Interview // Lazy Oaf

Evening! I hope you've all been out getting fabulous tans this week in the lovely Sunshine- I've been cramming in park lunches and BBQ's whilst working my socks off for a deadline tomorrow! But, now that I'm all wrapped up thanks to a serious hibernation session, I have a chance to share the interview I did with Jerry of Fashion House, Lazy Oaf. You can read it here! I want basically 90% of their clothes and accessories (both male and female ranges, weird?) so it was great to get an insight into the workings of the company.
In other news, myself and my editor are off to see Drake (OMG YOU GUYS!) on Sunday thanks to the total babes at Island Records hooking us up AND I get to catch OFWGKTA for a second time on Saturday. Dear bank balance, I am sorry in advance. Have a nice weekend everybody! X

Interview // Summer Camp

Two Posts in one day? Productivity is at an all new high, guys! Last week, I interviewed Summer Camp before their sold-out show at Manchester's Night & Day Cafe, you can read it here! Elizabeth and Jeremy were absolute babes and completely lovely to meet, not to mention how fabulous their performance was. Katie (You should all know who Katie is by now!) has also composed a review from their London date further down that page, so make sure you read it all! X

Review // Miike Snow- 'Happy To You'

Miike Snow's new album 'Happy To You' is released today and I reviewed it here. Album summary in an emoticon? Basically, :( Also, make sure you're following the FreedomSpark Twitter and FaceyB for other nuggets of fabulous journalism and a very special announcement this week (It's top secret but I shall post more about it on here once it is released into the wild! All I shall say is that I am so excited I may burst and Katie Wilkinson, what an editor!). X

Interview // Audrey Kitching

 This morning, I finalised my interview with LA fashionista Audrey Kitching- we talked about her favourite Fashion Week shows, the inspirations behind her clothing ranges and what is next up for the candy-haired beauty (And, like, doesn't this photo just make you wanna hang with her? Girl Crush!).
 Read it here
Also, I'm hoping to get my volume of music posts up to scratch on here AND this week I'm going to see Florence, The Horrors, Summer Camp and Fixers (Phew!), so expect reviews and pretty photographs soon! x

Freedom Spark Playlist // March

WHAT. A. WEEKEND. Friday I caught Sleigh Bells live on their 'Reign of Terror' tour (seeing them on their 'Treats' tour back in 2010 blew me away and I'm not the biggest fan of their second full-length but they have certainly got me back on side after this show.), followed by a Saturday catching up with old friends, making new ones, getting drunk and watching fabulous bands in Wakefield- ALL before seeing The Cribs up in Leeds- and bloody hell the Jarman Brothers have still, inevitably, got it. Also, I curate monthly playlists' on FreedomSpark, don't you know, and March plays host to the first one that doesn't follow a theme. You can catch it here, although if I know you and you're reading this, you're probs annoyed with my overplayed choices from this month (My bad, flatmates!), otherwise crank up the volume and enjoy the sunshine! Happy Monday! x
