In exploring the musical diversity and eclecticism of our student body, we over at The Vine have collaborated to create a new column, “Heard it through the GrapeVINE.” Each week, we’ll ask a different member of the Fairfield community for a list of songs that they’re listening to and furthermore, create playlists accessible through our Spotify account. Through this piece, The Vine will attempt to learn something different about the musical tastes on our campus and the infinite possibilities that music can create.
Our first spotlight is Gianna Llewellyn ‘19, a film, television and media arts major. Llewellyn enjoys pop-punk and hardcore rock and feels as though her passion buds from her experience, predominately that “it’s loud, fast and deliberately offensive. You hear screaming and depressing lyrics, but all I hear is passion and a taste of the real world. I also like to see the look on people’s faces when this little blond girl bangs her head to hardcore screamo music in the library.”
