TVD Video Premiere: NØMADS, “THAASSOPHØBIA”

PHOTO: KIKI CONWAY | “Thaassophobia is the fear of boredom or idleness. In our hyper-connected modern society, we are constantly stimulated. New lives enter the world bombarded by more light and sound than ever before.”

“We are now challenged by the prospect of sitting alone in a room in silence. Without an LED glow or the dull ping of a text message, how do we measure a day in a life? This is the new reality. Technology, and the real-time availability of boundless, immeasurable information, has come to replace the silence and tranquility of a still moment. It’s becoming harder and harder for human beings to hold attention. Everything happens, everyday. Everything is news. Everything is packaged for maximum attention and impact. There is no such thing as boredom anymore.

But if we are to be constantly stimulated, what does boredom even mean anymore? We are bored now not by our lack of access to excitement, but rather to its ubiquity. We are bored by stimulation. Thaassophobia (also spelled Thassophobia) is the irrational fear of boredom, idleness, or stillness. The Thaassophobic personality is one that is constantly moving, constantly shifting, constantly searching for the next shiny object. Something happens when nothing happens in our lives.”
Nathan Lithgow

NØMADS are releasing one new song from their sophomore album PHOBIAC each month in 2017 leading up to its official release in February 2018. We’re pleased to premiere October’s “THAASSOPHØBIA.”
