Finnish shoegaze band Ludalloy have released an epic new single. Shoegaze has always been a genre of large, epic songs, but something about "I Was the Wind" just feels bigger and more epic. It has that strangely soothing and warm feeling, but the song is also laced with a sense of dread and anxiety. The guitar solos in particular have this beauty to them despite the feeling of discomfort they cause. "I Was the Wind" is a surprisingly affecting song that will pull you in within the first ten seconds.
The band says of the new single:
”The story is still very painful to reveal. It tells a true tale about the day that still haunts my nightmares and daydreams. I leave the lyrics open for everyones own interpretation. As transcripted it will be printed in the whole different magazines than the music and culture ones. 'The imperfectical wind' describes my feelings really well. That's how it also ended as the title.”
