Fågelle interviewed for 15 Questions (h/t Lauren Barley) / I write about the existential. The mundane sluggish parts of life and the friction between people. Trying to face the darkest parts with curiosity, to be brave, and see it all for what it is.

Whitney’s Playland – “Sunset Sea Breeze” (via Raven Sings the Blues) / With nods to Yo La Tengo, Damon & Naomi, The Sundays, and American Analog Set, Whitney’s Playland finds their niche in the quiet corners of indie pop.
