Don’t Watch Me Dancing is a blog written by Tara Joshi, a twenty-something freelance journalist. At this point it mainly serves as a portfolio for my music journalism originally published elsewhere.

The blog was born out of the ashes of The Music Journal which I was writing aged fifteen, and through which I interviewed bands such as Bombay Bicycle Club and Los Campesinos! and wrote cringey, gushing reviews of numerous acts. More of the same should be expected here. I helped judge the 2011, 2013 and 2014 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competitions.

I am currently London-based, though I lived in Dublin for four years (and was the music editor of tn2 Magazine for three of them). I was nominated in 2015 for an Irish National Student Media Award in the category of Arts & Pop Culture Features writing, and am also an occasional contributing writer to Irish music website GoldenPlec.

Oh, and it’s called, ‘Don’t Watch Me Dancing’, after the Little Joy song (below), but also because the sentiment is seemingly very… “me”.
