Sally Boy New Single "Like That" Cover Art via RCA Records for use by 360 MAGAZINE

SALLY BOY – LIKE THAT

Today, rising artist Sally Boy releases his new single, “like that,” out now via Loud Robot/RCA Records. The single follows the artist to watch’s latest run of hits including “true american” and “i love u,” and is off his forthcoming EP, Music 2 Crash 2, out August 24

The chilled-out single is a low-fi release that puts Sally Boy’s melodic vocals on full display, volleying back and forth between crooning choruses and his signature fast-paced, witty lyricism. The breezy alt-pop track echoes the easy-going, summer-soaked sounds fans can expect from his latest body of work later this month. 

About Sally Boy

The Philadelphia-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter hit the scene in 2020 with his debut EP EREZ, all while being a senior at USC majoring in popular music and minoring in philosophy. The EP garnered numerous accolades, including features in WonderlandFlauntAmerican SongwriterOnes to Watch, and more, in addition to earning Sally Boy a placement on Pigeons & Planes’ ‘ Best New Artists’ list. He’s also garnered Spotify support, landing on anti pop, Indie Pop, Varsity Bars, young & free, idk playlists.

Self-acceptance is at the root of Sally Boy. Erez adopted the name after writing the song “Sally Boy,” his first real solo effort outside his work with his band. It’s a dreamy conversation with his younger self set to a beautiful acoustic guitar. As a child, Erez was sometimes teased for being soft. Emotional. Feminine. The bullshit machismo that young boys absorb and inflict on others made him feel stifled and strange. Like he didn’t belong. He tried to bury that side of himself and craft a persona that felt tougher, more masculine. But it wasn’t true. By dubbing himself Sally Boy, Erez dispenses with inauthentic self-presentation. His 2021 EP, Lies I Tell Myself, captures that tone perfectly.  

Lies I Tell Myself is about lightness, energy, and unabashedly being yourself. Each song on the record contains at least one line in which he tells himself some half-truth to feel better. Despite the concept behind the project, Erez didn’t force anything during the songwriting. These are simply expressions of who he is and where he’s at. Sally Boy‘s music is playful, with drums that get into your system at the molecular level, forcing you to move; the lyrics have swagger, even when dabbling in self-deprecation. It’s an amusing celebration of accepting yourself, flaws and all.

Doechii New Single "she / her / black bitch" Cover Art via U Music Group for use by 360 MAGAZINE

DOECHII – SHE

Today Doechii drops her first EP for Top Dawg Entertainment / Capitol Records she / her / black bitch. Listen HERE.

The EP includes production from Kal Banx, Hit-Boy, Bankroll Got It and Devin Malik, and is Executive Produced by Anthony ‘Top Dawg‘ Tiffith and Anthony Moosa Tiffith Jr.

The project cements the Tampa native as a distinct voice whose versatile talents range from quick-fire bars to seductive singing. On she / her / black bitch Doechii outlines different layers of her life experience: from villainous to confident to soft and sad, and to overall proving that she matters. As NPR stated Doechii reclaims and spits back at anyone who dares to diminish her power.

Many times I’ve been referred to as a bitch as a way to gaslight me out of certain spaces, something I think many people can relate to in one way or another,” says Doechii. “Lots of people will call you various names for doing something differently.

So I decided to take ownership of the black bitch and title my EP she/ her/ black bitch and reclaim that motherf***ing power, Doechii continues. So if you’ve ever been put down for being yourself, just remember you’re powerful and unapologetic- these songs are for you.”

In 2022 the Doechii came out swinging, chosen as an XXL Freshman and tapped as an Artist to Watch in Rolling Stone, NPR, Vulture, Complex, Uproxx, Pigeons and Planes, FADER, and more. Doechii performed on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and on the mainstage on the BET Awards. She was also chosen as the RADAR US Cover Artist at Spotify; the VEVO DSCVR Artist for June; the BET Artist of the Month; MTV‘s Push Artist for July; and Billboard crowned her both Artist of the Month and a Queer Game-Changer. Doechii‘s record Persuasive also made Obama‘s Summer playlist.

Doechii has dominated since the release of her unwaveringly original EPs 2020s, Oh the Places You‘ll Go, featuring the viral smash Yucky Blucky Fruitcake, and 2021’s BRA-LESS. This new release continues a hot streak for Doechii following the brazen Bitch I’m Nice the rebellious Crazy and the seductive Persuasive (which SZA later jumped on).

Expect more unparalleled, genre-bending music from the multi-faceted Doechii, the self-proclaimed swamp princess.

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.

Morray × Polo G – Trenches (Remix)

MORRAY RELEASES HIS NEW REMIX OF TRENCHES FEATURING POLO G

WATCH TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

BUY/STREAM TRENCHES (REMIX) FT. POLO G: HERE

‘Trenches’, from an album due next week titled Street Sermons, rides the minor chords and trap beats that often accompany antisocial boasts. But while ‘Trenches’ doesn’t ignore gangs, drugs or poverty, Morray also recognizes a community that holds families, neighbors and friends – The New York Times

Few crooning rappers have his polish, resonance, and soul. – SPIN

With only four songs on streaming platforms—all released in 2020—Fayetteville, North Carolina rapper Morray has already proven he’s a hitmaker. His debut single ‘Quicksand’ is undeniable, anchored by the type of hook you get from a Roddy Ricch or Rod Wave song and infused with storytelling and charisma to paint a picture even if you’re unfamiliar with the newcomer. – Pigeons & Planes 

Fresh Off His First-Ever Performance at Rolling Loud, the 2021 XXL Freshman Recruits a Kindred Spirit to Add a Verse to a Street Sermons Highlight

Morray’s emotional singing and empathetic lyrics make him an ideal avatar for those struggling in the streets, and an excellent role model for those looking to make it out. His song Trenches is an ode to people who think they are out of options, urging them to stay positive through the pain. Today, the Fayetteville, NC native shares Trenches (Remix), which adds a verse from Polo G, another street storyteller whose lyrics speak for the less fortunate. The new remix juxtaposes Morray’s gospel-influenced passion with Polo’s plaintive and conversational melodies, the younger rapper spinning a succinct 16 about his rise from tragedy to triumph: Member I was f*cked up, now my foreign in the hood parked/You can beat the system if you street and booksmart, intones Polo G.

Directed by Justice Silvera, the video follows the story of a man who works hard every day to put food on his family’s plates, resisting the clarion call of street life so he can be present for his wife and young daughter. Morray and Polo G provide the perspective of those who’ve escaped their past hardship, but their lyrics prove that men like the video’s protagonist deserve just as much respect as any rap star. Trenches (Remix) is the latest in a long line of quality videos from Morray, most recently the video for Mistakes, a highlight from his debut album Street Sermons.

Debuting at  #41 on the Billboard 200 and propelling Morray to #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, Street Sermons taps into the spiritual uplift and church-trained singing that makes Morray’s brand of hip-hop so unique, taking unflinching looks at the Fayetteville native’s youthful struggles and indiscretions and examining his motivations to succeed. Home to his breakout single Quicksand, which recently earned a GOLD certification from the RIAA and surpassed the 100 million view milestone on YouTube, the project contains universal truths about the tragedies and triumphs of growing up in the hood, filtered through Morray’s experience as a neighborhood kid made good. Complex ranked Street Sermons at #10 on their list of Best Albums of 2021 So Far.

Earlier this summer, Morray earned a position on the coveted XXL Freshman list for 2021. The honor is the latest in a long line of accolades, including one to watch designations from Complex, Billboard, SPIN, Pigeons & Planes, and many more. An engaging live performer, as evidenced by his recent appearance on JImmy Kimmel Live, Morray was highlighted by Rolling Stone as the Best Debut performer at last weekend’s Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

With Street Sermons and his newfound position as a XXL Freshman, Morray culminates his meteoric rise and proves that he’s ready to build an artistic legacy and a nest egg for his wife and kids. For an artist with Morray’s talent, the sky’s the limit.

Max Leone – Malleable

MAX LEONE PREMIERES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “MALLEABLE”

21-YEAR-OLD SONGWRITER/PRODUCER’S DEBUT EP DUE OUT LATER THIS YEAR

“Burgeoning pop star”- Billboard

“Smooth vocals and sticky melodies”- Paper

“One of pop’s next young stars” – Pigeons and Planes 

Today, songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Max Leone shares his new single “Malleable” and its accompanying video. Released via Darkroom Records, “Malleable” showcases the 21-year-old’s artist’s signature sound — an alt-leaning yet urban-inspired breed of lo-fi bedroom pop.

Listen to “Malleable” by Max Leone HERE.

Set against a backdrop of stark beats and moody guitar work, “Malleable” channels the pain and frustration of drifting apart from someone who once felt close. With his delicate balance of detailed storytelling and plainspoken confession, Leone reveals his gift for crafting unforgettable melodies and lyrics that cut right to the heart.

True to his DIY sensibilities, Leone created the video for “Malleable” along with his sister while the two were quarantined in their hometown of Portland, Oregon. As the camera follows Leone through lonely landscapes and empty streets, each shot perfectly intensifies the song’s bittersweet mood.

“Malleable” arrives as the follow-up to Leone’s recent single “The Beach,” an Alexander 23 produced track that earned acclaim from NME (who praised his “genuine raw talent”) and Ones to Watch (who noted that “we’re expecting Leone to hold a steady presence in pop’s next wave”). Earlier this year, Leone drew raves for “Cautious” — a February release that was quickly added to Triple J rotation and supported by BBC Radio 1, with Billboard hailing Leone as a “Gen Z bedroom pop star.”

Leone is now at work on his debut EP, due out later this year. With its themes of self-doubt, nostalgia, and the tension between keeping up appearances and striving to build real-life connections, the EP tells the story of navigating a new city alone while chasing a potentially far-fetched dream.

About Max Leone:

Born and raised in Portland, Max Leone took up guitar at the age of seven, then later began experimenting with violin, drums, and piano. He soon started composing his own material and playing in jazz bands, in addition to teaching himself music production and posting his remixes to SoundCloud. Although his tremendous passion for music eventually led him to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music as a guitar principal, Leone left the school after one year and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue music full-time. Soon after signing with Darkroom Records, he made his label debut with “First Grade” — a January 2020 release that quickly garnered acclaim from outlets like Hillydilly.

Beabadoobee Releases EP

Beabadoobee Releases EP Loveworm via Dirty Hit Records

PRESS HERE To Listen

PRESS HERE To Listen To “Disappear”

London based bedroom-pop songwriter Beabadoobee has released her sophomore EP, Loveworm, on Dirty Hit Records. Billboard, who released a track by track of Loveworm, highlighted Bea Kristi’s “languid vocals, pointed songwriting chops and jangly, grunge-inspired sound” on the new EP, which you can PRESS HERE to stream.

“This EP Loveworm was inspired by all the music I listened to during a hard time in my life,” Bea told Pigeons and Planes who named her one of the Best New Artists for April. “It helped me forget about everything. From The Moldy Peaches to Pavement to Daniel Johnston, music was always a means of escapism for me. I wanted to make songs that could belong to one of my playlists. Something people can dance and cry to. The songs on Loveworm pretty much sum up what I was feeling at the time… love is hard, complicated and I’m pretty fragile. Sometimes it’s hard to balance that with school and music but I guess writing the songs for the EP helped me a whole lot. And I hope it helps some people out too.”

Born in Manilla and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. Her first track, “Coffee” gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her debut EP, Patched Up (released via Dirty Hit) which features “If You Want To” and “Dance With Me“, and has received support from Noisey, Nylon, The Fader, Bustle and The Guardian, amongst others with NME already crowning her as one of their 100 essential artists to watch in 2019.

Loveworm Track Listing

  1. Disappear
  2. 1999
  3. Apple Cider
  4. Ceilings
  5. Angel
  6. You Lie All The Time
  7. Soren

“Bernard Jabs is the coolest high schooler in the world… With one of the most intriguing voices in the rap game, he makes nearly any flow or cadence sound cool.” – Elevator

ABOUT BERNARD JABS

In an era where there seems to be a side-story of viral fame or leveraging online connections to rise to the top, 17-year-old high school student Bernard Jabs has carved his budding career out from pure authenticity. In Bernard Jabs’ first uploaded track, Gotta Get It, there is the obvious sound of his younger teenage voice, but within that sound is also the raw skill Bernard holds. His ability to channel the charisma of the music he grew up on and blend it with more current rap trends keeps Bernard circulating as one of the brightest new talents of a generation.

Growing up in Tifton, Georgia during part of the height of Southern rap, Bernard gravitated towards the star power of Lil Wayne. After seeing Wayne in the music video for “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” Bernard was entranced in the lifestyle – the cars, the girls, the money, the confidence. Bernard Jabs took to the culture surrounding southern rap and used that history to guide him towards the future.
