When my friend introduced Nasty Gal to me, I was immersed in a world of joy and we did a joint order immediately. Granted, by the time the box of treats arrived I'd forgotten what was in it, but that's what you get for choosing the cheapest transatlantic shipping option. So when I heard that Brit brand Lazy Oaf were doing a collab I did a little dance of joy.

Video lookbooks rule my world (so long as they're not cheesier than a cheese flight) especially when they're shot in ye olde bowling allies like Rowans in Finsbury Park. Forget all the super kewl ironic bowling you can get up to around these ends (for a fistful of dollars), Rowans is like being transported back to your bowling birthday of 1996. We shot there once and the staff just looked on bemused the entire time, probably silently willing us to leave.

The collection launches on Tues 28th May riiiiiight here
I basically need all the watermelon stuff. Stat.

Miranda and Elektra Kilbey aka the twins that make up Say Lou Lou (the band formerly known as Saint Lou Lou) were raised between Sydney and Stockholm which might explain why they're so fucking cool. Although the Guardian described them as sounding like 'a depressed tATu'. Which, let's be honest, is still effing cool.

They recently released the video for Julian, their follow up to Maybe You. More upbeat, less dark but with the same emotional appeal of their previous offering. It's an absolute beaut of a track.

Julian is out now on iTunes.


I THINK I'M IN LOVE WITH LAURA HADDOCK. Was first mesmerised by her when she was the regulation hottie in The Inbetweeners Movie and the flame just reignited when I stumbled across this, Thanks Wonderland.

Got taken to see Wardell at the Queen of Hoxton last Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised to discover via my pre-gig research (i.e. stage times so I know how long I have to eat my dinner) that they were supporting Sir Sly. Have loved these guys since I first heard Ghost earlier this year, so was pretty excited to see them live. On a Tuesday, the most rubbish day of the week.

After one ludicrously overpriced bottle of Becks, one lap of the Queen of Hoxton's roof garden and one sa-weeeeeeeeet Wardell set, the Cali-forn-i-a boys came on and proved they're even better live than via my laptop speakers. They also confirmed that their name is pronounced 'Sir Sly' and not some douchey way of saying 'seriously'. Juuuuuuust checking.

Latest track Found You Out is much poppier than their previous releases, and it took me a few post-gig listens for it to grow on me, but grow it did. Having said that, it'll never replace Ghost in my heart. That tune is an absolute beaut and a half.

Can't wait for a full length album. Definitely recommend seeing these guys live when they're next in your ends.

Finally remembered who sung this song. Oh I love it, I love it. Tropical vibes, danciness and pure seratonin sunshine in a song.

The video's sad though. SADSIES. :(

You & I is out now.
