中国乐队的摇滚T恤

Twin Horizon最近发行了一组新的T恤。这一组新的T恤是以5个独立乐队而激发出灵感。T恤是以Stegosaurus命名的,同乐队本身一样摇滚。这件蓝色的T恤是以红色的,张着大口的,流着口水的骷髅为形象。 宇宙庞克乐队Friend or Foe则是注重在T恤上展现了一个戴面具的人物形象。Boys Climbing Rope是一个具有恶作剧形象的人物作为封面来展现乐队的独立与小众的一面。粉色的T恤体现出Rainbow Danger Club梦想嘻哈以及维多利亚时代的潮流。如果Twin Horizon的艺术家想要去创造特别的艺术效果以来纪念天才的音乐人并且吸引观众,那么他们已经成功了。

A horizon is unique, inspiring, and striking... much like Twin Horizon's inaugural T-shirt line. Twin Horizon is a new T-shirt label that recently released a lookbook for their first line, Shanghai DIY. Having been inspired by and named after 5 independent bands that epitomize the Shanghai scene, the T-shirts present a rocking look, each with its own story to tell.

The T-shirt named after Stegosaurus? is as rock 'n' roll as the band themselves. The light blue shirt features a reddish, open-mouthed skull, drooling, with the band's name in fuzzy, slimy letters. It's definitely the kind of shirt that can give you nightmares, and correlates with the band's "oddball" sound.

Space-punk band Friend or Foe is featured on a gray shirt that shows a person hiding their face with a stone with the words "Friend or Foe" carved into it. This masked figure displays the band's "other worldly nature."

Boys Climbing Rope, which regrettably played their last show at YuYingTang last month, is illustrated by a properly dressed, full-head-of-hair skeleton pulling on a rope attached to the tail of what looks like a small, strangely-scaled whale, with the band's name outlining the whale. Inspired by the band's song "Whale song," this design is mischievous, and shows off the band's indie rock persona.

A pink T-shirt holds the image that is Rainbow Danger Club, whose name alone is enough to provoke your imagination. The band's name is skillfully shaped to create the appearance of a man's face, which is accessorized with a top hat, emanating the band's "dream pop" vibe and "Victoria-era" sense of style.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Moon Tyrant, one of the loudest bands in Shanghai. It is a red illustration with the band's name in a dominating font on top, and a girl with 3 arms below, who is holding a gun in one hand, and firing another gun with another hand. Even though the heavy metal aspect of the band is not exactly obvious, the image is edgy, and draws attention to itself. That's the point, isn't it?

If the artists down at Twin Horizon were trying to create distinctive visuals that would honor talented musicians and attract audiences, they succeeded. "At Twin Horizon, we believe an artistic statement can in itself serve as an identity"
