    I'm doing an english controlled assessment, and i'd quite like to know anyway, but does anyone know how to describe the feeling of a sort of existential, romanticized sadness that people enjoy and find sexy, kind of like miserable indie bands? How do you describe it?

    Sentimentally self aware? Melancholy?

    I'm not sure whether there is a set word to define that particular emotion/ state of mind, but rather you'd use adjectives, or lean towards figurative language. I think it'd most likely be a sentence to describe such expression.
