The popularity of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" brought more attention to the post-punk scene than it had garnered before. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" still maintained a minimalist structure: the keyboard playing only one note at a time, the bass playing the counterpoint to the melody, a guitar only coming in intermittently. Camus, like many others, rejected the existentialist label, and considered his works concerned with facing the absurd. And you might have some consideration for me."
