lies.
