Experiencing Interruptions?


The heart of a love song is in the embrace of loss, in this masochist cuddling with what we no longer have, in the preciousness of memory wrapped in grace and anger.
Grief therapy is the exorcism of the other. The rejection of the body translated into a liberating vomit, a spasm of growth and learning.
Romeu Runa embodies unlike any other these boderline states of existence, extends the feeling until such time as it comes off of us to gain life. Blending beauty and discomfort in a poem that floats in space.

"I'm glad it's over, I am happy to be free."

N.I.K. gains the image that´s already there in the warm nostalgia of their synthesizers, in the predictably “cornudo” wailing of words that mix anger and denial. This is the video of an anti-ballad, a semi acapela of despair in its escape to an obvious and comfortable pace, but sweetened by simplicity and sensory generosity.

This is the battlefield of the conflict of lost love. Who has not experienced it do release the first laugh.
