Project BWQ’s ‘Old Pain (Altschmerz)’ is some dark, moody alt-rock. “Always in search of something special, singer-songwriter Darryl Joo works to craft unique but timeless songs,” he says, “to bring together friends and collaborators.” After quitting “his teaching job to pursue a lifelong dream of creating music to share with the world,” Darryl “focused on re-learning the guitar and exploring the craft of songwriting,” in a “budding music scene in Hoboken/Jersey City,” based around, “honest support, selflessness, mutual inspiration, and an inextinguishable love for music.” The gritty Hudson County flair really comes through here. This song is almost like the incessant rumbling of the Pulaski Skyway. Bringing in elements of alternative metal and atmospheric rock with the timing and drama of movie scores, Joo has created something truly special. This composition is definitely worth a listen.
