Belgian dream pop/indie rock band The Haunted Youth (led by Joachim Liebens) have dropped their new single “I Feel Like Shit And I Wanna Die” and its accompanying music video.
Featuring The Haunted Youth’s signature dreamy guitar and synth sound, ‘I Feel Like Shit And I Wanna Die’ is the missing link between The Cure’s ‘Just Like Heaven’ and Slowdive’s ‘Sugar For The Pill’, and even though the title is dark, the message is positive, saying it’s ok to feel bad sometimes.
The music of The Haunted Youth echoes the shoegaze and dream pop of musical heroes like Slowdive, The Cure, as well as My Bloody Valentine and DIIV. But the band also has a very characteristic and instantly recognizable sound with that typical dreamy guitar, melancholic synths and Liebens’ velvety voice.
The Haunted Youth “I Feel Like Shit And I Wanna Die” Lyrics:
I feel like shit and i wanna die
I’ve got too many demons in my mind
I feel like nothing ever goes my way
I think I’m leaving here today
