Anna Lotterud hails from Norway, where she says “everyone is a musician” and “everyone is also [a] model.” This description can also be applied to Anna herself, who recently became a brand ambassador for both Adidas Gazelles and KENZO x H&M. She is also one half of the...

 

 

On their fifth outing aptly entitled Compassion, the dynamic, dour Danish trio Lust For Youth, have fully embraced the light. If you’ve never caught wind of Hannes Norrvides vocals (always sorrowfully yowling into the abyss) then you know LFY has the ability to immer...

Jazzy Vice is the cool girl you want to be. Her huge hair, stunning face and long legs give her the instant spotlight when she walks into a room. But her modelesque look was not the only thing that inspired us to want to learn more about her.

A few weeks ago I saw Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope, a Sundance darling executive produced by music industry veterans Pharrell Williams and Sean P. Diddy Combs. Implausible premise and scattered plot aside, the movie’s endearing protagonist trio – adolescent self-proclaimed 90...

 

Gnoomes has been together for just over a year and they’ve already invented their own genre. While their music has been frequently tagged “shoegaze,” a fuzzy alt-rock subgenre that peaked in popularity in the late 1990s, the Russian rock trio has donned their music so...
