Harry Styles: The Album

In which Camilla attempts (and fails) to briefly give her opinions on Harry Styles’ debut album, and does manage to sound incredibly silly by talking about herself in the third person. I wrote half of this in a bout of insomnia at 4am last night, so let’s blame anything weird on that, okay? Okay. It’s no…

Music April ’17

One of the good things that have come from my recent months of unemployment is a sudden increase in time spent perusing parts of Spotify I haven’t seen before. I think I mentioned in a previous post how I only recently signed up for streaming services. I don’t know why it took so long, but…

On My Playlist: March 17

After a while of prioritizing podcasts, videos and reading I’ve started listening to more music again. The result is that when I was extremely sleep deprived the other day I just sat down and wrote a lot of stuff about whatever artists came to mind. This is a somewhat edited version of the mess that…

Meaning Where There Is None

[This was originally posted in 2014 on a separate blog as a part of a university assessment and is therefore fairly different from anything else I publish on here. This is a travelogue and is meant to be an example of how to write the city through music. It is weirdly personal, and probably one of…

Troye Sivan: Blue Neighbourhood

Had you asked me 4 days ago whether or not I would write a blog post about Troye Sivan my answer would not have been yes. But things happen. I get curious, then I fall down the rabbit hole and come out again with all of these thoughts in my head. So here are some…

2016 Autumn/Winter Playlist Highlights

This post has been in my drafts for so long that by now this list feels a bit outdated. After some tweaking it does at least partially represent the music I’ve been listening to for the last six months, if not the stuff I listen to most right now. Maybe I’ll get around to writing…

One Direction: Made in the AM Review

ETA: This was originally posted on another blog almost a year ago. When I gave this blog a makeover a few months ago I completely forgot about the other blog and thought I’d lost this entire post. Turns out I hadn’t, so here it is. A bit outdated, but still pretty representative of how I…

Beyoncé: Lemonade Review

It took me until this album to properly love Beyoncé. Which is not to say I haven’t liked her music before, or haven’t appreciated her talent. I just haven’t felt immediately invested in anything she’s put out until now, but I was super intrigued once I found out that she had made a visual album.

Zayn Malik: Mind of Mine Review

  It has taken me almost a month to finish this post. I’ve found it hard to work out how to approach writing about this album in a way that best reflects how I feel about both it and Zayn. As of right now this is the closest thing I have to a review. Zayn…

My Chemical Romance

“We all love to play, but that’s really not why we started all this. It wasn’t because we wanted to play, it was because we had a purpose […] We’ve always been pretty adamant and vocal about our message. It’s just to know that it’s okay to be messed up because there are five dudes that…

One Direction: ‘Four’

Today One Direction released their fourth studio album – aptly titled ‘Four’- and it is in my opinion the best album they’ve made to date. As a more recent fan, I am most likely biased in favour of their more recent releases, but I stand by the opinion that this is the first album that properly showcases…
