We are excited to announce a new feature on our blog. Music inspires much of our fashion, and we wanted to share some of our current favorites with you via our Sunday Sounds series.
Up first is the New York trio Vivian Girls. I first heard Vivian Girls in 2008 and quickly fell in love with their gritty dream pop/lo-fi sound. Named after the controversial artwork of Henry Darger, critics compared their music to the likes of riot grrrl bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. For the Vivian Girls, do wop and 60s rock inspires their songs. Some classic standouts for them include: The Chantels, Patience and Prudence, the Shirelles, and the Four Seasons. Aside from their 60s influence, the Vivian Girls also have a love for disco and 80s dance music, making them a particularly versatile band.
