SOUR As An Asian American

emilytreadgold #7, Editorial

I say this with as little boasting as possible – as a High School Musical franchise fanatic, I *personally* knew Olivia Rodrigo was always going to be a star. With the debut “driver’s license,” it was almost like she appeared out of nowhere, but after screaming “All I Want” for the last six months prior, I knew this was going …

Formed of cousins Jonathan Capeci and Joey Beretta, and drummer Nick Sainato, Nightly has been steadily releasing dreamy songs, and now we finally have their debut album.

I’ve been listening to Lord Huron for a couple of years now and I honestly didn’t know if it could get much better than their 2015 album, Strange Trails.

Okay, we’re about to dive into the layers of my life that I don’t think I have ever mentioned – at least not out loud. I’m not sure if I’m even proud to admit that I once had a tumblr. I really used it for the 1D gifs and trying to be one of the lucky fans who Taylor Swift followed. While we’re here discussing 1D and Taylor, we all watched the Haylor relationship unfold, right? I know, I know. What the hell does this have to do with Halsey?!

It’s taken me about a week to synthesize my thoughts around “Harry Styles,” the debut album from my very favorite dude, but I finally feel like I have calmed down enough to put words on a page. I want to start by saying I am trying to make this as unbiased and as thoughtful as possible, but let’s be honest, we all know I can’t say a bad word about Harry and that’s why y’all love (or hate) me. Anyway, it would be a vast understatement to say that I wasn’t on the edge of my seat for a literal year waiting for this album, but I was a little nervous – no one knew what #SoloStyles was going to sound like, and I was really hoping it would be something I enjoyed. Harry has an interesting taste in music, so it had the potential to be anything.
