We’re In Stupid Love With Lady Gaga

stupid love
The Queen of Pop is back to take her throne with her new single ‘Stupid Love.’

The last the world heard a new Lady Gaga album was in 2016 when she released soft rock album, Joanne. In early 2017 we got the surprise drop of “The Cure” when she stepped in last minute to headline Coachella.

We then of course got shook by A Star is Born, where we dove off the deep end into the shallows because the soundtrack was that good. Even then, the music was curated for Ally rather than Gaga.

Since then…nothing. Three years of no Gaga and the fans have been begging and begging. There was a brief leak of the song back in January, but today we have the full song AND an (inter)stellar music video to go with it.

In the video we see Queen stop an alien war with a bop of a song. And if you ask us… seems legit. But that’s not what you should be fixated on. Notice at the end we see a still of a jacket that says “Kindness Punk” and then a screen that says “Chromatica.”

I think it’s safe to assume that her upcoming 6th studio album is called Chromatica. We’re also assuming that ‘Kindness Punk’ is an upcoming song.

Either way, we have one way to explain this new Gaga era…

Which Bird Of Prey Are You Most Like?

Which Bird

Which Bird of Prey are you? Huntress? Cass? Black Canary? Detective Rosie Perez? Or the infamous Harley Quinn?

Birds of Prey is finally here! This female ensemble gives us bad-ass bitch vibes. And honestly, it makes us want to have our own action sequence, you know, defeating the bad guys while pump up music is playing.

Now if you’re like us the idea of your own action sequence is cool… But also sounds really tiring and like a lot of work. So instead, we can tell you which Bird of Prey you are, and you can live vicariously through them.

Alt Bloom Brings Us Vibes With “West Coast”

Offering the perfect vibes for windows-down cruising through LA, Alt Bloom’s newest single “West Coast” definitely needs to be put on your Chill playlist this year! We got a chance to catch up with him between his traveling and music-making to learn what went into producing “West Coast.”

Hi Ethan! Thanks for talking to us today. Congrats on your new single by the way! “West Coast” is definitely in our vibes playlist here at MDRN. We have a question we want to ask first. We noticed you’re traveling quite a bit recently, where are you at this very moment?

Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to talk about my project! I have been traveling but currently am back in LA. For the last 10 days I’ve been doing live acoustic videos for each song on my EP across national parks in California. It was a blast of an experience and I can’t wait to share it!

Are the sights and places you’re visiting inspiring you to write new music? If so, how is it inspiring differently than other writing sessions?

I’d say stepping out of the studio always inspires new music. Living life is the only way to find new material and honest stories to write about. Being outdoors and out of LA keeps me in my own space artistically and makes me realize how vast the universe is which reminds me to keep on my path as we are all making it up on this little dot in space. 

Now on to your new single, which is honestly so amazing. What about the west coast inspired this song? A person, a moment, a sight? 

Thank you so much! Lyrics for me are always something that is bursting to be realized in my life and I just let them flow. “West Coast” is in that vein. But what really inspired the song was my roommate and producer Devin Damato. I was about to leave the house on a trip and heard him working on a track. The groove caught me and I started hearing the chorus melody and lyric right away. So I popped my head in his room and asked if I could write over what he was working on. About 20 minutes later the whole thing was written. I recorded a voice memo of it and when I got back from the trip, myself, Brian Phillips (producer), and Devin hopped in the studio and finished out the recording. 

Your “October Eyes” video and “Stay” lyric video have some amazing visuals and really catch the feel of the song? What can we expect for the “West Coast” music video? We hope there’s a lot of driving with the roof down.

Thank you! For the “West Coast” video we wanted to capture parts of LA that people who don’t live here don’t recognize but locals see all the time. LA river, Crenshaw, downtown, etc… It’s funny the original idea was to be driving in all the locations but the director, Erica Eng, knows that I am a big longboarder so she suggested I do that for the video instead to ground it to who I am. It ended up being a blast of a day just doing two things I love to do, sight see and skate. 


alt bloom west coast

If you had to put “West Coast” in a vibes playlist, what other songs would you include? Can be more of your own, as well as other artists? What would you call that playlist?

Biking” Frank Ocean, “Morning” Marc E Bassy, “Habit” Still Woozy, “Small Worlds” Mac Miller, “Make It Better” Anderson Paak. I’d call it PB and Jam.


What is your usual method of attack when writing music? Do you have a certain order you like to work in? 

I usually like to start with a palette of chord and groove. Whether it’s in my head or on a seed track. That helps me dive into a flow. Writing for me is a zen space. When I am in it I am in it 100%, committed to whatever the next few hours hold. It’s a ride every time. After that initial burst the song is either done or I spend the rest of the day or months putting the rest of the pieces together like a sudoku puzzle with a producer. 

Is there a specific line or lyric that you wrote that you are super proud of? Which one? 

In “West Coast” there’s a lyric, “Got a firework face, light up the whole place.” Not sure why I like that line, probably because I’ve only met a few people who can take out a room with a look and it reminds me of them when I sing it. 

If you don’t mind, we’d like to get a bit deep. What made you create Alt Bloom? We know that it’s your stage name. Is Alt Bloom a completely different version of you? Or is he an extension of yourself?

Alt Bloom was a new step for me. I had so many things associated with my name that I wanted a fresh start. And I didn’t want the pressure of anything I had done before to fall on this new place for me. I wanted to feel free to take this music wherever my heart wanted to, folk, hiphop, pop, rnb, rock, and by switching my name it gave me that space to let go of whatever had been holding me back from doing just that. 


We’re dying to know, do you have an album or EP in the works?

Right now there is so much music I have in the stash but the first step for me is an EP which we do have done and are planning to release a track at a time. Just waiting on those mixes ! An album for sure in the future, but for now I want to keep releases to EP’s so I can keep releasing at a quick pace. 


Since you love traveling so much? Can we expect a tour soon?

As soon as I can get out I will! Right now the focus is building and making the music I will be touring on. I’m hoping to get out a bunch this year and am keeping my fingers crossed for the opportunity. I do love traveling and singing. Especially if I can find new nature spots to explore and climb. On top of that the band is gonna be a kick to play with! Good people. 

What is your take on the MDRN day fan and how important they are to the industry right now?

Fans are everything. Without fans there isn’t an industry. Everything great that happens in this world takes a lot of people. Every success is do to the fact that masses are involved. DaVinci wouldn’t be remembered if millions of people didn’t reflect on and save his work. Even NASA wouldn’t be able to explore the worlds beyond without tax dollars from the masses. Every success is more that of the people and less the person. Though a person can stimulate the people it is the people that make the music connection so special. 

What can Alt Bloom fans look forward to in 2020?

Lots of new music, lots of new visuals, lots of new places to explore, live shows and a presidential election.

Okay last question and it’s an important one… What do you call your fanbase? If you don’t have one yet, what would you like them to be called? (May we suggest Bloomers?)

Haha bloomers sounds a lot like boomers I’d have to be careful. We actually call ourselves tribe. Tribe means a lot to me because it’s a heavy part in human existence, finding your tribe. My base is about connecting with each other and I love to watch them slowly growing as this project begins. It’s only really been six months !

Thank you for talking with us, Ethan! MDRN Mag wishes you the best luck! We can’t wait for all the new music! If there’s any last things you’d like to tell the fans, please do!

Thank you so much for taking the time. I’d like to tell people to get outside anyway you can. Staring at the stars, some trees, and getting fresh air does so much more the soul than any other thing in this world. Get out tribe!

Take a look at the video for “West Coast” below!

Morbius Is Here And It Looks Fangtastic

morbius

Everyone needs to stop what they’re doing this instant and watch the Morbius trailer.

Morbius is the new Marvel film we can expect from the Sony Marvel Universe (which is not to be confused with the MCU… Which Spider-Man is in). It’s about a doctor that is dying and is trying to cure his rare blood disease… But instead infects himself with vampirism.

Jared Leto as a vampire?… Sign. Us. Up.

In the trailer there are many easter eggs leading back to Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man movies.

Do you see what we see? This puts us post Spider-Man: Far From Home after *SPOILER ALERT* Mysterio tells the world that Peter Parker is Spider-Man and makes him out to be a villain.

Also, like. Vulture is literally in the trailer. That is a direct tie in. So like if Sony could give us Tom Holland, Tom Hardy, and Jared Leto in a movie together? … And then bring them all in a MCU movie together, that’d be great.

As a Marvel stan myself, it’s my theory that Sony/Marvel are creating their rendition on the Sinister Six but only time will tell. Until then you can find us watching this trailer on repeat.

Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments down below or on Twitter!

Sabrina Brings Chills With A Musical Trailer For Pt 3

Sabrina

Ladies and gents, we’re headed back to Greendale with Sabrina. We’ve been dying to go back. And good for that, because by the looks of the trailer we’re headed straight to hell. After the shocking twist in the season two finale, we’ve been going crazy wondering what’s going to happen next.

From the trailer above, we can tell that we’ve barley (Nicholas) scratched the surface on the crazy stuff about to go down. In the song, Sabrina sings about saving her love (Nicholas) from the devil. And she’s willing to pay whatever price she has to pay.

Also seen in the trailer, we can see that there will be lots and lots of new spells to be cast and seances to be done… So our only question is this:

What spell can we use to make it January 24th already?
