God damn it.

So fun fact: I'm going to see this guy in concert in a couple of days! Surprisingly, he's opening for The 1975, which means that I got a whole concert of this guy. He seems nice enough, and it seems as if he can really put on a good show, so i'm hopefully optimistic of how it's gonna turn out!

honestly kinda good
fav track: Rimbaud, Come and Sit for a While

Favorite tracks: Rimbaud, Come Sit For A While
Least Favorites: Cashmoney
