AUDIO: Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends – “Dark Passengers”
Heavy alternative rockers Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends are out with a new record. Predicated by dense feelings of despair, the album contains themes of day-to-day apathy (“The Impossible Task”), futility (the title track), impostor syndrome (“Authentic Fraud”), cycles (“Starting Position”), and struggling to remain in control (“Maybe I Was The Captain”) to name a few. Vocalist Lindsey Charles takes the mic on the track “Without the Poison…What Am I?”. The band has included information on Bandcamp for mental health resources, including the National Alliance on Mental Health and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It’s been tumultuous to say the least getting through quarantine this year; Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends are here to remind you not only that your feelings are valid, but also that you’re not alone.
