My Brothers and I popped up on a Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify a while back and since then, I’ve been drawn to their smooth, coffeehouse pop sound. With their new EP set to release later this year, the group is starting to play several shows and I got to speak to vocalist David Wurgler about what’s next for the group now.
Sam Setton’s got the electric pop soundtrack you’ve been missing. “Wine” was based on a dark relationship, but paired with the upbeat music, it’s the perfect accompaniment when you’re alone in your apartment dancing with a glass of, well, wine. We talked to him about this single and what’s he’s got planned for this year.
We’re so obsessed with Jess Kent. Her songs are so catchy and she has so much attitude. She’s everything we want to be. We caught up with her about her new music and things to come.
“I think that everyone needs a space where they can express themselves properly, even if it’s not art, I think everyone needs that. And for some people that is art. For me, I write songs for myself, but I also recognize that sometimes I am able to articulate things that others can’t. And I remember when I couldn’t, and how difficult that was for me, and how certain songs and certain artists helped me learn how to do that. So that’s why I put music out. Because if someone else has all these feelings and they don’t know what to do with them then if I can help them articulate them then that’s good and that’s kind of what I am trying to do”
KOPPS is a fantastic band, and they’re fronted by the amazing Patricia Patron. She’s the kind of fiery front woman that we aspire to be in our minds. She’s also a licensed therapist which makes her even cooler. We talked to her about mental health, their new song “Hott” and working with Joywave.
If you’re on the Lolla high like most of us are, you’ve probably seen YUNGBLUD’s set and ridiculously energizing stage presence. I never thought to mix hip hop with punk rock, but whatever he’s doing, he’s doing it right. He’s an artist you’ll want to start getting connected to now because it’s not going to be long until he headlines his own arena shows. Also, his debut album is already out now so you’ve got to check it out.
We love Matt LeGrand. He’s got this incredible voice and his songs are just so catchy. His new song is an ode to the magical time of midnight. We talked to him about “12:00 AM” and what has been inspiring him lately.
Brandon Stansell is a breath of fresh air in country music. His love for classic stories of love and heartbreak stems from icons like Dolly and Shania, but his openness about his sexuality is what’s going to change the direction of the genre.
Youngblood has the energy that kind of sparks a room. From the moment we met, I knew she was going to be an artist I’d add to my playlist. Her music is pretty moody with an electric pulse…think Lana del Rey mixed with Nancy Sinatra. Seriously, whatever she’s doing just works. I got to see her in LA as she prepped for her EP dropping in just a few weeks.
Savvy and Mandy are two sisters taking over. They are some of the sweetest voices in country music and their song “Wildfire” is about powerful women that know what they want in life.
