Out Now: Indie singer-songwriter Izzy Mahoubi shares music video for “Hang Around”

Speaking on the new video Izzy shares, “My main hope with the Hang Around music video was that it would capture the heart behind the song. And I think we did just that. The video contains authentic scenes of my friends and I in the woods in an almost natural state. From finding a pumpkin near a tree stump, that my friend naturally put on her head, to discovering the video camera we were using as a prop actually worked and had film loaded, it was easy for us to sing a song about the summer and dance around in the leaves as if we belonged there.”

Biig Piig Drops Video for Atmospheric New Single “This Is What They Meant”


LAUREN RUTH WARD is single-handedly revitalizing the image of powerful women in rock’n’roll by unleashing a spree of viral hit singles and headlining a sold-out U.S. concert tour. With the release of “Mindseye” – the seductive, guitar-laced title track of her wildly anticipated EP of the same name – Ward is poised for brilliant new heights.


Produced by Rich Brian himself, “VIVID” layers a flute-laden loop above a throwback nineties-style R&B guitar lick, skittering 808s, and swooning strings. Brian and $NOT trade verses back and forth in a hypnotic volley, dissecting relationship ups and downs. It builds towards a biting send-off with the advice to, “Turn your frown around, nobody gives a fuck.” The accompanying visual brings “VIVID” to life as Rich Brian thwarts off his feelings at a golf course, swinging at frowning golf balls, hoping to absolve his worries with a hole-in-one shot.

I truly felt like I was on top of the world, but I knew I was going way too fast and would crash. ‘CRASH DESIRE’ goes into how the idea of going too fast is horrifying, but somehow still alluring and desirable. The song is my ode to UK garage and the dance scene that I always dreamt to be a part of.”

Arkells release surprise new single “Floating Like”

“‘Floating Like’ is about trying to free yourself of the allure and pull of material things and finding happiness in the simple wonders of life,” says frontman Max Kerman. It was written around a sample we cut up from The Impressions and their song ‘Seven Years.’ We added as many Motown soul tricks to the production with the goal of finding the joy and lightness of those classic tunes. It’s a special song for us, so we wanted to give it its own release and runway. Blink Twice is now complete.”
