I’ve heard this on Mary Anne Hobbs’ show on 6 Music a couple of times and each time it’s made me stop in my tracks to listen. Something in how the brass builds and then drops to a quiet rumble really resonates with me. A beautiful listen for a Sunday.
I have followed Viktorija on Instagram for a while now and love her cute illustration style. She recently posted her first video on YouTube and her camera work and voiceover style is really lovely. Enjoy : )
I travelled to Boston for the first time in April and was lucky enough to have a full day to wander around the city after I had finished work. The sky was bright blue and I walked almost ten miles taking in the sights, capturing little glimpses of green.
I love Ollie Ritchie’s wistful, rambling style. One of the comments says that the viewer feels like they are watching memories and that captures it perfectly. It made me feel like I was back in the energy of this magical town.
A lovely discovery for a Sunday.
A little bit of light at the V & A Museum.
I’ve been thinking about light a lot lately and have been starting to put together a playlist of songs to capture the creative thoughts I’m having. This version of Shine by Years & Years, covered by Ward Thomas fits right in. The harmonies are perfect for a Sunday. The picture is a corner of a painting from the Golden Age exhibition at the SMK in Copenhagen that really captured me.
I bought this beautiful book by Kassia St Clair last year after seeing it on Emma Block’s Insta Stories. It’s been sitting in my ‘waiting to be read’ pile for a while but I haven’t quite got round to it. Then this week, I saw a link to a podcast that I hadn’t heard of before called 99% Invisible. This week’s episode of the podcast was an interview with Kassia. It’s a fascinating chat about the origins of some of the colours that she discusses in the book. Great for the artist in you.
