Get Off The Internet, which rallies against our overreliance on social media and online personas, is a coming of age album of sorts, reflecting on the cynicism, self-sabotage, and personal frustrations that Duce – former front-man of Lower Than Atlantis, the band proclaimed as the “future of British alternative-rock” – wrestled with during the early stages of recording the EP. W
ondering if he had already experienced his best days as an artist, Duce entered the recording studio fearful that he had peaked, feeling depressed and anxious. However, the process of recording Get Off The Internet sparked a drive in Duce to create change in himself and his outlook on his future.
As a result, each song on the EP leans into a more positive and imaginative aura, signaling a return of confident artistry. By taking a broader, more organic approach to songwriting, he found inspiration in his current music diet, which Duce describes as “a regurgitation of an amalgamation of music I’ve been into all my life.”
