Austin Mahone & The Vamps Summer Tour Stops at the Izod Center

We were lucky to catch The Vamps at their first headlining show ever back at The Grammercy Theatre in NYC in February, and at their MTV Artist to Watch show earlier this summer.  So it was amazing to see how far they’ve come in such a short time, and to see them play in an arena setting. (And up next: a stadium!)   The Vamps played all of their singles, as well as their fun covers of Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets” and “Cecilia.”  We loved seeing all of the support The Vamps had in the arena – nearly everyone was singing and dancing along during their set.  Impressive for a band that’s relatively new to the US, but they’ve  had great success here so far.  Their “Somebody To You” EP was released earlier this month and debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard.  Pickup a copy on iTunes now!

 

The Vamps Setlist
1. “Wild Heart”
2. “Last Night”
3. “Trumpets”
4. “Somebody To You”
5. “Can We Dance?”
6. “Cecilia”

IMG_2695Austin, Austin, Austin.  What can we say?  He just gets better and better each time we see him.  His dance moves are so smooth and flawless, and the choreography is always on point.   We love how he interacts with his dancers, another reason why we call him the “one man boyband.”  We imagine this is what it would have been like to see a 90s boyband back in the day.  And we thank him for that.  The concert was a non-stop dance party, for us anyway.  (Yes that was us doing the choreography to “Banga Banga,” “Shawty Shawty,” and “What About Love.”)

Of course Austin is more than just 90s-era slow breakdowns and perfect slow leans that would make any *NSYNC fan cry.  He can sing, too.  And play the guitar, which he showcased in an acoustic set that included covers of George Strait’s “Check Yes Or No” and John Legend’s “All Of Me.”   Too add to our boyband nostalgia, Austin put on a pair of ripped jeans that would have made Donnie Wahlberg proud.  Our only complaint?  We miss those leather tanktops Austin usually breaks out for tour…

 

 

There are still a few dates left on the tour, check out all of the dates here!   Be sure to pickup a copy of “The Secret” EP so you can sing along during the show!  Our personal favorites are “Secret” and “Next To You.”

Austin Mahone “The Secret” EP Is Out Now!

When we first heard Austin Mahone’s “Say Something” and
“Say You’re Just A Friend”, we instantly loved his classic pop sound (We’ve never been happier that we actually clicked on an Amazon music suggestion.)  But it was his hit single from last summer, “What About Love,” with its 90s sound and the video’s sweet choreography, that earned him the nickname “the one man boy band.”

Austin Mahone succeeds where others have yet to venture – filling the 90s boy band void in our hearts! (We’re talking real, dancing boy bands)!  His debut EP, “The Secret,” out this week, draws inspiration from and gives more than a few nods to 90s boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.  Songs like “Secret”, “Next To You”, and “Til I Find You” all have those classic throwback elements from the blaring bass in the chorus to the breakdowns that are just begging for a slow lean and pop, *NSYNC style.  If you have Backstreet Boys’ “The Call” stuck in your head after hearing Austin’s EP, we did too.  The (kind of) title track, “Secret” shows off the flashy bass line and synths that sound like an early Backstreet/*NSYNC track that never made the album cut – like that weird *NSYNC song that only got released in Germany.

Austin’s slow jams whole-heartedly channel the likes of 98 Degrees and O-Town (who are reuniting by the way).  While every album needs a good love song,  some of these might fall short of a 98 Degrees  “Because Of You”.  Those are big shoes to fill but Mahone took a chance and reached for it, and we have to give him major brownie points for trying!

Watch Austin Mahone perform “Shadow” live on the Today Show!

Grab your copy of Austin Mahone’s “The Secret” on iTunes or Amazon now!  Be sure to catch Ausin Mahone this summer on tour with The Vamps!  Get all the details here!

The Friday Five: Memorial Day Playlist

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  We’re sure many of you (including us) are traveling for the long weekend, so here is our playlist of the songs we plan to drive around blasting to celebrate the official start of summer.

1.  Austin Mahone – “Next To You”
Austin just released this track from his debut album “The Secret,” out next week!  And we’ve been listening to it nonstop. (Literally like 10 times in a row).   He’s said that his album was influenced by the boy bands of the 90s, and it’s evident in this track.  We can’t wait to see what moves Austin the one-man boy band has planned for this one!

2. Dan + Shay – “Sway”
We heard this unreleased track at the Dan + Shay + You acoustic session, and found ourselves instantly swaying and singing along.   Dan and Shay said this song, which they played here for the first time ever, would likely be on their next album.  Lucky for you (and us) we caught it on video!

3.  The Vamps – “Somebody To You”
As soon as we heard this song, we had a feeling it would be The Vamps’ next single.  And we were right!  What we weren’t expecting is for Demi Lovato to be featured on the track.  They’ve teamed up for what’s sure to be a mega-hit for the British band.  Hopefully all the radio play this song is getting will lead to the long awaited US release date for The Vamps album!

4. Hunter Hayes – “Tattoo”
We cannot say enough good things about Hunter Hayes.  Not only is he extremely talented (he can play over 30 instruments) he’s also kind and humble.  We love this track off of his new album, “Storyline,” which is likely to be the second single off the album.  This song will stick with you,  even the first time you hear it…just like a tattoo!

5. AJR – “After Hours”
Their first single “I’m Ready,” is on track to be a big hit this summer, but we love all of AJR’s songs, especially this track off of their “I’m Ready EP.”  It’s fun, catchy, and has a horn section.  We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: AJR’s unique sound just makes us excited about music.  We can’t wait for their debut album due out later this summer!

 

Austin Mahone Premieres “Next To You,” From Debut Album “The Secret!”

It feels like we’ve taken forever to get here, but we are finally less than ONE WEEK away from the release of Austin Mahone’s debut album, “The Secret!”

Austin just unveiled another track off the album called “Next To You,” and it’s AMAZING.  It has the 90s boy band sound that Austin the one man boy band has been channeling, but with a modern edge.  We cannot wait to see him perform this one live. (P.S. please play it next weekend at BLI Summer Jam!)

The track almost sounds like someone had written it for *NSYNC back in the day, dusted it off, and updated for Austin.  Listen closely – can’t you just picture that classic *NSYNC lean and drop in the choreography?

You can pre-order “The Secret” on iTunes now and get an instant download of “MMM Yeah,” “Till I Find You,” and “All I Ever Need!”  The full album, including “Next To You,” will be released on Tuesday, May 27th!

Tune into the Today Show on Monday, May 26th to see Austin perform live!  (Or if you’re in NYC, get to Rockefeller Center by 6AM and see him in person!)
