A Band’s Style #002# – Is Tropical

Is Tropical.

Dear Reader,

as I hope you know, I am quite passionate about good music and openly catchy, firmly unique, blatanlty stylish people. Now, currently there are, in this messy and various world, some people that need HAVE TO be recognized and highlited because of their music AND their style.

So here my “motivation letter” in which I explain why Is Tropical is a band with all the qualities to be a great one.

Simon, Gary and Dominic, the Is Tropical trio, are together pure new rave (“bass heavy, beat driven, pop-influenced lo-fi dance music”, as they describe their music) sounds, fun and style. These guys have something strongly appealing in their music and their appearance that makes it impossible not to enjoy their performances. They well express the London urban/hypster style and attitude, they are smart and cheeky, talented and aware of their potential.

This is why, dear Reader, from my little slice of the web world in which I can express my opinion, I had to show all my appreciation for this band. Was worth to spend a few words about Is Tropical: this is a band with style!

The Great Gatsby – Dressed by Prada and Miu Miu, dancing good music produced by Jay-Z

the great gatsby

Already in cinemas in USA from the 10th of May, ready for UK cinemas from the 16th of May, The Great Gatsby is one of the most awaited movies of this early 2013.

This version of the movie, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel published in 1925 and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Rome+Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Australia), follows other four previous movies, and it seems to have an appeal to the public completely new.

Beyond the great cast (Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joen Edgerton, Isla Fisher), what I can say about it is that definitely the choice of the costumes comes from an  exceptional collaboration, since Miuccia Prada, designer of Prada and Miu Miu, accepted to provide this movie with some of the best clothes created for previous collections, and then rearranged for the big screen. The final result: spectacular outfits that add to Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby that “something more” that makes definitely the difference, made already special by an amazing hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock and indie, all mixed with hints of jazz and blues soundtrack executive-produced by Jay-Z. About that, just few names: Andre 3000, Florence+the Machine, The xx, Lana Del Rey, Jack White, Beyonce, Emile Sandé, will. i. am, Fergie.

Curious enough? As I said, the movie is out in UK on May 16 🙂
