I’m just going to say it — “Heavenward” is the song I hope will be played at my funeral. That may sound morbid (which I am), but this song captures the perfect balance of celebration and hope that is lacking in most tribute songs for passed loved ones.

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.

Between my obsession with The 1975, my infatuation with Wolf Alice and my fascination with The Japanese House, I’m basically Dirty Hit Records’ bitch. I trust my eardrums almost entirely to Jamie Oborne.
So when one of the record label’s newest signees, Pale Waves, released their first single “There’s a Honey,” it was honestly no surprise to me that I ended up having it on repeat for three days. After living off of the one single for six months, they finally released a second single, “Television Romance,” … and I honestly feel like I’m still listening to “There’s a Honey” on repeat.

But Amber Bain seems in no rush to satiate her fans’ appetites with an LP. Continue reading “The Japanese House is Somebody I’m Happy to Have Found”
While LANY is arguably referred to as an alternative band, one thing is for sure — they are the epitomical sound of the millennial generation. From their lyricism to their composition to their song titles, this synth-laden album checks all the boxes for mass appeal to teens and 20-somethings. Continue reading “LANY Makes a Debut Album Perfect for Millennials”
If there’s one thing you should know about Wolf Alice, it’s to never put them in a box. Their Grammy nominated debut album “My Love Is Cool” bounded between pacifistic indie-folk to turbulent grunge from track to track. If “Moaning Lisa Smile” was their ode to grunge revival, “Yuk Foo” is their jab into riot grrrl punk… except with boys, too. Continue reading “Wolf Alice’s ‘Yuk Foo’ Takes No Prisoners”
