Flora Cash shares new single – Chronically Beautiful

RIAA platinum-certified indie-pop duo Flora Cash has today unveiled a tender and reflective new single. “Chronically Beautiful” is available now via the Swedish/American band’s own Flower Money Records at all DSPs and streaming services.

“’Chronically Beautiful’ was sparked when we were having a conversation about what it means to be beautiful,” says Flora Cash, “especially when looked at through the lens of real love. It’s not an acute, momentary perception; it’s the feeling that the person you love; the person that you waited your whole life for has a beauty that transcends any given moment and isn’t dependent on what they happen to be wearing or how their face looks that day or week or month; they’re chronically beautiful.”

Listen to “Chronically Beautiful”

“Chronically Beautiful” marks the latest new music from Flora Cash following the arrival earlier this year of the poignant new single, “Soul Mate,” available now for streaming and download. Now boasting more than 2.5M worldwide streams thus far, the track is joined by an equally powerful official music video streaming now here.

Listen To “Soul Mate”

Watch “Soul Mate”

Flora Cash was born in 2012 when Minneapolis-native Cole Randall uploaded his music to Soundcloud and caught the attention of Sweden-based Shpresa Lleshaj. The pair soon began playing music together, forming a relationship that would eventually blossom into marriage. A series of independent releases were followed by an acclaimed seven-song mini-LP, Can Summer Love Last Forever?, in March 2016. Flora Cash’s full-length debut album, Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine), arrived the following year, highlighted by the global smash single, “You’re Somebody Else.” First released in 2017, the RIAA platinum-certified single has proven a true viral phenomenon, currently boasting over 250M worldwide streams while ranking as one of Shazam’s Most Shazamed Alternative Songs in both 2019 and 2020. Hailed by Forbes as “arguably the most intriguing song on the radio this past year,” “You’re Somebody Else” was equally popular at multi-format outlets nationwide, reaching #1 at Alternative and Triple-A while also ascending to the top 5 on Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” chart. The track – which has also inspired countless TikTok videos in recent months – is joined by an official lyric video, now with over 133M views via YouTube alone.

As creative and engaging onstage as they are in the studio, Flora Cash lit up stages around the world with a wide range of international live dates, including tours alongside Sir Sly, Joywave, lovelytheband, Judah & the Lion, and AJR as well as festival appearances at Life is Beautiful, Bumbershoot, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Hangout Music Fest, Firefly Music Festival, and the KROQ Weenie Roast & Luau, to name but a few. The duo is currently slated to perform at Hamburg, Germany’s MS Dockville 2021, set for Friday, August 13th; additional dates will be announced soon. For updates, please visit here.

In 2020, Flora Cash released their much-anticipated sophomore album, Baby, It’s Okay, highlighted by the hit singles, “Missing Home” and “They Own This Town” and praised by Atwood Magazine for its “stunning display of stripped back, emotive songwriting, minimal introductions and impressive vocal lines are laced over lush, electro-pop instrumentals as delicate as they are organic, all delving into relational themes…a stunning second album.”

“Well-thought-out, congruent, and brilliantly detailed, Flora Cash explores themes such as post-breakup blues and coming to terms with oneself, all coated in melancholic and bittersweet vibes.” – ATWOOD MAGAZINE

“A sound that’s equal parts earthy and ethereal” – SUBSTREAM

“Bitingly bittersweet (Flora Cash’s) crystalline guitar and spine-tingling melodies give voice to that feeling of emptiness that’s recently become all-too-familiar.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Alongside artists like Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, and Francis and the Lights, Flora Cash is on the front lines of modern musicians redefining alt-pop by injecting their music with heartfelt conviction.” – EARMILK

AMERICAN AUTHORS – NICE AND EASY

AMERICAN AUTHORS PERFORM NEW SINGLE “NICE AND EASY” ON KELLY AND RYAN

For Kelly and Ryan‘s 4th of July weekend celebration, pop rock trio American Authors performed their brand new single Nice and Easy and were interviewed about what they’ve been up to since the pandemic stopped them from touring. The band divulged that there’s more new music and a full album on the way!

For the release of Nice and Easy, American Authors joined forces with Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray to create the perfect summer BBQ soundtrack song. The laidback anthem takes a break from the chaos of the last year and reminds listeners to cut themselves some slack. “Its been a really hard year and Nice And Easy is a reminder to slow it down and get back to the basics of living life to your full potential,” says lead vocalist/guitarist Zac Barnett.

The new song is also a toast to new beginnings for the band, who are releasing the single independently and have begun producing their music on their own from top-to-bottom. After amassing 1 billion-plus streams, picking up multi-platinum and gold plaques, and selling out shows everywhere, the guys grabbed the reins and assumed dominion over their future in 2021. Composed of Zac, Dave Rublin (bass, keys), and Matt Sanchez (drums), American Authors are fully embracing their newfound independence and heading back to their roots. Zac shares, “Nice And Easy is the most ‘American Authors’ song weve released in a long time. Not only did we write and produce the song completely ourselves, but we really wanted to make something fun while keeping our signature message of hope.”

Since forming at Berklee College of Music in Boston during 2006, American Authors have become embedded in both popular music and culture. After grinding it out independently, they dropped their debut album, Oh, What A Life, in 2014 on Island Records. It eventually went gold and yielded the triple-platinum anthem Best Day of My Life. It not only soared to #11 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it also became ubiquitous across film, television, video games, and sports. To date, they’ve landed over 600 syncs and counting. 2016’s What We Live For housed the Top 20 hit Go Big or Go Home.  In 2019, their third full-length, Seasons, picked up widespread acclaim. Earmilk raved, “Each track on the album is an energetic anthem of raw raspy rock bursting with heart and soul,” and Unclear Magazine attested,  This album lights the fire for a much more relatable listen that forces audiences to think about their own experiences in a new way.

In addition to headlining, they hit the road alongside the likes of Andy Grammer, OAR, OneRepublic, The Revivalists, and The Fray and graced the bills of festivals such as LollapaloozaFirefly Music FestivalBottleRock Napa ValleyReading & Leeds Festivals, and Warped Tour. 2020 marked various changes. Finishing up their tenure in the major label system, the band went independent. They also reconfigured as a trio and unlocked a different level of inspiration.

Theres a whole new energy we havent really felt in a long time,” Zac admits. “Weve not only written some of the best songs weve ever written, but we also feel like the music is the truest manifestation of the sound of American Authors. Whether its for the group or on solo projects, weve been working together on everything. It brings us back to what the band is supposed to be, which is a group of friends having fun.”

That spirit carries over to the single Nice & Easy. Entirely crafted by the band themselves, it kicks off their fresh chapter with boisterous horn-powered production, handclaps, and sunny inspiring lyrics. Zac trades verses with McGrath before the chantable chorus rings out with the ultimate upbeat mantra, “I’m gonna kick back, just relax, enjoy the summer breeze, and slow it down just for now, take it nice and easy.

Since we made it 100% ourselves, its completely American Authors”, grins Zac. “Last year was tough, so the general vibe is weve got to get back to basics, go one step at a time, not stress too much when were moving forward, take things as they come, and ease back into life. Were super big fans of Mark and grew up listening to him. We got to work on the song face-to-face, and hes literally the nicest and most energetic person.

In the end, American Authors are doing exactly what they were always meant to do.

“When you listen to us, the goal is for you to leave feeling hopeful and in a better mood, Zac insists. The main thing we want is for you to go out and have fun. After the past year, I can see how much this band represents friendship, compassion, and good vibes all around. It’s a message of hope, man.”

Duke Dumont × Channel Tres Release Alter Ego

Internationally renowned DJ and producer Duke Dumont has dropped the official video for his latest single, Alter Ego, featuring Channel Tres, out via Astralwerks. 

Directed by US director George Nienhuis, who has done work for 2 Chainz and Major Lazer, Alter Ego is taken from Duke Dumont’s latest installment of his ‘For Club Play Only’ series. Featuring Channel Tres in a trippy, psychedelic environment, the video is a reimagining of club surroundings and lends itself perfectly to the cinematic soundscape and deep dance vibe of the track.

With a back-catalog that includes international chart no. 1 hits, multi-Grammy nominations, and underground house music productions, Duke Dumont’s ability to defy genres is a testament to his artistry. Over the past decade, he has been honing his skills and immersing himself in the infinite world of possibility that can be accessed through key, rhythm, tone, melody, and harmony. Duke Dumont has amassed over 3 billion streams across his portfolio of previous anthems, scoring several platinum-selling worldwide #1 singles in the process. His songs I Got You and Need You (100%) were nominated for “Best Dance Recording” at the Grammy Awards. They also consistently topped the UK Singles Chart, along with Ocean Drive and Won’t Look Back.

The official video of Alter Ego is an invigorating vision for the future of club culture and is set to be this summer’s hottest track. Duke Dumont continues to earn his calling card as the “King of Club House” with entrancing visuals, head-bopping rhythms, and contagious beats.

Still Woozy × That’s Life

Still Woozy premieres his new single and official video for That’s Life from his debut album, If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is.

One of the most inventive and multifaceted new voices in the alt-pop world, Still Woozy, returns today with his sweetly lovesick new track That’s Life, released via Still Woozy Productions/Interscope Records. It’s the fourth single from Still Woozy’s forthcoming full-length debut, If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is. The album is due out on August 13.

Wrapped in a glistening exterior, That’s Life captures the sensation of riding out life’s highs and lows. In creating the track, the Portland-based singer/songwriter/producer otherwise known as Sven Gamsky merged lush beats, big bass grooves, and heart-on-sleeve lyrics delivered in his tender vocals. The result is a bittersweet song revealing Still Woozy’s gift for spinning painful feelings into bright and sunny melody.

“This song is my attempt to make peace with life’s inconsistencies,” says Still Woozy.

Along with “That’s Life,” If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is will feature several previously released singles, including Kenny (hailed by Wonderland Magazine as “an intimate and imbued soundscape, filled with alt-pop sensibilities and chilled out vocals”), Rocky (a track that inspired This Song Is Sick to proclaim: “When it comes to the momentous lo-fi/indie pop boom that’s happening right now, Still Woozy is at the head of the pack”), and Window (praised by Earmilk as a “promising first step of the new decade that expands on his groovy DIY aesthetic while maintaining a touching intimacy”).

Gamsky grew up in the Bay Area and began playing guitar as a little kid. By middle school, he’d started writing his own songs, and later honed his guitar skills by playing in a math-rock band. After further developing his musicality by studying classical guitar and electronic music at UC Santa Cruz, he released his debut EP Lately in 2019. Featuring collaborations with Omar Apollo, the self-recorded five-song project includes singles like “Habit” (a track that’s now amassed over 113 million streams on Spotify). Over the years, Still Woozy has taken the stage at major festivals like Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, in addition to completing a sold-out North American headlining tour.

Tracklist for If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is by Still Woozy:

1) Woof  

2) Rocky 

3) That’s Life 

4) Woopie 

5) Get By

NoMBe x This Is Not A Love Song

Singer, songwriter, and producer NoMBe has released the music video for “This Is Not A Love Song” off his sophomore album, CHROMATOPIA, out now via TH3RD BRAIN Records. A retrospective breakup song imagining the end of a relationship and the inability to cope, “This Is Not A Love Song” paints an exaggerated picture of NoMBe drowning in sorrow, juxtaposed by dreamy imagery of him in the afterlife. PRESS HERE to watch the video Directed By B and PRESS HERE to check out the premiere on Complex who call the track a “dreamy pop banger.”

“I love how this music video turned out for its simplicity,” shares NoMBe. “We shot in Hawaii during a really rainy period and luckily found a nice day to knock this one out. Originally we were trying to build a giant mirror out of those smaller pieces seen in the clip, but it was such an understanding we decided to make it more about the different angles and locations.”

Referred to as One To Watch by ET Canada and “one of pop’s most intriguing new faces” by Paper Magazine, NoMBe’s recently released 14-track album highlights the complexities of relationships through clever lyricism, infectious melodies, and sultry vocals – PRESS HERE to listen. Offering new perspectives as he lyrically details the internal dialogue of love using elements of pop, electronic, soul, and rock  NoMBe explores its many different hues, providing a first-hand look into his kaleidoscopic world. CHROMATOPIA features the singles “Water Into Wine,” intoxicating “Boy’s Don’t Cry,” breezy dance track “Paint California,” vulnerable ballad “Weirdo,” indie-pop bop “Heels,” and the groovy “Prototype,” which have collectively garnered over 14 million streams and received support from Rolling Stone Australia, Vulture, Hollywood Life, Wonderland, Ones To Watch, and Flood Magazine among others.

Known for having a modern take on alternative music that is entirely his own, Noah McBeth- under the moniker NoMBe- initially garnered buzz in 2015 with his viral single, “California Girls,” paving the way for his 2018 critically acclaimed debut album They Might’ve Even Loved Me which racked up nearly 180 million Spotify streams and garnered praise from the likes of NPR, Billboard, Clash, WWD, Flaunt Magazine, and Ones To Watch. The vibrant concept album is a tribute to the women in NoMBe’s life who have shaped and impacted who he is today. They Mightve Even Loved Me single “Can’t Catch Me” (ft. New Mystics) was personally chosen by Pharrell Williams as the official theme song to his HBO documentary series OUTPOST, while the track “Drama” (ft. Big Data) was featured in EA Sports’ FIFA World Cup 2019 soundtrack.

Over the last decade, NoMBe uprooted his life traveling around the country as he continued to broaden his musical knowledge and career before relocating to Hawaii.

NoMBe has garnered over 355 million global streams with placements in a variety of television shows including Shameless, Ozark, The Resident, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, Ballers, and more.

Young Bombs & Darius Rucker – Wrong Side of Love

YOUNG BOMBS TEAM WITH SUPERSTAR DARIUS RUCKER ON COUNTRY-TINGED NEW SINGLE WRONG SIDE OF LOVE FROM DEBUT EP

The Young Bombs Show EP collects five recent heaters and the new Rucker-blessed single, listen HERE

Today, Young Bombs return with a wistful, country-tinged single featuring three-time GRAMMY Award winner Darius Rucker called Wrong Side of Love. Built around Rucker’s honeyed croon, the story of lost love is the final single from the duo’s debut EP, The Young Bombs Show, also out now on Astralwerks. Listen to the song HEREand the EP HERE. The set gathers a string of singles that have established the duo as among the dance-pop world’s most vibrant and versatile producers, including the openhearted Better Day with Aloe Blacc and the swooning, optimistic Starry Eyes.

Wrong Side of Love shows off Young Bombs at their most emotional, lending a textured arrangement to Rucker’s poignant pining for a lover who’s fallen right back in somebody else’s arms. The song starts with roiling pianos and other homey instrumentation that might feel familiar to fans of Rucker’s country singles, but from there the song soars. Rucker moves beyond his pain into anthemic whoa-ohs as the track ascends into a synthy daydream.

It’s a different look for the duo, but Wrong Side of Love is a brilliant capstone to the run of singles that make up The Young Bombs Show. Young Bombs first came to widespread acclaim as esteemed remixers, sharing upwards of 50 beloved reworks of tracks for artists like Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, and Billie Eilish, among others. Since 2019, they’ve applied the same lively production to their own original tracks, which has resulted in the colorful singles on their new EP, spanning from heavenly bangers like Starry Eyes to more sensitive, stirring tracks like the Robinson-featuring High Road.

So far, the tracks on The Young Bombs Show have amassed over 65 million streams. As these songs have traveled, so has the duo. In recent years, they’ve played Lollapalooza, Ultra, Firefly Music Festival, and the Billboard Hot 100 Festival. They’ve also shared the stage with dance music luminaries like the Chainsmokers, Alesso, Galantis, and Diplo.

In just a couple of weeks, Young Bombswill be back with a video for Wrong Side of Love, a sign that even though The Young Bombs Show is a culmination of years of hard work, they won’t be stopping anytime soon.

About Young Bombs:

In 2019, Young Bombs make the bold leap from sought-after remixers to artists. That leap remains driven by a personal and creative chemistry forged way back in the Vancouver high school where they became best friends. With nearly 100 million streams in four years, the duo of Martin and Tristan cooked up 53 remixes by 2018. Along the way, they lent their talents to everyone from Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga to Billie Eilish, Alessia Cara, Post Malone, Khalid, and Bazzi. In addition, they attracted the support of Kygo and Don Diablo. Simultaneously, they graced the stages of blockbuster festivals such as Lollapalooza, Ultra, Firefly Music Festival, and the Billboard Hot 100 Festival. Not to mention, Young Bombs supported The Chainsmokers, Galantis, Diplo, and Alesso on tour around the globe and launched a coveted residency at Drai’s Beachclub in Vancouver. The upbeat and undeniable anthem Starry Eyes, their debut Astralwerks single, introduced a musicianship-centric style reliant on real instrumentation and genre-less creativity, shining a bright light on the future.
