In a new interview, the 30-year-old Stranger Things star talked about rocking a wig and sunglasses, making him almost unrecognizable on stage

He continued: ‘And what it turned out to be is just a really fun character to play live on stage. And it allows me to be less self-conscious, I guess — and it’s kind of an element of surprise, too.”

When asked specifically if he chose to wear a wig so people would stop talking about Steve Harrington’s iconic haircut, Keery replied, “No, not really.”

“It’s mainly about disguising myself in general,” the artist insisted.

The actor also said he thinks “a lot of showmanship has been lost in specifically indie music over the past 10-15 years.”

I think there’s a lot of showmanship in pop music and pop r’n’b, and so I’m trying to kind of get a different take on what an indie rock band can be, I guess,” he noted.

Keery will release his second album Decide in September, three years after his 2019 debut Twenty Twenty.
