Love Buzz | An Interview with Shawny Sander

10492232_10202396351250926_3436677323277621234_n

I’ve been following musician Shawny Sander for a while now on social media. She’s the cool girl next door with a twist on grunge style coming from Berlin. Which also reminds me of another city I need to visit soon.

I had the chance to get an insight on Shawny’s taste and what exactly makes her tick. Check it out.

LB: Hey! Introduce yourself.

SS: Hey, my name is Shawny Sander, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Berlin.  Currently I’m working on my first studio album. Besides all this stuff like producing my video and writing songs, I’ve modeled  since I was 14 years old, but music was always my passion.

I grew up in a small town near Berlin. In school I was always “ the weird punk girl” , which was listing to “weird” music. The people in my school never understood the music I listened to like Nirvana, Joy Division, The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Cure, The Smiths,  Silverchair, Radiohead, Soundgarden, Hole etc… So at sixteen  I moved into the city and I went to a specialized school for music.  Since I moved to Berlin I’ve met so many wonderful and creative people. I’m deeply grateful for the ones, who helped me to make it possible to produce my music, which is influenced by all those “weird” bands.  ;)

LB: What’s your favorite thing about Berlin?

SS: My favorite thing about Berlin is that you can go into the street  in a pink fluffy body suit and nobody would call you an idiot. They would probably like to take photos with you.  Berlin is a very open-minded city, and there is such a great music scene.

LB:What was your first concert? and your last concert?

SS: My very first concert… I think it was a concert of my friend’s band; 70’s rock music.  The last one was probably  “The Underground Youth”. They play Psychedelic / Shoegaze music.  Such a good band!

LB: How do you decide what to wear each day?

SS:  Well, I guess it depends on my daily mood. Normally I grab my ripped Jeans, decide for a top and then I build up my outfit with accessories.

LB: What’s your most prized possession? 

SS: In any case-my guitar.  The emotional value is invaluable.

LB: Who do you look up to and why? 

SS: Oh, there are so many people I look up to. There are of course musicians like Robert Smith, Ian Curtis, Thom Yorke, Kim Gordon and Kurt Cobain, also filmmakers like Tim Burton and Sofia Coppola. The reason why I look up to those people? They are simply people who do what they want to do. There are good in what they do, because they live for it.

10488617_323200441170441_2121307808_n

LB: Who’s your favorite female singer? male singer?

SS: Ok that’s a tough question. My favorite female singers are probably Rachel Goswell from Slowdive and Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star. I can’t decide between these women.  And my favorite male singers are Kurt and Ian. Their voices are quiet unbeatable.

10560988_539396969523683_982691410_n

LB: Name one habit that you wish you could break. 

SS: I wish I could hold a conversation better than a wet bar of soap and  when I’m bored of something or someone It’s  impossible for me to hide it in my face. Sometimes I wish I could turn this habit off.

1381347_638855539492808_2017599886_n

LB: If you could switch places with anyone living or dead for a week, who would it be and why? 

SS: I just want to be a boy for a week. I want know how it feels to punch other boys and play “how to be a heartbreaker”.

“Polaroided Valeria” by Alice Calypso for fashiongrunge.com

IMG_0244There’s something about this series by Russian photographer, Alice Calypso that really drew my interest.  Poised as an almost Alice in Wonderland through the streets, this reminds me of a lost and more simple world. Where the 90s are still in tact.

The New Class: Swim Deep

c3b2caf3d196da04cfe5296b179c1b73

This post is a little bit of a departure from the usual, but what would it be without a little change. Swim Deep is a group from Birmingham, UK formed in 2010 with an indie pop sound and a nod to early 90s style. While their music is not typically what one would identify as the “grunge” sound, it’s clear that they were influenced by the style. I have their song “King City” on one of my Spotify playlists for late night dreaming. So, this post I thought would be good to appreciate the grunge style of the past that really transcends many musical genres even today.

Young Buzz: Jack Kilmer

1399628785049.cached

This Spring I happened to catch “Palo Alto”, director Gia Coppola’s debut feature film based on James Franco’s book on adolescent life in Northern California. I was instantly drawn to the “Coppola aesthetic”, as it relates so much to what high school was like for me growing up in Washington, DC. It really is a film to put on your list to watch.

Jack Kilmer, who is the son of actor Val Kilmer had a breakthrough role in the film. I think its safe to say that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing from him. His honest portrayal of Teddy reminded so much of the demeanor of guys in my own classes in school. From his grungy attire and all around angst, it really put me right back to being the awkward girl in school doing random things for all sorts of reasons.

He even captured the attention of Hedi Slimane, as he walked in the Saint Laurent mens SS15 show just a few months ago. Whether actor or model he’s got an interesting look that lends to all sorts of genres.

Piczo is a London based photographer who has captivated me with his photography for i-D magazine (one of my longtime favorite mags). Originally from Osaka, he began taking photos of Japanese rock bands. Now his work captures the raw London youth and rock spirit that he is inevitably drawn to.  Much like myself.

Dim. E. Cres – I’m The Future | Fall 2014

dim-ecres-fall-2014-im-future22509

The Fall look book from Korean label, CRES. E. DIM‘s second line, Dim. E Cres gives me a whole new reason to look forward to the Fall season. I pretty much long for the end of summer just as soon as it begins each year. This take on a modern sportwear school girl mixed with a touch of 90s edge is one of the most original takes on fashion I’ve seen for a minute. Kudos, Dim. E Cres.
