Khruangbin bassist and singer Laura Lee never performs in the same outfit twice.

On stage, Lee and her bandmates, guitarist and vocalist Mark Speer and drummer Donald "DJ" Johnson, are instantly recognisable. Lee and Speer wear matching jet black Cleopatra wigs, and Lee, who is also known by her stage name and alter-ego Laura Leezy, insists on intimidatingly high heels.

Clothing has become an integral part of Lee's performance; after seeing Elton John do four costume changes during one of his shows, she vowed to don at least two extraordinary outfits per gig.  She has worn quite the array of Rosa Bloom looks, and we're in good company:  Laura and her stylist, Megan Boyes, not only collaborate with big names such as Alberta Ferretti, Christopher Kane, and Mary Katrantzou, but also love to seek out up-and-coming designers from around the world when planning outfits for Khruangbin's tours.

"Part of the goal with the wigs was so that we could be recognisable one way on stage and then unrecognisable off stage.  Even now, playing in front of 1,500 people can be terrifying.  So the wigs and the stage costumes became a sort of armour.  They also put me in a specific zone; it gets me ready to be in a performance space — to go out there and do my thing.”

"All these clothes in the world, crafted and designed by artistic people, they deserve to be played with and not kept in a box in the attic. They should get to have a moment of their own."
