Zerotonine I have seen the future of funk, and it's retro. The boys have done an outstanding job with its debut EP with impressive vocals and fun lyrical content, catchy yet complex hooks, danceable drums and solid synth work that will be impossible to keep your feet still or a smile from crossing your lips. The production value is off the charts, too. There's influences from 70's all the way through to the future which gives it a timeless quality. I can't wait to see what comes next from these maestros.

Alexander Stroud Fun and energetic pop-synth. Hits on all cylinders and gets your blood and vocal chords pumping as you sing along with each catchy tune. I love all the pop culture name dropping and lyrical nods. Favorite track: Leading Man.

about

In 2046, society is controlled by the Executive Force for Cultural Order. While providing safety and comfort, the E.F.C.O. also regulates leisure, and even censors music and art to induce conformity. Living in a golden cage, the masses comply, blind to a rising shadow that eventually would be called the Great Cultural Depression.

Only the Papillon movement, a group of artists, scientists, and outlaws,continues to fight for freedom and creativity. As Papillon struggles to remain hidden from the EFCO’s prosecution, their last hope rests upon two brave heroes to take a leap of faith - a leap back
in time. Their time glider touches down in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, but then, all leads point to the 2020s.

Their new destination: 2016.
Their perfect disguise: a pop band.
Their mission: making fun and funky music.
Oh, and of course, creating a ripple effect leading to an
alternative, bright, and free future.

This is the Papillon Rising!

Track Name: Things Are Looking Up
V1:

Oops, there you go you tripped again
Looking back at what the bad world did to you
Where's your fighting spirit, life is a game
And only bailing makes you lose


B1:

The grass is greener on that side
And the ass is meaner on that bride
Stop your whining
If you let that heavy frown
Pull your face to the ground
You miss your silver lining 


Ref 1:

Things are looking up
Yeah we're coming to the twist of the story
Things are looking up
My mama told me better brave than sorry
Things are looking up
You won't change a single thing if you worry
I recommend for you to stop
Here's a buck
Get yourself a mc flurry


V2:

Truth, you need stand up qualities
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
I hit the gas and enjoy this bumpy street
What doesn't thrill me makes me ponder


B2:

I find my joy within the journey
Not like Bert but more like Ernie
Let it go
My guru told me so
I do not have control
But I know...


C-Part: 

Now is all you got, yesterday is a mystery
But if tomorrow comes, we can still make history


Alt. Ref.:

Things are looking up
Yeah we're coming to the twist of the story

Things are looking up
My mama told me better brave than sorry

Things are looking up
You won't change a single thing if you worry

I recommend for you to stop
And spice it up
Like your favorite curry
