2020 has been a busy year for NEO 10Y, seeing the release of four incredible tracks;
ILY, Y, Crackhead Angel and Unrelatable Autosexual.
The themes that run through these are love energy for a utopian future, self-realization and curiosity.
On the surface Unrelatable Autosexual is a moody and tongue-in-cheek grunge-trap-ethereal self-love uber-amplified kinda vibe conversation with the universe, because I do feel we need some of that energy right now.
It's a self love / self realization track with political undertones to empower us in a time when love energy is the greatest healing force to bring us closer to peace.
Some lyrics from the bridge are, "In 10 worlds don't you see that for tranquility, we must find a higher level, and for humanity while we're waiting for peace, 420 we can vibe, you're a rebel", which references the healing power of cannabis for consciousness and wellbeing...
...and on a more political wave, "Cos we're self realized and I've opened my eyes, so it's true that I came here for trouble and no I don't want to preach, so get down on your knee, wait I'm you, no you're me, autosexual."
At the core the message is oneness, akin to Stan Yourself but amped up - for world peace.
Cerebral and subversive, genre bending post pop from Londoner, NEO 10Y.

They are an advocate for conscious leadership and the utopian future of humanity which is brought to life through their sonic landscape, provocative visuals and regular work with the BBC, National Geographic and other outlets.
