The Seeds of your Sorrow
They said the world would end in 2012, but has anyone felt alive since then?Like a tightrope walker, earth balances between survival and surplus, between liability and liberty, between what was and what will be. Hailing from Vienna, Austria, Spitting Ibex draw their inspiration from this zeitgeist and fiercely face weltschmerz 2.0 with their current single The Seeds of your Sorrow.With purposefully political lyrics, lead singer Tanja Peinsipp synergizes clout with devotion and hits the listeners right where they can feel it the most. The song soars above the usual pap and awakens a dozy instinct in all of us: Solidarity.Humanity has been divided for too long. After all, personal anxieties are the biggest influencers. But if music is truly a language, it is most easily coherent in The Seeds of your Sorrow: Whether love or hate, whether as an individual or as a collective, you always reap what you sow.
