I hope you’ll forgive me for neglecting this blog somewhat this past year, quite a lot happened, to say the least. I joined a new school, played live (twice!), beat the OCD that had been with me throughout my years in secondary school, studied for some A-levels, travelled abroad alone, joined another band, bleached my hair and much more. Although I’m now heading into my last year in school and very much not the same girl who started this blog, I’d like to continue it with the same enthusiasm for indie pop, Scotland and all things twee. I’m not going to promise to update this blog weekly because I’m not sure I can handle that level of commitment as previous posts have shown but I will try my best to blog as often as possible. Now to music.
This blog has a contractual obligation to post anything and everything about the band Alvvays with giddy enthusiasm so here is their TWO(!!!!!) new singles from their upcoming album Antisocialites which is due out 8/9. I’m going to see them in September so prepare for a gushing and slightly illiterate review at some point.
And an extra bonus for any of you still reading – a cover of a Green Day song by a band formed for the school summer fete (yes that’s me on bass). What else could you want?
