the state of mind in which someone acts against their better judgement through weakness of will
Though Note To Self‘s new music video for “Akrasia” may be about weakness of will, the song itself certainly doesn’t have that problem. “Akrasia” doesn’t let up for a second, as it hits the listener with electrifying riffs and post-hardcore leaning vocals. But aside from being a kickass jam, “Akrasia” puts forth a message to which many people can relate. Vocalist Albert Schweizer says of the song:
“We wrote this song to give people insight to what it’s like to live with a mental disorder. Being diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder myself, I know how alone a person can feel. It’s hard for people to understand what we go through every day. This is our way of saying you are not alone, we understand.”
“Akrasia” comes off the band’s debut EP, Agony Complete, which you can pick up here. And trust us, you want to.
