About us

This blog is a work of love for music! We don’t earn anything from our articles and reviews, so we are pretty flexible to write about anything we like and how we like. We do not practice standard music journalism here: we write from the heart! Music is personal.



Estella Rosa: I set up this blog in August 2015. I was writing for a few other online mags and blogs, and since I have a web-design background as well a literary one, I thought of doing my own thing after a while. Bit by bit things shaped into what we have right now. I am from Amsterdam and have a very broad musical taste and background. I was active in the shoegaze/ indie scene in the 90’s, have a love for that music but also adore some of the sophistipop music I listened to in the 80’s and have a broad collection of 60’s and retro music and all things jangle and twee.

Niche: jangly dreampop, trippy chillwave, tweepop and retro and sophistipop.

Niche: indie pop, Dream pop, shoegaze, DIY and anything jangley
