Nick Diamonds / Islands' Style

I can't believe I've had this blog for almost a year now and I haven't posted about Nick Diamonds of Islands. They're one of my favorite bands, and he's one of my favorite lead singers. His style is fun and loud, and has definitely inspired several of my past guitar straps. 
On stage, he's usually wearing something pretty glam + indie, and the rest of the band is matching him. Most bands don't do this anymore and I think this makes Islands much more fun to see live. And in my opinion, this is the most fun band I have ever seen live (many many times).
Also- I saw him on a plane recently (!) and he was wearing a hot pink hoodie and his signature multi-colored high tops. Awesome.
Return To The Sea tour. I loved the all-white outfits the band wore. Very spacey/futuristic. I'm believe they were designed by Rebecca Turbow. This is what he was wearing the first time I saw them at SXSW. Great costumes + insanely catchy songs + onstage good times and theatrics + crowd participation = instant love for me.

Arm's Way tour. They changed from all-white to all-black. A cool look, I think symbolic of the darker sound to this album.

Vapours tour (currently on!). Nick had this cape made by Christian Joy, who is famous for her costumes for Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They're coming to Seattle tomorrow, and I CANNOT WAIT.
