"Gone Blind" is the second single from Marin Patenaude's album "Sight Unseen" out 05-29-20.
“Gone Blind” is a raw and honest communication of my experience being diagnosed with pigment dispersion syndrome, an eye condition where the blue pigment cells in my iris are being rubbed off and plugging the drainage system of my eye, which leads to increased eye pressure that causes glaucoma.
Being diagnosed with a compromising condition is uncomfortable. It seemed final, definitive, and clinical, which I didn’t like. It made me want to revolt. My stubborn and independent nature was challenged.
This song is filled with a lot of discomfort, yet the band’s playing is oddly joyful and there is an openness in my voice. I want you to feel as free singing along with it as I do.
