There’s something about a blurry shoegaze song that just hits you right in the chest. It’s a genre that’s all about emotion, and the way it’s able to convey heartache and melancholy is truly unmatched.
I had a dream the other night that I was listening to a moody shoegaze track, and it was like the music was speaking directly to me. The vocals were so raw and melodic, and they just resonated with me in a way that few songs ever have.
As I listened to “Kenzie” by the courts, I found myself getting lost in the melodic layers, and couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by the emotion pouring out of the music. It was filled with a sense of sadness and longing, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that the track was somehow speaking to me on a deeper level.
The more I listened, the more I felt like I was being transported to another world, one where the music was the only thing that mattered. And in that moment, all of my troubles and worries seemed to fade away, replaced by a sense of peace.1
