This is my story of how I started listening to Automatic Loveletter and the story of why I started Snakey-Tragedy.
I started listening to Automatic Loveletter back in 2008, I guess, around the time Recover came out. I heard about them through MySpace. I fell in love instantly! The lyrics, the emotion, the energy. It was so unique. And I’m not talking about the sound being unique, no, the emotion was unique. Sure there are good bands out there that have their “emotional” song or two. But Juliet has this constant emotion coming through her voice for the whole song in every song. I found that in itself, incredible. And the lyrics are so raw and honest.
The more I think about it, the more I love this band. I feel like everything with them is so honest. There’s no one trying to be perfect, be someone else, or no one pretending.
I, personally, respect the way Juliet is so honest in her songs. I don’t like to talk about my emotions around people, I don’t like to show any feelings, or cry in front of people. Show them that I’m upset or sad. And I think that’s why all this gets to me like this. It amazes me that she can sing her heart out and not hide one bit of herself and just not seem scared.
No I don’t claim to be Automatic Loveletter’s “#1 fan” or anything like that. No, I’ve never met them, or seen them live. But I know how they inspire me.
Anyway, one day I was looking for some A.L.L. tumblrs. And I could only find a few. I decided I wanted to make one myself. Not just so I can show off my love for the band, but so that everyone out there can come together and share the love (Aw). I wanted to make some place that some fans can come and share stories of their own. I find it beautiful the way this band touches people’s hearts! So I’m hoping I can create that place.
