Wicca Phase Springs Eternal (US)

I wake up in pain

It is a little selfish to say this, but I hope that Adam Mcllwee’s bitterness lasts for a long time so that we can carry on enjoying the way he channels it: by making songs. He lets off steam from time to time by releasing albums under the alias Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, but the pain doesn’t go away. He has made a way of life from it since he set up the GOTHBOICLIQUE collective at the beginning of the decade to lay down the foundations of emo-trap, without intending to. It is a movement that goes way beyond the musical: an impressive battalion of kids all around the world have started to understand his pain (and, therefore also to soothe it) thanks to the sorrowful rhymes of WPSE.
