the free self-published print zine created by bands, illustrators and young creatives. cool brother is an ever expanding family.

Artwork: Concrete Hours

Not much chlorophyll here.

Cold air splinters your spine, as you keep on walking. Dogs bark, street light tusks fold over the sky casting long, forlorn shadows. It’s a stark town, is our’s – but where there are people, there is warmth. As the Concrete Hours collide, every wall is evergreen with creative potential.

Enter with us as some of our favourite artists draw from this visceral grit theme. Matt Martin, Marc Vallée and Cole Flynn Quirke photograph London from different sides of the brickwork, while Steph Dutton, John Strover and Alfie Wheatley make collages from it.

 

Creating a contrast from the rest of the zine, we got to know some of music’s most exciting acts. Go on tour with Little Dragon, spend Tuesdays at Puma Blue’s house, while Gorillaz’ 2D chats about Tokyo and jail.
