past self x Haunt Me: Sinner (Pecador​/​죄​인​)

Sinner (Pecador/죄인) represents a quite distinctive collaboration between Haunt Me, a Mexican American post punk/darkwave trio from San Antonio, Texas, and past self, the very consistent and creative K-goth/darkwave band based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The track is trilingual number, with the first verse in Korean helmed by past self, the second verse in Spanish led by Haunt Me, and all choruses in English delivered jointly by both bands.

Thematically, the song describes the experience of existing as a minority with divergent perspectives and beliefs within a predominantly white Christian society, evoking a persistent sense of alienation. Throughout, it maintains a melancholic, somber and ominous atmosphere while it effortlessly showcases the adeptness of both bands in seamlessly fusing darkwave and post punk elements.

Darius of Haunt Me describes: “We believe this song is a must listen for any fan of dark music. We feel this track is truly special and unique because we believe it’s the first trilingual goth/postpunk/darkwave song ever created and so it’s something we’re all extremely proud of. In our humble opinion, the release of this song is a modern day historical event in the world of music. Not only for goth music but for alternative music as a whole and for all minorities everywhere.
