Starting the week with a beautifully poignant track of the day from queer Korean-American Brooklyn-based artist I Am Strikes. ‘Whatever Makes You Want to Die Less’ is, they say:

“a cautiously optimistic song about the human desire to flee from suffering, even if that means being self-indulgent in said suffering. The song stands by the idea that whatever you’ve gotta do to get to the next day is fine by me. It’s obviously extreme, but if you’ve ever experienced death seeming a better alternative to waking up in the morning, then you know you just do whatever you must to make you want to die a little less.”
