No one on planet earth could know more about the endurance needed for hours and hours of sweating it out in the church of music than DJ Harvey, the UK dance music legend whose sets famously last until the very wee hours of the morning. And since Garrett Leight California Optical has become one of the key sunglasses brand of choice for the never-ending summer spectacle of festival season, they hit up Harvey as part of their #GLCOICONS series to find out what it takes to conquer the relentless rhythm and still preserve your sanity and your style. “There isn’t a spiritual bone in my body, by the way. I think that consciousness is a byproduct of electro-chemical reaction in the brain,” he says. “But you can tap into that stuff, the sort of symbiotic wobble that makes you feel really good.
