5 ARTISTS TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM

An artists Instagram account can reveal their inspirations and fascinations, evidently, something I’m all about! Here’s 5 that do it for me

TWIN SHADOW

Often compared to an 80’s Era Prince, Twin Shadow’s Instagram account is littered with monochromatic art and portraits, his musical tools and the odd splash of colour. Futuristic RnB backed by haunting synths and Niles Rodgers like guitar chords. Bachelor Pad music.

ARIEL PINK

Ariel Pink’s Instagram account is like flicking through some sort of Acid Trip Fairy tale. It’s full of psychedelic tinged imagery, art, fan pics, sketches and Pink’s own unique, crazy dress sense. His collection of images really paint a picture of his overall sound. Lo-Fi, avant-garde, experimental, non commercial yet strangely appealing pop.

CRYSTAL FIGHTERS

Crystal Fighters mix uplifting indie and electronic beats with the sounds of their native Basque Country origins. Their account is filled with colour and lots of it. A festival favourite, the band post pics of their Euphoric live shows, wanderlust inducing landscapes and inspirational quotes from the road. Brighten up your day with a visit to this account saturated in an array of hues and tones.

FLUME

Young Aussie Beat maker, Flume is killing it right now. A visit to his profile will leave you a little jealous of his envious lifestyle. Pictures that populate this electronic all star’s instagram include his whacky shirts, crowds going absolutely apeshit to his tracks and just doing normal, funny stuff that you’d expect from a humble artist on the road, just happy to be living the dream.

ALBERT HAMMOND JR

The Strokes Rhythm Guitarist and occasional Solo Artist has a bit of everything filling up his feed. Pics from the road, art, his childhood, quotes, humour, plenty of guitars and a constant insight into his personal life, from his fitness regime to his personal relationships. A style Icon in Rock n Roll, AHJ’s account can be a constant source of inspiration to any hipster, if that’s your thing.
