No Rome Releases Visuals for “5 Ways to Bleach Your Hair”

No Rome recently dropped the visuals for “5 Ways to Bleach Your Hair,” the first track of his EP, Crying in the Prettiest Places. The video is the second released from the EP so far and it definitely doesn’t disappoint.

Going full emo mode, you will get major 2000s vibes from the way it’s filmed to the track itself. The blueish, grainy visuals feature No Rome in an empty swimming pool jamming on his guitar. If you look close enough you might even spot a familiar face, Matty Healy from The 1975 made an appearance on the drums, as he also plays the instrument on the studio track.

Mimicking the lyrics of the song, it feels like we’re taken straight into a dark jam session in his head. “I’m just a lonely boy / I don’t know what’s happening / I’m just a lonely boy, I’ve been taking drugs again.”

This video was the complete opposite from the visuals for “Pink,” and we are impatiently waiting to see what masterpiece No Rome puts out next!

Yungblud “Parents” Video and New Tour

YUNGBLUD-Parents-Music-Video-Still

The English enigma, YUNGBLUD, delivers with a statement in Parents music video

YUNGBLUD scavenger hunt around the world

Yesterday was a big day for the fans of up-and-coming musician Dominic Harrison better known as YUNGBLUD released the highly anticipated music video for his song “Parents”, after leaving hints and surprises in a scavenger hunt around the world for fans to find.

With such blunt and controversial lyrics it’s no surprise that the music video delivered exactly that. From dancing on his own grave to homophobia to intercourse between a preacher and a teacher, he shows exactly what the lyrics tell you. No visual metaphor needed.

The video gives us a very early pop punk vibe with its fast movement, teen angst, satirical characters, and live performance. Think Blink-182, Sum 41 and Slim Shady all rolled together in a single video.

YUNGBLUD – Parents

Harrison is definitely this generation’s voice of the voiceless. He is known for speaking his mind on topics such as mental health, gun control and politics. In big letters in the video you can read

guns kill kids. 
but can the kids kill the guns?

It’s an obvious fact that this young star will use the platform he is given to speak his opinions in hopes to encourage others to speak theirs.

While waiting for the official video, YUNGBLUD went to the YouTube chatroom and talked to his fans awaiting the release. Here is where he made the announcement of a North American Tour this fall called The Twisted Tales of the Ritalin Club which shares the same name as his upcoming Graphic-Novel in collaboration with Z2 Comics.

You can buy tickets to see YUNGBLUD here.

Wish You Never Met WhoHurtYou? We Don’t.

WhoHurtYou

WhoHurtYou is a ‘dark pop project’ under Fueled by Ramen. Jack Barakat, guitarist for All Time Low, and Kevin Fisher, songwriter, began this project as a way to cope with the harsh reality of a broken heart. Barakat, known as the happy-go-lucky goofball of the band, uses this project to speak out for the first time about his struggles with mental health. He admits that a lot of the way he acts on stage and online is to cover up how much he was really struggling through such a difficult time. Realizing that they were both going through a similar hard time, Barakat and Fisher headed to the studio to start writing and to put their stories out there for anyone else who may be struggling as well.

The day I wrote this, I hated that I missed them.” –Jack Barakat

Released on July 21, 2019, “Wish We Never Met” is the first single that WhoHurtYou dropped. From the very first song, it is easy to tell that this duo won’t be holding back any emotions with their music. This song expresses the anger that so many people feel when going through a breakup. “Wish We Never Met” takes you through the anger that’s felt when you have to realize that you’ve fallen for the wrong person, that someone you trust could cause so much pain, and that no matter how angry you are at this person, you still miss them.

The song starts off with that all-too-familiar feeling of wishing the person who left you was still by your side and hoping that maybe they’re feeling just as down as you are. It goes on to say that even though that person is no longer in your life, they still manage to mess with your head and “fuck you up.” The song ends with wishing that you didn’t miss this person and that it feels like the only solution to getting over the hurt and pain is if you had never even met them – a feeling that we have all been through before.

Although the lyrics to “Wish We Never Met” are filled with anger and pain, the music itself is, to its core, a pop jam. Instantly making you bop your head along to the catchy and upbeat music this song will have you off your seat and singing along instead of crying in the shower like so many breakup songs.

Details on Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album ‘No.6 Collaborations’

Unlike his last three albums (Plus, Multiply, and Divide), Ed Sheeran’s fourth album title (surprisingly) has anything to do with math! (After all, it’s still summer!). Sheeran plans to release his fourth project July 12, titled No. 6 Collaborations. Although there isn’t a No.4, 3, 2, or 1, he released a No. 5 Collaborations project back in 2011; featuring Devlin, Wiley, P Money, JME, Mikill Pane, Ghetts, Random Impulse, Dot Rotten, and Sway & Wretch.

The track list and features for No. 6 have just dropped. The new album will be made up of 15 tracks, and feature multiple artists such as Cardi B, Khalid, Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Eminem, H.E.R, Travis Scott, Ella Mai, and more.

So far, two singles have been released, both featured on the album: “Cross Me” featuring Chance the Rapper and “I Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber. According to iTunes, “I Don’t Care” currently sits at number 4 on the charts, Number 3 on the pop charts, and number 5 on the Billboard Top 100. “Cross Me” sits at number 12 on the pop charts, and number 49 on the Billboard Top 100.

With the current charting of these two songs, the known talents of Sheeran and the artists that are featured, No. 6 Collaborations is guaranteed to take over both the iTunes and Billboard charts – and we’ll be sure to be the first to give a fire review!
