Halsey and her Badlands producer Lido teamed up again to produce and drop a surprise track for fans: "Tokyo Narita." In the two-minute-long freestyle demo, Halsey sings of listening to Kanye West and Drake and going to Vogue Parties. The song could be about her relationship with the producer, or it could be a song about an alternative relationship that follows in the style of Badlands.
DNCE frontman and former JoBro Joe Jonas and model Ashley Graham get touchy-feely in DNCE's follow-up to their hit "Cake By The Ocean." "Toothbrush" shows off the singer's strong falsetto while keeping up the band's funky image.
On Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Sweetgreen's Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Performances included Eagles Of Death Metal, Blondie, Mac Demarco, The 1975, and Halsey. Each performance was unique and special and not even the rain and mud could ruin the high.
Andy Black released his debut solo album The Shadow Side over the weekend. The album combines elements of emo, pop-punk, 80s goth, and electronic to make an album that is uniquely Andy. The album also features collaborators such as Ashton Irwin, Rian Dawson, Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Juliet Simms, and Matt Skiba. Overall, it's an album the Black Veil Brides vocalist should be proud to call his own.
You might know Michael McGough as the guitarist and backing vocalist from Being As An Ocean. But his new solo project, Heart Of Gold, is the absolute opposite of post-hardcore. McGough showcases his voice in the synth-pop song "Adore You." It's no Being As An Ocean; it's an amazing indie pop song.
Who is excited for midnight? "Beautiful Pain" is the fourth track to be released off Andy Black's debut solo album The Shadow Side. The rest can be heard at midnight tonight! The song has an electronic beat, but the lyrics are just as poetic and emo as you want in an Andy Black song.
Kesha. Is. Back. With a little manipulation, Kesha was able to record a single with electronic artist Zedd. The song, a cover of Zedd's 2015 song "True Colors," is Kesha's new battle cry. Kesha's voice is powerful in the song about not holding back and not staying down.
Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun, long time collaborators, teamed up to make a music video for MGK's song "All Night Long" from his sophomore album General Administration. The video features a plethora of attractive girls, and if you look close enough, Mod Sun makes a cameo.
Over the weekend, Pvris dropped the Deluxe Version of their debut album, White Noise. The new version includes the original ten songs from the album, their newest single "You And I," a stripped-down version of "You And I," and a new song "Empty."
On Wednesday night, Good Charlotte returned to the historic 9:30 Club, where they attended concerts as a kid, to perform an amazing jam-packed set. Their set included new and old songs, and songs that the band has not played in a good ten years. Good Charlotte also brought their pop-punk prodigies Waterparks along, and I was able to meet my best friend Awsten again.
