Meet Chant Navarro, 19 years old from Hampshire, England.
“I wanted a feel-good playlist to listen to whilst making breakfast in the morning and commuting to work that would give my day an optimistic start.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Hard one, I'd have to say Australia Street by Sticky Fingers
Three way tie between Childish Gambino, The Wombats and Slenderbodies. Bit of a variation but hey, what's life without a bit of diversity.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
Gotta be Aretha Franklin or maybe Tupac
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
Easy Life in Southampton, the vibe of the crowd and the night was unreal
Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?
I've been playing the guitar since I was 11 and the ukulele since i was about 15. I've always admired classical musicians, I think it would be cool to learn the violin or maybe the harp. More realistically though, I'd love to pick up the sax or bass.
Do you have a life slogan?
None that come to mind, probably whatever lyric is stuck in my head at the moment.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
Oh man, this is gonna be harsh but I'm gonna have to say Happy by Pharrell Williams. No reason other than it was super overplayed back in 2013, loved the song in its prime but the Minions probably ruined it for me.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Close call, but I've gotta say the lyrics for me. Generally the music is what gets songs in the charts and people bopping along to the tune when comes on the radio. However, I've always loved the way that an artists experiences and emotions can be carved out of the lyrics they sing. The way that thousands, if not millions of different people from all sorts of backgrounds can relate and empathise to a song's singular meaning, whether it's falling in love, falling out of love, a good time with your friends or a throwback that echoes nostalgia. The way that we can all share that feeling, even for just 2 minutes - I find that breathtaking.
