FLOOD: The Passion Issue #3

Featuring stories on Carly Rae Jepsen, Jamila Woods, Jónsi of Sigur Rós, and Helado Negro. Powered by Toyota Corolla.

In the third and final installment of our Passion Issue series, we continue to consider artists—all musicians, this time—who have side hustles, hobbies, or part-time obsessions you might never otherwise have heard about. 

For us here at FLOOD, “Passion” is a place that transcends the traditional signifiers of success, where accomplishment is measured in personal growth and our ability to become the best and most authentic version of ourselves. In the final offering from the trilogy, we’ve put together yet another exclusive digital series including interviews on the lesser-known passions of some of our favorite music-makers.

The third issue features Carly Rae Jepsen, cult pop icon who has found traveling to be a method of both deepening and bettering her relationship with herself; Jamila Woods, an R&B singer from Chicago whose study of poetry has informed both her music and her professional life, as she still teaches students; Jónsi, frontman of Icelandic outfit Sigur Rós, who makes complex perfumes sold by a store his sisters operate in Reykjavík; and Helado Negro, a synth-folk musician whose work as a collaborative visual artist is equally experimental.
