Since 2013 they have played their nightmarishly beautiful pop music, in a borderline of sorrow, strength, pain, power, mysticism and fantasy. The songs have been lured out of the hidden well, from the secret corners of the heart, and have become immortalized in this world with shiny raiment.
The Hanged Man arose in the calm after the storm, in a time of stillness when the world suddenly had turned upside down. Only then eyes could begin to look inward.
The inspiration comes from dark places like forests, skies and seas - even the own psyche where the interior is as a lake. The places are not necessarily scary, rather secure. It is in those places the soul gets room to shout out its need for affirmation.
