This New York electronic pop duo has been called paranoid.  which makes sense, after all  they were incarnated thanks to the hazards of the internet in respect to our privacy as users. For example- we all forget that whatever info we share (on FB for example) is being watched and since we are being watched, can this info we so willingly share be one day used against us?  Ok, food for thought. Hmmm. Interesting I say.  Are we talking about a band?  Indeed.  A smart one.  I like music and the musicians who create it that makes me think. F*ck the "shut up and sing" movement of times past. No, they have my interest here... Go on Big Data.  Apparently, their fact finding tells us that the NSA (National Security Agency) is watching our every move on the wonderful world wide web.  So Daniel Armbruster and Alan Wilkis have a purpose and a theme, big brother is watching and they took it upon themselves to make us aware. Now, as this all sounds very poignant and serious and deep, their video and even this new song is less so.  In fact the video seems quite tame until the blood and gore starts, note to self.  Aside from their powerful, thought provoking name and message, their song "Dangerous" does have a playful yet appropriately ominous bass line. So I say, don't be too scared. Listen with an open mind right here on the very same internet about which the band is so very paranoid. Irony is best served with a side of "oh well".  No matter how dangerous.
