Icon: Lissy Trullie

Have you ever caught youself staring at a stranger? Like that rare moment when you see someone who looks like a star? This happened to me while on the hunt for pictures online. I'd seen this tall red head from time to time. I assumed she was a model and I loved her look. She wore things like loose white t-shirts with vests or mens jackets with a fedora. Her bright bob and Bob Dylan-esque attire stayed in my mind. All in all she looked like somebody. On myspace I found her music during a boredon driven stranger stalking session. Lissy Trullie sings with the boyish swagger of a '60s frontman (with a touch of Liz Phair) and plays guitar a bit like one too. Her band (Erin Krause, Harley Vierra-Newton and Lindsay Key) harbors key pieces of 1960s folkishness making their music a vintage yet modern affair. They have yet to release the Self Taught Learner E.P. So be on the lookout. It's bound to be amazing.

Next time you see someone who looks like somebody keep an eye out for them again. They might be doing something amazing.

Elle magazine recently featured her in a photoshoot. It was all black and white except for her hair. Really cool.
