Kristian Nairn (aka Hodor of Game of Thrones) new single “Evolve” {Out Now}

Kristian Nairn was holding down dancefloors across the UK as a well-established house producer and DJ, long before he was tending to the stables of the House Stark and holding very important doors on HBO’s acclaimed Game of Thrones. Just this year he’s released four tracks, with two having topped the Beatport charts in their respective categories and his decorated discography includes collaborations with Ferry Corsten and Alex Graham, as well as remixes of Freemasons and Madison Avenue.


“It’s an explosive rock anthem,” says vocalist Danny (Murillo) recounting the new track, and affirming the group’s ability to create arena-sized hits that blend a variety of genres into the recognizable Hollywood Undead sound. He continues, “Humans can find pleasure in trying to hurt you. When you take away that satisfaction and become immune to it, it’s empowering.”


“No Control” is the latest in a string of singles Carpenter has released since signing to Capitol Records. As Idolator observed, “The Justin Timberlake-channeling, R&B/pop song [‘Attitude’] caught everyone’s attention, and he built on that momentum with the slinky ‘Chase.’ The 20-year-old now showcases his versatility with ‘Next’…battling a nasty case of lovesickness over The Roommates’ mellow beats…[it] will strike a chord with anyone going through it.” BBC Radio 1 named “Attitude” as one of the Best New Pop tracks upon its release in April.
