In general, I’ve found that there are two ways to listen to music. Self-expression-by-proxy or mood-management.

I land squarely in the second category. I’ve never needed other people’s music to express how I’m feeling. Perhaps that’s because I’m a musician myself.

But I very often need music to manage my emotions. To give me something different to think about. And I’ve been waiting five years for this band to add to that. Antisocialites was the album that kept me going in my first year of ministry.

The new single, Pharmacist, is perfect. The band looks different to how they did a few years ago but they sound as good as ever.
