Nothing But Thieves Releases New Single – “Impossible”

Southend five-piece Nothing But Thieves have announced the release of new single Impossible, which is available now. The song follows recent singles Is Everybody Going Crazy? and Real Love Song and is taken from their forthcoming third album Moral Panic. They have also announced a huge UK, Ireland and European tour for Autumn 2021, including a headline show at London’s The O2.

THEIR NEW ALBUM, MORAL PANIC, WILL BE RELEASED ON OCTOBER 23RD.

LISTEN: IMPOSSIBLE

Nothing But Thieves are no strangers to powerful anthems, and with Impossible, they’ve written another vast soundscape. Produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Wolf Alice), Impossible is an exuberant track opening with raw emotion before launching into a huge chorus full of elated melody and affecting lyrics of hope and passion. The band says,

“In a way ‘Impossible’ is the complete antithesis of everything else on the album, which has a lot of anxiety and confusion about what’s happening on this planet. This became the opposite, zooming into one person’s head, just being lifted up and transported by a feeling of possibility and hope. It was a moment of relief that both we and the album needed.”

Recent single Real Love Song was included as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World before being added to the B List on Radio 1 and has already achieved 3.5 million streams worldwide. Richly anthemic and wildly grandiose, it builds triumphantly with a hymn-like euphoric melody alongside singer Conor’s poignant almost operatic vocals. Amidst mesmerising animations and a gritty performance from the band themselves, the Basak Erol directed video showcases the dreamlike story of three characters seeking love in the wrong places.

Remaining on the Radio 1 Playlist for 8 weeks, as one of the longest running tracks on their playlist, Is Everybody Going Crazy? was the band’s biggest Airplay hit to date, achieving almost 12 million streams worldwide and welcomed the exciting return of Nothing But Thieves. A gritty dark rock song, lyrically it discusses a fractured, barely recognisable civilisation and desire for escapism, which proved curiously relevant to the world right now.

Real Love Song, Is Everybody Going Crazy? and recent release Unperson is the band’s first new music since their 2018 EPWhat Did You Think When You Made Me This Way, their 2017 acclaimed album Broken Machine, which charted at #2 in the UK album chart, and their debut self-titled album Nothing But Thieves. Their third album Moral Panic will be released on 23rdOctober, with the pre-orders now live here and Unperson available as an instant grat.

The past few years have been quite a ride for Nothing But Thieves. Amassing over 700,000 album sales and 750 million streams so far, they have built up a loyal and wide following for their impactful alt rock sound, cementing themselves as one of the best current rock bands in the world. Selling 150,000 tickets on their last album campaign, which included a sold-out show at London’s Alexandra Palace and selling out their entire worldwide Broken Machine headline tour, their success has been global.

The band have performed on TV shows such as The Late Late Show With James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, after their debut became the bestselling debut from a UK rock band in the US in 2015 and played packed out international shows from Poland to Amsterdam, where they headlined an arena to 6,000 fans. After intimately debuting new songs at Tufnell Park Dome earlier recently for a BRITs/War Child gig, they were set to tour internationally earlier this year, including a show to 6,500 people at Moscow Adrenaline Stadium.

They have now announced a brand new UK, Ireland and European tour for Autumn 2021, including their biggest ever headline London show at O2 Arena. Tickets go on sale on Friday 18th September at 9am, with pre-sale tickets available from Wednesday 16thSeptember at 9am for all pre-orders of ‘Moral Panic’. Full dates are as follows:

BENEE
From Auckland, New Zealand, breakthrough pop star Stella Bennett, aka BENEE, remains unfazed, unchanged and almost impervious to the cataclysmic success coming her way since releasing her debut EP, FIRE ON MARZZ, last summer. Already her tale is one of eye-watering statistics and achievements. Her story is international and expanding by the hour, across modern and traditional platforms. Her audience seems endless. BENEE, however, remains easygoing, centered and — most importantly — herself. It’s less than one year since the release of her second EP of 2019, STELLA & STEVE, garnered knockout reviews. Breakthrough track “Supalonely” feat. Gus Dapperton is a slice of upbeat and original pop — like its creator, a little exotic and cheerfully weird. The song hits like a ray of sunshine, jammed to the hilt with personality and punctuated by BENEE’s verbal tics. BENEE’s music runs the gamut of everything pop can be in 2020 and is filled with her quirks in the experimental indie sounds and the cartoon-ish sprawl of her lyrical imagery. Her fans have a naturally intimate connection with her deceptively easy-going pop and that thing she still loves to call her “BENEE-VISION.”

Duckwrth
Over the last five years, L.A.-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015), I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017), and The Falling Man EP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL, and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson .Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s “All American,” HBO’s “Insecure” and “Real Time With Bill Maher” and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon,and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith. His new buzzworthy tracks “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali, Radio Ahlee and Bayli and “Coming Closer” feat. Julia Romana and G.L.A.M. will appear on is upcoming new album.

Conan Gray
Conan Gray has quickly cemented himself as one of the freshest voices in music during his meteoric two year rise. The singer-songwriter from central Texas, known for writing all his songs from his bedroom and for his unapologetic authenticity, has quickly amassed one of the most engaged, rabid fanbases in the music industry. He first gained attention when he uploaded his song “Idle Town” online, which he recorded from his bedroom in Texas. Upon release, the song exploded and lead to the release of his critically acclaimed Sunset Season EP. He soon made his debut tv appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and was featured in Vogue, VMan, Teen Vogue, Paper, The Fader, MTV, I-D, Billboard, Wonderland, Clash, Notion, Seventeen and more. His debut album, Kid Krow, released in March 2020, reached #5 on Billboard Top 200, #1 Pop Album, #2 Billboard Top Album sales and was the biggest new artist pop debut in over two years. Conan has been recognized as one the most prominent voices of his generation, and with the release of Kid Krow his music, has been streamed over 1 billion times. He has sold out three North American tours, two European tours, and additional shows around the world.

Kiana Ledé
Earlier this year, platinum-selling Phoenix-born and Los Angeles-based artist Kiana Ledé released her debut album Kiki. The album notably bowed in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart, Top 5 of the Apple Music R&B/Soul Albums Chart, Top 5 of the iTunes R&B/Soul Albums Chart, and Top 10 of the Apple Music Overall Albums Chart. It has impressively gathered over 30 million streams in addition to receiving tastemaker praise from ELLE, Billboard, Highsnobiety, Vibe, and many more. She also made history by shooting the entire music video for the single “Chocolate” feat. Ari Lennox.

Just who is Kiana Ledé? On the one hand, you know her as a fierce and fiery force in R&B responsible for bangers such as the platinum-certified “EX,” “Mad At Me” and “Chocolate” feat. Ari Lennox and has received over 1 billion streams globally and praise from Complex, Vibe, Billboard, ROLLACOASTER Magazine and more. On the other hand, you may recognize her from series such as “Scream” and “All About The Washingtons.” But, who is she? “KIKI,” she answers. On her aptly titled full-length debut, she reveals every side of herself: the vulnerability, the vitality, the anger, the lust, the loyalty, the joy, the darkness, and the truth as evinced on song.

Long before all of this, the songstress “from South Phoenix with Black, Mexican, Native American, and White ancestry” grew up between divorced parents. She played classical instruments and competed in pageants — but popped wheelies on dirt bikes and got under the hood to fix a car or two. Eventually, an adventurous spirit carried her from Arizona to Los Angeles where she began a journey that comes full circle in 2020.

Jeremy Zucker
Growing up in suburban New Jersey, 24-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker has always been surrounded by music. In 2015, he released his first EP as a freshman at Colorado College pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology, and by 2017 he had signed a major-label record deal. Since then, he has released four EP’s with breakthrough singles, such as Gold Certified singles, “talk is overrated” featuring blackbear and “all the kids are depressed,” and his biggest song to date, “comethru,” which is Platinum Certified and has surpassed over one billion streams. In 2019, he collaborated with Chelsea Cutler on brent and their Gold Certified global viral hit, “you were good to me.” Overall, Zucker has already crossed over a staggering 3 billion total streams on his catalogue, as this year he celebrated the release of his debut album love is not dying and recently released single “supercuts” out now.

Hrvy – Nevermind

Today, Capitol Records released “NEVERMIND,” the first single and leadoff track from HRVY’s debut album, Can Anybody Hear Me? “NEVERMIND” sees HRVY set the stage for pop domination with the juddering electro-pop sound he’s been so passionately perfecting over the last two years.

Co-written with J Hart (Justin Bieber) and Pollack (Lauv), the new single is a burst of pitch-shifted vocals that echoes the dance floor melancholy of previous single “ME BECAUSE OF YOU,” which is also included on the album.

HRVY will perform “NEVERMIND” on Nickelodeon’s “All That,” airing tomorrow, July 25, at 9:00 PM/8:00 Central Time. HRVY said, “I wrote this song last summer with J Hart and Pollack, who have written some of my favorite songs of the last few years. I’m so pleased this track turned out how it did and that everyone can finally hear it and see how the new music on the album is going to sound.”

Set for release on August 28, the album also includes the global smash “Personal,” which is certified Gold in the U.S., plus recent releases “Unfamiliar” and “Be Okay” (with R3HAB).

Can Anybody Hear Me? illuminates the many sides of HRVY and his musical tastes. While the plaintive acoustic ballad “She Isn’t You” nods to old school boy bands like *NSYNC, the title track is a banger that is sure to go down a storm in a live scenario. “ME BECAUSE OF YOU” showcases a musician truly coming into his own, embraced by fans who are experiencing similar growing pains as they transition into adulthood.

HRVY’s quest to craft the perfect pop song is connecting with an astronomical audience worldwide, with 20,000 tickets already sold for his upcoming rescheduled world tour, which includes dates in the U.S., U.K., Europe, Asia and Australia. At just 21, HRVY is already a global star, having traveled the world and scoring collaborations with artists such as Korean supergroup NCT Dream, esteemed Norwegian DJ and The Vamps collaborator Matoma, Seeb and Goodboys and Cuban-born Latino sensation Malú Travejo. Wonderland said, “HRVY is undoubtedly one to watch” and GQ (Britain) noted, “HRVY is the whole pop star package.” He has 4.8 million Instagram followers, over 2.7 million YouTube subscribers, 1 million followers on Spotify and more than 1 billion combined streams to his name, including over 250,000 streams in the U.S. alone. 2018 saw HRVY perform his biggest ever UK headline gig at London’s Hammersmith Apollo and last year saw him performing at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, sharing the same stage as Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Stormzy and Charli XCX – both proving to be landmark moments in the pop star’s career.

Summer Walker – Life on Earth

Featuring NO1-NOAH (“SWV” & “White Tee”) and PARTYNEXTDOOR (“My Affection”), Walker brilliantly collides with both artists, while maintaining her entrancing mystique as R&B’s prized gem. Walker’s streaming excellence continues to be her calling card, as Life on Earth netted an astounding 32 million streams its opening week.

Even the pandemic can’t thwart Walker’s momentum, as her legion of supporters came in droves from various cities for her recent activations.

With Walker’s pink UFO on-site, her devotees soaked in the galactic experience at various showings throughout the evening. On release day, Walker treated her Atlanta fans once again with her spacey Battle on Earth Laser Tag experience at the Westside Cultural Arts Center.

With social distancing encouraged, fans safely ventured to several locations in NYC to meet the space shuttle for free ice cream and space candy from the LVRN songstress. For the cherry on top, Walker chatted with Apple Music’s R&B Now Radio to discuss her new EP, her creative process and more.

Walker’s scorching success continues to be the talk of the music industry. After her debut project Last Day of Summer spent 35 weeks on the Billboard 200, she quickly bloomed into an R&B powerhouse with her 2x platinum breakout single, “Girls Need Love” from her 2018 project Last Day of Summer. Walker would capitalize on her success with her magnum opus, 2019’s Over It. Residing on the Billboard 200 Top 10 for 11 weeks, Over It birthed an RIAA Gold single in “Come Thru” with Usher and a platinum single with her lead record, “Playing Games.” Over It remained a dominant force on the Billboard 200, spending 38 weeks in the top 40 and 40 weeks in the top 50, solidifying her torrid run as R&B’s most elite vocalist.

She has remained as one of the icons of my life. She was one of the bravest humans out there and her vulnerability and honesty in her art still gives me goose bumps like it did the first time. 

It was truly an honour to sing with Renée. Nobody could have played Judy as well as Renée, and it is a career highlight for me to be singing with her, and in some small way, with Judy. I hope everyone loves the film as much as I did.” ​

The track coincides with the release of the highly-anticipated feature film in which Zellweger stars as Judy Garland, set for U.S. release on September 27.

Set for global release on September 27, JUDY the album marks 50 years since Judy Garland’s premature death in 1969, and 80 years since she shot to teenage stardom in The Wizard of Oz in 1939.

Local Natives Concert Review

On Saturday night, a five-piece-indie-rock band, Local Natives brought the energy to the Palladium with their symphonic tones, unique instrumentals, and airy soft lyrics. The LA native band played multiple songs throughout the night from their new album Violet Streets. This album explores adulthood, love, and friendships.

The band opened the show with a piece called “Vogue” from their album Violet Streets. The band then quickly livened up the audience by singing one of their older songs, “Sun Hands” in which lead singer, Taylor Rice jumped into the sea of screaming fans to crowd surf. 

The fans continued screaming throughout the show, especially once the band played the song, “Fountains of Youth”, which was a song released in November of 2016, right before the elections took place. 

The group finished their set with the song “When Am I Gonna Lose You”, which lead singer, Rice, explained was an ode to love. As the LA native boy band announced their last song, the crowd was in tears. The phrase “encore” could be heard from miles away. The band came back on to perform a few more songs until they had to say their last goodbye.

Complete with stunning light shows, seamless transitions, and phenomenal vocals, the Local Natives seemed to impress the crowd.

Vérité Unveils New Single “Gone”

Singer, songwriter Vérité unveils Gone today, her first single in two years, NYLON. Co-written and produced by singer-songwriter Madi Diaz and Konrad Snyder, the song reintroduces the musician, capturing the devastating effects of something ending. Carried by haunting crescendos and is powerhouse vocals, the track sees the singer pleading for time to stand still for a little while longer before her world turns upside down.

BUY/STREAM GONE

Vérité said about the song, Gone is about the moment before an inevitable shift. It’s the feeling of sitting still, taking in your surroundings, and burying yourself in a final scene. It’s about accepting an action as simple as getting dressed can delineate an end. It’s about leaving something/someone you’ve known behind and how the massive swell of frenetic potential energy that is all encompassing in that moment becomes a tiny blip in retrospect. It’s about being done and moving on. The sentiment is simple, the reality—overwhelming.

Gone speaks to a larger theme Vérité will be focusing on with her sophomore album: capturing the nuance of being in a relationship that isn’t romanticized or idealized. The single is the first taste of a forthcoming album Vérité has coming down the pipeline.

Following the release of her 2017 LP Somewhere In Between, Vérité has become the definition of thriving in the new music industry as an independent artist. Since her project began, Vérité has garnered a 250M+ streams across all platforms with a 1.4+ monthly listeners. Her debut album has over 50M streams, while her cover of The 1975’s Somebody Else has been streamed 111M times.
