Only Bricks release new single, “Ordinary”
L.A. based pop duo Only Bricks have returned with a sparkling new single, “Ordinary.” The track, which follows only a few months since the duo dropped their critically acclaimed debut EP “Foundation,” features a trademark hooky chorus, big enough to catch the attention of teen/pop destination, Teen Music Insider, who had the exclusive. “Ordinary” sees itself as another groove-laden, sugary dose of Summer pop that Only Bricks are quickly becoming recognized for.
A collaboration between Greg Aram and longtime friend Daddy Ramazani, the video subversively showcases motifs associated with outdated concepts of American masculinity, reinforcing the single’s call to disregard those toxic ideals in favor of emotional intelligence and maturity. His crew runs deep with models Christian Dion and Levi Berlin, NYC rappers Ro Ransom and Orrin and NYC skateboarder Chris Hell as they go from wearing bullet-proof vests to glitter eye shadow in the span of a quintessential summer day. The music video follows Greg’s spring single, “Lazy Bone”, and 2016’s Peach EP, which has garnered over 700k Soundcloud streams.

Cómo matar al odio con una canción
Era un día que no tenía muchas ganas de escribir. Uno suele pensar que las cosas van a llegar cuando uno quiere pero no siempre es así. Pudimos desarrollar primero una parte de la música, pero aún no tenía idea de lo que quería comunicar en este tema. Me puse a leer twitter y fue dentro de esa especie de impulsividad que genera el sentirse abrumada con tanta hostilidad junta, que en vez de publicar un comentario, quise soltar toda esa ira escribiendo para mí. Normalmente me detengo a analizar mis emociones, pero ese día estaba tan molesta, que lo que necesitaba era expresarme. Me sentía indignada con los modos que tenemos de manejar lo que se nos hace distinto. ¿Será el terror que le tenemos a nuestros miedos lo que hace que nos dejemos dominar tan fácilmente por el odio? Iban saliendo las palabras y yo intentaba, de algún modo, deshacerme de eso que nos destruye. Escribir me fue llevando a encontrar fuerza en mi propia vulnerabilidad. Lo que en ese momento era un desahogo, sin darme cuenta, se transformó en canción.

The Parents Television Council is calling on Viacom to rate the MTV VMAs for Mature Audiences only, and not for young viewers, if the network cannot guarantee that the broadcast will be free of graphic content. The PTC is basing this call on previous history of this routinely explicit awards show. The program will air on August 20, 2018.
“Every year, Viacom markets sexually-charged, pro-illegal drug, and profane content to children, and claims they ‘couldn’t have known’ to expect explicit content from its live broadcast. Viacom needs to take this standard excuse off the table right now, and rate the MTV VMAs for Mature Audiences – assuming from the outset that the content will be similarly graphic to what has routinely aired in recent years,” said PTC President Tim Winter.
“TV content ratings either mean something or they don’t. It’s laughable that Viacom continues to rate the VMAs TV-14 given the adult content that habitually airs on the show. At what point do you stop being surprised when the same thing happens every single year?
