When I’m feeling agitated, not even specifically angry, but this specific kind of energy where I take a very frustrated shower, I often find myself singing a specific song. It’s by a Dublin band called Girl Band. It’s called Pears for Lunch, you can listen to it here. For some reason, when I’m in this angry, annoyed mood, I find a strange solace in this band’s noisy oeuvre. Maybe it gives me an outlet, maybe I enjoy commiserating with the energy, I don’t know. Alternatively, I sometimes will pick ambient music to try to relax to, like Brian Eno or Janek Schaefer. (I’m also weird so I like some noise tracks like stuff by Tetsuo Furudate.)
What about you? Do you have music you listen to when you’re feeling stressed, agitated, or angry?
