#AEOSTYLE Roundup: Austin City Limits

As the end of October  quickly approaches, we want to take a minute to reflect on how awesome the 2015 festival season was. Our festival tour ended with Austin City Limits two weeks ago, and we couldn’t have picked a better way to finish out the year. We loved everything about ACL Fest and Austin: the food, performances and, of course, fashion were all on point. Naturally, we’re recapping our favorite ACL looks featuring #AEOSTYLE. Check out all the photos below, and get some inspiration for next year (because we know you’re already planning!).

#MusicMonday: Kill Them With Colour Interview

We sat down with Wesley Marsh, the talent, heart and brains behind his band Kill Them With Colour to talk about music, style and the inspiration behind his success. Get to know Wesley in our exclusive AEO interview below and be sure to check out his new Brandon Flowers remix and more on Soundcloud.

Wes 5

AEO: Hey Wesley! You’ve been making a big splash in the music world recently, but before we talk about music, we’ve heard this isn’t the only thing you’re good at. Some of your previous roles include model/actor, graphic designer and producer? Tell us about this transition from one form of expression to another,
Wesley: I was born in France and my dad started taking me to castings in Pairs. I started getting into that work around 1989-1990. I had a little agency and that’s how I made my university money. I also did acting shows and taught English to French speaking people. The graphic design is all self taught. I wanted to push the brand myself and refrain from having to always hit someone up for graphics. I’ve done a lot of art myself, painting in particular. Then the transition into music started around 2003.  I got my Com-Tech teacher to change the course so I could focus solely on music. I was DJing a lot with my friends and I was in point in college where I had to pick music so I chose that path.

AEO: What has experimenting with all of these forms of expression taught you about yourself?
Wesley: Be open, experiment .

AEO: Was there a specific artist, band or album that’s influenced your path in music?
Wesley: I used to dance to Michael Jackson for hours when I was younger. I’d come home from school and my dad would be working in the dining room and I’d be dancing. I would have to close the doors close in the dining room to start dancing haha. Deep Forest and Enya on long car rides with my mom also influenced my music. Others that inspired me were Trinidad- Dance Hall and Reggae, Soca Calypso, basically growing up with that type of stuff. I also appreciate Major Lazor because he uses electronic with reggae. It has all those touchpioints which I like. It’s pretty eclectic.

AEO: Who are some of your biggest influences in music? Is there anyone that you’d like to work with?
Wesley: The great classical composers, Beethoven. There’s so many. I always say Jai-Paul from the UK. He released like 1 song in the past 5 years BTSTU and its amazing. His work that comes out is so awesome. Maybe if I mentioned him I can pull him out of the woodwork haha!

AEO: What’s the process like to create a remix?
Wesley: If artists send me the A capella’s then it’s a lot easier. I’ll start with chopping up vocals and build a chord progression. From there on out I’ll just feel it out and figure out what track its going to be. It’s basically chopping up and sampling a lot of stuff. I like to use a persons remix for synths, vocal samples and processions.

AEO: How did you come up with the name Kill Them With Colour?
Wesley: My mom and her artist friend in Trinidad. They’d go around and sell art and when she couldn’t sell anything they would come up with a term called “kill them with color”. Basically painting with so much color that it would sell because of the vibrancy. For me, I sometimes have so many types of music that people say there’s a sound to the name.

AEO: You’ve played at plenty of music festivals this summer including FireFly, Hellow festival, Bestival, Moonrise and more. What’s it like playing in front of thousands of people?
Wesley: Firefly was insane. The energy was awesome. To walk out onto a stage and to see that it’s surreal and humbling. I didn’t expect that a year ago. I also had all my friends at Firefly so the vibe was amazing.

West 4

AEO: Is there a music festival that you’d like to play at?
Wesley: Bonnaroo. I really want to play there.

AEO: What is your favorite place to perform?
Wesley: Beach, Pool Vibe. It plays into my upbringing. I need the sun and a nice beach.

AEO: Funniest or most embarrassing moment on the road?
Wesley: This would have to be at FireFly. We were staying in the camp grounds. I brought 10 of my homies and we decided to take all the windows and the roof off of my buddies jeep and duck tape my laptop and controllers to the top of the jeep. We drove around the camp site and I kid you not, we have go pro footage of like 40 people dancing around the jeep and I’m in the middle. My one friends holding a KTWC sign and my other friend is holding a huge Canadian flag. It was the best pre-party of the festival.


AEO: Best fan moment?
Wesley: Its as my first fan photo. I got off stage and my friend found this guy in the crowd, they brought him to the side and was like he wants a picture he’s your biggest fan. The best part about it was he was wearing the same Popsicle shirt as me so that was hilarious.

AEO: What advice do you have for someone who wants to get into music?
Wesley: Make music that you want to hear. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

AEO: Describe your #AEOSTYLE
Wesley: It’s funny that I have the name KTWC bc I wear a lot of black. I have custom black sneakers and tapered pants, black jeans with the pinroll, black shirt. I have all of these hats and tossing a bunch of multi-color paint on them so that’s the KTWC accent.

Wes 2

AEO: Congrats on your launch of Brandon Flowers remix! Where can someone find out more about what you’re up to?
I’m always in the studio and on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (boraborlan). I always try to keep the snaps fun.

AEO: When you’re not playing music, what can we find you doing?
Wesley: Arts and crafts.

Austin City Limits Recap

We’d like to thank today’s guest blogger Grace, Senior Copywriter at AEO, who traveled to Austin City Limits with Social Media Coordinator Addie to capture every moment of the festival for us!

It’s been a week since Florence & the Machine closed the 13th annual Austin City Limits Festival, and we’re still star-struck by her mesmerizing performance. It was truly the perfect end to an epic weekend of music, dancing and #AEOSTYLE.

But before we get caught up swooning over Florence, let’s start at the beginning.


Greetings from Austin!

Austin City Limits Music Festival

Welcome to Zilker Park!

Day 1 was a whirlwind of travel, tacos and finding our groove in Zilker Park. After fueling up at Torchy’s and taking in the iconic art installations at Roadhouse Relics, we caught our first glimpse of the festival grounds. With 8 stages to choose from, we caught as much as we could of Leon Bridges‘ soulful sound before catching the tail end of an energetic set from the Kansas Bible Company. Tame Impala was our next stop before fueling up with some Salt Lick BBQ and GoodPop popsicles.

GoodPop Popsicles

We were psyched to spot TONS of AEO festival shorties and graphic tees in the crowd, along with festival-perfect flower crowns and waist-tied flannels that came in handy when the sun set and the Foo Fighters took the stage for their second headlining performance.

Hope Outdoor Gallery

Next time you visit Hope Outdoor Gallery, try to spot our #AEOSTYLE tag!

Our AEO Wool Panama Hat is the perfect ACL accessory.

We kicked off Day 2 with a trip to the famous Hope Outdoor Gallery, a can’t-miss stop on any Austin visit. We left our tag and headed to Zilker to meet up with this year’s Mayor of ACL, Lainey Gonzales.  The UT Austin freshman and official ACL ambassador of fun gave us her tips for enjoying the festival (“Don’t miss Walk The Moon!”) and told her favorite perk of being Mayor – being one of the first people on the grounds when the gates open and thousands of people swarm in to see their favorite acts.

From HOLYCHILD to MisterWives to Modest Mouse, Saturday was packed with highlights. We noticed lots of soft lace and fringe details, along with the denim on denim look we can’t get enough of.

ACL Fashion

AEO Festival Shorties are a must for fans.

But it wasn’t just on the fans. The incredible San Fermin band let us snap a pick of their backstage style and chatted with us about their first time at ACL and their new single, No Devil.

After spending some time in awesome Austin, they agreed that their next band goal was to headline a show in the city, but for now they’re happy to share the marquee with alt-J and Best Coast at the Hollywood Bowl, another bucket list venue. Their best advice to up-and-coming bands hoping to play ACL one day? “Play as much as possible. Talk to everyone who comes out to see you.” We were so stoked to meet these amazingly talented and refreshingly humble musicians as they make their way across the US on tour.

We rounded out Day 2 with one of the most talked about acts at ACL and sure enough, Drake did NOT disappoint. Drizzy had nothing but love for his Austin fam, and they proved theirs by singing along to a few of his earliest hits.

Drake killed it on the main stage.

It wouldn’t have been a festival Sunday without a hearty Texas brunch to kick things off, and considering the lineup, we needed all the sustenance we could get.   The final fest day was filled with some of our favorite bands. Halsey, Classixx, Vance Joy and alt-J were some of the standout sets we saw, all leading up to the Florence & the Machine experience of a lifetime.

ACL Goodbye Weekend 2

What’s a music festival without a little fringe and flannel?

Until next year, ACL!
