Buzz has been circulating around Void Main since the website launched several weeks ago. Today marks the official launch of  the webshop and the release of the first official lookbook from the label. The graphic based designs draw from varied references from within internet culture, video games and comics. The styling of both the lookbook and video ‘Eternity Glitch, Transhuman warrior’ play with the themes of anonymity, technology, banality with a good dose of genuine weirdness thrown in. The whole presentation of the brand feels refreshingly detached from most of what is going on in fashion and/or streetwear.

GORGEOUS CHILDREN – GRASSNLEAN DREAMS from Max Gardner on Vimeo. (WARNING THIS VIDEO IS ONLY WORK SPACE IF YOU HAVE A COOL BOSS)

GORGEOUS CHILDREN are: FACE VEGA and GILA MONSTA. Together they make atmospheric rap that conjure up mental images of backalley fashion shows and workplace substance abuse. I snapped the above photos on set for their first music video GRASSNLEAN DREAMS, a double-cupped affair that uses more fake blood than a B-Movie and has more jawnz than most ‘WSHH’ startups.

You can stream or download their new full-length release “Heaven to a Fool” via PurpleTapePedigree.  Describing music through words is not my forte, so I’ll quote what the homie Geng-Grizzly says about it.

“Have you ever seen the religious hallucination scene in Altered States with the fast clouds and the kaleidoscopic eye goat and the seemingly forced-upon sex atop stone podium to the circle of swelling brass lungs? This is the audio version of that, but just on mind benders.Face Vega plays the sadistic bandit running around with curved blade in-hand, opening beastly throats by which to fill his arsenal of double cups. He sits in his lucid kingdom with one hand outstretched to charred tokens of deism, the other palming the pink’ish wig-mess of an unclothed, female Fashion Institute drop-out as she gingerly cleans a set of rose gold fronts. Gila Monsta posts in front with long shirttails, but instead of a frightening set of blaring horns, he applies math and science to marrying off distortion and nougatine slabs of bass. The end result, after 12 ultra-vivid scenes, is a feeling of beyond truth (something like reading an entire Dr. Bronner’s label). Floatation tank rap.”
