EDITORS LETTER Welcome to the brand new issue of Image 34. Since the start of Image 34 we have always tried to bring in new content and material. Always pushing ourselves to give you all a better issue than the one before. Give you all things that you haven’t seen in the magazine before. Although we love each and everyone one of our beautiful cover girls we felt Image 34 was lacking a certain amount of male presence. So we wanted to start bringing more male features and photoshoots to our pages. Of course to go alongside the beautiful women we are already featuring. So we took this on board for issue eleven. The result was for the first time ever we teamed up with a male underwear company called, Blue Collar Underwear. They are based in the US so they shipped over the underwear so we could put the Image 34 U.K stamp all over them. I brought in model DASKALO and the lovely MUA Bobbie Ross to aid me on the shoot. So welcome to issue Eleven with our first ever male cover star. As well as our first collaboration with a male underwear brand. Be sure to let us know what you think and if there is something else YOU would like to see in Image 34. Editor In Chief Michael Sweeney


Seasurfer Seasurfer welcome! For anyone who doesn't know who you are give us a tiny introduction to yourself. We are a band from Germany's biggest towns, Berlin and Hamburg, andwe are playing some kind of post-punk, shoegazerdream pop.  All of this stuff we have grown up with.   So how did you all meet?   With Seasurfer, I wanted to do a very specific, dirty sound, and then I wanted a singer who is also very special.  Through a friend from Berlin I found Dorian.   She knows the bassist, Mikel, from older days in Berlin. How did that lead you into

music together? I write the songs in my own little studio here in Hamburg. After that, I send Dorian the instrumentals for her to sing the vocals over. Then it often goes back and forth. Later, I mix the songs with Axel Ermes here in Hamburg. Finally, Karl Skivington, from England, made the final sound by mastering the album.    If you hadn't come across music where do you think you would be now?   I can't imagine a life without music. We have always identified ourselves very much by music. Maybe I would have become a farmer or a grower, because I also love to experience nature and the seasons.


Is the music you write similar to what you listen to yourself? Sometimes, but I also hear a lot of punk music or even popular stuff from U2 or Coldplay. However, I also like some of the guitar Shoegazer bands. Radio chart music, or mainstream, bored me.   How would you describe your music?   I think it is better to listen to the music than to describe it with words. Everyone feels music differently.   What would you like people to take from your music?   Phew ... hard to say. Music is my way of expressing myself. If we can bring a few good moments into a person's life, cool. I know how I'm feeling. I love bands that are authentic and bring me euphoric moments and

a good time. If we can do that, too, then everything is ok. Describe your Dive In in one word. Euphoric!   Why did you call it Dive In?   I tested the songs also by whether I can play air guitar to them and if they can catch me emotionally. For example, I find the solo guitar in the song "We Run" like an explosion, an adrenaline rush!   What inspired the songs on the LP?   I think it's primarily the inner self. I have learned to keep hold of my own creative moments. For that I have my little recording studio. Would people see me making music, they would think I was on drugs. And I am...the drug is called guitar noise.  


This time next year what do you hope to have achieved? Next album and to play live; hopefully in the USA or UK.   What's next for you?   A lot of new songs are in the works.   Any last shout-outs?   Check out all the great bands on Saint Marie Records. Look actively for good music by

               

yourself, and don't let anyone dictate what you have to listen to! It is worth the effort! --------------------------------------To buy music by Seasurfer click here ---------------------------------------

   


Elika For anyone who doesn’t know who you are give us a tiny introduction to yourself. I’m Eva. I started Elika in 2006 with Brian Wenckebach who is now my husband. I play drums and synths and sing. I also create all of the illustrations that go along with our work. What led you into music? I was really lucky to have friends that were into great music. Even at a young age, everyone was always trying to start up a little band or something so it was always something that was in my life or around me. Is the music you write similar to what you listen to yourself? I guess some of it is some

of what I listen is in the same type of genre, but I would say in general I was always really more attracted to male singers. Bowie, Lou Reed, Ian McCulloch… I love staying kind of baritone when it makes sense or using a vocal to match a bass line or something because it just makes me happy to hear that low end in a song with the vocal. Of course there are some amazing female vocalists that I respect so much, Nico, Julie Cruise, Victoria LeGrand, Yuki Chikudate among others. How would you describe your music? Spacey, personal, catchy yet experimental. There are so many little details we put in that if you listen closely you’ll catch something new all the


time. Tell us more about Girls Be Serious? It’s our latest vinyl record and will be released in three parts through Saint Marie Records. The first instalment came out at the end of 2013 and the second part is out now. The final release should be out at the beginning of 2015. Why did you call it that? I have 2 sisters and when we were growing up, if we got too crazy or were laughing too much my mom would always say, “Girls Be Serious…” It just always seemed hilarious to me because children aren’t really meant to be serious. There was this particular set of portraits that my mother took of my sisters and me when we were very young and the photographer

asked us to make serious faces and lit the shots in a very dramatic and somber way, and looking at the pics as an adult always intrigued me. The cover shots for the 3 part album are the pictures of my sisters and me from this photo shoot. Why did you choose to release the music in three instalments? The number three has a significance to my family for many reasons, and when we were thinking of the project conceptually we thought it would be interesting to receive the albums in three separate instalments, all of them with a bit of a different personality and sentiment. What would you like people to take from your music? I just hope that they enjoy listening to it. I can’t help but write about very personal stuff that happens in my life and with my family, so if someone can relate or feel a connection to it, all the better.

Delilah -  By Rachel Rose The stage was lit all over in candles and decorated in white flower petals which set a very atmospheric and haunting stage. All very fitting for the set that followed. The venue was in an old church which couldn't have been more perfect for the vibe of the gig and the feel of the music

: Gig Review

Delilah came on stage in a long white Grecian style dress, looking elegant and beautiful, but teamed up with a pair of white trainers keeping a more "street" (shit word) edge which her music has.  She began singing and although through the first four songs were having evident issues with her sound guy who wasn't helping her at all, she sounded utterly angelic.  She seemed at one with the stage and music getting completely lost in what she was doing. She mentioned a couple songs in how nervous she was, not that you'd ever ever know. She was a professional and put on a hugely enjoyable show. You don't go to a Delilah gig to be raving in your seat, you go to get lost in her moody,


electro sound, and to be caught up in her voice which gives you power and passion and gentle heart break. I cried during her song "Cut Me Down The Middle" which was very relevant to me at the time and I could associate with her pain; she was letting us in on her story which I will always adore about an artist. Her set up on stage was very simple, half electronic sound, half live. Live keys, some guitar and drums. But she also had a dancer come on during the first of the set who performed during one of her songs. He was a beautiful, muscular man doing gentle contemporary style moves. Without sounding too cheesey or cliche, the church and candles and vibe just made him look like an angel. Was a really nice touch. The stage wasn't enormous so he danced around the

Bowie, Lou Reed, Ian McCulloch… I love staying kind of baritone when it makes sense or using a vocal to match a bass line or something because it just makes me happy to hear that low end in a song with the vocal.

Audience. All in all I adored her performance. Very banks-esque vibe and a very enjoyable evening. She is bringing herself back onto the scene indecently, and I wish her every luck. I would go and see her again, no question.  I also caught up with one of her support acts His name was Ady Suleman, and had a sort of reggae maverick sabre vibe. Was just him and a guy playing an acoustic guitar and doing some harmonies. I asked him his main influences "Erica badoo, Amy wine house, Jimmi Hendrix and bob Marley" he takes inspiration from all these artists and it's working. His set left us having a groove in our seats and wanting more. You can find him on soundcloud you can just give him a search and see what you think. He said it was an honour to be

supporting Delilah and said he loved how atmospheric it was and how incredible she sounded. I also bumped into the girls from Stooshe who are big fans of Delilah.  Karis Anderson has been following her career from the beginning and said how much she loves her tone. Courtney Rumbold and Alex Buggs said how inspirational her show was and how much they loved her new material. They had a cheeky photo with me and we laughed about the fact we used to record in the same studio and their pink tour van would get parked outside our window so all we could see was STOOSHE and all things pink lol. Lovely girls to chat to and an incredible night.  -----------------------------------------Special thanks to Nina Malone


Summer is finally here, hurray! There is a lot of buzz about surrounding the green miracle smoothies and I couldn't wait to jump on the wagon and share with you my favorite recipe. Smoothies are a great and easy way to get your intake of Vegetables and fruit whilst retaining the fiber often lost in most juices. I'm a fan of no fructose smoothies, this particular one is perfect for breakfast or post workout, especially when your in the sun a lot.

Green Machine 1/2 Avocado 1 large handful of spinach 200 ml coconut water 1 tbsp hemp protein 1tsp wheatgrass 1tsp Lacuma

This smoothie is the perfect post workout pick me up with a great source of fatty acids, iron, electrolytes and protein. Spinach helps strengthen bones, contains anti-cancer properties and is known to help prevent heart disease with it's high levels of vitamin C and Beta Carotine.

           


These work together to prevent the oxidation of 'unhealthy cholesterol' (LDL) which leads to hardening of the arteries. Avocados are natural antiinflammatory and add a fabulous creamy texture to this smoothie which is completely addictive! Superfood Magic: Read more about what superfoods are here in my blog : http://rhitrition.com/ 2014/07/21/superfoodssuper-good/ Wheatgrass contains 70% chlorophyll which supports the immune system by removing toxins from the blood, body tissues and is high in beta-carotene and other vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, which will help relax sore muscles. Lacuma is a natural and nutritious sweetener with added B Vitamins to maintain energy levels.

Hemp protein is my preferred protein supplementation due to it's complete protein content. Containing all 10 of the essential amino acids needed for muscle growth hemp is highly compatible with the human digestive system and a great addition for the vegans out there. Blend all the ingredients together and serve with some ice in your glass!
