Pack of Cards by What We Call Progress

Pack of Cards is a dark synth pop take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It's about those who have power and how they use it, but it's also about the spaces and possibilities which exist to undermine and subvert that power.

Aphasic is inspired by and includes an extract from "Theses on the philosophy of history" by Walter Benjamin. Benjamin is a Marxist writer who is commenting on the painting, Angelus Novus (The Angel of History), by Paul Klee. History is not unending progress, but rather can be viewed as an unceasing accumulation of ruins.
