FILMED FOR FORGE TV: ON THE BEAT WITH REDFACES
i think a way for me to be happier in myself is to process past trauma. i never properly dealt with anything bad that happened in my life, because i never spoke about it at the time i went through it, e.g. when i was a child. because the people who should’ve protected me were the ones causing the pain. similar to recently, i went through a tough period of letting people wear me down and accepting it as what i deserved. because i wanted to keep people around. it was very naive of me, and i think we all have that streak in us. i assume that a symptom of childhood trauma is naivety – you experience traumatic events and normalise them, so you become blissfully ignorant to other potentially awful situations because you’re scared of the abandonment and being alone.

Sophie Allison AKA Soccer Mommy, is one of my favourite discoveries of 2018 (thnx Spotify). Lo-fi indie-pop doesn’t get any better than this.
“She’ll treat you like a fucking toy
She’ll break your heart and steal your joy, like a criminal”
personellement, je trouve que la vie est difficile… notablement quand vous avez les difficulties en étant vulnérable avec les autres, surtout ceux-ci que vous aimez. j’adore voir a les photos de anciens celebres come Jane Birkin et Serge Gainsbourg. c’est un amour vieille école qui me fascine, tel que ces images ici…

With the release of their first album in a decade ‘Olympus Sleeping’, indie rock four-piece Razorlight reunited with an energetic set at Sheffield’s O2 Academy.
The band were greeted by an eclectic crowd of all ages. From teens to adults who had clearly grown with the band in the mid 2000’s. The punchy sound of the acoustic guitar and the sunburst of synths on the opening track, ‘City of Women’, showed fans who hadn’t yet heard their new material the scope and potential of the band’s later work.
