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.
Interpol have been all the rage in my heart for years now. I recently became fixated on listening to their albums on repeat, so they could not have picked a better time to release new music into my life. “All The Rage Back Home” picks up right where Interpol left off, by delivering us mesmerizing instrumentals, infectious lyrics, and sing-a-long chorus’ that stay in your head for days. “All The Rage Back Home” is a strong first single from what should be an epic new album from the band. Interpol’s new album El Pintor is available now for pre-order here!
Interpol have announced a North American and European tour. Sadly, Philadelphia’s show at Union Transfer has sold out so hopefully you got your tickets! If not, Interpol just announced additional dates for NYC, London, and Dublin. For more information about when Interpol is coming to your town and to get your tickets click here.
I am loving this super smooth jam from London’s Memory Maze.
“Like A Mirage” has soft, seductive vocals and bass with instrumentals that will keep your hips moving and heart breaking. Memory Maze are due to release an album later this year!
You can keep track of when Memory Maze will tour in a city near you by following them here.
I’m going to come right out and say it. I love Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Their new album, Only Run, reminds us of their unique sound that only gets better with age.
Let’s face it, the guys are indie rock legends and they are playing at Johnny Brenda’s, one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and intimate clubs, TONIGHT. How lucky are we?! Of course the show is sold out, and I am anticipating dancing and getting sweaty on this magical summer night with all of you. The show starts at 9:30PM with Stagnant Pools opening, so don’t be late. Get there, pay attention, and stand post where you want to be for your glorious reunion with one of your favorite bands.
Your morning jam for today comes from Liverpool’s Circa Waves. Their new single “Young Chasers” is an absolute summer anthem. Perfect for blasting during all your summer road trips, this track from Circa Waves self-titled EP is out now! Circa Waves will be touring the UK in November and all tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday) at 9AM here. All shows are 14+ so make sure you buy tickets for everyone you know, including your little cousin/sister/brother/annoying neighbor.
I can’t wait for this weekend, mainly because it’s going to be jam packed with some of my favorite artists thanks to Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE!
This Sunday, Australian singer-songwriter, Vance Joy, will be taking the stage. He’s playing earlier in the day so make sure you get to The Lawn at 12:30PM sharp!
His addictive single “Riptide” is one that will stay in your head for days and you’ll want it to stay there. If you don’t get the chance to come to Firefly this weekend, make sure you catch him at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands festivals later this summer!
For a girl with an Alex Turner mouse pad at work, I have to say the struggle is real, but thank goddess I am not as psychotic as the crazed fan in the music video for “Snap Out Of It”. Many fans are commenting on the video that they think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part…Instead, I think it’s hilarious.
Arctic Monkey have always had a great sense of humor with everything they do and I think this video proves that. The star of this music video is, stereotypically, a gorgeous model. When she comes out of the pool in the beginning of the video, she could be anyone’s dream girl. Then, we see her true colors. She is a psycho stalker of the band and her obsession with them, particularly Alex Turner, is pretty terrifying. Paired with the whimsical music and lyrics of “Snap Out Of It,” it’s clear that the band is getting a message across that they don’t get anyone liking or obsessing over them that much. With her crying and some of the faces she makes in the video, I couldn’t help but laugh the entire way through. Again, I don’t think it’s an egotistical move on Alex Turner’s part or the band as a whole. I think it’s hysterical! Hopefully you do too.
Check out the video below and make sure you see Arctic Monkeys play Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE this Friday. I will be there, dancing harder than the model at the end of this video.
