fashion forward with dolores haze

Hailing from Sweden, the charismatic and engaging punk-rock band Dolores Haze has already conquered the U.K.'s indie scene. It happened rapidly yet remarkably, the shambolic quartet took over London and surroundings in just a few shows. Raw power, a wry sense of humor, and a stark attitude defines their live performances and glamorous style. We managed to meet up with the badass band for a photo shoot, and they showed us more of their fashionable side. Flip through the awesome gallery above, and find out more interesting bits about the band's downright charming roughness in the interview, below.

When did you meet and how did your collaboration start?
Groovy Nickz: Groovy Fuck and I met in the spring of 2012, at a friend's birthday party. We were about 15 years old and drank 2.2 percent cider. I wanted to start a band and Groovy Fuck told me that she had a guitar. The following week we started playing together. I played bass on an electric guitar. We needed a drummer, so we put up ads all around the city saying "DRUMMER WANTED." One person called and it was Foxy Sagz. We never thought we would have found our best friend and best drummer through an ad. It just clicked. However, there was still something missing. We were hopeless teenagers just starting to fall in love with the grunge scene and we wanted to find our own Thurston Moore. So, when Lucky Lollo and I accidentally met at a concert in the fall of 2012, she asked me about our band and I knew from the tone of her voice that she wanted to join. Said and done, the week after we were playing together and the following month, we booked our first concert.

Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, and Agyness Deyn also star

Elisabeth Moss is trying to keep it together as punk rock artist Becky Something in the trailer for forthcoming movie Her Smell. She's surrounded by iconic faces who make up her band Something She, Gayle Rankin as Ali van der Wolff and Agyness Deyn as Marielle Hell, as she grapples with the fact that her musical prowess just doesn't draw as big a crowd as it used to.

In addition to the wavering fame, Becky is "grappling with motherhood, exhausted bandmates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of rising talent eager to usurp her stardom," according to a press release. "When Becky's chaos and excesses derail a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated and alone. Forced to get sober, temper her demons, and reckon with the past, she retreats from the spotlight and tries to recapture the creative inspiration that led her band to success." And what's clear from the trailer, Moss is absolutely meant for this role, transforming into the punk on the brink of collapse.

Rounding out the cast are Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne, and Dan Stevens. Watch the official trailer, below. Her Smell hits theaters on April 12 in New York and 14 in L.A., with "national expansion to follow."

In an acceptance speech at the BRIT Awards

As The 1975 accepted the BRIT Award for Best British group, outspoken frontman Matty Healy shared the words of journalist Laura Snapes as a way of calling out misogyny that remains ever-present in the music industry. Healy lifted a powerful quote from Snapes' coverage of allegations against Ryan Adams for The Guardian: "Male misogynist acts are examined for nuance and defended as traits of 'difficult' artists, [while] women and those who call them out are treated as hysterics who don't understand art."

Snapes reacted almost immediately on Twitter, saying she was "gobsmacked, and honoured that he'd use his platform to make this statement." Snapes had originally written the line for an interview she published with Sun Kil Moon singer Mark Kozelek back in 2015, in response to Kozelek publicly calling her a "bitch" who "totally wants to have my babies" because she requested to speak in person rather than via e-mail, which she brought up in the more recent piece on Adams. Kozelek's vile response, and the misogyny that allowed it to play out without real consequences, it could be argued, could have easily played out in the same way in 2019, which makes her reiteration of the line, and Healy's quoting it on such a large platform, all the more important.

It should be noted that back in December, Healy caught a bit of heat himself on Twitter for an interview with The Fader in which he insinuated that misogyny was an issue exclusive to hip-hop, and that rock 'n' roll had freed itself of it. He clarified at length on Twitter and apologized, saying, "I kinda forget that I'm not very educated on feminism and misogyny and I cant just 'figure stuff out' in public and end up trivializing the complexities of such enormous, experienced issues."
