Broadside Release Music Video For “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.”

Broadside are currently on tour in the UK supporting Trash Boat but the guys just released a super cute video for their ukulele centered song “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.” from their latest album “Paradise.”

Frontman Ollie Baxxter directed the beachfront video and also shows that he’s a total romantic! When asked about the song, Ollie explained “This is a song for romantics. When you’re in love, you feel consumed in its warmth. I’m happy knowing that I’ve contributed to a very long list of love songs.”

Watch the video for “I Love You, I Love You. It’s Disgusting.”  below!

Artist To Watch: PRETTYMUCH

If you’re a long time Secret Fangirls reader, you know that we’re HUGE fans of classic boybands – y’know, they ones that harmonize and dance in sync!  From Backstreet to New Edition to NKOTB to Big Time Rush, dancing boybands are a staple in any pop music landscape.

Our latest Artist To Watch fills that dancing boyband void that’s been open since BTR went on a break.   PRETTYMUCH is the boyband that are quickly making a name for themselves despite only putting out music a few months ago!  PRETTYMUCH were assembled by Simon Cowell who knows a thing or two about creating a hit factory. PRETTYMUCH consists of Austin Porter (19, Charlotte, North Carolina) Brandon Arreaga (17, Corinth, Texas), Edwin Honoret (18, Bronx, New York), Nick Mara (19, Manalapan, New Jersey), and Zion Kuwonu (18, Ottawa, Canada) making them a true North American boyband!

After releasing their debut single “Would You Mind” on July 21st, the song skyrocketed to the top of the charts and has stayed on playlists throughout the Summer and we’re sure will continue to propel PRETTYMUCH into superstardom.  Watch the official video for “Would You Mind” below!

Even better, PRETTYMUCH just announced they’re hitting the road this Fall with Jack & Jack on the “FALL2017 Tour” throughout November.  Tickets go on sale Thursday, Sept 21st at 10AM local time.

Grab a copy of “Would You Mind” on iTunes or Amazon so you can sing along on tour!

This Week’s Tournament:
St. Petersburg Open – St. Petersburg, Russia
Moselle Open – Metz, France

France & Belgium Headed to Davis Cup Final
Team France made it back to the Davis Cup Final for the first time since 2014.  With the insane amount of talented French players, we think they are long overdue to hold the Davis Cup trophy!  Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, Lucas Pouille, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nico Mahut helped the team get the win in their semi-final against Serbia.  They’ll take on Belgium in the finals, who defeated Australia in a close and dramatic 5th rubber.  The 2017 Davis Cup Final will be held in November in Lille.  Allez!

Laver Cup Kicks Off on Friday
The inaugural Laver Cup starts this Friday, September 22nd from Prague.  The 3 day event will see Team World taking on Team Europe in a new team format, led by captains John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg.   There will be 3 singles matches and 2 doubles match per day of competition.  All sets will be the best out of 3 sets, with the 3rd set being decided as a 10 point tiebreaker if sets are split.    The matches are weighted by day, with Sunday’s matches counting the most toward the overall team score.   We’ll definitely be tuning in to see how this plays out and to see if Rafa & Federer will team up for doubles!   They also unveiled an all-black tennis court for the occasion because #aesthetic.

Team World: Sam Querrey, John Isner, Nick Kyrgios, Jack Sock, Juan Martin del Potro* and Denis Shapovalov.  *Del Potro was replaced by Frances Tiafoe.

Team Europe: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Dominic Thiem, Sascha Zverev, Tomas Berdych, and Marin Cilic.

This new team competition hopes to become an annual event, with the 2018 Laver Cup to be held somewhere in the United States. Laver Cup will air in the US on Tennis Channel.


ATP #NextGen Finals Unveil New Innovations

Another new event on the tennis calendar is the ATP #NextGen Finals.  Like the ATP World Tour Finals, the #NextGen Finals invite the top 8 players under 21, based on their points accumulated throughout the year.   Sascha Zverev is currently holding the top spot in the race to Milan, followed by Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov.   The event will unveil a few new “innovations” to the traditional tennis tournament.  The latest is that there will be no linesmen on the court – all lines will be called electronically using hawkeye.

This adds to the previously announced changes of having short 1st to 4 game sets, shorter warm ups, a shot clock to enforce time between serves, playing let serves, a limit on medical time outs, and player coaching.  While we’re excited to see the future #NextGen of men’s tennis at the event, let’s hope this isn’t a preview of the #NextGen of tennis tournament rules that take away from the game itself.
