I’ve looped “Electric Bones” on my phone for what seems like my entire life at this point. Also, if you know me and you know this video you’ll recognize that Findlay is literally THE girl for white power suit inspiration. Natalie Findlay has toured with Iggy Pop, Karen Elson, and Brandon Flowers. She was also personally asked by Mick Jagger to play the Serpentine party in London. I just have such a soft spot for badass rockstar women. Her sound is a little rock, a little pop, a little garage and a little blues, but she’s ballsy af and cooler than I’ll ever be.
“Don’t you wanna come with me?” The six words every die hard fan wants to hear Brandon Flowers sing to them (and a few thousand other people) while The Killers closed out ACL 2017 on a hot Texas night.
The Killers have made an incredible comeback with their album Wonderful Wonderful. I could go on and on about how their latest album is so poetic and beautiful but also so incredibly sad. And as a long time Killers fan I’ve practically worshiped Brandon Flowers. The frontman has the perfect hint of darkness in his lyrics and is an incredible performer. However, what I really admire is his fashion taste. After seeing them again at ACL I was in awe of Brandon’s gold suit, when he came out and performed “The Man” I was floored.
