I’m Harlow, and you’ve found the place where I blog about music, my biggest passion (alongside writing, of course). Whether you’re a writer looking for a recommendation for your working playlist or a music lover ravenous for in-depth musical discussion from a passionate mind on the same wavelength, I got you.
An astral projection is an intentional out-of-body experience. Though I’ve never had one of these myself, I’d say music has brought me as close to it as I’ve ever gotten.

The name is also an homage to one of my favourite tracks by a great band called Creeper.
Below I’ve listed the posting schedule I’ll try my best to adhere to. If you want to read my introductory post before anything else, click HERE. Cheers!
