Fashion / Sound Off: 10 Questions with Lary
Lary, lary, quite contrary. How do your lyrics go? Excuse us while we drift off into another dimension while we jam to Lary (aka our new favorite Berlin-based artist and all-around babe you need to know). After an exclusive show at the Forever 21 Berlin store opening last month, she sat down with us to tell us about her fans, her musical musings and her take on Berlin fashion. Check out the interview below and keep scrolling to listen to her newest single “System”!
Tell us about yourself!
Hi, I’m Lary! I’m a singer-songwriter currently living in Berlin.
Where do you see yourself performing in 10 years?
Madison Square Garden or maybe in my treehouse by the beach for my 3 husbands and 8 children. We’ll see.
Tell us about your fans!
The more I perform, the more I discover who they areMy fans are sick! We da #FutureDeutscheWelle . <3
Who is your music idol?
I really love J*Davey. Their music kinda changed everything for me.
What music did you listen to as a kid?
I was very influenced by my uncle’s taste. He is a mad music lover, and for a little pocket money he would always make me memorize song lyrics of the songs he thought I should never forget. He had this old Wurlitzer music box which had The Doors, The Stones, Janis Joplin, The Birds, Jim Steinman and Bob Dylan. I don’t remember if I liked it back then, but it’s still the only kind of music that helps me when I feel lost.
What’s your style mantra?
I don’t think that fashion is something that one should give too much thought – it should just be authentic, no matter what you like or how you would define your style. You should be wearing your clothes, not the other way round.
What epitomizes Berlin fashion to you?
Berlin fashion comes with a certain type of attitude. To me, that attitude is always the loudest and linking element.
What’s your favorite part of Berlin?
I’d say no matter what it is you are looking for, you’ll find it in Berlin.
What’s trending in Berlin right now?
I wouldn’t know…or care.
