30 Day Song Challenge - Day 4

Day 4 - A Song That Makes You Sad

"Lilja's Lament" - Indica, A Way Away (2010)

You've probably never heard of Indica. They're an all girl semi-gothic rock band from Finland. I found them on Youtube. They're great. Check them out.

But out of all their songs, this one is by far my favorite. It tells the story of a girl name Lilja who reads too much classic literature for her own good and then drowns herself ala Ophelia. It's hauntingly beautiful and fucking depressing.

Catherine found her Heathcliff, but the Brontës died alone...
