Another Man | Issue 24
Today, Another Man S/S17 hits newsstands. For this issue – which is titled ‘Sonic Universe’ – the reader is invited to join the magazine on a path towards illumination.
A quintet of sonic crusaders star on the covers. First up, it’s Oliver Sim from The xx, who is photographed by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Another Man’s creative director, Alister Mackie. Speaking to Paul Moody in the run-up to the band’s I See You tour, Sim reflects on the new album, the relationship between fashion and music, and his newfound sobriety.
Then there’s The Horrors’ Faris Badwan, who is changing the record once more. Photographed by rising star Ethan James Green and styled by Alister Mackie, he talks to Olivia Singer about his music, how he makes it and why he believes there’s no place for nostalgia in his creative process.
Nearing completion on a new album, the twins behind These New Puritans, George and Jack Barnett are photographed by McLellan, styled by Mackie and interviewed by Paul Moody. And, lastly, American artist Elizabeth Peyton presents a special cover starring the frontman of Danish punk rock band, Iceage, Elias Bender Rønnenfelt.
