KITO – BLOSSOM

KITO’S NEW EP, BLOSSOM, SET FOR RELEASE ON NOVEMBER 5 VIA ASTRALWERKS 

Featuring BROODS, Terror Jr, ZHU, Jeremih, Bea Miller, VanJess & Channel Tres

On the heels of her first RIAA Gold certification as a listed artist, Astralwerks artist Kito announces the November 5 release of her new EP, Blossom, and unveils the leadoff track from the seven-song set, Skin & Bones ft. Winona Oak. Lush and luminous, “Skin & Bones” is an infectious, deeply romantic slice of dance-pop. Kito wrote the song with Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Alessia Cara, Maren Morris).

Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden, Winona Oak first came to attention as a writer and featured artist on What So Not’s “Beautiful” and The Chainsmokers’ Gold-certified “Hope.” Her own debut single, “He Don’t Love Me,” was a runaway success, amassing 50 million streams across all platforms to date. Following her recent single “Old Insecurities” and her latest EP SHEwhich features the self-empowerment anthem “With Myself” and the stunning ballad “Piano in the Sky,” Winona Oak is currently at work on her debut album to be released next year.

Bitter, Kito’s first collaboration with FLETCHER, has been certified Gold by the RIAA and has amassed over 88 million combined global streams. She produced and co-wrote FLETCHER’s new single, girls girls girls, a bold reimagining of Katy Perry’s groundbreaking hit “I Kissed a Girl,” and earned acclaim for her remix of MARINA’s “Venus Fly Trap.”

Kito’s recent hits – “Follow” with ZHU and Jeremih, “Recap” with VanJess and Channel Tres, and “Steal My Clothes” ft. Bea Miller – shed light on the Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer’s approach to futurist pop. All three tracks are included on Blossom, as well as new collaborations with BROODS “Locked On You” and Terror Jr “Tongue Tied.” See below for track listing.

Fans who pre-order the EP will instantly receive “Skin & Bones,” “Steal My Clothes,” “Recap” and “Follow.” Named as the “ultimate summer club record” by Dancing Astronaut, “Follow” has amassed more than 10 million combined global streams. Billboard hailed “Recap” as “deliciously decadent and refreshing.” Praising “Steal My Clothes,” The Honey Pop said, “From the lyrics, to what a feel-good track it is, everything is A+.”

Oh Wonder Surprise Album and Video Release

Oh Wonder, the English alt-pop duo, has today released their beautiful, surprise new album, 22 Break, alongside a stunning short film accompanying the record in full. The album features their newest single, “Rollercoaster Baby,” released yesterday.

The band has also confirmed a now sold-out, global, online broadcast of their recent London show at The Albany, taking place on their YouTube on October 14th at 1pm EST. A 52-date world tour for 2022 is on sale now, following an eventful period for the unique London duo, who just scored back-to-back top 10s with 2020’s No One Else Can Wear Your Crown album, on top of 2.7 billion streams and 1.7 million adjusted album sales.

22 Break is the soundtrack to a band, and couple, almost broken – but ultimately made – by the pandemic. It’s a personal, powerfully honest account of those universal breakup themes like loneliness, inadequacy, resentment, and fears for the future, as heightened by making music from your shed in lockdown. In the pandemic’s early phases, Anthony and Josephine worked hard to fill the void created by 2020. Anthony decided to open a coffee shop in Peckham called Nola, which soon saw round-the-block queues and put many of their touring crew back in work. As they started working on new music, however, all the unspoken tensions between a pair who’d never really known a relationship outside of the band tumbled out. Ultimately, though, the album that almost ended Oh Wonder proved to be the making of them: 22 Break is a cathartic, quietly hopeful project, the light at the end of the tunnel that was Oh Wonder’s quite particular pandemic.

Not many bands can make a break-up album that culminates in them tying the knot – but then again, Oh Wonder have never been like other bands. Coming out of 22 Break and all the soul-searching that it forced them to do, Josephine and Anthony got married in August this year. Whilst their relationship now has its own space to exist outside of Nola and Oh Wonder, the duo’s crossroads period has accidentally resulted in their most profound work to date. Opening up to their fans and each other, the ‘Make or Break?’ poised by 22 Break is not so much a question as an active choice – to be as honest as possible, to move forward, and to begin a brand new chapter in the story of Oh Wonder.

Ashley Kutcher by Lindsey Byrnes for use by 360 Magazine

Ashley Kutcher – Fake Bitches

Rising pop singer/songwriter Ashley Kutcher unleashes her explosive new single Fake Bitches with accompanying music video out today on Interscope Records. The 22-year-old artist holds nothing back on the track, using her soaring vocal melodies to tear into fakes, flakes, and haters.

The idea for this song came about after talking about my transition from nursing to signing a record deal” says Ashley on the creation of ‘Fake Bitches.’ “While it’s an exciting stage of my life, I have also received a lot of unwanted “feedback” from people around me. This made me realize that as I’ve gotten older, I really only have a couple of real friends that truly have my back. I wanted to make a fun song that people can relate to when it comes to knowing who the real people in your life are, and of course, knowing who’s definitely not.”

The scathing, yet sincere track starts on the defensive. “I know I got a couple things to prove,” she admits in a bold, breathy croon. A moody guitar builds into a fist-pumping chorus as Kutcher flexes her vocals and shows her teeth. “One more basic conversation. Fuck no baby, I can’t take it,” she sings. With production by Los Angeles duo Afterhrs (who’ve co-written and co-produced tracks for artists including Louis Tomlinson, Maroon 5, and One Direction), “Fake Bitches” is a fun, feisty spin on Kutcher’s poignant, confessional songwriting.

“Fake Bitches” arrives amid a productive streak for Kutcher. She recently shared the sentimental single “Favorite What If” and the softly cinematic “If I Could,” the latter of which has gathered nearly 2 million Spotify streams since its April release. This recent run follows Kutcher’s breakout debut song, “Love You From A Distance,” which has amassed over 36M combined streams across Spotify and Apple Music, and earned placement on highly coveted playlists including Pop Rising, Fresh & Chill, Alone Again, and more.

With nearly 36K TikTok creates under her belt and radio placement from BBC Radio 1’s “Best New Pop” and Sirius XM’s “The Pulse,” the Baltimore native has started to embrace her place as one of pop music’s most affecting newcomers. Tracks like “Fake Bitches” show her songwriting prowess and range, something she’ll only continue to develop as she works on her debut EP, which is due to be released later this year on Darkroom / Interscope.

About Ashley Kutcher

Baltimore, MD, singer, songwriter, and artist Ashley Kutcher distinguishes herself as the kind of raw talent equally at home on the stage of a neighborhood watering hole or live on social media. Post-high school, she pursued a nursing degree at Towson University. While at Towson, a local bar came across a video of her singing online and invited her to perform on their stage. This opportunity opened the floodgates as Ashley quit her waitressing job shortly after and logged regular marathon sets, often playing four hours per night. During her senior year, she uploaded a demo of her original composition “Lust” to TikTok. The video instantly gained traction and garnered thousands of views in just 48 hours. To sustain this momentum, she released a follow-up demo called “Hands To Myself” to streaming platforms and the song quickly surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify. While her nascent fan base continued to grow, Ashley came across a tweet from blackbear that read “hit me up if you don’t like me. As her creative neurons began to fire, she used the tweet as inspiration and responded with her own song similarly named “HMU if U Don’t Like Me,” which went on to quickly rack up another million streams.  At this point, she realized the power of transforming a post into a song and did the same thing with “Love You From a Distance,” setting TikTok on fire with just a D.I.Y. performance clip from her bathroom. Produced by Eric Taft, the song quickly eclipsed 9.5 million Spotify streams as she signed to Darkroom/Interscope Records (now at over 36M combined). Amassing 20 million streams independently and 20 million TikTok views, Ashley’s heartfelt honesty captivates on a series of singles for Darkroom/Interscope and her forthcoming 2021 debut EP.

Talia Goddess – Poster Girl

As a pioneer of Brooklyn youth culture and a multifaceted creative, Tayahna Walcott, professionally known as Talia Goddess, releases her newest self-produced single Poster Girl on all streaming platforms off her forthcoming, debut EP.

Talia Goddess is a nineteen-year-old multi-hyphenate creative: singer-songwriter, rapper, producer, DJ, model, and community leader. Poster Girl is the third single off an EP of the same name to be released in Fall 2021. This track, like the EP, serves as a time-capsule of her teenage/high school years and experiences with love, identity, sexuality, loss, and growth. It is a reflective body of work on where she was mentally, emotionally, and spiritually the songs’ creation span from 2018 to 2020, and it’s also a reflection of her growth as an artist and my journey of finding her sound and avenue. Of the track, she says:

“Poster Girl has been long in the making, written and produced by me, and explores a theme of coming into an identity as a public figure or “Poster Girl” whose exterior is adored and idolized by many but in reality, is only the surface level to who I am.”

Talia Goddess merges her many talents as a self-taught singer-songwriter, rapper, music, producer, DJ, model, creative entrepreneur, and community leader to galvanize the next generation of creatives and push culture forward. Co-signed by the likes of A$AP Ferg, at the forefront of global campaigns with Converse, Tommy Hilfiger, MCM and editorials with Vogue, Refinery29, i-D, the queer vocalist-rapper hybrid seeks to leave her mark in a tangible form, impacting people through the words and rhythms that ultimately mirror how they feel inside, but can’t find the words to adequately express.

Determined to not be confined by the bounds of societal pressures, industry standards, and social conditioning, Talia has cultivated her own identity and seeks to bring various forms of art and expression under one umbrella in an unconventional way. An alchemist of words, an astute leader and cultural innovator, Talia Goddess is determined to help foster a safe and inclusive space for queer, black people such as herself and redefine and challenge the norms and expectations placed upon youth.

ZILLAKAMI – FROSTY

ZillaKami of City Morgue reveals a haunting and melodic new single and music video “FROSTY” via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records

On the track, ZillaKami’s chilling harmonies puncture an airy clean guitar riff as he declares, “Hello depression, I hear your message.” The accompanying video translates this anxiety and darkness on-screen. Rolling through a slasher flick-style suburb, sadness manifests as a dark figure pushing ZillaKami in a shopping cart as he watches his girl from outside of her bedroom window. Hand covered in blood; he ultimately emerges from this nightmare stronger.

His most recent solo single “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] has already generated north of 6 million streams and 1.9 million YouTube views on the static audio. Right out of the gate, it garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami’s dark sound and Uzi Vert’s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.

Prior, “CHAINS” posted up 2.6 million Spotify streams and 2.9 million views on the explosive music video. HotNewHipHop fittingly described it as “a hard-hitting, head-banging anthem.”

ZillaKami might be rap and rock’s worst nightmare come true in the best way. He defiantly devours guitar-backed beats without one fuck given. As one-half of City Morgue with partner-in-grime SosMula, he has toppled charts, sold out shows, and scared the shit out of anybody with a conscience. In 2019, the group’s second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, held multiple charts hostage, seizing the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The legendary Mike Dean jumped aboard as Executive Producer of the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, the 2020 follow-up TOXIC BOOGALOO EP scored #96 on the Billboard Top 200, #9 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #13 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart, and #4 on the Nielsen Music Digital Albums Chart. Not to mention, they’ve pulled in 100 million-plus streams and 100 million-plus views to date. ZillaKami is a rare talent who is seamlessly rising to the ranks of major artists such as Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump God, with whom he recently collaborated. He’s a shape-shifting sonic force with an unbreakable grip on rap and rock that’s ready to bleed like never before on his 2021 solo debut.

KASH DOLL – LIKE A PRO FT. JUICY J

KASH DOLL RELEASES NEW TRACK & LYRIC VIDEO “LIKE A PRO” FEAT. JUICY J

Stars in 50 Cent’s New Starz Series ‘Black Mafia Family Out September 26

“Kash Doll is sharp, headstrong and savvy” – Billboard
“One of the most promising acts of female rap’s current class” – Nylon
“Kash Doll has established herself as a pioneering force in the industry.”– MTV
“Kash Doll has established herself as one of hip-hop’s leading female voices.” – XXL

Gold-selling Detroit rapper, entrepreneur, and actress Kash Doll drops her new track and lyric video “Like A Pro” feat. Juicy J via Republic Records.

As always, she comes through with the kind of raw lyrical fire that’s too hot to touch. Over a high-energy throwback beat, she delivers one raunchy and braggadocious bar after another with Juicy J joining her on the catchy hook.

Her most recent single Thumbin has already racked up millions of streams to date. Additionally, HotNewHipHop praised the track’s “addictive chorus and copious amounts of quotable lyrics, while hailing it as “the next big hit on short-form video sharing platforms like TikTok and Triller.

The track arrived on the heels of her knockout collaboration with DJ Famous—“Bad Azz” feat. Mulatto & Benny The Butcher, which has amassed 9 million streams and counting. Beyond features from REVOLT, Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan and more, UPROXX claimed, “Kash Doll, DJ Infamous, Mulatto, and Benny The Butcher show why the competition is mad with ‘Bad Azz.’”

Kash Doll, who has garnered over 1 billion streams worldwide since signing with Republic Records, continues to pull up everywhere this year. She features on Saweetie’s “Hoops” alongside the legendary Salt-N-Pepa from the mega-anticipated Space Jam: A New Legacy Soundtrack. She’ll take the stage at Detroit Summer Fest on August 13, Migos “Culture III” Las Vegas Weekender on October 15 and Rolling Loud LA on December 10. She will appear in a starring recurring role on STARZ’ Black Mafia Family, which will premiere on September 26.

Kash Doll continues to make waves. Receiving critical acclaim from Vulture and Marie Claire, Essence praised, “If there’s one rapper who can teach us a thing or two about remaining confident, it’s Kash Doll.” Meanwhile, she guested on “Friday Night Cypher” from Big Sean’s chart-dominating Detroit 2 and joined forces with HoodCelebrityy for “So Pretty.”

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, securing a new management deal with Title 9 Productions and inking a recording contract with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll. Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 85 million-plus total streams.

Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 30 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 101 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. Outside of music, this boss runs Kash Doll Enterprises and does charity work around her hometown. Her city bestowed the “Spirit of Detroit” Award upon her. Additionally, in 2019, Kash Doll released her debut album Stacked, received a 2019 BET Award nomination for “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist,” garnered critical acclaim for her album from BillboardMTV, UPROXX, BETForbes, Nylon and more and toured with Meek Mill. This year will be full of brand new music, acting and more from the Detroit star.

CONFIRM 8-DATE HEADLINING TOUR

SHARE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “WAIT A MINUTE MY GIRL”

Volbeat, the multi-platinum Danish band, share their version of “Don’t Tread On Me” from the forthcoming album, The Metallica Blacklist. The album features an unprecedented 50+ artists contributing a unique interpretation of their favorite cut from Metallica’s self-titled fifth album, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Metallica (aka “The Black Album”).

For “Don’t Tread On Me,” Volbeat has chosen the Børne Cancer Fonden in Denmark.

Michael Poulsen says about the song, “We didn’t want to touch any of the big hits on that album, which is quite difficult because they’re all hits, somehow. We were trying to pick a song that you don’t hear as much from that album, and the most important thing was to pick a song where we could transform it into a Volbeat song. “Don’t Tread on Me” definitely had a swing that I could turn into a Volbeat swing, and it turned out really great.” Listen to “Don’t Tread on Me” hereThe Metallica Blacklist will be available on digital and streaming on September 10th, and on vinyl and CD October 1.

Recently Volbeat announced their first headlining shows in nearly two years. Puncutated by festival appearances at Rebel Rock (Orlando, FL: September 23, 2021) and Aftershock Festival (Sacramento, CA: October 8, 2021), the eight-date headline run will see the band coming to cities including Atlanta, San Diego, and Los Angeles (full dates below). Special guests The Hu, Twin Temple, and Municipal Waste will be joining them for select dates. Tickets for these dates will go on sale on Friday, July 23 at 10am local time here.

The band also shared their new music video for “Wait A Minute My Girl.” The music video was directed by Sean Donnelly, founder of AWESOME+modest, with collages by Mengqing Yuan, and animation by Steve Yeung. The band said of the video: “After seeing the work they did on The Lady and the Dale we knew that Sean and the team at Awesome+modest could do something trippy and creative for “Wait A Minute My Girl.” This video exceeded even our wildest expectations. It’s weird, fun and crazy – we absolutely love it.”

Along with “Wait A Minute My Girl” Volbeat also recently shared their song “Dagen Før.” The two tracks, the band’s first new music since 2019’s album Rewind, Replay, Rebound, were written and recorded while the world was in lockdown during the pandemic. Michael, Kaspar and Jon recorded their parts with long-time producer Jacob Hansen in Denmark, while Rob worked remotely from New York. Watch the lyric videos for each song here.

“Wait A Minute My Girl” features saxophone player Doug Corcoran and piano player Raynier Jacob Jacildo, who both perform with JD McPherson’s band and previously appeared with Volbeat on 2019’s “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon).” Singer Mia Maja, who has worked with the band since Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, also appears on backing vocals. “Dagen Før” features guest vocals from Danish artist Stine Bramsen, who is known for her solo work as well as being a member of the band Alphabeat. The song, in the tradition of “The Garden’s Tale,” “Maybele I Hofteholder” and “For Evigt,” features both English and Danish lyrics, and marks the first commercially-released song that features Stine singing in her native Danish.

Since forming in 2001, Volbeat has gone from the clubs of Copenhagen to headlining stages around the world, including the famed Telia Parken stadium in Denmark (and becoming the only domestic artist to ever sell out the venue). Over the course of eight record-breaking albums the band has picked up number one songs (including eight #1s on the US Mainstream Rock chart and counting), multi-platinum certifications, awards and accolades (including a Grammy nomination) all over the planet.

WALLIE THE SENSEI – GOLDEN CHILD

COMPTON’S WALLIE THE SENSEI IS POETIC & RIVETING ON “GOLDEN CHILD” AND “BOMPTON 2 BALABASAS” ACOUSTIC STREET PERFORMANCE

Vulnerable, raw and untamed perfectly describe Compton native Wallie The Sensei, who’s latest musical effort “Golden Child” is out today. The 17-track mixtape which includes his breakout single “Scandalous” is heavily influenced by Wallie’s California roots and sonically redefines the legendary west coast sound. “Bompton 2 Balabasas” Acoustic Street performance here.

From start to finish, Wallie takes his listeners on a journey through his hometown of Compton where he speaks on his struggle to survive the cutthroat streets while always in pursuit of money, success and all the sweet things life has to offer. Make no mistake, Golden Child isn’t a story of tragedy, but a story of triumph, hustle and ultimately defeating a system designed for Wallie to fail.

Golden Child comes on the heels of Wallie’s “03 Flow” single which currently has over half a million views and over 1.5 million US streams. A true labor of love, 03 Flow pays homage to Watts native and fellow recording artist 03 Greedo who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence. 03 Flow has quickly become a fan favorite, taking on a life on its own with radio support, consistent increase in streams and critical praises from music peers like PnB Rock, industry heavyweights, radio DJs & more. On the record Wallie passionately sings “niggas playing like they demons, they don’t really mean it, choppa spray like we cleanin, bodies dropping on that cement” Wallie’s passion is intently felt on the song and has become the heart of the Golden Child project.

Golden Child also includes Wallie’s team-up with Detroit powerhouse 42 Dugg on the enthralling remix of Wallie’s own hit single “Scandalous.” The two trade bars with ease and confidence, as Wallie offers up some of his most lucid lines, recounting the struggles of success and the haters who would come for his head. Additional stand out tracks include “Lamb,” the lush throwback finds Wallie effortlessly singing over a buttery beat, showcasing his one-of-a-kind flow and knack for incisive lyrics about his come-up. “B*tch, nobody had it in my fam, I put my foot down,” he sings. “Put my other foot down like I could drive this car, let the motherf***kin hood down.” In Lamb, Wallie walks recollects his life’s trajectory beginning with his time on the streets, his narratives are poetic and detailed, rivaling rap’s most vivid writers.

Since the release of Wallie the Sensei’s No Love EP at the beginning of 2020, he’s quickly become a West Coast artist to watch. Respect magazine praised the “Scandalous” video for showcasing Compton’s “camaraderie, hustle, and rawness,” while Rosecrans Ave highlighted Wallie’s storytelling abilities, saying he is “providing guidance to those who come after” with his pain-stricken tales. After the hit of the “Scandalous” remix, Wallie the Sensei’s proved that his skyrocketing success is no fluke. Golden Child is poised to reach even more open-minded listeners. It’s full of anthems for hustling Cali natives and anyone who craves a little bit of glow-up magic.
