Listen to Detroit Dark Synth Duo Mission to the Sun’s Old-School Cyberpunk Track “In The Limit”

These are empty words

They mean nothing

Zeroed in the flesh

You output the void

Mission to the Sun’s latest single, In The Limit, signifies a striking shift for the Detroit-based duo, highlighting their ability to transcend their familiar musical boundaries. Renowned for their genre-defying innovations, this track reveals their skill in creating a more conventional song structure, with a focus on beats, drops, and basslines. Despite this transformation, the vocals retain their characteristic darkness, exploring profound themes of time’s inevitability and the contemplation of mortality.

The song has a metallic synth sound that feels rendered by Commodore 64, NES, and Sega Genesis sound chips, creating a retro-tech symphony. Each note, each beat, is a fragment of digital consciousness pulsing from the heart of a microprocessor. In this track, time’s relentless march is not merely a theme but an omnipresent force, bending the listener’s perception. The lyrics, steeped in self-loathing and spiritual liberation, explore the shattered illusions of our fragmented souls. Words become hollow vessels, carrying the weight of existential dread through the dark corridors of our minds. The world is painted as an electric dream.

Ideal for an introspective gyration on a fog-laden dance floor, In The Limit, retains Mission to the Sun’s signature cyberpunk sound design and distinct vocal delivery, blending existential depth with rhythmic allure.

Listen to the track below off the EP Needle Of Deceit, out now via Felte Records.
