Jill Andrews’ “Gimme The Beat Back” debuts today

“Gimme The Beat Back” is the latest track unveiled from Andrews’ anticipated new album, Thirties, which will be released March 27 via Vulture Vulture/Tone Tree Music. Her first solo release in nearly five years and the first project she has co-produced, Thirties is a deeply personal record that chronicles the beauty and brutality of Andrews’ past decade. Through exploring the isolation and joys of motherhood, the loss of a partner and the path to standing up for yourself, Andrews uses the album to give a voice to the unsung moments and stories of women.


Already co-signed by Grimes, Charli XCX and other pop titans, the world is making room for a new voice that you soon won’t be able to ignore: her name is Slayyyter. Clearly influenced by the internet and meme culture at large, and with social media posts that harken back to the glory days of MySpace and AIM, Slayyyter’s music also draws inspiration from early 2000’s reality show personalities like Heidi Montag and Courtney Stodden. The 22-year old artist hails from St. Louis, but her cult following is spreading around the world like a wildfire.
