I love songs that sound happy but really are written for the Misanthrope. Shimmering Stars' whopping opener I'm Gonna Try off their ep is just that. With simple lyrics, broad concepts and poppy melodies the songs are perfect for this bony winter chill.
But don't take my word for it.
Walking down the street
And I want to kill everyone I see
How come I don't like anyone that I meet?
And despite my antipathy
I am longing to be someone better
In my heart is a violence
I cannot dispel
I've lost my mind
I'm losing you
It's just as well.
