So Sixties: The Like

I've been a fan of the Los Angeles-based band The Like since they first began self-releasing EPs.  Their look has definitely changed over time (as well as the line-up), ranging from dreamy bohemian to edgy '80s (complete with ripped black leggings) to the current '60s mod chic.  Their sound has also somewhat changed to reflect the look -- which is very reminiscent of It-Girls of the swinging '60s, Pattie Boyd and Twiggy.

In an interview with Gotham magazine, lead singer Z. Berg (who sports a Twiggy-style blonde bob) explained the inspiration:
I’ve been a lover and wearer of makeup since I was 10 years old. At this point I’ve got it down pretty well. I’m definitely inspired by girls like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick and Mia Farrow, but basically my concept when getting dolled up is to exaggerate everything.

Their video for "He's Not a Boy" is so incredibly reminiscent of the party scene from "A Hard Day's Night", no?
