UPROXX raved on the new smash single, stating, “The track is a bright record that takes a step into the pop lane as Coi speaks about the nature of anxiety and how it affects from day-to-day. Billboard even named the song amongst their 10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through The Week, asserting, “Leray opens up about her struggles with stress and depression, pivoting from a hummable refrain to unshrinking bars about her personal ordeals.”

YouTube even deemed Coi as their most recent Artist on the Rise, along with the likes of Rod Wave, Jack Harlow and 24kGoldn. Catch a look at YouTube’s official statement HERE.

Suki Waterhouse – Moves

Suki Waterhouse has released a brand-new single, “Moves” which comes with a visually stunning video directed by Cameron McCool. The track is the first to be released off her forthcoming full-length album, due out in 2022 via Sub Pop. “Moves” is Executive Produced by Grammy-Nominated Producer & Songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, War On Drugs, Snail Mail, Waxahatchee) “Moves” is accompanied by companion track “My Mind,” a song that shows off Suki’s beautiful, airy vocals.

Listen to “Moves” and “My Mind” HERE. Watch “Moves” HERE.

Suki Waterhouse catalogs the most intimate, formative, and significant moments of her life through songs. You might recognize her name or her work as a singer, songwriter and actress, but you’ll really get to know the multi-faceted artist through her music. Growing up in London, Suki gravitated towards music’s magnetic pull and always saw the medium as a way of expressing creativity and telling stories. Previous singles “Brutally”, “Good Looking” and “Valentine” drew comparisons to the Paisley Underground sound of Mazzy Star and to the 60s influenced girl group reimagining of bands like Stockholm’s The Concretes and Glasgow’s Camera Obscura.

Megan Jasper, CEO of Sub Pop said, “Suki’s songs are smart, radiant, and incredibly engaging, much like her personality. We knew the minute we heard them that they were important and needed to be out in the world. Sub Pop is over the moon to be working with her!”

“Moves” illuminates the nuances of her sound. With gentle guitar strumming throughout the verses and a rhythmic bass permeating the chorus, Waterhouse warns she might “put some goddamn moves on you” with beautiful, haunting vocals. “Moves” is a song that dreams about the impossibility of, one day, being struck by a person who changes the course of your life.

“Moves” is a song I first started writing one night on the couch, picking up the guitar and seeing what came out,” writes Suki. “It was a moment where I felt the urge to both sever a bond of connection with somebody and yet at the same time pursue and put my trust back in love.”

MASN RELEASES NEW TRACK “STRAWBERRY HURACAN”

NEW EP “THIS PLACE WOULDN’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU ” TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 29TH, 2021

Artist on the rise MASN releases his new track “Strawberry Huracan” via RCA Records.

MASN says, ““Strawberry Huracan” is the breath of fresh air on this EP. Continuously listening to sad songs would drown you in sadness, so you need the contrast to balance everything out. I wrote “Strawberry Huracan” because I wanted a good driving song and it reminds me exactly for what I’m grateful for. That contrast alone is so vital to this EP as a whole”.

Last year MASN released his debut EP “How To Kill A Rockstar  as well as “Mountains,” a collaboration with label mates Lost Kings. MASN’s debut EP received critical praise – the track “Hate Me!” was featured on Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week” and Ones To Watch “#NowWatching” playlist and “Fire” which PAPER called “compelling.” The EP also included previously released tracks “Psycho!,” “Psycho!” feat. Trippie Redd and “Val!um.”

Trippie Redd which marked MASN’s first release with RCA Records. German DJs/Producers Topic & B-Case also remixed “Psycho!”  MASN’s expansive creative palette distills into a dreamy melting pot of lo-fi beatcraft, indie experimentation, hip-hop fluidity, and lush pop.

On the heartsick single the 17-year-old artist shares an R&B approach to his music by tapping into his vocal abilities.

Lady London – Never

Drumming up critical acclaim as an illustrious artist in a few short years, with destiny for greatness, Lady London shares with the world her new single and accompanying cinematic visual “Never.” The Nigel Uno-produced track serves as a therapeutic release from the New York-born, New Jersey-raised rapper chronicling the vast amount of trials she’s endured that ultimately shapes her to be the resilient woman that she is today.

“Never” is now available to stream/ purchase /share on all streaming music service platforms now. The official music video premiered on YouTube last week.

London shared a special note to fans and followers last week as she unveiled details of today’s momentous release: “This record is my first child—the very first song I recorded the day I landed back in LA & discovered I had lost two years’ worth of my only material on my hard drive. Every song I recorded in my entire career was on that disk. I bled my soul on this record. I speak of my journey through this vicious industry. I speak on the horrors of social media notoriety and even my past relationship. God placed his hand on this record because, for the very first time, I made it for me.”

Earlier this year, Lady London released her heavy-hitting track “Money Over,” which takes on an infectious Barrington Levy sample and pays homage to her West Indian/ Caribbean roots. Rap icon Cardi B praised the track as she took to social media and stated London is “the most slept on.” “Money Over” is currently at 500,000 + views on YouTube. Watch HERE

A few short months ago, the world got a chance to meet the rising star on a national level for the BET Awards as she delivered an empowering message rooted around the Black Lives Matter movement made to inspire the world—and so it did. The Genius presented performance caught co-signs immediately after from Diddy, Revolt TV, and more as most became immediately captivated by her distinct and dynamic flow.

An Interview with Goon Des Garcons

By: Skyler Johnson

Goon Des Garcons is a Little Rock, Arkansas rapper known for his deeply original genre-bending style. He mixes several different genres, including hip hop and emo rock. He grew up in church, played the saxophone and began writing music in middle school. At 18, he left Arkansas and since then has lived in Baltimore, New York, New Zealand and now L.A. In his music, Goon gravitates toward spacey, deconstructed, melodic beats. Working closely with his longtime collaborator and fellow Arkansas native, Idle Kid, he explores a range that finds him riding beats with punctuated flow, clamoring through vocal distortion, and crooning against sparse, emo rock production.

Which artists inspires you the most? 

Ye, P, Cud, FKA TWIGS. I try to make music that can span genres like all of them. They can make sense of anything and everything musically, and still all very much feel like their own style and vibe. 

What led you to include the heavy industrial stylings your music is known for having? 

Really Idle and Yeezus. I was always on the punk high energy vibe. Then I met Idle doing these super industrial beats that sounded like they were from the future and immediately knew this was the sound I was always running towards. Minimal and futuristic. 

How would you best describe your music?

Hmm.. I dunno, that changes everyday really. I’ve honestly never had a proper answer for that but ima just say post-modern. That’s my shit right now haha.

What in real life inspires you the most?

Movies, Clothes, Art… shit, “outside” at this point. Last year was crazy what the f***.

Which artist would you like to collaborate with the most?

Ye, Pharrell, Cud, Twigs. My idols of course! I feel like we could make something crazy, but also just to learn from the greatest would be amazing.

One of your most recent singles is titled A24. Are you a major film buff?

Major haha. I went to vegas while LA was still on lockdown just to go to the movies.

Do you have any details about upcoming projects you’re able to share with us?

SHEESH!, should be out by the time this posts right? All the details anyone needs to know right now is all there 🙂

What’s it like releasing an album with a label as iconic as Def Jam?

Intense lol I love it. being in the same breath as so many of those legends is crazy for me. I’m just trying to get on that level. Inspiring.

half•alive – WHAT’S WRONG

SONG & VIDEO OUT NOW 

Long Beach based trio half•alive return to release their new single “What’s Wrong” along with a tuxedoed, dance-heavy new music video via RCA Records. Watch HERE. “What’s Wrong” was written by half•alive and Ojivolta and produced by Ojivolta (Halsey, Shawn Mendes, Jon Bellion). The music video was conceptualized and produced by lead singer Josh Taylor, directed by Brantley Gutierrez, and choreographed by and features frequent, much-beloved half•alive collaborators JA Collective.

Says Josh, “There is a really funny story with how the hook of the chorus “Time’s always right to fix What’s Wrong” came to be. It randomly enough was actually a misquote from a conversation between Olivia Wilde & one of our creative directors Jordan, from JA Collective, who also happens to be my roommate. Olivia & JA were working together on a project a few months back & at one point Jordan noted how absurdly difficult it is to find choreographers on IMDB, but also noted that was a pretty minor problem considering the myriad of problems 2020 had brought to light. Olivia replied “the time is always right to do what’s right,”  which Jordan misquoted to me later that evening, forming the line “Time’s always right to fix what’s wrong”.  That line felt like the open door to address the social climate we’ve all been surrounded by for nearly a year now & prompted the idea of transformation of one’s immediate & eventually global environment by looking inward first, to look in the mirror & realize that is where the change is going to begin.

Creating the music video took the transformative theme of the song a step further by exploring one small crummy apartment seen in two radically different ways. Naturally we uniformed ourselves in tuxedos to stress the polarity even more. Trying to execute a video shoot in covid is incredibly challenging, but we didn’t realize how much covid was subtly influencing the story of the music video until we started location scouting. We felt strongly that there was something really special about filming it in a confined space, especially with that being the environment so many people have found themselves stuck in during quarantine–but transforming it into more. 2020 was a life changing year for many, for us it was a big break, being home and off the road all year, we were thankful for a breath to think, reflect & process, as many have had this year. A lot of what we reflected on was how now more than ever, there is a desperate need for hope & love & honesty and change. So at this point we can only trust that we’ve made something honest & hope those who hear “What’s Wrong” will feel loved & begin to hope in something truly transformative.”

About half•alive

The music of half•alive breathes, evolves, grows, and changes alongside the lives of the Long Beach trio Josh Taylor [vocals], Brett Kramer [drums], and J Tyler Johnson [bass]. half•alive officially came to life on the 2017 3 EP, which sparked a palpable buzz on the strength of “The Fall” and “Aawake At Night”. Over the course of the next year, they crafted what became their massive breakout “still feel.” which has been RIAA certified Gold, rocketed into the Top 10 at Alt Radio and has over 276 million worldwide streams to date. The video organically surpassed the 10 million mark within two months as the song garnered acclaim from NPR’s coveted “All Songs Considered” and more. The trio sold out their formal debut headlining tour in 2019  which included 2 sold out shows at The Fonda Theatre in LA. The tour also included stops at major music festivals including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Bumbershoot. Later that year the band made their late night television debut with a very special performance of “still feel.” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Check out the incredible and unique performance HERE. They also performed “Runaway” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. In August 2019, they released their debut album Now, Not Yet which has amassed over 472 million worldwide audio streams to date. half•alive was named YouTube’s Artist on the Rise and their live Vevo DSCVR performances of “RUNAWAY” and “arrow” showcase their incredible creative artistry. Last year, half•alive released their EP “in Florescence,” an audio and visual project that included orchestral arrangements of 4 tracks off their critically acclaimed debut album Now, Not Yet, as well as videos for 3 of the 4 songs to accompany them.
