Confession: we’ve been at it again.
It only seems like a couple of months that we shared Volume #18 in all of its pristine, monochromatic glory – and that’s precisely because it was.
Throughout May, we’ve been hard at work compiling another bible of as much music, culture and important stuff, for you, the people who like your lowdowns to be look nice. We’ve only gone and got the lad from bloody One Direction on the front of it, too.
Alongside a cover feature with imperious Irish crooner Niall Horan, we’ve got exclusive interviews with nu-pop goddess Nao, Alex Aiono, Puzzle, Daya and hip-hop’s most important lone wolf Vince Staples.
As well as that, we weigh in on the cultural impact of Brexit one year on, the fluidity of Instagram politics, the rise and rise of burgermania, we learn how paul burfoot turned a small, soho salon operating out of a converted sex shop into one of the world’s most recognisable hair styling brands, plus Vicky Grout shares images from her archive of grime photography.
We like this one a lot. Can’t wait for you all to see it. Be safe.
