John War releases forward-thinking single "Corn Syrup" from debut LP

John War is putting out his debut album Fantasy soon, and they've released the single "Corn Syrup" as a preview of what's to come. "Corn Syrup" sounds the way War envisions indie rock evolving in the 2020s: Rich with sound both analog and synthesized; at once lo-fi and with high production values. The futuristic sound of "Corn Syrup" matches the lyrical content, which comes chock full of references to the apocalypse, dishonest culture, and the present and oncoming dystopia. "Corn Syrup" and its lyric video are out now; the rest of Fantasy will come soon, so stay tuned. Listen to "Corn Syrup" below. - Will Sisskind
