Fact Pattern releases satirical music video for 'Retail Therapy'
Rising industrial metal faction Fact Pattern has released a brand-new and surprisingly satirical music video for their song ‘Retail Therapy’. As guessed, the song targets consumerism, aggressive capitalism, and the fear of not keeping up with the latest trends. Rather than working to improve on ourselves over a long period of time, media urges us to find quick-fix solutions by spending, buying, or gaining products that we generally don’t need. Fact Pattern says it in their own words: The delusion may initially satisfy our cravings, but eventually the false exterior deteriorates. You can stream the video directly below.
The music video features parodies of shopping channels that were (and still are) common on cable television. It even shows that creepy phone / face mask that was advertised so long ago that can, coincidentally, be used in the average home invasion film.
‘Retail Therapy’ comes off of Fact Pattern’s most recent EP “From Where You’re Hiding” which released on November 12th, 2021 via Re:Mission Entertainment. The album is currently available in both digital and limited-edition CD formats. You can stream / purchase the album HERE.
I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
