Marvin #1

In this turbulent time, where we’ve seen our favourite music and culture magazines shut up shop, the founder of legendary titles, Ray Gun and NYLON, Marvin Scott Jarrett is bucking the norm and launching MARVIN. Independent and not listening to anyone else’s rules, this brand new magazine uses the best writers, photographers and creators across the world. MARVIN speaks to the planet’s biggest music acts, the most exciting fashion designers and cutting edge artists. Focusing on a truly global audience, the magazine bounces from LA to London, and Berlin to Mumbai via Tokyo.

For this inaugural issue, cover star Yungblud poses for Perou’s lens and speaks to editor Josh Jones about what fuels his incredible energy, and 24k Goldn is shot by Christian Witkin as we explore his childhood and what it’s like to have the world’s number 1 song. MARVIN’S enviable contributor list includes some of independent publishing’s most exciting names —not least, Bricks Magazine founder Tori West, who visits friend Ashnikko at home, and Trench Magazine founder Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson gets under the hood of Indian hip-hop. Suede co-founder Mat Osman discovers the new guitar gangs of Denmark Street, and we also have a very rare sit down in Tokyo with Takahiro Miyashita, more commonly known as The Soloist. Want to know more? Get the magazine.

Printed on oversized premium paper and sealed in a biodegradable envelope, MARVIN is already a collectors edition. Looking to the future in every way, while celebrating the influences that have come before. MARVIN is a welcome new voice in the world of independent publishing.
