Different Artists, New Music in the Same Week!

That’s right: there’s new music out – now!

At midnight today both Hey Violet and K.Flay released new music – and they’re fantastic!

Hey Violet released “Break My Heart” – a bop featuring their recently aquired sound. Listen here:

K.Flay released “High Enough”, a track off her upcoming album Everywhere is Somewhere. (Which is now available for preorder!) Judging from this release, the album is going to be great!

(Don’t forget to listen to K.Flays 2nd latest release “Black Wave“!)

WAIT! One more!

3 days ago, on May 7th, Elle King also released a new single titled “Wild Love.”

To me, it’s interesting to hear this track about love coming from Elle King. In my eyes, Elle King’s music has a bit of a reputation of being a bit hard-hearted, not one to sing about falling in love but rather to sing about how she isn’t someone who experiences romantic love often (this is demonstrated in songs from her last album, such as “I Told You I Was Mean“, “Ex’s and Oh’s“, and a bit in “America’s Sweetheart“.) This is a notable change, one that’s caught my interest; I’m eager to find out what she has in store!

Listen to “Wild Love” here:

Music Video for Believer – out now!

January 31st of this year Imagine Dragons released their single “Believer”!

Believer is a song with, in my eyes, multiple different meanings – a different one with each verse. Overall, “Believer” is about pain and how it can change your viewpoints and/or make you realize things you maybe haven’t given thought to before.

As of today, March 7th, the music video for “Believer” has been released!

The music video portrays Dan Reynolds combating Matt Eastin in a boxing match as a young boy scribbles in a notebook some ways away. What I see is that these three people are actually the same man – he, as a boy, draws on a notebook as the adult version of himself fights the older adult version. What’s even stranger is that these adult men seem to be computer generated, each with the symbol ‘ƎE’ tattooed on their chest.

New Music Video from The Maine!

That’s right, The Maine have released the music video for Bad Behavior!

On twitter Pat Kirch, drummer, said the video is for the 8123 family – and rightly so, as the music video displays several short clips from different crowds at different venues, 8123 fest being one of them.

Watch the music video for Bad Behavior below!

 

I, for one, haven’t been able to see The Maine live (yet), and this music video makes me want to see them so badly! Even more than I already did!

New ! Imagine Dragons ! Music !

Alright. It’s happened. I’m pumped. I love Imagine Dragons. So much. God.

For the past week Imagine Dragons have been posting on their Instagram and Twitter videos of unusual drawings with quiet background music. It was later discovered by fans that by putting together the initials of the objects of the same color form a word. There were 5 different videos uploaded, leading to the sentence “You made me a believer.” (Imagine Dragons fans are literally so smart I do not belong in this fandom)

What could this be? The title of a new single?  The next album? A lyric?

Well, we didn’t have to wait for long!

Today, January 31st 2017, Imagine Dragons released a new single “Believer” – It’s amazing!

imagine-dragons-believer

highly encourage you to listen to it! I personally really like the opening lyric ‘first things first imma say all the words inside my head im fired up and tired of the way things have been.’

What do you think of the song? Could this lead to their 3rd album? Let me know by leaving a comment!

Imagine Dragons Announcement Revealed!

A week ago, on November 21st, 2016, Imagine Dragons tweeted “one week” with the present emoji – referring to a previous tweet including the same emoji.

This sent me, my friend and many Imagine Dragons fans into a frenzy of excitement and questions. What could this gift be? Of course, many of us were speculating it to be a song – and now the present has been revealed!

Imagine Dragons announced (first via facebook, although they had gotten the Twitter crowed riled up first…) that they have a song, “Levitate”, in the new movie Passengers!

Passengers is an upcoming movie featuring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. The film is about people leaving earth and being in a coma-like state on a ship in space for 120 years. The plan was for these people to return to a new earth after the 120 year period. However, something happens and two of the people on the ship wake up 90 years too early. This is later found out to have not been a mistake.

You can hear a snip of “Levitate” in the Passengers trailer here.

Imagine Dragons new song “Levitate” will be out at midnight tonight! Are you planning on purchasing it? I am! Let me know what you think about Passengers and “Levitate” in the comments!

Music Video for Guys My Age

One of my first blog entries on Total Band Geek was about Hey Violet’s song “Guys My Age” that had just recently come out as I made my blog. And now – the music video has been released!

When I first watched the music video, I didn’t quite understand. I didn’t get how what was happening had any correlation to the song . . . until the end of the music video!

At the end of the music video lead singer Rena wakes up in her boyfriends car at a drive-in theater. (a drive-in theater is a bit retro… its an outdoor theater where the movie is projected onto a large screen, you park your car and watch the movie while in your car, kiddos.)  This leads me to believe that the rest of the music video before this clip is a dream she had about finding a boyfriend who’s more mature.

I did like the video, and I found it really aesthetically pleasing. I love the retro-type vibe that’s played throughout the music video – especially all the neon lights.

What did you think of the music video? Let me know in the comments!
