‘Twisted Forms’ is the first single from Mock Deer’s forthcoming album, ‘The Art of Loneliness’, to be released on 14th February. Through the song and video, Mock Deer (also known as Ricky Damiani) addresses the impact of social media on our lives and examines the nature of human connections. Damiani says of ‘Twisted Forms’: “This song is one of the oldest on the album and I wrote it shortly after re-locating to London. Over time the song has developed and its meaning has shifted slightly for me. What started as a song about my own anxiety and feelings of displacement has now developed into a more collective concern regarding balance, inclusion and the societal factions that seem to be growing in the modern world – prescriptive lifestyles, social dogmas, technology and social media, all of which can create a sterile and lonely environment for many.” It’s a thoughtful commentary on modern society.
