For those of you reading outside New Zealand you might not be familiar with a band called Broods. They are from New Zealand and they are awesome. I’m not really sure how big they are outside NZ but they’re pretty big here and I love their music. Their latest single is called ‘Free’ and there is something about it that I love. I blogged yesterday about ‘I Hate You, I Love You’ by Gnash which deals with conflicting emotions and I feel like this track is the next step in the break up.
The lyrics are powerful:
Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free
Gnash deals with the back and fourth torment of conflicting emotions, thoughts and feelings where Broods deal more with wanting to free yourself from the situation. There is no better feeling than the freedom after you’ve been struggling with thoughts, feelings or emotions. No matter what the situation is there is nothing more liberating than being free.
