So I found this thing the other day that Spotify are doing that I thought was really cool – basically they look back over your streaming history and find any artists who have become successful (read: top 40) that you ‘discovered’ before the chart-loving masses. Fun, no?

Turns out there were six artists in particular that I started listening to before they got huge; among these, I was apparently in the first 2% of listeners for both Hozier and James Bay - hello boys - as well as the first 1% for Meghan Trainor. Because us girls with the bass gotta stick together. At the end of it all they offer you a personalized playlist of new artists they think you’ll like; which got me to thinking about how you discover new stuff online.

I feel like the internet must be a confusing place for your average hipster. The vast, unfathomable mass of information makes it easier than ever to discover new things… but then also easier for everyone else to find out about them too so you have to sigh and roll your eyes and be like ‘oh, that band is sooo 2015’. Because of course you’re better and cooler and like the 2016 stuff already. Well I say bollocks to that – and didn’t anyone teach you how to share?
