about

The future is broken. Technology has triumphed. The machines and their algorithms in the clouds, have already won. We are the product. But in a desolate, abandoned and post-apocalyptic landscape of broken devices, empty batteries, and dead screens… a black angel… rises.

The Wrong Future is the 7th album from Ugress, your favorite courier of dark, dystopian and dancy electronica to countless clubs, stages, festivals, films, TV shows and video games. Ugress has consistently presented a playful and mad-sciencey retro-flirt with “the gloomy future” – and wow, suddenly, it happened.

The Wrong Future is a heartbroken love letter to a naive dream of quirky B-movie sci-fi futures… that has become our reality. The album is released digitally and on vinyl on April 13th, through the artists own indie label Uncanny Planet. Distribution by Phonofile / The Orchard / Musikkoperatørene.

Track Name: There Is No Here, Here
There is no me, here,
There is no you here,
There is no us, here,
There is no here, here.
Track Name: Dreamstroyer
Hey, is this the future?
Can i come in, or, you come out?

Do you wanna play?
we could build a dam!
up the river, to stop the flow, but no,

YOU, cross the streams
YOU, destroy the dreams
YOU, are crossing the streams
YOU, are destroying our dreams

Why, do you avoid me?
Can i come there?
or, you come here?

i promise, i will be cool.
i promise.
and if i'm cool,
then you'll be cool too, true?

but why, do we, always, cross,
the streams, the dreams

YOU, cross the streams
YOU, destroy the dreams
YOU, are crossing the streams
YOU, are destroying our dreams
Track Name: The Little Cloud Who Wouldn't And The Rainbow Who Couldn't
Heyr himna smiðr
hvers skáldit biðr;
komi mjúk til mín
miskunnin þín.
Því heitk á þik
þú hefr skaptan mik;
ek em þrællinn þinn,
þú est dróttinn minn.

Somewhere, over the rainbow,
somewhere, over the rainbow.
Track Name: All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace
I like to think (and the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers live together
in mutual programming harmony
like pure water touching clear sky.

I like to think (right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.

I like to think (it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.

(by Richard Brautigan, 1967)
