#musicmonday – Darkangel by VNV Nation

Hello all and welcome to another Music Monday. This one marks out the first time – I think – that I’ve used multiple songs from the same album. The album is Empires by VNV Nation, it’s a great album, and right now it’s mix of defiance and despair is where I’m at. The tone for […]
