One of my favorite up-and-coming artists right now is BETWEEN FRIENDS. After hearing their debut single — “suburban wonderland” — my senior year of high school, I was immediately drawn to their sound. I dove head first into the rabbit hole that was their Spotify artist page and wondered how this band, that I now adored, wasn’t more popular. When scrolling through their artist page, I noticed that they only had their one single released, and it had a little over 1 million streams. 1 million streams is a significant amount don’t get me wrong, but it blew my mind that they weren’t amassing more buzz. I was stunned. Their self dubbed “laptop-dream pop” was something I couldn’t get out of my head. I found myself reverting back to “suburban wonderland” over and over again. Now, they not only have that single, but they also have an EP titled, we just need some time together.
One week and four studio sessions was all it took for Logic — with the help of producer No I.D. — to record his seventh and final studio album, No Pressure. The album was then edited, mixed, and mastered to perfection over the course of the year that followed. On July 16, 2020, Logic single-handedly broke the internet with the announcement of his retirement on Twitter and Instagram. He posted the album cover of No Pressure with the caption, “Officially announcing my retirement with the release of ‘No Pressure’ executive produced by No I.D. July 24th… It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.” This post shocked his fan base — also known as the Rattpack. Comments and tweets came flooding in with overwhelming support, sadness, and love.
Relationships between sisters form a special kind of bond. For many, sisters are not only family, but a best friend.
Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer, or 5SOS, raked in thousands upon thousands of fans after they went on the Take Me Home tour with British pop band One Direction back in 2013. They released their first EP Somewhere New in 2012, and in 2014, they released their self-titled debut studio album 5 Seconds of Summer. Since then, they have only skyrocketed further into fame by making a name for themselves. Their notoriety has led them to their newest studio album, CALM. This album has more lyrical depth than any of their other albums, with the band being vulnerable, honest, and authentically themselves.
As summer draws near, music festivals and artists typically blast social media and their websites with promotional videos and pre-sale ticket options. But social distancing guidelines issued to stop the spread of COVID-19 — a disease that has taken the lives of more than 323,000 globally — has taken center stage. Although many fans are sympathetic to the regulations, they are bummed at the slew of music festivals and concerts that are either being cancelled or postponed. Many are worried about the long-term impact of the pandemic on the music scene.
With dreamy, soft vocals over a relaxed electronic beat, it’s difficult not to fall head-over-heels in love with pop duo X Lovers. This duo consists of London Jackson and Jacob Ames. They are childhood best friends who met in fourth grade in their hometown of Nevada City, California, and have been inseparable since then. Jackson is the vocalist and tends to most of the songwriting while Ames produces all their music. They are stars on the rise and — in my eyes — they deserve more appreciation.
With all this extra time — due to everything that is happening in the world right now — you more than likely have found yourself scrolling for countless minutes, sometimes even hours, searching for that perfect movie to cozy up to and watch. Given the endless amount of options, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite movies paired with the streaming services to watch them on. Movies can take us to a world away from our own and help us forget our reality, even if it’s just for a little while. These five movies never fail to totally immerse me into the world they each have created — worlds completely different and far away from my own — that tell an original story with it’s own set of circumstances and obstacles to tackle. They will blow your expectations out of the water and are guaranteed to become some of your new favorites.
These past two and a half years, Timothée Chalamet has created more buzz than actors who have been in the business for decades. It all started in 2017, with his Oscar-nominated role as Elio Perlman in Call Me by Your Name. He has been one of the most talked about people in Hollywood. His success is even being compared to that of a young Leonardo DiCaprio. His on-camera likable personality reflects his real life
Halsey, released her third studio album Manic on Jan. 17, 2020. This album was drawn from multiple personal experiences that helped her create a glimpse into her life, some of those experiences being her tumultuous on-again off-again relationship with G-Eazy, her love and appreciation for movies, and accepting her identity being bisexual, biracial, and bipolar. She takes us inside the mind of Ashley Frangipane, not Halsey. She is more honest and raw on this album than on any of her projects in the past. This gives her listeners a front row ticket to the chaotic, lovely, and bustling life that is her reality.
