Street Spinz is a semi-weekly segment for which Metro puts ears to the streets to find out what Bostonians have spinning on their iPods. 

Nora, 25

What kind of music are you into?

Heavy Metal. I’m currently listening to Parkway Drive. They’re this metalcore band from Australia. I love them.

What are some other bands you like?

Do you know the band All That Remains? They’re a heavy-metal band from Springfield. Darkest Hour is pretty awesome as well. I also like to listen to some classic rock. You can catch me listening to Queen and some David Bowie. I’ve always been a fan.

What were you just listening to?

Right now I’m listening to techno. Tiesto, to be specific.

Do you usually only listen to techno?

Techno, Reggaeton, hip-hop, Buchata — all across the board. I’m open to anything, really.

What’s the most embarrassing artist you have on your iPod?

Well some people would say it’s a shame if you listen to Taylor Swift, but I have her on my iPod. As long as I can move to the music, and it suites the mood I’m in at the time, then I can get down to whatever. Sometimes I’m in the mood for Adele, sometimes it’s more of a Tiesto moment.

Any artists coming to town that you don’t want to miss?

Not right now. Unfortunately, I just missed The Weeknd playing at the Orpheum. He plays in Boston a lot so I hope I can catch a show next time he’s here.
