K-Pop Group, ONEUS, Release New Album
K-Pop group, ONEUS, have released their highly anticipated 7th Mini Album, [TRICKSTER]. An album about facing the unknown and taking on life’s challenges without hesitation, [TRICKSTER] refers to those who reverse the ending of their story with just one hand. Hwanwoong contributed to the choreography for “Bring It On,” a track that melts both Drill and Trap genres on a strong brass line. [TRICKSTER] as a whole brings the wishes of everyone in the unkind world to the surface; Good and Evil, Happy Ending and Sad Ending. At the dangerous borderline between the dichotomous basic system and transformation, [TRICKSTER] can shake the system and overturn the ending to get the desired result at any time.
Check out Peter McPoland’s new music video for “Mary Anne” from his new Slow Down EP!
At just 21-years-old, singer/songwriter/producer Peter McPoland has already made a name for himself creating the kind of finespun folk-pop that simultaneously feels both beautifully lived-in and undeniably original. The Texas-bred artist has an incredible gift for capturing the most nuanced emotional experiences and bringing that expression to life in vivid, captivating detail. Based in Brooklyn, Peter was born in Vermont but grew up outside of Houston and discovered his deep love of music as a child, releasing his first song while in in high school. In 2020, he decided to move to Manhattan to push forward with a music career. Holed up in his great-uncle’s apartment on the Upper West Side, he started experimenting with production and soon came up with the reverb-drenched and dreamlike track “Romeo & Juliet,” which quickly became a major hit on TikTok and ultimately paved the way for Peter’s signing to Columbia Records in early 2021.
