JORDY – IDK SH!T

JORDY RELEASES NEW SINGLE IDK SH!T AHEAD OF LOLLAPALOOZA DEBUT THIS WEEKEND

LISTEN HERE | WATCH THE COMPANION MUSIC VIDEO TO FIND OUT WHICH JORDY ARE YOU?

Rising pop artist JORDY has released his new single IDK SH!T, available now on all streaming platforms. Chronicling the challenges of young adulthood during his twenties, the offering is a bubbly, diaristic pop track showcasing JORDY‘s impressive falsetto and knack at crafting anthemic hooks. Produced by frequent collaborator Drew Polovick, the song arrives just in time for JORDY‘s hometown debut at Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago this weekend, where he will be playing two performances on Thursday, 7/28 (6:30 pm @ Bud Light Seltzer Stage) and Friday, 7/29 (12:45 pm @ T-Mobile Stage). The accompanying IDK SH!T music video is also out today. Directed by Queerty Award-winning filmmaker Assaad Yacoub, it features various JORDY characters on a dating show, prompting fans to ask, Which JORDY are you?

I remember being a kid and thinking about what it would be like to be an adult: The freedoms, the knowledge, and the experience. Everything about it sounded so cool, but here we are, three years away from turning 30 and I still feel like a child, JORDY explained about the song’s inspiration. I feel like life lately has been cycles of calling my parents begging for answers: How do taxes work? How do you jump start a car? Should I be further ahead in my career? How do I find love? The list goes on, but sometimes, they don’t even have the answers. I want to normalize this feeling of not having it together because truthfully, nobody fully does. It’s important to remember that in moments when you’re being hard on yourself, he added.

Mining inspiration from pop staples such as The Spice Girls, Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne, and contemporaries such as Troye Sivan and Lauv, JORDY‘s songs blend the glimmering, bouncy 90s pop sound with sincere, vulnerable, and conversational songwriting. He unveiled his debut album Mind Games in November 2021, along with a companion acoustic EP in February, and Pride anthem Dry Spell earlier this summer, which Teen Vogue called a bright new single made for the dance floor, while Billboard lauded it one of his best produced tracks to date.

JORDY‘s heart-on-his-sleeve approach to modern pop music has resonated with fans nationwide, resulting in 100M+ career streams, sold out shows across the U.S., and a devoted following on TikTok with his 2021 dance-pop hit Long Distance that went viral on the platform in 2021. JORDY delivered a stellar performance of the track during his national television debut on The TODAY Showand earlier this year, he nabbed a nomination at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in the Social Star category.

JORDY is in the studio working on his sophomore project, with more details to be revealed soon.

JEFF HAMILTON:
Jeff Hamilton began his career as a fashion designer in Paris France. When he arrived in the US he forced his way into the top fashion circles making a name for himself as the creative genius behind Guess? for Men. After leaving Guess? Jeff began designing leather jackets that were much more than articles of clothing. Simply stated: “they were pieces of art”. Soon, Jeff had athletes, entertainers and world leaders beating a path to his door for the pleasure of being draped in one of his remarkable designs. Before long Jeff expanded his idea into the world of sports culminating in the creation of a jacket line that became a must-have for athletes, celebrities and sports-fans alike.  Along the way people began to take notice of the aesthetic beauty of Jeff’s unique designs and workmanship with hand-cut leather appliqués, accented with finely tuned embroidery and occasionally fashioned with metal and or stone adornment. It was clear that these items were meant to be treasured forever, rather than worn till out-of-season.  Jeff ultimately took on a passion for designing specific pieces strictly as art. These earlier pieces generally acknowledged his love of sports icons such as Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan. Today, Jeff has expanded his collection to include tributes to the Legends of Rock including The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, to name a few. HERE

MÅNESKIN GETS LOUD

Following recent highly praised performances at Coachella and numerous leading European festivals, Måneskin returned to Italy Saturday night, July 9, for a landmark Sold-Out concert for over 70,000 fans at Rome’s historic Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus). This milestone moment has seen the talented young quartet of musicians that came together as teenagers rise from busking on the streets of Rome to filling Italy’s signature stadium concert venue utilized by The Rolling Stones, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen

It was a surprising, powerful two hours plus show with a playlist covering every significant step of their career, from the first songs that brought Måneskin to Italian popularity, such as CHOSEN and TORNA A CASA, to hits that opened the door to the rest of Europe, like ZITTI E BUONI, CORALINE – through high-charting global impacts such as 2, and their recently released new single SUPERMODEL – which has already surged up U.S alternative (#2), rock (Top-10) and pop radio playlists.

This summer, Måneskin will continue to appear at several of the world’s most prestigious Music Festivals: Reading & Leeds, Lollapalooza (in Paris and Chicago), Rock Werchter, and Rock in Rio in Brasil, and Summer Sonic in Japan.

Their first extensive global trek, the highly anticipated LOUD KIDS TOUR, will start in autumn, with over 60 shows produced by Vivo Concerti, with over 500.000 tickets sold to date. The U.S. tour leg, with the majority of performances having achieved near-instant sell-outs, with additional shows recently added or venues upgraded, will begin in late October.

Along with the upcoming release of the band’s debut album, comes the Shadowglow Tour. Beginning tomorrow, the tour will run through the rest of the year, moving from coast to coast.

Normani inside 360 MAGAZINE for her fair song

Normani – Fair

Multi-platinum selling, chart topping recording artist Normani returns with the highly anticipated new single, “Fair”. On the HARV-produced track, bass pulsates like a heartbeat between soft keys as her voice echoes with raw feeling. Volleying between high register harmonies and an emotionally charged refrain, she gets confessional on the chorus, “Is it fair that you moved on, ’cause I swear that I haven’t.” “Fair” was co-written by Normani, Abby Keen, Bernard “HARV” Harvey and Felisha King Harvey.

Speaking about the new song, Normani reveals, “This song really captures me in one of my most vulnerable moments. Sharing this record makes me uncomfortable because you have never really seen me in this light. Definitely aware that you might feel like you don’t know much about me but that’s only because it’s what makes me feel protected. I am really forcing myself to let go here. This is huge for me and hopefully this piece of art resonates. Love is beautiful yet so so terrifying. I adore you guys to the moon and back.”

“Fair” is out everywhere now. Listen HERE.

To celebrate the release of “Fair” Normani performed the track live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC. Watch the performance HERE.

“Fair” serves as the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed “Wild Side” feat. Cardi B which dominated the charts following its release, hitting the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Hip-Hop/R&B Radio Chart. To date, “Wild Side” has amassed an impressive 325+ million streams globally.

An iconic visual ode to the late 90s-early 2000s, the video has received more than 100 million views to date, and showcases Normani‘s signature, sleek dance moves and her versatility with fashion, reminding all that she remains at the top of her game. Watch her breathtaking live performance at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York City HERE.

Bob Moses Announces New Album

GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Bob Moses have announced the upcoming release of their highly anticipated third album, The Silence in Between. Due out March 4, The Silence in Between will mark the Los Angeles-based band’s first release since signing to Astralwerks in a unique global partnership with Domino Recording Co. In celebration of the album announcement, Bob Moses have also shared their exhilarating new single “Love Brand New.

One of the most anthemic moments on The Silence in Between, “Love Brand New” finds Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance tapping into their deep-rooted love for ’90s alt-rock and left-of-center dance music. Written with Michel Zitron and John Martin (a Swedish production duo known for their work with the likes of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia), the track encompasses a glorious collision of moody guitar tones, mercurial textures, and wildly propulsive beats as Bob Moses channel the dizzying euphoria of new romance. Billboard declares, “Love Brand New” is a dark, brooding slow build that pulsates with moody lust, growls power riffs and shows off a heavier sound for the duo.”

“‘Love Brand New’ is about being newly in love and trying not to lose yourself as you navigate the world feeling as though you’re seeing everything for the first time, as if it’s brand new,” Bob Moses reveal. “It was written with our friends Michel Zitron and John Martin and started in L.A. just before Coachella in 2019. We knew there was something there, but touring intervened. We finally got back to it in 2020, and it became one of the first finished for our new album. We shot the video in a freezing warehouse in Montreal this past December — we look warm though.”

Directed by photographer/director Adrian Villagomez and Derek Branscombe, the video for “Love Brand New” unfolds as Bob Moses deliver a frenetic performance within that warehouse, fully embodying the track’s explosive vitality. Meanwhile, the intimately shot visual cycles through a series of tender vignettes featuring an eclectic cast of characters from all walks of life. The result is a gorgeously cinematic piece, at turns electrifying and profoundly moving.

Also featuring their recent single “Time And Time Again (a November release accompanied by a spellbinding video), The Silence in Between follows Bob Moses’ JUNO Award-nominated 2020 project Desire and marks their first full-length since Battle Lines (a 2018 effort featuring the hit single “Back Down”). The duo’s past efforts also include their 2015 debut album Days Gone By, featuring such standouts as “Tearing Me Up” — a top 15 US Alternative radio hit nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards, with a remix from RAC winning in the category of Best Remix Recording (Non-Classical).

ABOUT BOB MOSES

Since forming in New York City in 2012, Bob Moses have earned massive acclaim for their transcendent blend of house music and emotionally charged pop. Made up of Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, the Los Angeles-based duo delivered their debut album Days Gone By in 2015 and immediately drew praise from tastemaking outlets like Mixmag (who stated that “[i]t’s hard to think of anyone who walks the line between electro-pop and deep dancefloor grooves quite as coolly as Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance”). Days Gone By featured such standouts as “Tearing Me Up”: an intensely poignant track nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards, with a remix from RAC winning in the category of Best Remix Recording (Non-Classical). In 2018, Bob Moses returned with Battle Lines, which featured the hit single “Back Down” and led to a performance on “Ellen.” Hailed by The Line of Best Fit as “versatile, dynamic party music, made by masters of their craft,” Battle Lines also landed on Billboard’s Best Electronic Albums of 2018 list. The duo’s most recent triumphs include 2019’s Unplugged EP, Falling into Focus – Live 2020 (a concert film documenting an hour-long set performed at an abandoned radio tower in Topanga, California), and Desire (a JUNO Award-nominated 2020 project that PopMatters lauded as “exceptional, its classic trance rhythms crafted with a sense of multidimensionality”). A longtime festival favorite, Bob Moses have also repeatedly claimed the Best Live Act title from Resident Advisor, appearing at leading festivals like Coachella, TomorrowWorld, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, and Bonnaroo. Newly signed to Astralwerks in partnership with Domino Recordings, the duo will release their highly anticipated third album The Silence in Between on March 4
