Our brand new music contributor Ruby Jones introduces her first monthly playlist: VALENTINES DAY

Writing by Ruby Jones // Artwork by Joy Gómez Kolber

Growing up I was always cynical of Valentines Day, I found it to be exclusionary and over commercialised. But this year I’ve decided to reclaim it because l – o- v – e is amazing and most importantly love is for everyone. Whether that be romantic love, family love, the love between friends or self love – which is, in the wise words of Whitney Houston: the greatest love of all. These love song dedications go out to you this year, and remember “every day’s the fourteenth”.

Love Ruby
