Silent Planet have released their new single Panopticon, out now via UNFD. The track marks the band’s first new music since their 2020 single Trilogy and Redux edition of The Night God Slept.
“Panopticon paints a dystopian view of the future – one where technological advances have pacified the human spirit and made us apathetic in the face of an increasingly malevolent, post-singularity AI that was developed under the premise of security… ultimately becoming a tyrannical overlord,” explains frontman Garrett Russell. “To communicate the story of humanity and its traditions being outmoded, we challenged ourselves to write a song with no guitar. Using only bass, electronic elements, and percussion – we developed this track over the course of the summer.”
