dark red background

When your aesthetic changes depending on whatever album Arctic Monkeys has just released

2013: all-black accessories, menthol cigarettes for the aesthetic, outline of naked bodies over a dark background, dark red lipstick, being alone in your room playing the bass guitar, black leather jacket over a white shirt, wearing shades at night, rereading text messages from your lover, slow-dancing with a stranger at your friend’s party

2018: vegas, pristine suits and evening dresses, synthesizers, old hollywood starlets, opening up a bit too much when you’re high, shortwave radios, drive-in theatres, dipping your feet in the hotel’s swimming pool after hours, reruns of black-and-white science fiction films
