Coachella, the master festival that kicks off the season. Coachella is extremely expensive and notorious for their difficult tickets and crowds of social media influencers. This year it’s also known for one of the sickest lineups out there. Samantha and I will be covering the madness both weekends so make sure to follow along on Instagram @thenewnine9.
SZA owned 2017, and she’s still owning this year, but her debut album CTRL was life-changing. Her songs spoke to young women in a way no one else has. She was nominated for 5 GRAMMYS (was snubbed tbh) but this isn’t her only shot here, she’s just starting her takeover of the music world and one part of that is her killer fashion. She’s not afraid to take fashion risks.
Camila is on fire right now, the former Fifth Harmony member just released her first album titled Camila, duh, and we can’t stop listening to it. Even though we’ve already covered her fashion, she’s had a big year and we can’t help but take another look at her transformation. She has such a unique voice and it’s undeniable that “Havana” was one of the biggest songs of the year, it was even on Barack Obama’s playlist. Camila came under a lot of fire for leaving Fifth Harmony but her new music is nothing like what the group was doing and it makes more sense for her to be a solo artist.
We’ve been obsessing over Liz Huett since we heard her song STFU & Hold Me, a modern dating anthem, but we became even more obsessed after we saw her super petty video for H8U. We loved how glam she looked while going crazy at her ex’s wedding.
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.
Frida Sundemo, asides from being a talented music artist, has a love for fashion and there’s not better source for where to shop in the up-and-coming fashion city of Stockholm, Sweden. We got an inside look at where to go to snag Frida’s style in the Scandinavian city. Frida Sundemo’s debut record “Flashbacks & Futures” drops on October 6th and …
HAIM, the sister trio that has us all craving blood harmonies and perfectly beachy hair. Their sophomore album Something To Tell You has finally come out and it’s destined to be our summer soundtrack, so why not match your outfits to the perfect California cool vibe of their incredible video for “Want You Back”?
We were JUST talking about how amazing Misterwives are, but we have such a love for Mandy Lee, the badass frontwoman that wives all her misters. She is an impeccable live performer, has an incredible voice, and just radiates everything we want to be in life.
Grimes (Claire Boucher) is incredible. She is extremely intelligent, creative, and a phenomenal producer. Her latest album Art Angels is revolutionary and her live shows are life changing. I swear when she does that scream it just releases the demons from your soul.
Lady Gaga is an icon. Her Superbowl performance was stunning and her new album Joanna is such a departure from her previous work but it’s flawless from start to finish. Her look is always changing so we’re taking inspo from her Joanne songs this time around.
