Melancholy Circus takes the boiled-down essence of influences from a life lived and examined, from music, literature, history, and cinema and creates plains of dissimilar existence and deep caves of thought that touch upon the dark irony of life.
Unafraid to reveal, view, and display the beauty in all things, Melancholy Circus creates visuals and soundscapes of desire, love, life, hope, and lament. Every song is different and every song is tied together. The name Melancholy Circus is the juxtaposition of dissimilarities, and isn’t that what life truly is when you stop looking on the bright side of things and start looking at both sides of things.
Additionally, the songs on The Therapy You Need speak of relationships of intimacy, family, friendship, and interaction within the sociopolitical realm, as well as old-world stories that point to present day facts, showing that history does indeed repeat itself.
Is the album title offering, in hope, that this is the therapy you need, or have you ignored the call too long, bringing the circus to your door?
