Many of the kids out there think we only love EDM music or that we only listen to music that is highly relevant today…but that’s not the case. Although you might not guess it, we are true lovers of music from a bygone era. Our musical tastes can be seen in our home, which is decorated minimally, but with definite bohemian accents making it obvious that we’re affected by a varying degree of musical and artistic backgrounds, as well as artifacts from our gypsy pursuits. We love anything different, unique or creative. At any given time, several different projects are laying around on tables or planned out in sketch books. The people in our life are much like the music we listen to…different with every beat. How boring would it be to meet someone who only likes one kind of music, or only reads one kind of book…or only likes one kind of sex? For that matter, we believe in diversity of all kinds of music.

Check out one of her greatest hits below, These Days, and let us know what you think! It really sounds much better on vinyl so we suggest you go out and buy the album and listen to it on your record player. We’ve also posted an amazing interview with Nico where she discusses The Velvet Underground, Andy Warhol and The Jesus Trip!
We love you Nico.
