Yellowcard Release Touching Farewell Video For “A Place We Set Afire”

Get those tissue ready. It’s time to say goodbye to Yellowcard. The band has released a heartfelt farwell music video for the single ‘A Place We Set Afire.’ The video features emotional footage of the band, interactions with fans and tear-jerking interviews with lead singer Ryan Key.

The single is off  Yellowcard’s self-titled final album, which released last September. According to the band’s twitter account, the song was inspired by and written for their fans.

The Chainsmokers Release New Single ‘The One’

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

Gorillaz Officially Announce New Album ‘HUMANZ’

That not all, this afternoon Damon Albarn will premiere two tracks from Humanz during an appearance on BBC Radio 1.

Review: Weezer Goes Pop with Single “Feels Like Summer”

Instead of celebrating the start of spring, Weezer is bring summer early with their new single “Feels Like Summer.” The single’s eccentric pop and synth production is an experimental delight. Fans might not like how it strays away from Weezer’s signature indie rock sound, but I think it’s quite enjoyable. Its catchy and still has those funky Weezer lyrics.

The single is assumed to be the lead single of The Black Album. The follow up album to last years,  White Album. Lead singer, Rivers Cuomo has previously stated that the album would be more gritty, tackling  “more mature topics” and be “less summer day and more winter night.” But with the realize of this single, its feels like that might not be 100% true.

 

 

New Music: Lorde Releases Second Single “Liability”

Follows last week’s single release, Lorde is back with a heartbreaking  piano ballad titled “Liability.” The single is off her upcoming album Melodrama, which now has a release date of June 16.

Review: Lorde’s second single is a complete departure from her first single. ‘Green Light’ felt like a celebration of her return. ‘Liability’s heartbreaking lyrics of love and insecurity, humanizes Lorde. Although some of the lyrics might sound a bit awkward, its different. The single emphasizes Lorde as a storyteller,  not a pop-star.
