This Music Monday we have asked Wolf & Badger brand, Smith-Wykes for the their musical inspirations and to create a playlist of emerging talented artists they discover in their studio. Let Rory Wykes & Michael Smith, the brains behind the brand inspire you to start the week in a musical note! Enjoy!
Mary Onettes, HIT THE WAVES. A new track from one of our favourite Swedish bands on one of our favourite labels, Labrador. We featured this track on our behind the scenes video for our Spring Summer 2013 collection shoot.
Kate Boy, IN YOUR EYES. A great thumping drum pad driven track. Check out the video and keep an eye out for the raincoats from our friends Stutterheim.
Veronica Falls, TEENAGE. This track has an infectious guitar driven 90’s nostalgic sound.
David Bowie, SOUND AND VISION. We were listening to a lot of David Bowie when we were designing the Spring Summer 2013 collection. This particular track from the album LOW is timeless.
Björk, ALL IS FULL OF LOVE. It’s a testament to Björk’s talents that this song, and the accompanying video from Chris Cunningham, seem as a fresh today as they did in 1999.
Thee Oh Sees, MINOTOUR. The garage, punk sound of San Francisco’s Thee Oh Sees always puts us in a summer mood. We sat down with Brigid and Mike from the band on a stop through Paris, and you can check out the video of our interview here: https://vimeo.com/66683646
