DAYTIME TV – Return With Bittersweet Single: “Side By Side” || New album out 25 Feb
The final track to be lifted from ‘Nothing’s On But Everyone’s Watching’ ahead of its release; it’s a beatific, if bittersweet anthem to lost loves.
A tale of two lovers heading in two very different directions, “Side By Side” is a song of acceptance and redemption, chemistry and compassion, fate and those “foreign feelings” that only make sense when it’s already too late.
Sampling the classic “Am I Wrong” by Nico & Vinz, Adzmilli’s emotive vocal melodies and hard-hitting rap lyricism are front and centre, backed by euphoric piano chords and sharp, deconstructed drums.
Already sparking the attention of his TikTok fanbase, the unreleased track has amassed over 250K likes, even sparking the attention and demand for new music from superstars such as Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood.

TikTok star Addison Grace shares “I Wanna Be A Boy” and finds home in their body through songwriting
Salt Lake City-based musician and TikTok star, Addison Grace, announces the release of “I Wanna Be A Boy,” a fan-favorite song that’s now getting a proper single release. The act of writing this song led Addison Grace to discover their pronouns – he/they – and come home to themselves in a way that provided freedom, comfort and genuine love. As he sings “I guess I wanna be a boy,” the realization that they are a boy overcomes his heart and powerfully makes the heartfelt message impossible to ignore.
Blasting away the cobwebs, the trio deliver an instant hit of retro-shaded, riff-rollicking Glam Rock for the good-times. Landing like the Black Sabbath / T.Rex collaboration that never happened, Mexican Dogs resurrect the rock’n’roll spirits of yesteryear and breathe new life into the sounds that defined their legacies.
