Sullen Mind

Album: Golden Sings That Have Been Sung (2016)
  • A sullen mind describes someone who is sulky and gloomy and this song finds Ryley Walker explicitly addressing his own depression. He told Mojo: "Depression has been such a part of my own reality. I've been addicted to drugs since I was very young, using coke, speed and downers for a very long time. That causes a lot of depression. I've had great periods of sobriety but I always go back to it."
