“The time when I wrote these songs, I thought I was going to die. I thought I was going to go to hell. I thought I was going to be taken from my house into the spiritual world. Like, maybe some people might call that mental insanity, but I thought that I was going to die. I thought some pretty insane shit that I’ve never thought before, I thought I was in a dream, I couldn’t tell what was reality, and the songs like came from a distance from myself. Like, I had to just ‘shut off’, just play and sing, and the songs came. From my subconscious, I guess. It was like, y’know, ‘my darkest night’, and I won in the end. I won, you know. You know what I mean?”

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
