We’re just gonna talk about something real quick.
I could put it in a monthly music post or I could wait until the full album comes out to do a post on it but I figured I’ve only posted once this week and I wanted to talk about this so, here’s this week’s second post.
This is so sick. Seriously, so sick. I wanted to talk about this because I’m not sure I’ve ever been affected in the way that I am by music in the sense that listening to BTS’ songs makes my eyes fill with tears and I have absolutely no idea why sometimes. Listening to this I just zoned out and before I knew it my eyes were watering and suddenly there were little tears falling down my cheeks. That’s the power of music. That’s the power of feeling music. Music is so amazing I can’t even begin to explain how magical it is. How powerful it is. This song is so haunting and dreamlike, I just…what even. I feel like I’m floating away in a dream.
It’s so crazy to me how music can do that – how I can listen to something I don’t even understand yet my eyes are getting sparkly anyway just because I can feel it. Why am I crying? I don’t know. Because I feel it, whatever it is. I can feel it and I can hear it and my body therefore reacts to it in such a way. It’s so crazy to me.
Being excited about music is one of my favourite things, being excited to listen to new music and see what things are coming up next, that shit is so exciting and the fact that Bangtan can bring that to people is the best. I’m seriously so excited for this new album, I’m so excited to see the new musical and creative direction they’ll be taking because everything they do is always 10x better than the last thing they did, even though you thought that the last thing was the greatest thing to ever happen and you have no idea how they’re going to top it. You keep thinking they’ll never be able to continuously keep outdoing themselves because everything they do is so outstanding, yet they prove us wrong time and time again.
This really is history, and it blows my mind that this is one of the biggest things to happen to the world yet and it’s happening right here right now and we’re all getting to watch it unfold with our very eyes in real time. Everything that’s happening and has happened so far has never happened before, so no one knows what to expect or what will happen next and it’s both crazy and exciting at the same time. It’s just, it’s bigger than anything anyone can put into words I think, and it’s bigger than all of us. It’s bigger than BTS themselves even, I’m not sure even they know what’s going to happen next or how it’ll all unfold. That’s just something we’re going to have to wait and find out.
Anyway, back to Black Swan. So good. So haunting and mesmerising but then again, did we expect anything less. Of course we didn’t. They’re just so good, I run out of words to describe them because there’s just not enough, basically. I love everything about this and I just wanted to mention it for a quick second because my mind just continues to be blown away by them, their music and their vision every time. This is true art as always, and art is meant to be shared.
So here you go.
All my love,
