Jack Antonoffs solo project Bleachers has returned with more 80’s syth pop goodness. This time Antonoff has teamed up with singer Lorde for the single “Don’t Take the Money.
Lorde and Antonoff are no strangers to collaborating together. Lorde’s comeback singles ‘Green Light’ and ‘Liability,’ from her upcoming sophomore album Melodrama, were both co-written with Antonoff.
Although Lorde’s voice is not predominately heard(her wispery voice is used as background vocals). “Don’t Take the Money” is sure to be a hit. After the success of Bleachers first hit ‘I Wanna Get Better,” Antonoff has throughly embraced the synth pop style and it definitely works for him. His voice has that vintage 80s vibe. Combined with his mellow yet upbeat music, Bleachers newest single is a must listen.
The single is part of Bleachers’ yet-to-be-titled sophomore album, the follow-up to breakthrough Strange Desire.
The alternative rock band Bleeker have released an entertaining music video for the single”Where’s Your Money,” from their debut album “Erase You.” The video follows the same formula as any other music video. A beautiful woman robs a bank and ends up escaping with a guy, in this case the lead singer. Although the video may seem typical, I very much enjoy the song and the bands style. Their music has that fun rock and roll vibe mixed with a fun youthfulness that a lot of people can enjoy. Check it out

The fun rumbuctious style, was the first thing that caught my attention. “Turn It Up” by The Wrecks is catchy mix of nostalgia and youthfulness. The single’s chaotic style–filled with memorable guitar riffs and drum beats– is the perfect mix of indie rock and punk. The witty/catchy lyrics are unique and one of kind. The band ability to demonstrate their youthful through the fast paced single, definitely makes ‘Turn It Up’ a must listen.
The Wrecks hail from Los Angeles, Ca. The group consists of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Harrison Nussbaum (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums).
Love them or hate them, The Chainsmokers keep on releasing new music. The music duo have released an unexpected tone down single titled “The One.” I will admit I actually enjoy the single. It’s a very calming song, very different from their previous singles. My only problem is the constant need to have Andrew Taggart sing vocals. Taggart vocals are crying-worthy. He is not a professional singer and should stick to producing music instead. I prefer them collaborating with artists. That’s when the real magic happens.
The new single is part of the duo’s upcoming album titled Memories…Do Not Open, out April 7
While the world is still obsessed with Zayn’s latest hit with Taylor Swift, he is ready to dominate the charts with another collab. The singer has teamed up with PARTYNEXTDOOR for the tropical sounding R&B single ‘Still Got Time.’
