The HUNNA Is Unstoppable

I’m talking to The Hunna in their tour bus after their show in Austin. They’re talking about getting some new tattoos on 6th street. At this point, I’ve seen them twice and each set showed off their power as a band. Even during their show in Houston where they faced some technical difficulties the band seemed unfazed and performed like pros. They’ve been climbing up the alternative charts and they originally caught my attention for their unfiltered, raw energy.

The Band CAMINO’s Electric Chemistry

It seems fitting that my first interview of 2017 takes place with a band from my city of Memphis, Tennessee. Within five minutes of speaking with Graham Rowell, Andrew Isbell, Spencer Stewart, and Jeffery Jordan, I knew this was going to be a unique interview. Even off-stage, these guys who form the group The Band CAMINO exhibit an exceptionally electric chemistry.

KONGOS were one of the first interviews I ever did. They were riding the high of their first headlining tour and “Come With Me Now” was being played literally everywhere. It’s been amazing to see how they took that single and turned it into thousands of fans and headlining tours. I sat down with Dylan and Jesse backstage at Gas Monkey Bar and Grill in Dallas to talk about their latest album Egomaniac.

I don’t think there’s a day that goes by where I don’t try to find new music. Last week I was listening to the “Today’s Top Hits” playlist on Spotify when I came across a song that made me realize how much I actually missed the summer. I enjoy crisp fall mornings and oversized sweaters as much as the next girl, but some days you just start to crave the warmer weather.

Astrid S Is The Queen Of Ethereal Pop

You’ve heard her single “Hurt So Good” all over the place, but Astrid S is quite reserved. That’s the first thing that strikes me about her, she’s so ethereal and her voice is so delicate. The Norwegian singer grew up in the small town of Berkåk, Norway with less than 1,000 people and long cold winters. She said the airport in Dallas is actually larger than her home town. “I’m in cowboy land all the way from Norway,” she said as she took the stage at Southside Ballroom.

Olivia O’Brien Is Bringing Songwriting Back

“I hate you I love you, I hate that I love you. Don’t want to, but I can’t put nobody else above you. I hate you I love you, I hate that I want you. You want her, you need her. And I’ll never be her.” As soon as I heard Olivia’s sweet voice singing all-too-relatable lyrics I’ve been so curious about her. She’s been singing and writing songs since she was a kid and was self-taught. She started posting songs on SoundCloud just for fun. When gnash reached out to her on Twitter after she covered one of his songs, her life was completely changed. She sent him a voice-note of the start of “i hate u, i love u” and he invited her to L.A. to record.
