#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.

wes

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?
Wesley:
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.
