I was so upset when Avicii announced last year that he was retiring from DJing duties for health reasons. I’d just ecstatically devoured his 2015 album, Stories, and was eagerly anticipating a follow-up. And then he went and told us that there would be no follow-up. Not in 2016, not in 2017, not ever. So, … Continue reading Why Would I Replace The Sky? – Avicii Avïci (01) EP Review

I’ve written before about my love for the app Genius, which holds explanations and analyses of pretty much every music and poetry lyric in existence. So, for me, Genius is like Disneyland in an app. Why don’t they have real-life libraries like this? So we can just go in and read about Jay-Z’s latest album … Continue reading themaximoLyrics.1 – Drake, Furthest Thing
On a gap year, it’s easy to get bogged down. Whether it stems from the feeling that you should be doing something more productive than just reading Philosophy (well, Kevin Hart’s autobiography, but it’s kind of philosophical…), blogging and playing golf, or whether it’s the frightening silhouette of University looming constantly on the horizon. I’m … Continue reading Gap Year Trav.ails to Trav.els – Florence and Pisa, Italy

Call me old fashioned, but last Friday, I bought a song on iTunes. No, I haven’t got Spotify, Apple Music, nor Tidal. I still like paying for music that I’ll be able to keep, not paying for music that I can keep as long as I pay £10 a month for the rest of my … Continue reading Is Music still about the Music?
Yesterday afternoon, I was sat outside in the warm, hazy sun, trying to get through a bit more of my pre-University reading, when a beautiful, white butterfly landed hesitantly on the arm of my chair. As engrossed as I might have been in Bertrand Russell’s Problems of Philosophy, I couldn’t help staring at this wonderful … Continue reading Butterfly Effect
When my friend and I arrived in Birmingham at roughly 3 in the afternoon, we headed straight for the hotel. On our way, we caught a glimpse of the O2 Academy across the road, with ‘TRAVIS SCOTT SOLD OUT’ emblazoned in big letter across the front. The pre-concert butterflies began to stretch their wings in … Continue reading Travis Scott Concert Experience
So firstly, I want to apologise for the posey photo. I thought it looked quite arty so I just went with it. Secondly, I want to apologise for going quiet this past month - my blog posting has dwindled significantly as I've started organising a European inter railing trip, which in my head was going … Continue reading …guess who’s back
