A day in the life of... girl in red

You know what's easier than following around your fave up-and-coming indie-stroke-pop stars, day in, day out, to see what they're up to? Asking them.

8am
My dog Luna usually wakes up around 7am. She always puts her face on my bed and breathes in my face. I tell her to go back to bed and then she comes back at 8am. I give Luna her breakfast and take her out for a walk. I live very close to a school with a bunch of teenagers, and they always say awww when they see her. Everyone loves big dogs. I try to get away from the school cause I'm very intimidated by teenagers, and I don't want them to see me pick up Luna's poop. I know I was a teen literally two years ago, but I've always been scared of teens.

9am

After walking Luna, I end my walk at one of my favourite coffee shops. I like to sit outside and just pet Luna, especially now that it's getting a bit colder.

10am

At 10am, my other favourite coffee shop open and I get lunch there. I love the staff there, and they always know my order. I used to get embarrassed about being there so much, but now it's just nice. I bring my food back to my apartment.

12pm - 6pm

After all my food and drink consumption, I usually have some meetings. I'm always planning what to do next and how I can make things that mean something in a time that is very strange. I sporadically jump between different activities like playing piano and guitar. Cuddling/walking with Luna and hanging out with friends. I try to write, but honestly lately my mind has been all over the place. I'm happy, but I'm just thinking about so many things I don't have any sensible words written down. It's okay, though. I found some notes in my diary from five years ago where I was ranting to myself about how little I had been writing, and I've made a duzin songs since then, so I'll be alright.

7pm

I give Luna food around this time, and then we go for another walk. She's with me every moment of the day, but it's nice to have a longer walk. I'm terrible at cooking, so I either make oatmeal or order a pizza.

11pm - 1am

It's getting darker outside a lot earlier, so I'm pretty much inside watching Netflix until I go to bed. I'm so scared of walking outside in the dark. Anyways, GILMORE GIRLS yess, it's so cute and just makes me happy.

Sundara Karma have fast become one of the most interesting, inventive band of their class. With a new EP, some all-star collaboration and an outlook that constantly moves forward, the journey to album three is afoot.

The wait for shame's second album may seem to have lasted longer than it actually has. as they stand on the edge of a huge 2021, we get ready for a record that isn't supposed to be funny, but...
