Caitlyn’s life changed when she heard Green Day’s “Know Your Enemy” in middle school. Since then, she’s strived to be as punk as Billie Joe—but kind of just ended up as an awkward kid who spent Saturday afternoons taping pages from the newest AP to her bedroom wall. Caitlyn now resides at a tiny hippie haven of a school called New College of Florida, where she studies computer science with a focus on data journalism.
An avid planner, runner and tea drinker, Caitlyn spends time telling herself the Academy Is… are getting back together and studying in coffee shops. She feels just as comfortable in her data mining class as she does in her campus’ newspaper office and, according to Spotify’s Year In Music, listens to My Chemical Romance more than any artist but enjoys the Japanese House an interesting amount.
Caitlyn anticipates her 2016 Year In Music to largely include British bands, such as Moose Blood, the 1975, Creeper, Swim Deep, Peace, Catfish And The Bottlemen, As It Is, the Wombats and Neck Deep. Unlike the past two years, her top album will be Green Day’s Revolution Radio (and not the 1975’s debut), with Sum 41 and Panic! At The Disco in a close second and third, respectively.
