New “Old” Obsession: “Dead Love Song” by New Medicine

This past week, I decided to scroll through YouTube for a bit to try and discover some new music. But sometimes when you do this you come across music that has been out for a few years. I discovered the band New Medicine, who have been around since 2009 and have been making music for…

Sound Showdown: NEEDTOBREATHE

As a long-term fan of the band NEEDTOBREATHE, I discovered that they have two singles off of their most recent album that should go head-to-head in Sound Showdown. NEEDTOBREATHE is a rock band that makes amazing music and many (many) singles that deserve more praise. However, this week I am highlighting the songs “Hard Love”…

Hit or Hate: Harry Styles’ “Sign of the Times”

Harry Styles, the former 1D member we all know and love has come out with a new single. After Zayn Malik left One Direction a few years ago, everyone was expecting that the others would go and do other solo projects, but no one knew what to expect. I was (and still kind of am)…

My shameless concert addiction

The concert experience. Ask any die-hard music fan, concerts are one of the best things to witness and to be apart of, ever. The energy in the room is almost full of static from all of the souls sitting in their seats, and the speakers revving up for the impending concert. Typically, the night consists…

Band Watch: Who’s Molly?

This alternative band from the UK definitely has a lot to bring to the table, with their unique sound and rock vocals. Who’s Molly? is a band I’ve never heard of until last week and I can’t say that I was disappointed. Who’s Molly? is an alternative band based in the UK who have been…

Hit or Hate: Halsey’s “Now or Never”

“Now or Never” by Halsey was released this past week and there are mixed reactions. The song highlights a modern Romeo and Juliet kind of story, and ends on a cliff-hanger, which I really enjoyed. That’s one thing I truly enjoy about Halsey, is that she sticks with a story and carries it throughout her…

Sound Showdown: The Weeknd

The Weeknd has been around for a while now, and I have been a fan of his ever since his mixtape days. Though this past year, he released an album that really made me see how talented he actually is. Starboy had many hits on the charts, but a few did not have the recognition…

“Kerosene” keeps it unique

This past month, I have been finding random songs on my Spotify and this one I actually enjoyed. “Kerosene” by ARMORS caught my eye as soon as I heard the singers voice and the beat that carried it. I’ve actually been avoiding this band for a while, mainly because I didn’t think I would like…

Sound Showdown: All Time Low

The one band I’ve always heard about, but always sort of avoided, All Time Low. All Time Low has been one of the major bands in alternative for years, and I know from personal experience, that they are very much loved by their fans. Like I said before, I was never a huge fan of…

blackbear beats the basic

Although this artist doesn’t fit into my usual style, Blackbear is a hip-hop artist that deserves to be on the radio and to have his music heard. As a die-hard, alternative fan, I was pleasantly surprised when I heard his music back in the summer of 2016. That playlist itself had a huge mix of…

Sound Showdown: A Story Told

Once and a while, a band comes out with a song that just stays in your head for days. Typically, you OD on the song and move one, but in some very special cases, it’s possible that this song can stay on your playlist for months. In this case, I found a band called A…

Covers Can Be Cool Too

Most of the time, I’m that person who thinks covers aren’t great. I usually think that the original is “10x better” and then I don’t even give the cover a chance. This attitude has really ruined some of my impressions of songs and prevented me from listening to covers that could actually be great. Yesterday…
