It’s the individuality that comes with every story and every characterDale Maplethorpe on “Love, Loss, Lockdown”
that led me to my album choice. The Party is a 2016 album by singer/
songwriter Andy Shauf, it is a beautiful album that you should listen
to immediately. The whole thing takes place at, you guessed it, a party,
where each song is about a different person there. Each track takes its
own shape around that person’s feelings, insecurities and problems.
Andy captures these different and relatable points of view in a way which is parallel to Sneha’s ability to do the same thing in her book.
