The ghosts of Alan Vega and Prince wail through the synthesizers on a Palm Springsteen song. The electricity of Mick Jagger shakes in frontman Nick Hinman’s tapered pants. And although you can credit their dynamism to the sounds of Joy Division, Talking Heads, or any other New Wave sweaty dance groove, Palm Springsteen are in the wake of their potential to become modern icons on their own.

by Lara Arbid

I was first introduced to Travis’ work with an image from his tribe series. Kamen is pictured in a blue background with stars on his cheekbones, sprinkled with glitter, touched with clouds and lightning on his collarbones. It was an image that spoke beauty and fantasy.

After a quizzical look, she answers that it’s her favorite scent, the ever so popular “Alien” by Thierry Mugler. It makes sense that she would wear a perfume that almost perfectly seems to define who she is: different.
