Do I need to marry into this family to join the band? If so, I’m okay with that. Lucy and Thom Southern are the brother-sister duo that make this incredible Belfast-born, Liverpool-based bluesy, rock’n’roll powerhouse.
Southern released another electric single “Where I Want To Be” due out August 18th! The track has the brother-sister vocal harmonies you know and love with seductive, body-moving instrumentals, and lyrics to sing at the top of your lungs. Southern have stayed true to releasing singles to soundtrack your summer and “Where I Want To Be” is a great addition. To buy Southern’s self-titled EP click here. Follow Southern on Facebook, Twitter and Songkick for tour dates.

I’m back from a road trip from Philly to Coachella and 4 glorious, ridiculous, absolutely incredible days in California. After two hours of sleep and a day working, I could not be more pumped to deliver you a dark, sultry, addictive new track from British dreamboat Ben Khan for tonight’s late night listen.
I’ve had “Drive (Part 1)” on repeat all day and definitely added it to the Makeout Music Playlist for your hearing pleasure. The track is from Ben Khan’s upcoming 1992 EP due out May 5th which you can pre-order now here! I’m already obsessed with the EP and can’t wait to hear more new music and am looking forward to his full length album. His music is perfect for getting down in a live setting and I’m also hoping he heads over to the States to grace us all with those knee-weakening tunes in concert.
