Setting Sun – “The Sympathetic CEO”

Setting Sun has released a new single, “The Sympathetic CEO” which is about the before and after of the recession. The song is from the perspective of a CEO who’s profited at the expense of others until the economy flops. It’s then that he reflects upon his role in the current financial state. Despite the song being about the job force, economy and politics; it’s not an annoying song by any means! It’s still a sunny song, which is what I like about it.

Setting Sun is currently touring with Quitzow (I posted about both bands last month here), and they’ve also released a new track called “Whatever.” It’s got super fun lyrics like, “Whatever…I do what I want; I dress up like your new age mom.”
