Who? The London-based-electro-pop-trio, We Have Band, which consists of Darren Bancroft, Dede Wegg-Prosser and Thomas Wegg-Prosser
Which song? Tired of Running, from their sophomore album Ternion
Why? When we first listened to this track, we let it hypnotized us because that’s mainly what it does. With repeated but highly evocative lyrics, atmospheric synth, decisive pounding of drum and bass, and distinctive vocal, the song conveys an intense sense of frustration, urgency, anger and heartbreak. Those emotions feel even more real as they are reflected in the dark concept of the video. With band members running in slow motion in a foggy forest, the video is a perfect visualization of this enigmatic yet charming song. It is just not too much if we say that this track is mysterious and gloomy in a glorious way.
