“all the lies I tried to live by start falling apart” Does anything ever feel quite as good as deep diving into a full-blown infatuation with a new artist or a new album? Sometimes I feel very strongly that, no, nothing does. Every now and then I go through fazes of listening to only a…

Favourite Albums of 2017

The year may have changed, but the fact that I am a procrastinator still hasn’t. I meant to post this about a week ago, but better late than never! Below are my ramblings and nonsensical thoughts about the albums I loved in 2017, as well as a playlist of some of the songs I couldn’t…

Harry Styles by Harry Styles

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…

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…

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…

Banks ‘Goddess’

I’ve recently become completely obsessed with Banks’ album ‘Goddess’. I’ve had mixed feelings about her when listening to her songs on the radio previously, but I really loved the cover she did in the Radio 1 Live Lounge of ‘Are You That Somebody?’ so I thought I’d give her album a chance.

Taylor Swift: 1989

‘Heartbreak is our national anthem, we sing it proudly’ If I was to use one word to describe 1989 it would be uplifting. It is a very happy and joyful album, and it contrasts Red which (for me anyway) was an overall very melancholy album. Claiming that 1989 is the best album of the year…

One Direction: ‘Four’, ‘Fireproof’ and Rebranding

Earlier today One Direction released a new track, free to download for a 24 hour period only, and announced that their fourth studio album will be called Four and will be out on November 17th. The song, called ‘Fireproof”, is mostly why I’m writing this post. Because I really like it, but also because I…

Musical Nostalgia: My Moody Teen Playlist

Recently I’ve been looking back at and reminiscing about my past musical choices. This has been particularly fun because as my sister and I get all nostalgic about it, my “new” London friends have not even heard about half the artists and bands I play for them. Since I’m finally done with uni for the summer I…

Fall Out Boy

This post is about Fall Out Boy. It’s the same old story with this band: I started listening, got obsessed, my computer crashed and the songs disappeared. I stopped listening, and then rediscovered them when they reunited. A fun-fact about my relationship with this band is that I found out about them through One Tree…

Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys aka the band I loved, forgot about and then rediscovered. It’s a band I, believe it or not, first fell in love with way back in 2006 or thereabouts because one of the actors I loved at the time was a fan of them. Back then I wasn’t as musically inclined as I am now, so that and the fact that…
