The Lemon Twigs Interview 2016  From Hollywood to the Carpenters

The Lemon Twigs Interview 2016
From Hollywood to the Carpenters

The songs on their debut album ‘The Lemon Twigs Do Hollywood’, released on October 21 by 4AD veer from The Beatles and Beach Boys inspired pop with an off kilter twist to the kind of glitzy croonerisms you may have found in the chintzy casinos and music halls of that era.

Blitz Kid Marilyn 80's icon

Blitz Kid Marilyn, Getting to Know the 80’s icon: Interview

As one of the most photographed Blitz Kids of his generation, Marilyn (né Peter Robinson) was a fixture on London’s underground club scene long before he released a record. He modelled his look on Marilyn Monroe, riffing off the classic bombshell look at first (“it used to take me at least two hours to get ready just to buy a bottle of milk!”) then later adopting a less contrived style with long blonde dreadlocks and a gender-fluid wardrobe that veered from exquisite Antony Price gowns to crop tops and chinos.

A natural fit – the girls are after all a perfect demonstration of sun drenched carefreeness that California is known for. Volcom’s newest campaign is a dreamy, fun filled escape into the unknown which is exactly what you see when watching the video. The clothes are perfectly suited for the band – young, wild and free which is a statement the girls live by with their musical careers.

Gabriel Bruce Talks At the Gates of Babylon

I will keep on doing this for the rest of my life. I make albums that I care about and that a very small group of other people care about. Hopefully, if I keep on doing it and do it honestly, then that group will grow. I just want to keep on making music that I am interested in; working on music that I find exciting and working with some other people.
