New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist: A Grand Scene for a Pandemic

A true product of the 2000s emo / pop-punk scene, I grew up listening to stories about coming to terms in the wake of destruction. It seems as though our generation was built for this. Y2k, and then came everything, and here’s…now…

The evergreen lyrics of Thursday, MeWithoutYou, The Early November, Brand New…and nowadays Drug Church, Prawn, The World is a Beautiful Place…offer deep examination into our interpersonal relationships, wrestling with reality vs expectation, and the possibility of a greater force to be reckoned with. At this point, I need these bands to help remind me what this era can mean for the world, what we have to do to make things right, and how we can support each other through the warnings we have ingested through headphones for the last two decades. And ya know, I had to throw a few light bops on 🍬

Here’s A Grand Scene for A Pandemic (homage to the Norma Jean track πŸ˜‰). Listen on Spotify & Apple Music.
