OC 80’s second release continues to explore the psychic landscape of the threshold between the current world order and whatever will come after it. While making this album we were thinking about environmental collapse, animality, the force of habit, the diffusion of blame, and the inconceivable scale of what has been lost to systems of oppression.
Young Nation, like Shelter, is an intertextual artifact.
