45 Stories – 21. Pessimist

We were listening to a lot of “post rock” from the early 2000s around the time we recorded this song. Bands like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, etc. That’s why this song takes its time to build. Mix that patience with a slow minimal beat, atmospheric trails of guitar, and lyrics about feeding off of negative rhetoric to create positive energy, and you have our song “Pessimist”.
