All these emo and punk and post-hardcore bands have lead singers with voices higher than my current physics grade.
The Divine Zero is loud. I like that part of it. Normally I would listen to lo-fi hip-hop or synthy pop songs while doing my homework, but now that I have to push myself harder, I have to go back to my “roots”: emo.
I’m embracing my emo again. Early-teen me was incredibly emo. There are some awful emo-fetus pictures of me–face round and chubby and pale and hair slanted all the way over one half of my face. I like the way synthy pulsing music makes me light and cool, as if my skin were being layered with static. But I also like how harsh and fierce punk music makes me feel big and sharp and hard and fearless. I like that feeling better. The Divine Zero. It makes me want to headbang and jump on top of tables. I like that feeling. It made me feel braver about studying for tomorrow’s crucial physics test.
I want to scream into the next century with this type of music.
