Finn Matthews’ enamors fans with “A Million And One”

If you’re in need of a good acoustic jam, may we suggest the newest single from Finn Matthews, “A Million And One.” Fans of artists like Shawn Mendes and Charlie Puth are sure to be enamored with Matthews’ delicate vocals accompanied solely by a guitar. The simplicity is what makes the track so stunning and has you craving more.

“A Million and One” dives into what it’s like to be taken for granted but also taking someone else for granted, not realizing that what you need may be right in front of you. Written with Elijah Blake, a mentor to Matthew’s who has penned hits including Usher’s “Climax” and Rihanna’s “No Love Allowed,” this new single is just a taste of what’s to come from Finn Matthew who is set to release new music over the next few months. In the meantime, give the track a spin in the player above.

Bad Rabbits return with “F On The J-O-B” and announce new album

Acclaimed R&B trio Bad Rabbits haven’t released new music in over two years, but just yesterday the band announced Mimi, a 7-track album set for release on August 10th. From the record comes their newest single titled “F on the J-O-B.” The track is in support of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, featuring an animated video that addresses sexual harassment in the workplace. Vocalist Fredua Boakye shares, “The song and the video shame and mock the men who feel entitled to sex just because they are attracted to a woman.”

The video also introduces fans to Mimi who’s described in a recent press release as a “fictional short-haired, dark-skinned, social media-obsessed, voluptuous vixen.” Her character is one that can be found as the center of the album as she represents a modern manic pixie dream girl.

You can check out the album art and track listing for Mimi below. Fans can also purchase a limited edition vinyl copy of “F on the J-O-B,” available for purchase on June 8th.

The singer/songwriter producer dropped his first single “The Other” back in 2015 and has since released a culmination of tracks that tell a story a bit out of order. The story, referred to as the ‘I Met You When I Was 18’ playlist, follows Lauv moving to New York City at 18 and falling in love for the first time, figuring out both he was as a person but also who he was with this significant other and how the two intertwined.

His most popular track from the batch of singles is “I Like Me Better” which has garnered over 420k streams on Spotify and can be heard on commercial spots including promos for TV Land’s hit show Younger*. Now Lauv has concluded the playlist with the final four singles titled “Bracelet,” “Paranoid,” “Never Not,” and “Enemies.” Listen to the full playlist below!

Album Review:: Saved | Now, Now

It’s been 6 long years since Now, Now released their emo indie album Threads, that gave us the contagious taste of aggressive strumming and vocals filled with ethereal emotional tension. With years to write and produce the follow up, there comes pressure to deliver the perfect album of originality, newness, and pleasing the masses. Though Now, Now already teased us a year in advance with “SGL” that left us anticipating more. The first single only showed a glimpse of Saved–some slow ease into the departure of the familiar gritty sounds of guitar and the first introductions of an indie pop beat.

It’s not an easy feat to switch music stylings, unless you’re Taylor Swift of course. Though Now, Now saw an opening with Saved. With the introduction of the new softer acoustic tones and upbeat synths, Saved is a more subdued emo that focuses more on moody upbeat melodies. It’s more trendy indie pop. Tracks like “MJ”, which pays tribute to the King of Pop, and “Yours” showcases this new direction with electric melodies at the forefront. Though, not songs you’d want to dance to if you listen closely, which creates a bit of confusion. Instead we enter a new realm of taking serious lyrics of love and creating a new feeling of melancholy around it.

However, the duo behind Now, Now have not completely ditched their emo roots that brought their claim to fame. Dalager’s unique and lazy alto vocals float heavy melancholic lyrics about lovers through songs like “Can’t Help Myself” and “Window.” You’ll find yourself coming to terms with a road trip album with songs like “Drive,” which is a personal favorite of mine. Emotional tension delivers strong in the midst of synths, drum machines, and vocals as smoke in a smoke filled room. We see this in the title track, “Saved,” where as the tempo builds, so does the electric drum beats and echoed vocals. Meanwhile, “AZ” will entice older fans to revisit and unravel the layered vocals of Dalager’s the synth lead guitar solos.

Now, Now delivers a solid album that maybe older fans weren’t expecting, but it gives the band much needed space to shape their own style and fill an cross between of indie pop and emo music that doesn’t overlap often. I hope to take Saved on solo road trip into the horizon one of these days.

Release Date: May 5th, 2018
Rating: 3.5/5
Runtime: ~45 minutes

Track listing:
1. SGL
2. MJ
3. Can’t Help Myself
4. AZ
5. Window
6. Holy Water
7. Yours
8. Saved
9. Knowme
10. Drive
11. Set It Free
