TREVOR DANIEL RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ALONE”

New EP “That Was Then” To Be Released in November

“Trevor Daniel’s Emotive Music Is Selling Out Shows and Topping Charts” — Rolling Stone

“Chartbreaker Artist of January 2020” — Billboard Magazine

Houston bred/LA based singer, songwriter Trevor Daniel releases his new single “Alone” along with the music video today via ALAMO/RCA Records. The video is directed by Danny Ghost. “Alone” is the first release for Trevor through his new ALAMO/RCA Records deal. “Alone” which interpolates the Alice DJ smash “Better Off Alone” follows Trevor’s most recent release Fingers Crossed” with Julia Michaels which was released to much celebration earlier this year. Additionally, Trevor has announced his new EP That Was Then” will be released this November.

When asked about “Alone” Trevor says, “The original song by Alice DJ was a song that I’ve listened to nonstop since elementary school. On the way to a studio session, I was listening to the song and got inspired to do an interpretation of it because of the feelings I was going through from a breakup at the time.”

About “That Was Then,” Trevor says, “This project is essentially a bunch of things made throughout quarantine, inspired by the random points and emotions of where my head was throughout the year in comparison to where I’m at now….THAT WAS THEN”.

Fresh off of star-turning performances at both Lollapalooza and Life is Beautiful, Trevor is slated for additional performances at Firefly this weekend and Outside Lands next month.

Earlier this year Trevor released his debut album Nicotine,  a ten track, tightly produced album which includes the anthemic single “Past Life” which was co-produced by Grammy winning songwriter and Billie Eilish collaborator, Finneas O’Connell. The Billboard Magazine “Chartbreaker” artist titled the album Nicotine to reflect on the addictive nature of love and heartbreak.  Originally from Houston, TX, (now based in LA) Trevor became an artist to watch with the success of his melancholic trap-infused single “Falling” — which after a second boost on Tik Tok, peaked at #25 on the Hot 100 charts and in the Top 20 in over 40 countries becoming a Global artist almost overnight.

About Trevor Daniel

Trevor Daniel inhabits his songs like a method actor. He recalls exactly where he was, what he saw, and how he felt as he replays each moment and memory with a vivid level of lyrical detail, projecting a first-person perspective and immersing his entire being within smoked-out alternative pop soundscapes boosted by trap grit. Through the haze, the Houston, TX multi platinum singer, songwriter, and producer forges an unbreakable bond with listeners. In 2018, he caught the attention of Internet Money Founder and super producer Taz Taylor [XXXTentacion, Juice WRLD]. Together, they cooked up “Falling” along with KCsupreme and Charlie Handsome.  The track took the internet and the culture by storm, generating 1.1 billion Spotify streams, going triple-platinum, and cracking the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. During 2020, he dropped his full-length debut, Nicotine. It immediately incited tastemaker praise from OnesToWatch and Teen Vogue, while Rolling Stone christened him “a truly modern star.” On its heels, he teamed up with Selena Gomez for “Past Life,” generating hundreds of millions of streams in the process. Along the way, he contributed to the Spongebob Soundtrack and performed at LollapaloozaOutside LandsFirefly Festival, and more. Collaborations followed with everyone from Ty Dolla $ign, Bebe Rexha, Becky G and Tainy to Zara Larsson, Travis Barker, and Don Diablo before he served up “Fingers Crossed” with Julia Michaels in 2021. Now, Trevor welcomes audiences deeper into his world on a series of 2021 singles for ALAMO/RCA Records ignited by “Alone.”

RENCE — “AWOOO!”

“Rence is in his own lane, defying the stigma that an artist has to be bound by any one genre.” – FLAUNT

“In a way that few artists can, Rence has redefined his sound with every new release.” – ONES TO WATCH

“Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.” – LYRICAL LEMONADE

Critically acclaimed, buzzing singer, songwriter and produce Rence is back today with the heartfelt new single “AWOOO!” Get it HERE via Epic Records.

Hopeful and romantic on the surface, the breakout star’s latest release is actually a breakup song, even if not immediately apparent in the lyrics. “I love when you howl at the moon, I wanna lay here watching you,” the 23-year-old coos over dreamy guitars. “Til I’m howling too, like AWOOO!”

“I actually wrote it as a bookend to a relationship,” Rence says. “But it turned into a love song even as a goodbye.” Somber but full of life and color, “AWOOO!” became about the realization that even true love can fade. It covers the kind of complex emotional territory that Rence has tread since bursting onto the pop music scene while still studying at NYU.

“AWOOO!” follows the exuberant anthem “Endless,” which was released at the top of 2021 and showcases his trademark vulnerability and emotional nuance. With more new music on the horizon, he continues to create a kaleidoscopic pop sound, while experimenting with everything from electro to hip hop.

Over the last few years, Rence has established himself as one of pop’s most unguarded young stars. When he isn’t crafting transparently emotional singles like “Strawberry Blonde” and “Type 2,” he’s lifting the veil on his artistic process in a series of TikTok videos. At the same time, the artist/producer has also stayed busy with collaborations, recording music with Sarah Barrios, Alex Port, Chloe Lilac and Johan Lenox. Since debuting, Rence has amassed more than 50 million cumulative streams and continues to expand his fan base with each release. “AWOOO!” further builds out the emotional complexity and intricate instrumentals at the core of his songs, reminding listeners that there are poignant messages behind every infectious melody.

ABOUT RENCE:

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. He first introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink, featuring standout single “Baby Blue.” In 2019, after signing to Epic Records, he followed with the release of “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] and his major label debut EP, FALL 2019. Over the last year, his consistent output continued with the bold and buzz-y “hate u, btw,” “Type 2,” “Tears in December,” “Sometimes Things Just Fall Apart,” “Strawberry Blonde” and “Endless.” With over 50 million streams and counting, Rence has received acclaim from the likes of Pigeons and Planes (who named him “Best New Artist” Dec 2019), The FADER, Lyrical Lemonade, Nylon, Billboard, V Magazine, Paper, i-D, Wonderland, Flaunt and Zane Lowe.

LANA LOVE — “EGO GO”

Upcoming alt-pop sensation Lana Love has shared her newest single and music video “Ego Go.” Backed by only a piano and strings, the new single highlights the intangible pursuit of perfection and the inevitable struggle of having to come to terms with your faults. Fans can check out the music video for “Ego Go” premiering exclusively on PopWrapped HERE. “Ego Go” is also available to stream HERE.

“It’s an internal dialogue between my Ego and my Self,” Lana expresses on the new single. “An honest, hard look in the mirror at the fears and flaws that make me human. I’m scared I’m not the woman I want to be, but I can’t let my ego go.”

“’Ego Go’” is the first track I played keys on myself. The song was written in a 10 min free-flow, sitting in a puddle of tears on my bedroom floor. There’s something unrefined about it, unlike the restraints of classical technique I grew up in. Simple and raw—I wanted the track to feel the way it did at conception: an earthquake of emotion.”

Lana Love’s self-titled EP is set to be released on October 1. Completely self-owned, the EP tells the story of Lana’s tremulous journey within the music industry. More information to come HERE.

Every once in a blue moon an artist emerges with an undeniable arsenal of talents and embarrassment of riches, and such is the case with contemporary pop artist Lana Love. The Atlanta-born juggernaut fully embodies the spirit of being multi-faceted as a singer, songwriter, classically trained pianist/musician, trained dancer, actor and burgeoning entrepreneur.

The genesis for Lana’s musical journey started in Naples, Florida as a precocious 4-year old who was obsessed with Andrew Lloyd Weber’s iconic “Phantom of The Opera” and started playing the song, “Music of the Night,” by ear on piano in her living room. From that auspicious beginning, Lana has been immersed in honing and expressing her artistry in every medium available. By age 7, she had written her first song. She later studied music at the University of Florida and the American Music Theater and Dramatic Academy in New York.

In her late teens, she was featured in several musical productions as a singer/actor/dancer produced by Disney and Nickelodeon that were presented internationally in over 20 countries throughout Europe. Back in the US she has amassed a number of television credits on programs that were broadcast by HBO, Warner Brothers, Discovery Channel, YouTube and Telemundo. She has also opened for mega rappers like Snoop Dogg and Wu Tang Clan, among other, dabbled in EDM and been a featured guest artist on RaF MC’s Latin dance track, “Baila.”

Currently, Lana is the epitome of a female entrepreneur in a male-dominated field. Between finally owning 100% of her masters and joining the ranks alongside the few women that have broken the digital currency barrier with an NFT venture on the horizon, Lana is a lyricist for the upcoming Netflix documentary “Malinche,” written by Nacho Cano and orchestrated by Hans Zimmer.

An entrepreneur and businesswoman at heart, Lana Love’s story continues to exponentially blossom. She is spreading the one message she holds most dearly…everything, absolutely everything is LOVE.

Anjulie – Big Bad World

Canadian pop musician Anjulie released the official music video for “Big Bad World” with Canadian director Dan Lemoyne. Dan created a world of stunning projection-based tableau for me to emote against; a personal existential crisis within a planetary existential crisis. Heavy social commentary hidden inside the levity of a whimsical melody on a bed of cinematic sound design. Watch and share on YouTube.

“Big Bad World” is a dark nursery rhyme, nodding to the fairytale concept of the wolf. The chorus is sung as a condescending rationalization to the worst kind of person who justifies their bad deeds by burrowing in the womb of ignorance. Stream on your preferred platform now.

Anjulie said about the song, “Navel-gazing narcissism is rewarded in this constantly connected, depersonalized, and performative world. It’s about turning a blind eye to the horrors of humanity like ecological collapse, terrorism, school shootings, and crippling economic inequality while being distracted by shiny new tech, social media and the incessant gamification of social status.”

About Anjulie

Anjulue Persaud, known professionally as Anjulie, is the youngest of four children and was born and raised in Oakville, Ontario. She became obsessed with music after watching Janet Jackson’s Velvet Rope Tour. Her first big break came in 2009 when she opened for Jesse McCartney. While she’s had plenty of success with songs such as “Boom,” “Love Songs” and “Rain,” she’s also found some major success in TV, and her songs have been featured in shows such as Melrose Place and The Vampire Diaries. Thus far, she’s only released one self-titled album, which came in 2009.

Peach Tree Rascals "Oh Honey (I Love You)" from Kristin Robinson at 10K Projects for use by 360 Magazine

PEACH TREE RASCALS — OH HONEY (I LOVE YOU)

Today, California misfit collective Peach Tree Rascals share a new music video for “Oh Honey (I Love You),” a sentimental track off of their debut EP, Camp Nowhere, released March 26 via Homemade Projects/10K Projects. Produced by James Bahmen and directed by creative house Kids Don’t Know, the new music video shares the enduring love story of an elderly couple in flashbacks to their younger years, when they first fell in love. Starring bandmate Joseph Barros as the main character, the new video is a testament of lasting enduring devotion, featuring cameos from each of the Rascals. Watch the music video for “Oh Honey (I Love You)” HERE.

The new music video arrives shortly after Peach Tree Rascals’ breakout hit “Mariposa” became RIAA-certified Gold, and after the group’s new cover of John Mayer’s “Stop This Train,” available now exclusively on Amazon Music. In the past year, the group has received praise from Billboard, Forbes, The Fader, VMAN, BuzzFeed, and more.

Peach Tree Rascals largely wrote and recorded their debut EP Camp Nowhere in seclusion, finding inspiration while camping. Centered on themes of recovery and healing which they attribute to their increased time outdoors during quarantine, the Rascals debut EP is a comforting and optimistic album for the times.

Camp Nowhere came from the idea that a lot of people have been using the isolation of quarantine and the state of the world to dig deeper into themselves and figure out what’s important to them,” rapper/singer Tarrek shares. “For some it’s discovering a new hobby, or that it’s time to move on to a new place. For PTR, it was taking a week in Yosemite to dive into our creativity. We’ve always done a combination of sounds that inspire us all. This feels like all of our inspirations mixed together.”

To date, Peach Tree Rascals has garnered 400M+ streams across platforms and count 6M+ Spotify monthly listeners. Their breakthrough hit “Mariposa” charted to #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart and has been co-signed by Lizzo and Harry Styles.

WHO ARE THE PEACH TREE RASCALS?

More of a brotherhood than a collective, The Rascals blend a seemingly effortless knack for melody with layers of rich harmony and R&B grooves. Recording together since their high school days, producer/mixer Dominic “Dom” Pizano, rappers-singers Issac Pech, Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq, Joseph Barros, and creative director Jorge Olazaba united with the intent of seeking musical growth and companionship. With most of the members being second-generation Americans (the sons of Palestinian, Filipino and Mexican immigrants), they quickly realized a deep, natural connection with one another, and grew into a single, harmonious unit. You can buy their merchandise HERE.

NOTHING,NOWHERE. SHARES NEW SONG: UPSIDE DOWN

Fueled By Ramen artist nothing,nowhere. has shared a brand-new single, upside down, which is featured on his widely anticipated new album TRAUMA FACTORY due out February 19th. Available now on all streaming platforms, “upside down” pulses with a duality of hypnotic rhythms as nothing,nowhere. traces the slow and painful dissolution of a relationship from his past.

nothing,nowhere. elaborated on the new track remarking, “We’ve all had our fair share of unhealthy relationships. ‘upside down’ is about a lost love and the inability to accept the new and painful circumstances.”

“upside down” arrives as nothing,nowhere’s recent single fake friend continues to climb Billboard’s “Alternative Airplay” chart, reaching Top 25 at the format this week. Also featured on TRAUMA FACTORY, “fake friend” is joined by a Mason Mercer directed official music video which spirals over nothing,nowhere.’s seamless alchemy of alternative, pop, rap, and punk.

Pre-orders for TRAUMA FACTORY are available at www.nothingnowhere.net featuring exclusive limited-edition vinyl and merch. Each pre-order will receive instant grat downloads of “upside down” and “fake friend” as well as previously released singles: lights (4444), pretend, DEATH, nightmare, and blood (Feat. KennyHoopla & JUDGE).

Over the course of 15 tracks, TRAUMA FACTORY cuts deep and finds nothing,nowhere. once again emerging from darkness, shedding external expectation, and moving forward into the glow of pure creation. Whether it be the anesthetized beats and intoxicating lull of “love or chemistry,” the cold piano-laden longing of “crave,” or the emotional immediacy of “upside down,” nothing,nowhere. paints from a wide palette of pain.

“TRAUMA FACTORY is an accumulation of songs written during a confusing time. it is about accepting the present and following your true north through the pain and suffering of human life,” nothing,nowhere. revealed He added, “I wanted to make an album that was truly genreless and inspire others to challenge themselves artistically. I believe the most inspiring art is unpredictable and unrestrictive. to me thatߣs what TRAUMA FACTORY is.”

Last year, The New York Times hailed “DEATH” as a “Scabrous, immensely satisfying emotional expurgation from Joe Mulherin that deploys early Beastie Boys drums and Rage Against the Machine bark-rapping in service of a rap-rock revival bathed in righteousness.”

Last year, he teamed up with Travis Barker for the collaborative EP, bloodlust. bloodlust was highlighted by lead single destruction, which debuted via The FADER with Kerrang! declaring “bloodlust feels like another world. From start to finish it envelops you in its hazy, muted soundscapes.” bloodlust followed a prolific string of singles from nothing,nowhere. –call back, dread, and ornament, and arrived just a year after the release of his acclaimed 2018 LP, ruiner. The sophomore LP features album standouts ruiner and rejecter, which Pigeons&Planes declared, “perfectly exemplify why nothing,nowhere.’s music is so exciting he’s crafted a world of sound that’s both fresh and recognizable.”

The FADER remarked, “The new record is a stimulating blend of singing, hip-hop, and live instrumentation, all fused together with emo and alternative stylings.” nothing,nowhere.’s 2017 debut album, reaper, was met with critical praise led by the singles hopes up (Ft. Dashboard Confessional) and skully.

The album made a massive impact upon its DCD2/Equal Vision release with The New York Times’ Jon Caramanica placing it at #1 on his list of 2017’s best. reaper “synthesizes the second-wave emo of the early to mid-2000s with the rattling hip-hop low end of the last few years,” he wrote. “(reaper) is one of the most promising pop albums of the year,” Rolling Stone declared, “reaper finds him tonally evoking the glory years of 2000s emo-punk without necessarily replicating it.”

nothing,nowhere. is the musical endeavor of Vermont songwriter, singer and guitarist Joe Mulherin. For Mulherin, nothing,nowhere. is about a connection. It’s one he finds with fans around the world, who gather to see him play on tour and to listen to his songs online. It’s that connection that urges the singer to place his fears aside and step onstage each night to share his art. He sees the potential to help, to make a change, however small it may be and that is why he brings his music out of the Vermont wildness.

RICKY HIL – “TRYIN”

Today, alternative singer/songwriter Ricky Hil releases his latest single and music video “Tryin,” out now via 10K Projects. Following up the success of his November single “Break My Heart,” “Tryin” gives fans a glimpse into Ricky’s next full length project, SSDD, out soon. “I strive to bring the gritty truth of my generation into my music and lyrics,” he says. The music video for “Tryin,” directed by Aidan Cullen, captures that feeling visually, as Ricky walks through the dark-lit streets of LA, singing “life is unfair to you / life is unfair to me.”

You can listen to “Tryin,” here and watch the new music video here.

Since his debut project The Lonely Limo—a fearlessly personal mixtape featuring guest spots from heavy-hitters like Lil Wayne—Ricky Hil has brought an unapologetic honesty to his music. Over the years, that approach has left a powerful impact on an entire wave of musicians in the underground scene, including a number of rappers/singers who’ve emerged as major cultural figures (Kid Cudi, XXXTentacion, The Weeknd, Juice WRLD, to name just a few). In his upcoming project SSDD, the consummate artist’s artist sheds even more light on his demons, and embraces a stronger sense of purpose than ever before.

“A lot of the time in my songs I’m saying shit I don’t really even want to say—but I do it anyway, because I know there are people out there that feel the same way I do,” says Ricky.

Born in Fairfield County, Connecticut but based in Los Angeles, Ricky first started experimenting with making music as a kid, armed with a turntable set-up and a stack of vinyl. “I fell in love with it, and I’d stay up all night every weekend—I didn’t care about anything else, I just wanted to create as much as possible.” Although South Philly rappers like Beanie Sigel influenced his early work, Ricky later discovered singer/songwriters like Bob Dylan and focused more heavily on sculpting potent melodies and sharpening his songcraft. Mostly raised on rock-and-roll, he later played in a punk band, infusing his songs with a kinetic energy that still permeates the music he makes today.

Ricky has recently refined his vision, and fully leaned into his love for darkly charged beats and slow yet dynamic tempos. “I went into all these new songs just wanting to be completely myself,” he says. As part of that creative revitalization—which includes recording up to five songs a night—he’s also begun drawing his own cover art, naming famed tattoo artists Jack Rudy and Mister Cartoon among the main inspirations on his artwork.

Make sure to follow Ricky Hil on Instagram, Soundcloud and Twitter.

EARTHGANG & Bon Iver Reimagine Brittany Howard

Today, ATO Records released a pair of remixes of songs from Brittany Howard’s acclaimed debut solo album, Jaime. Atlanta-based hip hop duo EARTHGANG reimagines Goat Head and Bon Iver brings fresh textures to Short and Sweet. The tracks are the first to be revealed from an upcoming collection of remixes from Jaime. Since its release last September, the album has won widespread praise from critics, earning placement on “best of” lists by The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork and many others, plus fans and fellow artists.

With the addition of two new verses, EARTHGANG take Goat Head, Howard’s highly personal account of growing up as a mixed-race child in a small Southern town at the turn of the 21st century and turn it into a bold anthem for 2020’s social justice movement. Listen HERE.

EARTHGANG explains, “We’ve been big fans of Brittany and Alabama Shakes, so this is a dream come true. Songs like these help us make sense of all the craziness in the world at times. Her song Goat Head, dealing with her black experience in America and The World, resonated the loudest at this time. Just thankful to be able to give the world our medicine and heal the people.”

Bon Iver adds rich layers to Short and Sweet a song celebrating a nascent romance that Howard originally recorded alone, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar and imbues it with a twinkling, ethereal vibe that both complements and contrasts its old-time warmth. Listen HERE.

“Brittany is a truly singular artist; so much power and musicality. This album speaks to so many people, including us,” says Justin Vernon, founder of the GRAMMY-winning band Bon Iver. “To have a chance to recreate Short and Sweet in our own image with long-time collaborators Jenn Wassner and CJ Camerieri, was both an honor and almost too much of a privilege.”

Howard will perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday, September 29. She will serve as guest editor of the Oxford Americans 22nd annual Southern Music issue, which will be available on newsstands November 25. Howard is nominated for three 2020 Americana Honors & Awards Album Of The Year, Artist Of The Year and Song Of The Year (Stay High). A four-time GRAMMY winner for her work with Alabama ShakesHoward spoke about women’s equality and finding her voice in the latest episode of Women Who Rock: Music & Mentorship, which aired recently on TODAY. View the interview HERE and watch her performance of Georgia HERE.

Putting Short and Sweet on the playlist she created for GQPhoebe Bridgers said, “[Howard’s] solo record is beyond what I thought was even possible.” Conor Oberst recently told The New York Times, “I’ve also been listening to a lot of the Brittany Howard Jaime record. I’ve always thought highly of Alabama Shakes, but it wasn’t until I heard this record that I realized she’s a national treasure.”

Jaime was awarded four stars by Rolling StoneMOJO and Q and named the Best Album of 2019 by NPR. The track History Repeats received two GRAMMY nominations. Stay High spent three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. It was Public Radio’s Most Popular Song of 2019 and named by Pitchfork and others as of the year’s best songs. Refinery29 said, “This feel-good gem will get you through any rough times and slap a smile back on your face.”

In this feature, The New Yorker praised Jaime as “deep, freaky, and heartfelt,” and said it shares “spiritual DNA with two of the boldest and most stylistically inscrutable releases of the past century: Black Messiah, the third album by the R. & B. singer D’Angelo, and Sly and the Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Goin’ On.” Hailing Jaime as “a candid autobiography in funk,” The New York Times said, “With a voice that can go to the roadhouse, the church or deeply private places, she exorcises troubles with the music’s sheer pleasure”
