Let’s explore the pros and cons of social media. On the one hand, it’s proved to be an invaluable tool to stay connected with friends and family during a worldwide pandemic. On the other hand, it can serve to enhance the perceived differences in each other. If we’re not meeting with each other on a daily or weekly basis and getting genuine insight into people’s lives, it can be easy to become lost in the “manufactured” appearance of normality.
Wolf Saga explores these perils in ‘Alice In Nowhere Land’, a single lifted from his recently released self-titled EP. The single “explores the reliance on technology and social media that we’ve come to accept as commonplace” however, this serious subject matter is juxtaposed by light-hearted indiepop tunes and unjudging lyrics. However, Wolf Saga is clearly not completely against social media as the indie musician manages to strike a positive balance on Facebook. He advises fans: “Appreciate the little things, and never lose hope. I can’t see my grandma this holiday in person, but I’m glad we can video chat.”
Pushing for authenticity and eager to see a change in the world, Wolf Saga is using his skills at hand to encourage others to do the same. Catch it all in the Wolf Saga LP for a selection of other profound songs. For now, here’s ‘Alice In Nowhere Land’.
