Current 93, The Light Is Leaving Us All (2018)
Kierkegaard talks a great deal about masks and has this quote that I used on one of the Current albums: «Do you not know there comes a midnight hour when everyone must take off their masks?». Of course, when you take off one mask, there’s another one there. The way we armour and manufacture ourselves to cope with the dreamlike reality we are living in and to cope with the demands that we make on each other is extraordinarily complex, and what I’m trying to do is just for myself — to pull off these masks and see what’s behind them, and of course there’s another mask.
