We sit down to discuss stereotypes, societal pressure, and of course, singing in karaoke bars.
Meet Bonzai, the electric-soul artist you need to have on your radar. She sat down with us on a sun-drenched morning in Los Angeles to chat about everything from celebrating St. Paddy’s Day in the states to what it’s like working with artists like Mura Masa and Flume.
We’re taking a cue from Studio 54 this holiday season and opting for tons of sequins, shine on shine, and our highest platforms. You guessed it—disco has officially arrived. That’s why we put together a list of music, movies, and icons you need in your life. So here is your guide to all things disco, curated by our very own connoisseur of the era, Meredith Hunter.

From her gothic-inspired alter ego to that strawberry hair, Grace McKagan is not playin’ around over here. She’s the lead singer of The Pink Slips, a synth rock band that’s all about high energy shows, serious attitude, and lyrics that’ll make you want to roll down your window and scream at the top of your lungs. We caught up with her in Hollywood to chat about all the good stuff—we’re talking preshow milkshakes to blood-covered outfits. Whoever said rock ‘n’ roll was dead clearly hadn’t met our girl Grace.
