By Andy Leech | May 24, 2017 | (No) | 1192

By Andy Leech | May 18, 2017 | (No) | 957
The booming bass and entrancing, repetitive lyrics, drowns out the clink of shot glasses. Somewhere out there, in a reserved and unwelcoming realm known as reality, the church bell rings to signify the passing of one hour from midnight.
