ALEXANDER WANG AW15 X STEVEN KLEIN


Take a heavy metal meets goth sensibility and fuse it with models Binx Walton, Molly Blair, Lexi Boling, Sarah Brannon, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Anna Ewers and Isabella Emmack, along with singer Alice Glass (Crystal Castles) and Japanese dance duo AyaBambi - and you have Alexander Wang's AW15 campaign, shot by Steven Klein. 

Following on from the designer's AW15 NYFW show which drew influences from Marilyn Manson and Kiss.. all I have to say is, YES.

PRINCE: HARDROCKLOVER

So Prince has dropped a new single - 'HARDROCKLOVER' is a psychedelic funk and slap bass fusion, with some seriously sensual vocals from the man who I once saw wearing platform flip flops, mainly because he's so tiny the sound of his voice doesn't travel far up enough without extra height.
And if you've ever fantasised about Prince trying to woo you while making doves cry (I did in his 'Purple Rain' phase, but I think that was just because his ruffled shirt spoke volumes to me), then you'll enjoy this track with lusting lyrics like, "Turn my guitar up / So I can make this woman scream."
The track is officially released on August 28th.

GIGI AND BELLA HADID FOR V96 BY STEVEN KLEIN


When you're the daughters of one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - aka, the broken down reboot of Dynasty - it's easy to become famous for, well, nothing really.
So if you're currently hooked up to an IV full of something beyond brain-numbing, here's Gigi and Bella Hadid, once Instagram models-turned-real-models (complicated I know), throwing up some fierceness on their first cover together for V96, shot by Steven Klein, with styling by Patti Wilson. 





Gigi is blonde. The End. She also dates / dated / who cares, Cody Simpson, the US singer who looks like his face should be painted on the side of an ice-cream van.
But Bella, well she's the human equivalent of a question mark to me, because she looks like the slightly darker and disturbed sibling who would go 30 layers of crazy on you if you crossed her. She also smokes and drinks like the rest of us - meaning she always finds the stool at the bar that wants nothing to do with your drunken ass, and tosses you on the floor.
Yes, Team Bella all the way.

FRANCES: WHEN IT COMES TO US (FT. RITUAL)

When I first heard Brit singer / songwriter Frances' voice, it was an ambient and haunting electro-pop experience called 'Fire May Save You', released by Parisian tastemaker label Kitsuné.

Now most definitely one to watch, the rising UK talent returns with her EP 'Grow', released on July 10th via Communion Records, featuring 'When It Comes To Us', a track sprinkled with the singer's delicately intimate vocals but drenched with an extra layer of sultry R&B sensitivity provided by London trio Ritual.

Listen below and let France's mellifluous vocals wash over you like a soulful flow of all the feels you've ever felt at once. 

 

 

LA PRIEST - FABBY



Ex-frontman of cult electro-pop band Late of the Pier, Sam Dust, has now made his solo debut under the new moniker LA Priest (pronounced ‘laah’), with the psychedelic album offering, 'Inji', which is like listening to a loose and experimental journey clinking through the rhythmic inner workings of Dust's escapist imagination and wanderous creative spirit.

It's a soundscape that sets off your own inquisitive mind and encourages you to end up somewhere, anywhere, colourfully unexpected.

Check out the BRILLIANT (and yes it totally requires CAPS) track, 'Fabby' below, which is addictive and affecting all at once. 

Inji is out now on Domino.

OFFICIAL VIDEO: YEARS & YEARS - 'SHINE'

Image © Brace Yourself PR

Supernatural goings-on in Years & Years latest video, which sees frontman Olly Alexander wandering around an empty house while strange things occur around him, but look a little deeper behind the song itself, and as he explains:

"The metaphor of 'shine' and 'shining' comes from the way somebody can make you feel totally brand-new and special and re-made in the light of their love, but how that can feel incredibly unstable and overwhelming and make you want to destroy yourself."

This track just encapsulates how love is a myriad of complicated emotional juxtapositions, like that feeling of smiling inside, which is momentarily, actually about finding your own despair hilarious.

‘Shine’ is released on July 5th, and you can pre-order the new album 'Communion' out on July 10th HERE - look out for my interview with the band coming soon for INBEDWITH magazine.
