Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends
Conan: "The Impossible Task is the first song on Dark Passengers, it is a song about an aspect of my personal, sometimes crippling depression. Otherwise easy or simple things that need to be done become insurmountable due to anxiety. It can be difficult for people to understand, but everyday activities become difficult and overwhelming. You know this, but still can’t move past it and do what needs to be done.
This whole record is about mental health and depression, so this one being the first song (AKA: the first thing done) is a little contrary, but we like it a lot and a heavy riff rocker is a great way to kick off our weirdest record.
Tony: " You may recognize this one if you've seen us live at all over the past year pre-apocalypse. I still remember hearing the GarageBand demo of the song before we even went to L.A. to record it, and being like 'dude, that RIFF is MIGHTY. Jesus.' Toshi said it reminded him of En Vogue, which is pretty sweet and a definite first for me in 23 years of playing music.”
