Radio doesn’t occupy as big a place in people’s music diet as it used to. And so, when you listen to Olivia Rodrigo now, [you’re on streaming where you] can immediately listen to Paramore after and get stuck on their albums. It’s a very different way of discovering music. I also think we’re seeking out the familiar during a time when we’re all perhaps still actively seeking comfort.
I am intrigued by search of new and how this sits with the idea of memory and nostalgia. I wonder if it is a human condition to organise into the familiar, but the place of the artist of continually play with this and challenge it.
