Anathema – thin air
From We’re here because we are here (2010, Kscope). The clip is made from scenes of the movie Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind.
To me, it feels as if I have to justify sharing songs from this band. But I will not. Deal with it. Or not. Does it matter?
I have been listening to this band since I was sixteen, and they were a part of my journey for a long, long time. Their music and lyrics influenced and coloured my writing and the way I write (my writing voice, so to speak).
Sometimes, listening to the songs from the past gives me a sense of peace, and that is a good thing for an overthinking, overanalysing mind like mine.
A band is more than an eccentric guitarist, or a talented drummer, or two singers. A band is made of different characters, different ideas, different talents, and that is what makes them strong (or weak).
It’s not even 9 in the morning. I am in a mood. Worry made room for anger.
