JOPLYN’s new single MONEY MACHINE, a midtempo song mixes dark, electronic slow house beats with 808s, emotive rap-chant verses with angelic choruses, acid synths with ancient ethnic sounds, all culminating in a musical crescendo with voices chanting: “GOTTA FEED THE MONEY MACHINE!”
Money Machine is about the desperation many young girls nowadays find themselves in as a result of financial instability. It portrays the unscrupulous exploitation and objectification they are faced with, and the little amount of choices they are in a position to make. The lyrics are written from the exploiter’s perspective, who is extremely threatening and rough. This also adds to the overall atmosphere of the entire song; melancholic, however also slightly menacing.
