MUSIC VIDEO: stroszek - The beast who dreams of man

February 18, 2019
After a few years of silence, stroszek returns with a new song entitled "The beast who dreams of man" from the forthcoming album "about all the bad days in the world" scheduled for a late 2019 release. stroszek is a project bringing forth various elements of neo-folk, goth rock, trip-hop and western music blending together seemingly irreconcilable sounds to craft something that is all about feeling and introspection. Contemplation, melancholy, and stories about life are at the forefront of the vibe in stroszek's music. "about all the bad days in the world" is an evolution in the sound of stroszek, keeping the same vibe, but also throwing in some new elements which may surprise old listeners. 

strapped to this bed 
can’t move at all 
hear my last call 
I’ll sleep when I am dead 

all lined up outside my door 
an host of black dogs lying on the floor 
waiting for me to come out and play 
that’s what you get, no place to stay
