It is 3 in the afternoon, the sun is gone, the sky is gloomy, and it is about to rain.

This might be the kind of thing you would listen to if you were driving on some lonesome highway where you could see the horizon for miles. You’d drive right into the thunderstorm — which you could see brewing from afar — then cranking this up and going with it. It’s a bit moody, but hey — rain is depressing.
