Belako were originally scheduled to have released their new album, Plastic Drama, last week but due to the ongoing pandemic it was pushed back to 28th August. The band have instead released a new single, “Profile Anxiety”, which looks at how social media has taken over our lives. “It’s about how we admire, idolise and worship celebrity profiles on social media platforms. They occupy our memory & appear in our dreams, to the point where we think we know these people on a personal level,”explain the band. “Social media projects this warped viewpoint into their lives; a false appearance that leads to illusional relationships.” Very poignant. “Profile Anxiety” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
