Track: Yard Act – ‘Peanuts’
Label: Zen FC
Quote: “I’m as disappointed in those who chortle ‘gammon’ as I am those who cry ‘snowflake’ because it’s just doing the same thing but filtered through a different version of reality. I think the only way we’re going to get through this is by communicating and empathising with each other, so even though people might have been brainwashed into believing utter bollocks it’s important to accept that their emotions are real. That’s why ‘Peanuts’ ends with a compromise in the kitchen. Empathising with her friend and validating her emotions is the only way she can help her begin to move on from the bonkers version of reality that’s built up around her. We’ve all got tunnel vision, and we’re all cowering in the burrows of our own stubborn minds.”
