volumemag In 2008 Volume travelled to sunny Birmingham to source creative people in art, music and fashion for an issue dedicated to the city. Volume 4, The Birmingham Issue, was commissioned by Aston Villa FC to celebrate the arts alongside featuring the latest sports news from the football club. We discovered a massive creative scene. Birmingham has seen the birth of an array of new bands and we featured an unsigned five-piece called The Scarlet Harlots who were creating quite a stir. The boys have since reformed as Troumaca and were the first band signed to Gilles Peterson's label Brownswood Recordings where they have released their debut album and a number of singles. Editor Kay Wrate @kwrate spoke to the boys. Portrait by Sam Burrows @samboburrows www.troumaca.co.uk 5d

They took our cover photo which presents a lone male figure walking on a rooftop looking on to a sun-drenched cityscape. The duo also photographed our fashion feature with jewellery designer Super Fertile, who made a collection of large and ornate gold and silver necklaces inspired by different countries.

volumemag We commissioned the masterful Kate Moross to design Volume's cover for Issue 2. The theme for the edition was 'performance' and we wanted to feature our musicians on the cover. She made a beautiful composition showing their names in complex and sublime typography which remains a timeless piece of work. We have long been fans of Moross, who has worked with a vast array of brands to amplify their image with her incredible style www.katemoross.com 1w

volumemag As part of our retrospective this month Volume revisits 'Creative & Writing'. These pages explore the work of artists and writers, covering anything from short stories, poetry, painting, photography and drawing. Today we are featuring the work by Alex Ball, an artist whose work caught our eye at Central St. Martins School of Art. Since art school Ball's work has been exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Show in London and the Stedelijk Museum in The Netherlands amongst others. This piece, titled Pelt Couple II, is an intricate small scale oil painting that portrays a figure in the foetal position with the face obscured. The Catlin Art Prizewinner's work often depicts lone figures doing absurd activities in unsettling scenarios. For more info visit www.alex-ball.com 2w

volumemag Emil and Jack aka Shoestring Ballers have been using the many delights of London to make a series of short films. Be it conversating with Poundland punters in Peckham, borrowing Boris Bikes or cooking cheesecake, these two bring fun and lots of laughter to the screen. With an (almost complete) season of films to watch for free online, the lads show no sign of stopping. They've also got a nice Instagram @shoestringballers Volume caught up with the duo to find out what's new. Check out their interview on the blog www.volumemag.blogspot.com Words by @rubyvolume 3w
