We're living in an age of Apathy. Desensitised to the extreme, and never ending news of the world, we have no option but to approach life with a cool detachment. Citizen Kain explores this idea through the use of carefully selected percussion and little else. The track employs no melody and shows no emotion, referencing the theme effectively.
HearThug takes another approach. With a strong, mechanical beat and glitch FX, melodies flitter in and out of earshot. The descending melody develops in the break leading to final stripping back of the theme.
