NOTION 062: HURTS - OUT NOW!
The first Notion of the new year: fashion inspired by music and fashion inspired music galore. Hurts head up a brilliant new issue that also features the schamazing Nicole Scherzinger and #2 album scoring Foals, alongside forward new season fashion tips, trends and editorials guaranteed to excite.
HURTS: A LIFE ON THE RUN
As Britain’s best band return for a second album of grandiose pop pageantry that dwarves all around, Peter Robinson follows Hurts as they chase adventure and conquer Europe, taking in Dita von Teese and Druids sent by the band to rename him ‘Dave.’
NICOLE SCHERZINGER: BEHIND THE MUSIC
We all know that she’s the very Schamazing former Pussycat Doll, X Factor-presenting global megastar. But did you know that she was a goth and toured with the Foo Fighters? Did you know that she has the highest Scrabble-scoring name in pop? And did you know that she turned down the most omnipresent pop song of our times? Come, let Michael Cragg reintroduce you to the one and only Nicole Scherzinger(!).
JESS MILLS: SINGING, SONGWRITING & THE SARTORIAL
Jess Mills cut her teeth as the new front-woman for Leftfield in 2010, and has been working on her own album since the tour finished. With support from the likes of Emeli Sandé, Annie Lennox, Katy B and Robert Smith (as well as the UK’s style and music press) her brand of folk-tinged, breathy electro pop looks set to continue it’s upward trajectory when the album, A Twist of Fate, is released in the next few months.
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND
A portrait series uncovering some brilliant new faces wearing the new wave of young jewellery designers.
Born in the blaze of a burning-down music industry and bringing guitars back to flaming life in Holy Fire, Foals continue to make their incendiary case for being the most important British band of the day.
With an experimental approach and an inimitable sound, Jamie Lidell has always been a leftfield musician. After fifteen years in the biz, and with a new album about to drop, is this the time he makes it big? Not likely, says Seb Law, but that’s exactly the reason you should like it…
