For Part II of our Primavera Sound music and sneakers highlights, we wanted to give you our top festival pics for Friday and Saturday.
The Drums‘ summer sounds reminds us of the California sun, which we associate with these Vans M Rata Vulc in Hawaiian print. The Brooklyn band’s latest release is more than just fun in the sun, they reveal a maturing sound, drawing comparisons to cult group The Smiths. We constantly listen to The Drums at sivasdescalzo HQ, so we really look forward to catching them live at #PS12!
Beach House is no stranger to Primavera Sound, and we simply can’t get enough of this American duo. Lead vocalist Victoria Legrand has such an incredible range, she cast a spell on us the first time we heard her live 2 years ago. The ultimate “Beach House” shoe has to be the Maians Pepa Rejilla in beige, a feminine and breathable flat, reminiscent of Legrand’s sultry voice.
Another band we love who is playing on Saturday is Neon Indian (top). And what better sneaker to pair with his “fantasy electronic and synthesized magic” than our forthcoming Nike Air Current in black and neon yellow, now available in pre-order. We can’t wait to dance to the young protogée’s synth-pop tunes, and we can’t think of a better sneaker to celebrate Neon’s music than with these slick and modern Nike Currents.
