Artist To Watch: boyband

GRAMMY-nominated producer, boyband, is making a splash with his debut 10-track project, “alone in a boyband” out today.

After producing for Young Thug, Gunna, and Lil Nas X on “Kick It,” which earned him a GRAMMY nomination, boyband has made a name for himself and the producer collective, Internet Money, but he isn’t stopping there.  “I’ve learned how to do every style, so I’m always just curating different vibes,” he says of his borderless approach to music. “You have to be versatile when producing for others, it’ll take you far.”

Written on a three day anime binge watching session, boyband wrote “Death Note” with Billy Martin of Good Charlotte.  Billy approached boyband’s collective Internet Money for help on a new project and boyband quickly responded via Twitter, “Do you know who you are? You’re a legend! Let’s make history.”

The genre-spanning project also features Mike Kinsella of American Football on “big face” which injects 90’s midwestern emo nostalgia into the project and blends the two genres seamlessly. With blue-collar work ethic and sheer willpower, boyband’s reputation in the LA music scene is on full display. The debut project is filled with sparkling pop hooks and plenty of hidden gems in the lyrics that will have you hitting replay before the song is even over.

Watch the Anime inspired video for “Death Note” below!

Silverstein Sell Out Webster Hall

Celebrating 20 years as a band is a milestone many dream of and even fewer achieve.  Canada’s own alt rockers Silverstein have been packing in the fans for two decades and hope to continue rocking for another 20 years!  They celebrated their 20 year anniversary and the release of their new album, “A Beautiful Place To Drown” with a sold out show at Webster Hall in NYC.

Ottawa bred and road tested, Silverstein laid everything they have on stage playing three sets – one set full of new and classic hits, one acoustic set, and finally a full album set for “Discovering The Waterfront.”  Feeding off the high octane energy of the sold out NYC crowd, the band gave the fans a greatest hits run including new favorites like “Burn It Down” and “Infinite” from their new record, “A Beautiful Place To Drown,” as well as classic favorites like “The Afterglow,” “A Great Fire,” and a medley of their record “This Is How The Wind Shifts.”

As he strummed the opening chords of “Massachusetts,” for the stripped down second set of the night, lead singer Shane Told exclaimed to the NYC audience, “Boston thought that was the end of the show and left so thanks for sticking around!”

Silverstein hit all of the bittersweet spots with tracks like “Toronto,” “Still Dreaming,” and the emotional “Aquamarine.”  We definitely shed a few tears when he spoke about how difficult it was coming back to certain tracks like “Aquamarine” that was written at one of the darkest points in his life.

Picking it back up, they dove right into the reason we gathered together on Friday night, the full album play through of their sophomore record, “Discovering The Waterfront.” You could tell what the album meant to everyone in the room and the sing along reached a fever pitch during “My Heroine” with the crowd drowning out the band at one point.

The energy in the room was off the charts, the band and crowd both feeding off each other was such a treat.  Silverstein are proving that you can have a decades spanning career and still churn out new hits and old favorites in the same show without alienating anyone.

Silverstein’s 9th studio record, “A Beautiful Place To Drown” is now available on streaming platforms worldwide and are in the midst of an extensive 20 year anniversary tour with I The Mighty, and Four Year Strong.  Grab your tickets to the remaining tour dates HERE while they last!

Lauv Releases New Single,”Mean It” ft. LANY

Lauv and LANY are two rising artists to watch in the new year and they just teamed up on a brand new single, “Mean It.”  Lauv is gearing up to drop his 21-track debut album ~how i’m feeling~ on March 6th, 2020 and LANY are back in the studio writing and recording their third studio album set for a Summer 2020 release date.

Lauv said on the collaboration, “I started ‘Mean It’ from the perspective of what I thought somebody might want to say to me (I’m not perfect and I’ll be the first to admit it). Paul and I had been talking about working together for a long time, then one day I texted him the idea for the song and it just clicked. So we all got in the studio and had a grand ol’ time finishing the record. I’ve been a fan of LANY for a long time, and I think it’s a perfect blend of our two sounds, so I’m super stoked and honored to have this song together.”

Listen to “Mean It” on Spotify now!

Pre-order a copy of Lauv’s debut album ~how i’m feeling~ HERE that includes special pre-order bundles with stickers, exclusive merch, vinyls, and more. Don’t forget to pre-save the record on Spotify and Apple Music!
