.gif’s 2013 EP release giving us all the primal feels. The idea behind the release might be melancholic but it also gives the hope of a promise – it’s nuanced like that. Listening to this during pre-game drinks, while ushering the New Year? Very yes.
“A Portuguese and Galician word that has no direct translation in English. it describes a felt emptiness or absence–a deep emotional state of nostalgic or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone. it often carries the repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return.
Also described as “the love that remains”, and is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement or pleasure. it is both a sad and happy feeling–sadness for missing and gladness for having experienced the memory.” (SOURCE)
