WWWINGS are relatively new trio made up by the likes of Lit Internet, Lit Daw and Lit Empty, who probably all have net art-leaning Tumblrs. Of those three artists, you're most likely to be familiar with the first, whose mixtape/album Angelysium came out this year to critical acclaim and featured a stacked roster of guests, including NAAFI's Lao, NYC's GRONOS1, and Bala Club's Endgame.

Today, we're sharing the group's new 3000 EP, their third of 2015. It's full of downtrodden, somewhat grimey, more generally oblique and futuristic tracks—very suitable for a walk underneath threatening grey skies. There's an interesting cinematic current in the track titles, too, with names like "DIVINE," "GENESIS," "DEATHWISH," and "REDEMPTION."

Considering that the release, streaming below, raises a lot more questions than it answers, we figured we'd reach out Lit Internet ourselves to try to get a sense of what's going on here, and the resulting interview, conducted via email, follows after the jump. Be sure to get the release on Symbols when it's out November 13—plus, if you preorder now, you get a free DL of "DIVINE."
