The Joyful Knife
A happy/sad mashup alt-rock track that approaches a noise that isn't always too easy to grasp and yet here I am, happy/sad and bopping.
It's a very niche idea to be happy/sad. I think as a small kid it's a far harder experience to be anything but a 100% one or the other, but after a while, as one grows older you become aware of that beautiful feeling of bittersweet — especially as a young adult filled with the storms of anxiety. "Okay" is that made physical (audible).
It's a booming track filled with unsettling sounds that are almost impossible not to jam to and yet are so immensely destructive in their ideals and themes. A homage to the era of youthful angst layered with new-age sounds.
Welcome to the happy/sad carnival.
