Sing Street

This gallery contains 5 photos.

I was dubious about this film at first, I was thinking ‘any second now it’s going to take a turn for the worse’. But it didn’t! It was actually a very uplifting film from beginning to end.

I love movies about a likeable and naive underdog – like About a Boy or Driving Lessons – but coming-of-age films with a great soundtrack like this one is even better. The songs are so catchy!… Continue reading

An inspired letter about perceived dishonesty in the industry and how they should work toward quality over quantity. However, in the morning that all too familiar, overwhelming warm wave of regret hits him… Continue reading

Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore – Marlon Williams ft. Aldous Harding

This gallery contains 1 photo.

After recently discovering the Kiwi brilliance that is Aldous Harding, I soon stumbled across this duet with another Kiwi icon, Marlon Williams.

It’s a highly melancholy song, sung in a tone of despair. But it’s so dreamy and relaxing to listen to. There’s no animosity in the song, it just sounds like pure surrender to a really bad situation. I think it’s a break up song… Continue reading
