Time is frozen; the story of my life


In their new album, One Direction seems to be moving towards a more mature path. With the release of Story of My Life a few days ago, and the official video (above), from lyrics to musical treatment, to translation to a music video, to even the styling — all seems mature. Frankly, when did you see Niall sport that hair?

On a more fanboy-ish note, I just can’t believe they went this way. I love the wild, childish-ish (yes, double ish), and love crazy themes the first two albums had, but this one is refreshing – a more restrained and controlled version of the boys. This particular song, Story of My Life, has a particular folk treatment that it quickly reminds one of when Mumford and Sons released Babel. Gospel-ish, lots of strings, more organic, less synth. Less paty. More and more heart. One Direction is all ready to step up.

I cannot wait to listen to the whole album! Nov. 25 will be a special day, indeed for all Directioners around the world. Until then, we feast our hearts on Story of My Life.

He drinks coffee day in, day out. Iced Americano is his poison of choice, anytime anywhere.

He works in digital advertising but this blog is not about his job. Jonver overshares about his travels, boy dreams, and existentiality on his little space in the world wide web. He finds drunk tweeting amusing - all the more because he's funnier that way.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.
