From the release Life Can Be Cruel (LT081)
Set on a Dark Earth, non-human lifeforms occupy one of the last buildings left standing. Their dance begins to siliconize their surroundings, subsequently activating the turret clock and infusing new vitality into the former inhabitants of the planet. “Life Can Be Cruel” is the lead single from the EP of the same name by producer and DJ, False Witness.The accompanying music video was created by NYC artist Jessica Wilson.
