Sul Fell

Freelance Music Journalist

Location icon United Kingdom

An aspiring music journalist from Leeds, West Yorkshire. My voracious appetite for reading as a child carried over into an interest in writing and I have been in love with music since I began playing the drums in primary school. In 2016, I started a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Journalism as I decided I wanted to merge my two passions and pursue music journalism.

Since the completion of my course I have had bylines in Clash Magazine, GUAP, High Snobiety and Warm And Easy as well as self-publishing a number of articles on my blog.

The nature of Earl Sweatshirt's fame has always been somewhat mythic. His virtuosic ability, coupled with his young age and sudden disappearance just as Odd Future began to garner attention, inadvertently led to the rapper being deified by legions of fans.

Clairo - Immunity

Back in 2017, Claire Cottrill was just another university student with lofty ambitions of making a career out of music. Her breakout single, 'Pretty Girl' was a subtle but sublime slice of bedroom pop that, coupled with an endearingly DIY music video, catapulted her from obscure to viral blisteringly quickly.

Cuco - 'Para Mi' Review | Highsnobiety

3.5/5.0 Omar Banos, better known as Cuco, makes music defined by youth. From its roots in DIY bedroom pop, to the candid simplicity of his lyricism and his disregard for genre constraints, everything about it is a product of the era that has helped to mold the cohort of internet pop stars to which Cuco belongs.

Looking Back on Cherry Bomb, Tyler, the Creator's Chaotic Masterpiece

I was around 14 when I was first introduced to Tyler, the Creator. I had initially been put off by the references to sexual assault and the allusions to devil worship that were littered throughout his earlier works but there was something about the multi-hyphenate, born Tyler Okonma, that was too intriguing to ignore.

What Mac Miller Meant to Me

In my first year of secondary school we had one mandatory music lesson a week. Rather than focus entirely on learning rudimentary music theory, we would also learn about music through a sociological lense, learning about The Beatles, Bob Dylan and protest music.
