 I posted this on Tumblr, a while back, and I don't think it was quite the right place for my post to find most of the people who would want to really scream about this song with me.

But every time I hear it it's a little harder to believe it's from 2015. Something about the guitar flange and the sultry vocals... it's transporting, pure old-school goth without being solely derivative. I can't get enough of it.

[Video contains strobes:] 

The lyrics are compelling too:




Night passing through windows
Turning them on
Turning them off

Sometimes all I've got is other people's windows
Sometimes all I've got is other people's windows
Seeing through me

Let them find you when you know you're lost
you've been kneeling in a false dawn
Let them take you coz you don't belong
In these waves
In these waves

Time will come to life again
My strange harvest
Will taste sweet again

Something I can't touch is reaching out for me
Something I can't touch is reaching out for me
Seeing through me

Haunting. I feel like haunting is a very good word for this song. I'd actually never heard of this group before, so I'm glad you decided to share it!

And I get what you mean by having trouble believing it's from 2015, it really feels like it could be a close neighbor of early 80s Siouxsie and the Banshees.

I think the audio compression contributes quite a lot to the gothy sound, too.

I see what you mean! It does sound like it could have been ripped straight from the discography of one of the flagship goth bands circa 1987. The lyrics are also very good. (And quite goth.)

This is that party where you're staring our the window of the house on top of the ridge down into the lights of town, and there are all sorts of lights flashing and people are vaping and you have a bubble of calm, slightly tinged with melancholy. I was at that party in like 1998, except without the vaping.
