April’s mixtape is an odd one in that it kind of became a collection of songs suited to a post break up landscape. I’m no where near this world now, but have been plenty of times in the past. There’s something rather indulgently wonderful about slightly aggressive “screw you music“.
It’s like that feeling of being purposefully splashed by a car and all you can do is flip the bird. You might be drenched in gross, muddy water but channelling all your angry energy into that one gesture is pretty freeing.
The same thing goes with just allowing yourself to feel the end of a relationship. A musical backdrop can be a great remedy as you move you through the pain and anger, till you’re on the other side of it for the better.
