Some new tunes from Meg Myers, The Hunna, Taylor Janzen, Slothrust and more.
MEG MYERS - 'Torniquet'
Meg, who grew up in a Jehovah’s Witness household, moved to Los Angeles when she was 19 where she recorded her debut album, "Sorry," that spawned Top 15 and Top 20 alternative radio hits. Her LP due out July 20, "Take Me To The Disco," has earned early praise from NPR Music, Stereogum and Billboard. The New York Times praised the first song to be released off the record, “Numb,” hailing Meg’s use of "feedback-frothed power chords," and Uproxx called “Numb” “as powerful as it is unsettling.” Her new record is brimming with rocked out soundscapes that screams with an intensity you can't ignore, even in its most quiet moments.
CHEAT CODES x LITTLE MIX - 'Only You'
EDM trio Cheat Codes, along with Little Mix, has dropped the new video for their track "Only You," which tells the story of an enchanting LGBTQ love story.
THE HUNNA - 'DARE'
Since releasing their debut record, which peaked at #13 on the official album charts, The Hunna has gone on to sell almost 50,000 copies and accumulate over 100 million streams. The band began the new year with two huge nights at London’s Brixton Academy, where they sold almost 10,000 tickets over the two dates. In 2018 alone, they have toured North America, Europe and Australia where they played to sold-out crowds in major cities such as New York, LA, Sydney and Berlin. The band has shared singles titled "Summer," "Flickin' Your Hair," and the title track "Dare" with fans before the album's release.
TAYLOR JANZEN - 'Waiting Room'
Growing up, Taylor had a religious upbringing in a small town outside of Winnipeg, attending a small school up until graduation. Her family and friends and those around her never talked to one another about difficult things they were experiencing in life; and if they ever needed help, they turned to religion for answers. Unable to talk through her issues in mental health, Taylor turned to songwriting as an outlet and, as a result, with each song on "Interpersonal," we're granted an intimate and almost painstakingly brazen glimpse into the most heart wrenching pages of her diary on this forthcoming EP, due Aug. 10, 2018. Her first track, "Stations," garnered praise from The New York Times.
SLOTHRUST - 'Double Down'
Composed of lead singer Leah Wellbaum, in addition to drummer Will Gorin and bassist Kyle Bann, Slothrust has established themselves as a bold, brawny, indie-rock band. Finding their rise to success in the Brooklyn indie scene, Slothrust has captivated audiences with their first two LPs: "Feels Your Pain" and "Of Course You Do." The band also had their song "7:30 AM" featured as the theme song of FX's "You're the Worst." Serving sounds mimicking that of a mixture between pop and rock, Slothrust has embarked on sold-out headlining tours, performed at festivals, and has toured with Highly Suspect in both the US and Europe. The band is dropping their new album, "The Pact," on Sept. 14.
SIGRID - 'Schedules'
From the tiny town of Alesund in Norway, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, Sigrid has been creating a world which emboldens her followers, displaying outstanding songwriting ability with hard-hitting and empowering words, laced over unexpected and daring melodies. Sigrid was chosen by 170 influential music experts to win the BBC Sound of 2018, the first non-American or non-British winner in the poll’s 16-year history (previous winners including Adele and Florence and the Machine). With 5.2M monthly Spotify listeners, Sigrid burst into the public consciousness in February 2017, with the “song of the summer” Don’t Kill My Vibe (The Times & The Telegraph), which caught the attention of Lorde and Elton John and captured the imagination of a generation. The singer is set to take the stage at Panorama Music Festival in New York, which runs from July 27-29.
POST PRECIOUS - 'Crown'
LA duo Post Precious (Alex Winston + Max Hershenow of MS MR) dropped their "Crown" EP today. The duo just emerged in Fall 2017 and have collaborated with artists like Ryn Weaver and Charli XCX and have covered Harry Styles.
L.I.F.T. - 'Dressed in Black'
L.I.F.T, the "emo hip hop" group from San Diego, dropped a new video today. The group recently signed to Pete Wentz, owned by DCD2 Records, dropped their debut EP, and toured with Bishop Briggs, in addition to playing Warped this summer. Plus, they're hitting the road with Fall Out Boy this September.
MR LITTLE JEANS - 'Sofi Tukker Remix'
Norwegian dance-pop songstress Monica Birkenes, otherwise known as Mr. Little Jeans, has garnered the attention of many with her soulful talent. Claiming recognition with her personal covers of Beyoncé and Arcade Fire, Mr. Little Jeans began to make music of her own. With a sound similar to that of Kylie Minogue, Mr. Little Jeans has defined herself within the dance-pop genre. Her latest track was remixed by Sofi Tukker.
