I'm a sucker for reliving my adolescence through TV, and you can never go wrong with a good murder mystery. So when I stumbled across Glue on Neon recently, I couldn't believe I'd never seen it before. Like Skins meets Broadchurch, the eight-episode miniseries follows a group of teenagers in the tiny English town of Overton following the devastating murder of their friend, Cal. With an impeccable cast of largely unknown actors (unless you recognise Jessie Cave as Harry Potter's Lavender Brown), and a beautifully gloomy portrayal of the seemingly picture-perfect English countryside, Glue is a thoroughly engrossing watch. There's even a surprise supporting role from Kiwi legend Kerry Fox and a two-episode turn from Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Despite winning favour with critics, Glue reportedly had disappointingly low ratings when it screened in 2014 - so I'm rallying all my friends to help find it a new fanbase.
I'm starting to have to delete apps off my phone to make space for the amount of music I want to listen to at the moment. I've been blasting Tei Shi's new album, Crawl Space, on repeat; it's hands down one of the best alt-pop records I've heard in years. With shimmering, funky production and introspective lyrics, it's made all the more impressive by Tei Shi's role as writer, singer and co-producer. Across 15 tracks, there's not a single dud.
