Guest List

This playlist is based on a feeling, a mood, a sense of nostalgia, reminiscent of movies from the 80s, 90s and early 00s — a feeling that we get from the video that Pavel has created for In Camera. A tandem feeling of hopefulness and hopelessness, teenage coming-of-age awkwardness, bold and sometimes silly expressions of adoration (be them requited or otherwise), the bittersweet pain of growing up and crushing hard (but finding a joy in it all), the innocence and purity of adolescence, and the realness of life presented in a hyperreal way, with a hyperreal focus on the banal and familiar. This playlist features iconic songs from some of my favourite movies across the board that capture this feeling - some of the favourites of our generation. The music itself spans decades and genres but all has a unifying mood — that of being young, hopeful, and in love. — Christie Simpson

Guest List is curated each week by a different artist we love, following a different theme of their choosing. Make sure to give the playlist a follow on Spotify, so you never miss out! Playlist artwork by Modesta Žemgulytė.
