Bokassa have announced their new album All Out Of Dreams is set for release on 16th February 2024 via Indie Recordings.
“All Out Of Dreams is an album where the feeling of resignation is present on several of the album’s tracks. Whether it deals with one’s own failures, maybe you feel the system failed you, perhaps because of failed government policies, or that you’ve just given up on it all,” they explain. “The common denominator is that everyone you encounter, or hear from in the lyrics have lost hope, which is something the album’s title – All Out Of Dreams – alludes to. The name of the album could also be seen as direct reference to our own career, and the dream of owning our own private island in the Pacific. Unfortunately the masses have yet to develop good taste in music, so that dream is rather non-existent at this time.”
The band have shared the visualiser for the title track which can be seen below!
Speaking about the single, the band says “When most things seem mediocre and most meetings feel like you’re just regurgitating empty small talk, you might as well just avoid it all. So it’s a song about trying to avoid socialising with other people and meanwhile escaping into your own mind and hobbies, like gaming, as referenced in the 8-bit intro. Kind of a “voluntary loner anthem” if you will. A song for everyone who feels like Stan in the South Park episode “You’re Getting Old”!”
