Deva St. John just released the single ‘The Information Age‘ which takes a look at how social media affects our lives. It’s an energetic and catchy song that’s as gritty as the negative impact social media can have on our mental health. Here’s what Deva St. John had to say about ‘The Information Age‘:
I wrote ‘The Information Age’ after spending way too long comparing myself to other people. I was beginning to feel my self worth deteriorate with every passing post; watching people I love allow misinformation to cloud their judgement, while knowing the media I’m consuming is probably just as manipulative; seeing the growth and decay of important news due to a lack of any public attention span; watching entire gigs through an audience member’s phone screen. It’s become so easy to distract ourselves. I wanted to remind people that a hive mind isn’t the answer, especially when your Queen Bee is a sewer rat.
Indeed it has become so easy to distract ourselves and that’s what the powers that be want. The world needs change yet change can’t occur in 24hrs. Once it’s no longer trending it’s no longer on the hive mind and thus any real consequence or change gets further from realization. It’s an interesting topic to address in this format but perhaps it can spark the flames of change! You can listen to ‘The Information Age‘ down below.
