Songs in the Key of Orange Alert
Songs in the Key of Orange Alert is Audio Fiction's debut EP album, reflects the tenacity of life and the desire to hold onto the things that always were, even when everything is supposed to be different. The record's title is inspired by the New York 'terror alert' status under which the songs were written. While no other track on the EP is as overtly political as the anti-war anthem 'Tick Tock,' each song deals in one way or another with the anxiety endemic to our place and time. Whether it be in context of romantic relationships ('Bless Me,' 'Impenetrable,' 'Wanna Be Wild'), unemployment ('Don't Do It'), or all-purpose existential angst with a New York time-crunch twist ('Race the Hourglass'), all the tracks have an underlying uncertainty in common. This, coupled with Audio Fiction's sardonic wit and tongue-in-cheek humor, make for an EP that is unique, compelling, entertaining and danceable. Produced by Mike Barry & AF @ Laughing Buddha Studios NYC Mastered by Mark Wilder @ Sony Studios.
