Turn up the volume! The Music Issue is here, so meet the cool kids straight up and find what music is rocking their worlds.
Where are you from?
What do you do?
I study fashion at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I made the coat I'm wearing.
What song makes you smile?
Vance Joy, Riptide. It's such a silly song in the best way possible.
What do you listen to when you're sad?
I just put my playlist on loop. All of my music is comforting because it's so familiar to me.
What's the greatest love song of all time?
You Are My Sunshine, but the original version, not the happy-go-lucky one. It's really gritty and shows how painful love can be sometimes.
What's the first song you put on in the morning?
Lately I've been listening to Niko Valkeapaa during my morning commute to school. I'm sad to say that I don't understand a single word he's saying since it's in Sami (I should learn!), but I find the tunes and the soundscape incredibly soothing.
What's the best song to walk down the street to?
The Verve, Bittersweet Symphony.
