    Sommaire:

    Filtered through insomnia and distress signals, Amphetamine Heart pumps out an atonal pulse over flashes of lowered inhibitions. Channelling punk and heavy metal influences, this poetry collection’s soundtrack is set to a backdrop of boozecans and broken glass. Written over a three-year period, these poems are linked by discomfort and decay, frequently capturing the urgency of paranoia and self-harm. Amphetamine Heart is about excess and the imbalance that it brings. It’s about people who don’t remember how they got home at the end of the night. It’s about broken illusions and the dark undercurrents that often permeate party culture.
