Track By Tracks: Glista - Never Apologise for Defending Yourself From Being Violated (2023)

Our songwriting style can be described as "orderly-chaotic" and that is reflected in the lyrics as well. The songs don't share a common theme, but there is a red line to the whole album.

The general theme is a bit darker, compared to the debut, and psychological in nature, keeping the social criticism and cheery subtones to contradict it.

The artwork follows the same example. It is meant to induce an uneasy feeling, yet remain a bit funny. It is a photo, as was the previous album's artwork, but this time, everything, including the logo, is a physical object. So no Photoshop. We chose this artwork style to move in a slightly different direction than most of the releases nowadays.

Kastriraj Kontroliraj talks about a black-mirroresque (not so) alternative reality, where castrating yourself is financially rewarded. Musically it starts as a (kind of cheesy) metal song, but then breaks into punk, setting the tone of what's to come.

Kraljica mraka is one of the bitter-sweet songs. It talks about a girl who was turned into a werewolf, riding a skateboard, and hunting other werewolves in search of her attacker. When she finally finds and grotesquely kills him, sadly, nothing changes for her and she continues to hunt other werewolves.

Trigger Threshold describes a very frustrated mind, in which simply having to wait in a line a bit longer than usual induces a violent fantasy.

Disturbing.Industrial.Yearning - the initials and the short cover of MacGyver theme in the middle of the song tell it all.

Someone Did Something is another bitter-sweet piece, with cheery riffage and a dark theme. It describes the real story of a 9-year-old girl being abducted and assaulted by a serial killer but rescued in the last moment because a person noticed something strange and decided to act upon it.

Pastor of Muppets was supposed to be a joke song but ended up talking about abuse nevertheless.

The "Never Apologise For Defending Yourself From Being Violated" Blues is, again, describing a real situation, where a girl has been violated, but felt like she had to apologize for her outburst after the violation happened.

Svi na ulice (skidat guzice) is about the growing economic gap, where people are blinded by the display of wealth and division politics, not realizing the ship is going down.

Touch Scream has a similar message, talking about the blinding effect of modern technology, and portraying the offenders as role models.

5th Horseman of the Apocalypse is a cover of a Slovenian crust punk band, talking about our dying environment.

Potion of Dializa is one of the lighter songs, vaguely describing the modern lifestyle, full of questionable substances going into our bodies.

The subject of Self-Hell-Sell-Help is joining an imaginary organization for self-help, which isolates them from their friends and family, drains their money, and uses them to recruit new members. Sounds familiar?

Zadajam si rane might be the deepest and darkest of our songs, talking about self-harm and suicide, developing into a progressively angrier feel with an open ending, lacking the contradictory cheery theme. We also accompany the music with a freak show performance when playing live.

Kleines Arschloch vaguely references the comic book with the same name. Basically, it's a rant against narcissism in the modern society.

Finally, there's Twoface, another dark one. The subject of the song is a psychopath, making their way upward in society.
