dilatedpupilsxxzxlove says, “I always tried to move forward with no limits to how far I could go or how fast I could get there. Caught in the chaotic, downward spiral of anxiety, I got to the point where I couldn’t go any faster, and I couldn’t slow down. On this background, I began to make music.” He continues, “My music is addressed to everyone that feels alienated and antisocial, vulnerable but rebellious, mad but silent, craving love and affection till it turns out to be pain and depression.”
Filled with emotional vocals and an infectious beat, ‘dim the lights’ is a magical song. It reaches out and touches the heart of its listener, and this is a big part of its character and charm. Make sure to add ‘dim the lights’ to your weekend playlist, and fill your musical soul today!
