Undiscovered Musicians: Keaton Henson

Floating across the magical land of 8tracks, a site for users to create personal playlists,bounced from one indie playlist to the next, before eventually stumbling upon a gem of an artist: Keaton Henson. Soulful, lyrical and emotive, Henson’s music is both breathtakingly beautiful, and yet, deceivingly simple on the surface. Genres: indie, folk rock, classical, alternative…

5 Songs Currently On Replay

It’s difficult to choose songs to describe my week, as I never take time into account when listening to music. Rather, this compilation depicts the most replayed songs… recently (oh, what a specific time-frame I’ve provided). Hopefully, you’ll bypass the songs’ randomness –that skip across a multitude of genres, ideas and overall themes– and perhaps…

Goodbye Moon [FLASH FICTION]

Sometimes a single word can ignite your imagination. I was extremely inspired by Emma’s amazing post, where the prompt was a simple (yet powerful) word: moon. The night is such a beautiful place to be, with the simplicity of darkness, away from the busy rush of daytime. Be dynamic during the daylight hours before returning to…

Undiscovered Musicians: Daughter

It all started last year, when I clicked on a Tumblr follower’s blog. They had a song on auto-play, and although I usually pause them (as I’m listening to something else myself), I couldn’t help but leave it on. The tune, the edge, the beautiful voice accompanying the lyrics… it was unlike anything else I…

Goodbye June, Hello July

It’s been so long since I’ve written one of these posts! But I definitely enjoyed constructing them, especially since they allowed me to reflect on my past month through only positive things (favourite music, words, events, etc.) June has been a wonderful month, but to be honest, I kind of lost track of everything. I…

Simply Sunday (#4)

Simply Sunday is a reading meme run here at Books for a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you can share your favourite quote of the week; be it from a book, a novella, a short story, a poem, a song – whatever you like! I am the worst at updating on a regular schedule, so this Simply Sunday…

Goodbye September, Hello October

This wonderful GIF is one of the many on Tumblr. I absolutely love flowers, so it made my entire day. 🙂 The month of September has been a pleasant one, filled with school holidays, anime marathons and a lot of studying (but for subjects I absolutely adored). Also, all my exams are over, and I…

7 Instrumental Pieces I Fell In Love With (Part 3)

I suppose I can’t stop listening to instrumental music, no matter how much I try. I’ve lost interest in most of the things I used to enjoy; novel-writing, reading, watching television shows, etc. But for some reason, I still can’t stop listening to music. Maybe that’s the beauty of such expression; a feeling, like a…

3 Adorable Songs to Brighten Your Day

From time to time, we need a break from life. I myself have my fair share of favourite books revolving around angst (A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd is one of my favourite books) or “darker” types of music (anything by Three Days Grace, Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin I enjoy). Then there are movies,…

The Art of Procrastination

What skill would I love to master? If you asked me this question, I would reply immediately with “mind reading.” It’s so wonderful, it’s quick, it’s accurate. You have complete power about what you know/don’t know about the person. However, recently I realised I really don’t care. Who cares what they think? Who cares what’s…

7 Instrumental Pieces I Fell In Love With (Part 2)

Instrumental music –what would I do without you? Over the course of my years, I’ve come across some absolutely stunning instrumentals –piano melodies, violin songs, etc. And I use this blog to hopefully expose them to acknowledge them. There’s already a Part 1 which you can access here. I’m writing Part 2 because I love…
