The New Enemy, ‘Equifux’ – Free MP3 Download

“The song’s main theme is obsession with unnecessary purchases and living beyond our means, and the debt and stress that comes with it,” says singer Clint McLean. “We buy ‘pretty things’ to experience momentary happiness, while simultaneously adding to a growing sense of despair about our financial state.

We live beyond our means in a world of credit, turning a blind eye to the reality that the shaky ground we occupy could collapse at a moments notice.”
