Under Your Skin, Let Me Fall In by MonkeyOfTheCity
Under Your Skin, Let Me Fall In
This is a fan art for the amazing, amazing British group called "Vaults". I discovered them last year when they were supporting Paolo Nutini on his Europe Tour and I instantly fell in love. After the concert, they came out for autographs and I ran towards them like a maniac. The lead singer, Blythe, was really really friendly and we even had a little chat, although I was really nervous and didn´t knew how to act. That my English skills decided to disappear on the spot didn´t really help either. But hey, I got a signed EP :happybounce: . Now they landed a part in the 50 Shades Of Grey Soundtrack which scored second place on i Tunes, so I decided to extend my support above likes and follows on various social media. If you are a fan of musicians like London Grammar, Florence & The Machine or Kyla La Grange, you should definitely check them out (links down below).

Moving on to the drawing. I tried to capture their style of music, but also the way they already present themselves ("image", if you want to call it like that). Their music is overall very melancholic, but Blythe has a beautiful, bright voice which lays some lightness over the dark electronic beats (also, they use strings and bells and all that), so I chose a pale figure on black background. In my opinion, Blythe´s remarkable hair is a kind of signature, so I used that as well. 
I don´t have the feeling I really nailed it, because it somehow reminds me ore of an indie album cover or something like that. I thought about adding organs like a heart or an aorta....dk. Please tell me what you think, I am really uncertain.
