The Limousines don't mince words in their biting social criticism of shallow materialism.
Backed by very catchy synth, this San Francisco Bay Area duo sing about getting fat and drunk and masturbating to "pixelated videos of strangers fucking themselves."
The ruthless intensity of the lyrics might be off-putting if "Very Busy People" wasn't so infectious.
The Limousines humanize their superficial protagonists with a gentle piano chord that breaks the onslaught of synth, exposing eerie sensitivity at the core of selfishness: "But we've always got time for new friends."
"Very Busy People" is a single in search of an album, but a song that's found a purpose: It's an electrifying anthem for Generation Text.
