If you think you can write 500-1000 words on your favourite bands/musician etc, then hit me up, because I’m wanting to put together a zine where people discuss their favourite band/musician, talk about their experiences of them, why they are your favourite etc. It is very daggy, but think of it as on opportunity for you to really express why you love some stupid band so much that you feel as though no one else gets it. Just a bit of fun to try and get myself writing, and I thought maybe some others would like to join in! Also if you think you have friends that would be interested, reblog please! :D
I’ve never really been into The xx, so when my best friend insisted we stay for their 1:50am set at Optimus Primavera Sound (well, she didn’t insist, but she really wanted to see it) on the day where we’d been rained on for hours (and the day Death Cab cancelled!), I went quite begrudgingly.
They opened with this song, Devotion, off their upcoming album. And wow, I can’t remember the last time I was so quickly won over.
Okay, so I started trying to learn French a couple months ago, and I’m only really halfway through one unit on Rosetta Stone, so I know colours and how to count to twelve (barely) but the other day I thought I’d rewatch that adorable Capucine video from some years back and it all sounded like gibberish to me still and gave me a headache. This has nothing to do with this song, which is great and is kind of upbeat but also really sad and a bit dark?? Take a look at the lyrics translation: Oh, Ava, you read those words over and over again / From three-sentence-long letters which tear your age off you / You know he’s a coward / But Ava, he just thinks you’re a fool When he kisses you, you feel like living again / But he’s really just renting his bed. AMAZING.
The third in an indeterminate series of primesassy musical ladies I’ve been listening to lately.
