Well darlings, the much anticipated June 1 has come and gone without a new album from The 1975. To be honest, I felt it was a reach to assume the first signs of life from the Manchester quartet would be as daring as an entire album — but that doesn’t mean they didn’t make a bold comeback.

In late 2016, Bryan Sammis announced he would be putting his solo project Olivver the Kid (also stylized ØV) to rest “maybe forever. maybe for a long time. maybe a short time.” Now, a short (or long) year later, ØV has returned with new single “Bitter.” Continue reading “Olivver the Kid Makes a ‘Bitter’ Comeback”

Alright babes, Walk The Moon… IS. BACK.
As promised, the boys released their first single, “One Foot,” just hours ago, coming back from an unexpected year-long hiatus. While their announcement of new music was rather quiet, “One Foot” is all the roaring proclamation the band needs to declare their return.

For fans who first became familiar with Walk The Moon in 2015 when their Talking is Hard single “Shut up and Dance” was at its peak popularity, their unexpected hiatus, announced in April 2016, may have seemed quite abrupt. They were beginning to attract a whole new fan base and ended up cancelling a tour in the midst of a wave of success.

For those of you who missed out on the
