JANUARY 25, 2019 – Indie psych-rock band A Fragile Tomorrow have released another track from their forthcoming album Generation Loss, available February 22 on MPress Records/ILS/Universal. The song, a krautrock-themed anthem titled “How Do You Dance To It?”, premiered on The 405 along with a choreographed music video that alludes to 'Trump’s America.'
“This is a politically-motivated song inspired by krautrock,” the band explains. Krautrock, which stems from the German term “kosmische musik” meaning “cosmic music,” is a form of experimental rock that was created in Germany in the late 1960s. Lyricist Sean Kelly continues, “Essentially, it's from the point-of-view of a dictator who tells his followers to just ignore what they see and hear in the media. Not unlike a cult leader, he uses fear as a way to command control of people and has a growing obsession with the adoration he receives from his followers.”
In terms of the video, directed by Loren O’Connell, Kelly expands, “The video for ‘How Do You Dance To It?’ is a psychedelic dance piece centered around two main characters who become entranced by and enter into the world of the masked dancers. As the song deals with the cult-like mentality of Trumpism and his anti-media, anti-free press sentiments, I personally see it as a visual nod to the allure - for many Americans - of the sensationalist, faux-populist Trump movement that is rooted in and perpetuated by fear.”
With their new album Generation Loss, A Fragile Tomorrow have one mission: to redefine themselves during times of upheaval and rise up more powerful and daring than ever. Mixed by the legendary Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement), A Fragile Tomorrow worked with co-producers Zach Bodtorf and Ted Comerford on the record to construct the music as a continuous listening experience, often weaving together cinematic intros/outros that bookend the songs.
Both political and passionate, Generation Loss offers an intelligent, yet contemplative outlook for the future while plunging fist-in-the-air forward to push both themselves - and all of us - towards a beautiful, more united and compassionate tomorrow.

ABOUT A FRAGILE TOMORROW: A Fragile Tomorrow began as a trio of teen brothers who rose above a difficult, tragedy-laden childhood and channeled their emotions into smart, catchy, dreamy pop music. Having released five independent albums, the band has toured extensively with artists such as Indigo Girls, Matthew Sweet, The Bangles, and Toad The Wet Sprocket. AFT also won an Independent Music Award for their duet with distant cousin, Joan Baez, which Consequence Of Sound called ‘…a gorgeous and eccentric tribute.”
A staple in the Southern power-pop scene, Blurt Magazine dubbed them “One of South Carolina’s leading indie lights, period.” The members have collectively collaborated with many renowned musicians including Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie), Mark Hart (Crowded House), Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls), and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
