This past year, “a day in the life” has never looked so stagnant. What was once routine has become standstill; we’ve lost the little rituals we used to take for granted. To find them again, we have to look at life a little differently. We created our ongoing series 9am to 9pm to get a glimpse into where artists find creative inspiration in their daily lives.
In this edition, we take a peek into the day-to-day life of Squirrel Flower’s Ella Williams in the days leading up to her sophomore album Planet (i) out this Friday via Polyvinyl. Check out the compiled diary below to hear Ella discuss her daily adventures around Boston, her time spent with family, and her top-quality meme designs.
9:00 a.m. i wake up. it’s still spring, the trees are in between flowering and leaf phases, my allergies hit me like a ton of bricks. i look out my window at some chickadees and pigeons hangin out around in the air. i think about the pigeon that slept on my windowsill every night in april and may.
9:15 a.m. i water my plants and say good morning to my stuffed alligator named douglas
i also see these guys
2:00 p.m. band practice. i don’t really take pictures when i practice because im very FOCUSED and SERIOUS.
i bike to the lake. the water is cold as fuck. there’s a frat party nearby playing horrible music so we blast industrial techno to drown it out. i watch the sunset burning through the clouds
