There are few bands that are as aptly named as 'Vi som alskade varandra sa mycket'. Translating as 'we who loved each other so much', their debut full-length illustrates poignantly the unrequited feelings of someone watching their relationship fall away from them as they desperately try to cling onto what remains. The result is a bitter, agonising release, which projects its emotion as much through its delivery as it does through the lyrics. Entirely in Swedish, most of the lyrics deal with the feelings of angst, unrequited love and additionally the difficulties of accepting that nothing remains of 'what once was'. Although these are themes commonly associated with screamo, their poetic quality is what makes them so affecting - a first-person prose used throughout which could easily be the thoughts of the recently alone, scrawled onto a notebook as some cathartic exercise. Everything sounds tortured, harrowing and most importantly genuine, which is what allows for so much replay value - the reminder that our emotions, no matter how uncomfortable, mean that we are still human and should be held on to if only for that one reason.
