It’s time to kick back and relax this Christmas! Well, after you finish the gift shopping that you’ve been putting off for several weeks. As we roll into festive season, it’s not only time to drink and eat yourself into a coma, but it’s also a time to be thankful for the little joys in life, such as having family and friends, good music, food on the table, a roof over your head and other sentimental things.
This time of year also makes me a little nostalgic; as the year comes to an end, I feel myself reflecting on all of my experiences, achieved goals, and the things I’ve either smiled about or cried over. Accompanied with the perfect soundtrack to deliberate over life to, our #TBT this week is a stunning track that intensely focuses on one very important emotion.
Soak up the greatness of our #TBT this week – Wasted Penguinz – “Melancholia.”
Released back in 2011 on Scantraxx Recordz, this poignant piece of music quickly became one of the most impacting tracks of all-time. The emotive and deep lyrics truly highlight the sensation of melancholia, as all listeners can truly relate to this track. Wasted Penguinz have a special gift for ciphering real emotions into the medium of sound and “Melancholia” has been one of their most accurate representations of what it means to be human.
This track has made me cry, think, deliberate and question, but most importantly, it’s made me feel true and raw emotions. It’s no wonder why “Melancholia” has been deemed one of Hardstyle’s most emotive and influential tracks – it’s simply beautiful…
