I still do not know what to think of this band. I don’t have a solid stance on them. It’s really not my thing yet… I find myself coming back to their music over and over again just the same.
I found them because the lead played the male role in the video for In This Moment’s “Whore” – a song that resonates with me because it speaks to the problematic issues with being female (whether as a performer, mother, wife, etc. – you’re sexualized yet expected to be virginal, you’re expected to give out to whatever needs according to the role you fill but… yeah… this song, is just one big “fuck you, I embrace and celebrate my role”).
So at first I thought he was just part of her band but no… I see him in this video singing a duet… warning the ending is graphic. And damn… it just ripped my guts out. How many times have I walked into shit KNOWING how it would end? And that’s what this song is about. So I had to find out who this guy is which led me to this band.
I’m not a fan of growling in music only because my hearing is messed up and I can’t understand it. I want and need to know what the lyrics are. But thankfully this band is prone to kicking out lyric videos. Even so, a great deal of their music is dark. Every once in a while though they release a song like this one that I’m adding to the Chaos Rally this week, because it’s pretty much how I feel. “Fuck it, make the best of it.” I personally find it fun, even if he looks weird as shit in the video.
Songs at the Top this Week:
- “Loud (Fuck It)” – Motionless in White
Here’s the link to the YouTube page for the playlist:
The play list is getting longer and you are welcome to add more songs to the list. I know I’ll keep adding songs as I find them. The songs you add need to fit at least one of the following themes:
You can add them by clicking HERE. Remember the songs can be from any genre and be by any artist. If you don’t have a YouTube account that’s okay. Don’t be afraid to make suggestions in the comments. I will add them to the playlist. At this rate by the end of the year we will have an awesome playlist for a seriously cool party to ring in 2018. That’s pretty sweet to think about.
How did your week go? I hope your weekend is great!
