Chris Arnott - Fighting With the Devil     Folk, Electronic 10/04/2018

About a friend who lost his battle. A simple approach to this song, the overall tone is quite bleak, flat, the rhodes detuned to the hilt, the timpani ostinato unrelenting, not unlike the depression that consumes many. Most of all it is pretty because, for the most part, life is.
