According to frontman Kris Warren, the intensive process of creating "Executive Functions" during the pandemic offered insight into the modern condition of information overload and the struggle to cope. He describes the album as a document of his experience trying to navigate modern life in the age of social media and nonstop digital connection.
Kris explains the album title and the band's adopted concept of becoming a "post-post punk corporation. He goes on to say, "The idea came to me to form myself (and by extension the band) as a corporation, really as a form of protection in an insane world! There are more subtle motivations but this is the core emotional truth - the songs of ‘Executive Functions’, in essence, are like faculties of one mind and the attempt to cope with the onslaught of modern life, placing myself under protection as C.E.O. of a corporation enables me to roam freely as an artist".
This album is a stunning sonic journey that dares you to close your eyes, press play - and come along for the wild ride. Pol-Sky has created an instant indie classic - one that will stay on high rotation for years to come. If you only discover one new album this year, make sure it's this one.
