We Owe – Time Suck

by Stephan Boissonneault

We Owe is the experimental, post-punky/noise solo project of Christopher Pravdica, best known as the bassist of the dissonant experimental rock outfit, Swans, and recently, The Medicine Singers. We Owe’s new single “Time Suck,” is a darkened fever dream. Pravdica chants “No Future, No Future, No Future,” while a wall of electronics crackle and chew the scenery. At times, it feels like a more synthy A Place To Bury Strangers, others like you’re losing your mind in an Eastern European nightclub after consuming too many drugs. The music video is just as bizarre as jump cuts of buzzing, coloured lights that look like they were ripped out of a city tunnel or a Windows 98 computer screen pop into existence. Pravdica could be taking the voice of Father Time himself, reminding the listeners that the entity has no real stake in anyone one’s life but can take it away in moments.

“For the words of ‘Time Suck,’ I was thinking about how I don’t care about wasting time and I think everyone should waste time,” Pravdica says. “I hate when people are uptight about wasting time, cause there probably isn’t anything in the future to look forward to anyway.”

A sobering thought in a chaotic, yet static world.

We Owe’s debut album, Major Inconvenience drops December 1 via Mothland.
