SONG PICK: Jane Bonis – Keep Me Around (Video)
In “Keep Me Around,” the machines reign: a wobbly bassline, relentless drumbeats, and heavy synth layers paint a dark, dystopian picture. Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter Jane Bonis brings humanity into the mix with bright vocals and distant piano play. This contrast emphasizes the question that Jane put at the core of the song:
“We need each other, so we use each other. Keep Me Around asks the unsettling question: as we weather revolutionary upheaval and head toward an unknowable future, will we find that the human connections we built to survive were based in love, or convenience?”
