Music Monday: De Lux Interview

For our final installment of AEO Up Next, we bring you the post-punk stylings of the LA-based duo, De Lux. The 22-year-olds, Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco met while skateboarding and after experimenting with a different band, decided to form the Talking Heads influenced project, De Lux.

Get to know more about how they met and what they thought of opening for Calvin Harris.  And be sure to check out the video for their song “Better at Making Time“.

Sean Guerin and Issac Franco from De Lux

AEO: Can you name one album or artist that truly affected your path in music?

Sean: David Bowie’s “Low”

Isaac: I’m gonna have to go with, Television’s “Marquee Moon.”

AEO:  Where was your first show together and what was it like?

De Lux:  Our first show together? It was at this café in Echo Park. We actually promoted the show as a different name, as Speedboat. That’s kind of like our secret name. It was a really small place. We had seven guys playing with us so it was really jam packed in there. It was really fun. There were like 50 people or something.

AEO:  Very cool. How long ago was that?

De Lux:  Our first show was probably just a little over a year ago.

AEO:  Can you tell me a little bit about how you found each other and started making music together?

De Lux:  Well, we met in high school. And Isaac was making hip-hop beats. But after high school was when we really started making music in my basement. And he would come over and record a little bit. Then I started a band with a girl and had Isaac play bass with us. Then maybe two years into that band, we just kind of started making the De Lux kind of stuff.

AEO:  Can you tell me the craziest or funniest tour bus story to date?

De Lux:  So we were in France, and we were playing a show opening up for Calvin Harris. And some dude came into our room. We were chilling in the green room after we played and the guy was like, whatever you guys are doing, when I call your name, you have to drop what you’re doing and go meet Calvin. And we were like, “ah, no. It’s cool.” And we just left.

Now that you’ve gotten to know De Lux a little bit better, get their #AEOSTYLE too!

How to wear: Socks with Slip Ons

We absolutely love the loafer and sock trend, however this look is not the easiest to master.  If you want to step up your style game and be on point with fall’s latest trends, then you must try this look! The key to rocking socks and shoes is pairing a simple loafer with a knit cotton sock, that’s right, a knit cotton sock. Don’t forget those three words! Dress socks and athletic socks will not work!  So no matter if you have classic #AEOSTYLE or go for an edgier look, this season, a pop of pattern is the perfect way to incorporate your colorful side without going overboard. Check out two ways in which you can incorporate cozy knit socks into your look below.
