Voice notes are our generation’s romantic correspondence, stamped with a loving mutter or simply signed with a clumsy “so yeah, not sure what that means.” no but…” because no one who has ever started a voice note really knows how to end one. The rituals are fuzzy and human and therein lies the charm.
They have become the holy grail of communication between friends, both those who still share the first letters of your zip code and those who do not. Explosive conversations of familiarity, unpolished ramblings, streams of consciousness, and every nuance of life from the most tender light to the most profoundly heartbreaking, act as A reminder that we’re connected, even when we feel like we’re apart.
All live here in the blue and white waves; the voice of sisterly love.
You can fold your clothes, tidy up your apartment, put cream on your cracked nipples, or sob over a broken marriage and the notes will get you through it all – from the mundane to the messy – both. An easy-to-listen playlist of great women and a sacred space to listen to yourself, phone calls and text messages simply can’t compete.
For those of us who’d rather sit on a Tinder Swindler date than answer an unexpected phone call, this sweet audio supplement offers a fun medium, meaning we still being able to enjoy all the good parts of a phone call without having to worry, The commitment or the fear that often comes with you know, actually answering the phone (a bit excessive and very like 2007) or, oh my god, don’t leave voicemails (the stuff we give ourselves when our mouths stop working after a beep).
Voice notes, or rather friends on the other end of them, are a very forgiving format that sometimes goes unplayed for weeks, sometimes unpacked within seconds, and it it really doesn’t matter which of them is your MO. The same cannot be said when it comes to WhatsApp messages that are left on a large dgaf gray tick, or maybe even worse, a few blue messages. So, in addition to being pleasing to the ear and good for the soul, they are also dramatic little monologues.
Wherever you stand on this digital audio phenomenon, it’s nice to know that no matter how you’re feeling, you can always put it on a voice note, honey *All Saints Voice*
