Spotlight on Art Block

By: Vaughn Lowery

As of late, we had the opportunity to speak with a Londoner artist, Art Block. His project has been supported by producer Ian Barter (Paloma Faith, Allman Brown, Hannah Grace) who recently worked on an album with British fashionista and singer Gabrielle.

What inspires your music?

I am inspired by the spiritual and emotional. Sometimes I feel my music is coming to me from a higher place and I try to draw upon that. It’s almost as if I’m just a channel for creativity. A few of my songs have been inspired by the memory of my mother who passed away many years ago. I would like my music to heal others.

And this new project?

The songs on Extended Play were written during lockdown when the whole world just stopped. It was a worrying time but also a time for reflection and appreciating beauty. The songs are some of my most personal yet, delving into dark aspects of my childhood, exploring my love of London where I was born, then returning to other themes of introspection and love. Love hopefully is the most powerful emotion radiating through the songs.

What’s next for you?

I am hoping to collaborate with some new musicians, remix songs and write something new. I’m constantly writing these days as if I’m on the cusp of a creative wave. I’m looking forward to playing live more too.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

I admire Marcus Hamblett’s work as a session musician and artist. Also Jay Chakravorty with his electronic and strings compositions which mold the old with the new.

Do you write all of your lyrics? if so, can you elaborate on your creative process?

Yes, I do. I think I have already touched upon it above. I hear melodies first and try to find the best words to match them. Sometimes it takes several drafts before finding the right words for a song. Experience also has a transformative creative power.

Describe your sound and genre? List your top five influences and song?

My sound is in the alt-folk and classic alt-rock category. Some have compared my music to Thom Yorke or Nick Drake, which is a huge compliment! 

I don’t really have a top five influence, I listen to everything from Wu Tang Clan to Rachmaninoff and everything in between! I suppose Pink Floyd have been an influential band over the years and more recently Bear’s Den or Ben Howard. I’m also a Depeche Mode fan, which probably explains my electronic influences.

How do you feel about the music industry overall? Do you think artists should still sign with major labels?

The music industry is very fickle and focused too much on commercial products rather than nurturing talent. There are too many people doing the same thing and the market is over saturated. People have low attention spans leading to two and a half minute songs designed to please Spotify’s algorithm.

Whether artists should join a major label is up to them. They can provide more bandwidth and resources than doing it by yourself. But as I say above many of these companies focus solely on making a profit. It might be better in the short term to remain an independent artist where you keep most of any revenues you are able to generate. Labels are also known for dropping artists quickly who don’t sell enough records.

Is there any advice that you could offer to aspiring recording artists?

Write as much as possible and listen to the best in your genre and watch what they do. 

Are you aligned with any humanitarian endeavors or organizations?

Not formally but as I mentioned above I would like my music to heal. There’s a lot of pain in the world, mostly caused by ourselves, which music can help to alleviate. There are circumstances beyond our control. But at the same time there’s so much we can do as individuals to bring positive change in the world.

HD4President – Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow)

BATON-ROUGE, LA-BASED HD4PRESIDENT SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR TOUCH DOWN 2 CAUSE HELL (BOW BOW BOW)

TikTok Views Surpass 1.5 Billion

HD4President shared the official video for his breakthrough hit, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow). View HERE.

I feel like the ‘Touch Down’ video captures the right vision for the song and matches the viral moments from TikTok and social media, says HD4President. And it shows good vibes and fun times, bringing fun back to the music scene.

Initially released independently, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow) exploded after a TikTok user uploaded a video of herself and a friend dancing to the track in May 2021. To date, there have been over 1.2 million TikTok creations, including clips by Lizzo, Coi Leray, City Girls, Latto, Niecy Nash, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, and over 1.5 billion views on the platform. Complex included Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow) in its recent round-up of The Best TikTok Trends and Challenges Right Now.

HD4President delivers brazen lyrics, serving as a reflection of his life experiences. Growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, he found inspiration for his music in life itself, as well as in the music of favorite artists such as Soulja Slim, JAY-Z and Juvenile. While still staying true to his Baton Rouge jiggin roots, HD4President’s music is a unique mix of hip hop, R&B, soul and pop, which translates into infectious, high energy hits.

Fletcher – Healing

FLETCHER DEBUTS THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR EMPOWERED NEW SINGLE HEALING WATCH HERE

FLETCHER debuts the official video for her new single Healing, a powerful anthem to reflect the times, one of self-awareness and discovery. Watch the video HERE and download/stream Healing HERE.

V Magazine said, In stunning new visuals co-directed by Fletcher and Ava Rikki, the rising artist enters a new era. Your next summer anthem has arrived… FLETCHER isn’t just a pop star but an artist and this music video is her testimony. A simplistic trap beat backgrounds (her) airy light vocals as she declares herself on the journey of self love and recovery, unlearning false self perceptions and entering the next phase of a glow-up journey.

Healing finds the acclaimed singer/songwriter reclaiming her interior resolve, making a natural progression from her critically-lauded EP THE S(EX) TAPES, a boldly personal project executive-produced by Malay (Lorde, Frank Ocean). Co-written with Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, Khalid) and ALDAE (Justin Bieber, Kid Laroi), Healing is rooted in the raw emotional intimacy that FLETCHER is known for and offers her most gripping vocal performance to date.

NME said, ‘Healing’ (is) luminous…An ode to the reclamation of one’s inner strength, the new track shines with a soundscape of warm guitars and summery synth percussion, over which Fletcher boldly embraces her rawness and humanity. Variance declared, If purposeful pop is a thing, FLETCHER’s ‘Healing’ is absolutely it, and Uproxx named the soaring track, Best New Pop Music and said, leaning on a skittering beat, FLETCHER lilts powerful lines about the important of understanding there’s no such thing as a quick fix for your personal problems.

The process of making this song was really freeing, says FLETCHER. We’re all healing from something, she says. The world is healing right now. I can feel the collective energy of people waking up to their power and connecting to themselves in a way that humanity never has before. Healing isn’t a linear process, and it’ll take you on the most insane roller coaster ride of your life. But it’s worth the view at the top.

Currently at work on her debut album, Healing is FLETCHER’s first single since her 2020 hit Bitter, a track that’s amassed over 150 million streams to date. Hailed by Idolator as a breakup anthem for the ages, Bitter is a standout cut from THE S(EX) TAPES, a collection of magnetic and moody pop songs about finding your forever person before you find yourself and, as a result, needing to uncover the parts of you that remain unknown. Soon after arriving last September, the EP earned praise from outlets like Nylon, Teen Vogue, PAPER, SPIN (who noted there aren’t any rules when it comes to FLETCHER’s music) and more.

About FLETCHER

Praised by leading outlets like TIME, Wonderland, V Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview Magazine, GQ, The Guardian and more, FLETCHER hails from Asbury Park, New Jersey, where she cultivated her passion for music and her unforgettably candid storytelling. After graduating from NYU’s famed Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music, FLETCHER carved out a distinct space for herself in pop music, and in 2019 released her debut EP you ruined new york city for me via Capitol Records. The widely lauded EP features her breakthrough hit Undrunk, a track that spent several weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, scored the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Chart, emerged as the fastest-rising song at pop radio from a new artist in the past five years, and earned FLETCHER a nomination for iHeartRadio’s Best New Pop Artist. Over the years, FLETCHER has sold out several headline tours and landed impressive slots at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, and other major festivals. Released in September 2020, FLETCHER’s EP THE S(EX) TAPES hit No. 1 on iTunes across all genres and drew acclaim from outlets like Teen Vogue, SPIN, PAPER, and many others. An unfiltered look into FLETCHER’s world, the EP is a collection of magnetic and moody pop songs about feeling like you’ve found your forever person before you find yourself and, as a result, needing to uncover the parts of you that remain unknown. The EP’s lead single Bitter has now surpassed 150 million global streams. FLETCHER’s television performances include The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show and Ellen. An outspoken activist of the #MeToo movement throughout her career, FLETCHER released the 2018 track I Believe You in support of sexual assault survivors, garnering over 50 million streams to date. She was also recently nominated for a 2021 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist. One of FLETCHER’s latest tracks, Last Laugh is available now on the soundtrack to the Academy Award-winning film Promising Young Woman.

ARKELLS × BLINK ONCE

ARKELLS ANNOUNCE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW STUDIO ALBUM, BLINK ONCE, DUE FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 30TH

NEW SINGLE ONE THING I KNOW” OUT TODAY

LIVE DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON 

Today, Arkells announced their sixth studio album, Blink Once, to be released on September 30th via Universal Music Canada. This new collection of songs prove Arkells continue to push their sound to new heights, with the anthemic Blink Once promising to live up to their famous live show.

Pre-save Blink Once now via your preferred platform.

Now more than ever, it seems our lives can change in the blink of an eye. We began working on this album before the world changed and this title felt right given where we’ve collectively landed. Everyday you wake up and you think you know a lot of stuff, then it turns out – you don’t.
– Arkells frontman Max Kerman

The bi-coastal project, recorded in LA and completed in Toronto, includes current hit single, “You Can Get It” featuring K.Flay, which has charted in the #1 spot at Canadian Alternative Radio for 4 weeks and is their fifth #1 at the format. “You Can Get It” was prominently featured in the E3 launch of the Forza Horizon 5 video game trailer this summer. Blink Once also includes #1 track “Years In The Making,” as well as “All Roads,” which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy.

The announcement comes alongside the release of sure fire live stand-out, “One Thing I Know,” a rowdy, feel-good sing-a-along that is bursting at the seams. The music video was filmed after-hours at No Frills’ Dufferin Mall location in downtown Toronto, and finds the band mischievously performing the track at full throttle. “This song is about not being ashamed of who you are and where you come from,” notes Kerman. “The best version of yourself lets your colours show – to feel free, weird and unburdened by all the things out of our control.”

Watch the official “One Thing I Know” music video on YouTube now.

Regularly credited as one of the hardest working bands (period), Arkells have stayed ever-present, even in a global pandemic. Releasing three #1 singles and picking up the 2021 JUNO Award for Group of The Year, Arkells also filled their time off the road by releasing their first acoustic-leaning project, Campfire Chords – a deluxe LP & play-at-home guitar chord book inspired by their most beloved hits, and the band’s live streamed interactive music lessons that moved fans to learn new skills while “flattening the curve” from home.

About Arkells: 

Hailed by The Globe and Mail as “the right kind of band for this decade,” Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present – building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and new music at every turn. The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells hometown concert that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, and is slated to return in 2022. On the heels of three #1 singles, Arkells continue to unleash new music and tour dates as the band and their fans return to live in-person festivities. Their hotly anticipated new album, Blink Once, releases globally September 30th.

Pie’rre Bourne – Groceries

Following his return with his melodic track “4U,” Pi’erre Bourne unveils his latest single and accompanying video “Groceries” today via SossHouse/Interscope Records. On the ethereal track Pi’erre continues to raise the stakes. He delivers a steady flow of bars over his signature infectious production.  In the video directed Jay Cloud the Grammy® Award winning producer (Kanye West’s Jesus Is King) taps into an alternate life. Set in a grocery store we see Pi’erre involve himself in a heist filled with action, suspense, and beautiful women–watch the dreamy visual HERE.

“Groceries” arrives fresh on the heels of Pi’erre’s return to rap with his hit single, “4U.” The track, which now has over 2 million views on YouTube, garnered support across digital streaming platforms as well as received praise from several press outlets including Pitchfork, The Fader, Complex, and more. Earlier this month Pi’erre also headlined #GENIUSLive’s Virtual Concert where he performed a sold out a set of tracks including music off his forthcoming album The Life Of Pi’erre 5.

Pi’erre Bourne’s momentum has been undeniable over the last few years. In 2019, Bourne released his acclaimed major label debut, The Life of Pi’erre 4, but he’s stayed as busy as ever, asserting himself as a go-to producer both in Atlanta and for artists nationwide.  He handled a number of beats for Lil Uzi’s Eternal Atake, including “Bean (Kobe)” featuring Chief Keef, “Yessirskiii,” “Wassup,” and “Money Spread” featuring Young Thug. That album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and landed multiple tracks on the Hot 100, leading to Pi’erre topping Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart. Pi’erre produced Drake’s long-awaited, “Pain 1993” which hit the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. He also continued to receive praise from publications like Pitchfork, who recently counted him among “the best rap producers of the last few years. Now, Bourne continues to expand his scope, unwilling to settle into any defined role. With hits like “4U” in the pipeline, it’s hard to imagine the young star stopping any time soon.

Command Sisters – Feel Good

Command Sisters released a brand new single titled “Feel Good” through 21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada/Republic Records.

You can hear the song by clicking right here.

Command Sisters comprises of sisters Charlotte and Sarah Command, who are looking to turn popular culture red. The two built a distinct sound and style that set them apart from everyone else when they were just children.

Sarah Command was inspired by guitar players like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Orianthi while Charlotte Command pulled from Sia and The Weeknd. Combining the styles of the two gave the duo a sharp sound that combines pop vocals with edgy instruments.

They don’t just pull audiences in with their music. They’ve carefully cultivated a look that matches their music, using high fashion to attract attention.

To this point in their careers, they’ve played all over the United States and Canada, and they’ve partnered with the likes of Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics and Boss/Roland.

They’ve also mastered social media posting high quality content daily.

The release of “Feel Good” comes right off the release of “Lonely Lullaby” and the debut singles from Command Sisters titled “I Can Do What I Want To” and “I Like It,” which released in the summer.

They recorded all of the tracks in Los Angeles with award-winning producer Tim Pagnotta, who has worked with bands like WALK THE MOON, Weezer, Blink-182 and Neon Trees. They’ve set themselves up perfectly for the release of their debut EP, which will drop early in 2021.

When talking about “Feel Good,” Command Sisters said we need something to make us all, well, feel good.

“This song means shamelessly going after what you want and not apologizing for that! Doing the things that make YOU feel good, regardless of what people say. It’s all about self love,” they said.
