Australia is on a hot streak with exports and their latest, The Faim, are bringing their brand of pop rock with a side of on stage charisma that could fill an arena. We caught them at the Gramercy Theatre on their tour opening for Andy Black, which wraps up this week in Virginia Beach.
Armed with an arsenal of new music and enough energy to power Manhattan, The Faim are here and they will not be ignored. Frontman Josh Raven commanded the stage with swagger and poise, drawing the crowd in from the start, even walking off the stage and connecting directly with the crowd in the middle of the pit.
The Faim, singer Josh, guitarist Sam Tye, bassist/keyboardist Stephen Beerkens, and drummer Linden Marissen felt more like the headliner than an opener but we bet they’ll be in that headliner slot sooner rather than later.
They will be back in Australia and Europe over the Summer. Check out all of their upcoming tour dates here! We’re hoping to see them back in the States soon!

Our most recent Artist To Watch, Sam Setton just dropped his brand new single “Santiago” about a girl he met down in Chile while he was on a trip to Chile to connect with his mother’s home country and culture.
“Santiago” is the most meaningful song I’ve ever written. Although modern sounding, “Santiago” is actually a song 6 years in the making. It’s the story of an ongoing relationship I have with a girl I met while visiting Santiago, Chile 6 years ago. I had initially gone to Santiago to see family and learn about the culture and country my mother grew up in, but I ended up starting a friendship and falling in love with this amazing woman.”
“Over the course of the next 4 years we exchanged drunken texts and voicemails, knowing we couldn’t be together because of logistics, but still showing our love for each other. When I finally sat down to write the song, I found some voice notes we had exchanged, and it really brought me back to that time with her. I was overcome with emotion and wrote the song in a few days. It is for this reason you hear that very voicemail sampled throughout the song.”

We have been long awaiting The Strypes return to America, since we last saw them in NYC in 2014 (!) Finally all of our “come to America!” tweets paid off, and The Strypes made their triumphant return to tour across the US this Spring, including a stop at Mercury Lounge in NYC. They are one of our favorite artists to see live – Ross, Pete, Evan, and Josh play a loud, fast, and energetic set that has the entire club singing and dancing along. The Strypes are also incredibly talented musicians.
We caught up with the band before their show and got the inside scoop on “The Surprisingly Dull Adventures of The Strypes,” found out what’s on their tour rider, and what’s been the best part of their American tour. Watch our interview and get to know more about The Strypes!
Alex Aiono slayed his sold out “Feel Like Tour” stop at Highline Ballroom in NYC! With his good friend and collaborator Trinidad Cardona kicking the show off, the duo brought the house down and made sure the crowd had the night of their lives.
Alex sang and danced his way through his high energy set with a huge smile on his face the entire time! The energetic crowd was singing along to every word. The show was one nonstop dance party from start to finish, and Alex did an awesome job keeping the crowd involved. He even brought up a special fan and serenaded her on his acoustic guitar halfway through the set.
Alex got his start by posting his now iconic mashups of songs on YouTube. He included his Drake/Nicky Jam “One Dance/Hasta el Ananecer” mashup as part of the set, and it was 🔥🔥🔥. We love that Alex has the moves, the vocals, and producing skills. He is the total package.
We’ve been hearing “Does It Feels Like Falling” absolutely everywhere lately, and judging by the reaction that Alex got during his sold out show, you’ll be seeing and hearing much more from him soon! We can’t wait to see him on his next tour, and we can see him selling out even bigger venues around the country.
