take me straight back...

Music and fashion tend to go hand-in-hand and this couldn't be any more true than in the case of the Los Angeles based group The Like. Their sixties nostalgic appearance harps back to the days of Edie Sedgwick but doesn't sit firmly in the decade thanks to their unique mix of retro one-offs picked up by one of the girls, Leena, who works at a local vintage shop. They've got a distinct image with a very modern edge. I love their music. I can't watch He's Not a Boy (below) without smiling. It makes me want to throw on a peter-pan collared mini dress, some thick liner, saddle shoes and get my groove on. Not only are these girls totally likable, talented, and stylish but they've got that extra factor (no, not the x-factor). These days success seems to be about taking some clues from the good old days of the renaissance - being a person of multifaceted talents. That is, being able to think outside the box of conventionality and blur the lines of tradition. These girls are definitely doing just that. They have played shows for Zach Posen and have had Gia Coppola produce one of their videos. While their already a big force on the LA scene (snapped by the Face Hunter last time he was in their neighborhood) they are dubbed to explode on the British front in the upcoming months with the launch of their new album Release Me that was produced by Mark Ronson. Watch this space - the combination of factors spells big things for these ladies.
