- What do you call your playlist ?
Elysian Fields - Link to the playlist here :)
- If your playlist was one NOTO product, which one would It be and why?
I love everything NOTO, but my current favorite is the multi benne stain. It's dark and broody, and I love the simplicity of it. You just dab a little on your cheeks with your fingers and you instantly feel beautiful. I just really love the elegance and intuitiveness to it.
- If you could describe your playlist in one word, what would It be?
- What was your inspiration behind your selection?
I feel like this playlist has an empyreal quality to it, and I wanted to create a playlist that felt palpable. I'm a pisces to the absolute core, so any time a song makes me want to weep it feels like a victory. I love a slow and melancholic melody that can transport me to a very specific space mentally. I also believe it's very important for music to have a cinematic quality to it. I have a really hard time separating the two; music and visuals. And just so it didn't get too sad, I threw in a few fast(ish) tracks as well.
- What do you want the listener to feel when they press play?
I wanted this playlist to feel like a temporary escape. So if you're in your car stuck in traffic in LA, I would want you to press play and for an hour you could just forget about all the stresses and anxieties that have played out in your day to day. I want the listener to experience a feeling of total release.
