On the Journal:
'Taking seriously the notion that lyrics convey the emotions present in the music, it’s delightful to read them in such a paired-down form. Stretching across genres, and with lyrics ranging from the understated to the ever-so-slightly cringe, there were plenty of songs in there that I wasn’t familiar with, and which I could just read, as poetry. Issue two is themed ‘time’ – whether its looking back, forward, or simply being in the present – and I can’t imagine a magazine like this working without a theme to bring all these ideas and emotions together.'
