SINGLE REVIEW: One Direction – “Drag Me Down”

Artist: One Direction
Track: “Drag Me Down”
Album: TBA

A year after “Steal My Girl” ushered in an era where the members of One Direction were focused on songs built for stadiums, “Drag Me Down” has arrived to flip the script once more.

It’s all about the energy. From the moment “Drag Me Down” kicks in there is a thick bass line guiding the entire voyage that demands your legs prepare to dance. It’s a ticking time bomb of pop sensibilities that quickly builds from the infectious first verse to a pre-chorus that pulls you in to the …

The Wonder Years Stream New Single, “Cigarettes & Saints”

The Wonder Years have given us a second taste of their forthcoming album, No Closer To Heaven, in the form of a brand new single titled “Cigarettes & Saints.”

The Pennsylvania outfit’s latest offering finds Dan Campbell and company pushing their craft to wondrous new heights, both lyrically and instrumentally. While TWY have always stood head and shoulders above their peers thanks to their airtight composition, the band’s newest track is without a doubt some of their most concrete work to date, which is pretty wild considering their near-flawless back catalogue. Listen in below, and let us know what …

Matthew Morgan Shares Live Video For New Song, “All Those Tears”

We recently had the chance to speak with singer-songwriter Matthew Morgan about everything from his newest EP, Empathy For Inanimate Objects, to the personal and relatable nature of his delivery. “I think it’s a culmination of years of living, successes and failures; over time your exterior ego gets broken down and it becomes more important to just be true to yourself,” Morgan explained.

One of his newest tracks, which he’s been playing live, titled “All Those Tears,” very much continues that trend. Morgan recently shared a live video from Raw Foot Productions for the song that he and his …

UTG PREMIERE: Thundercloud Kid – “Bad News for Blue Eyes”

It’s never too late in the day for a great music premiere, right?

We have been outspoken about our love for the upstate New York music scene for as long as I can remember at this point. It seems like every band that comes out of Buffalo or the surrounding area not only has something to say, but a unique way to say it as well, and that is again the case with newcomers Thundercloud Kid. Their sound is one part pop punk, two parts indie, and just a bit old school rock and roll. Sound good? Just wait …

UTG PREMIERE: The Hollywood Kills – “Señorita”

Coming straight off the band’s newest EP, Episode IV, is The Hollywood Kills‘ latest single, “Señorita.” The track is a clever and fun number—capturing a burlesque-infused sounbd of swing rock ‘n’ roll not unlike that heard in the early numbers of The Dear Hunter’s Act II.

It’s a totally sassy song, the chorus is vibrant and the entire track will make you want to swing your hips. If good bourbon had a soundtrack, this song would be one of the premier numbers.

The band had this to say about the new track:

“This song is an ode

The Weeknd Releases Music Video For “Can’t Feel My Face”

Abel Tesfaye, more famously known as The Weeknd, has had a huge year thus far.

With three radio hits sitting nicely on top of the charts and a sophomore album on the way this summer, the Canadian R&B recording artist has come a long way ever since he opened up for Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience tour in 2013, and especially since his first widely available mixtape in 2011.

Today he has released an AppleMusic exclusive video for his newest hit, “Can’t Feel My Face.” The video features Tesfaye literally unable to feel his face shortly after catching …

Drake Buries Meek Mill With “Back To Back” Freestyle

Several days have passed since Drake responded to Meek Mill‘s claims of hiring ghostwriters with his chill, yet vicious “Charged Up” freestyle. You may have thought Meek would have responded by now, and if that’s the case you are not alone. Everyone was expecting the Maybach Music Group member to retaliate to Drake’s line, which he himself called “Baby lotion soft” over Twitter, but here we are at 9:30 AM on Wednesday and Meek remains silent.

Drake, on the other hand, has something more to say.

Raising the bar to a height I’m not sure Meek Mill has ever …

UTG PREMIERE: Look Out Love – “Never Know”

Pop rock’s never sounded so luscious.

That’s the first thing that comes to mind when hearing Look Out Love’s new single, “Never Know.” The song swings and grooves and contains one of the most passionately unique vocal deliveries for a pop rock song released in recent memory. It mixes elements of an indie rock nature while still staying true to a pop rock backbone — the best of both avenues.

The song comes off of Look Out Love’s new EP, Oh Boy, which is due out Sept. 1. Look Out Love mastermind Jordan Benker had this to say …

Rustie’s Remix Of Ginuwine’s “Pony” Might Change Your Life

Magic Mike XXL was everything fans of the series could have hope it would be, but yesterday we discovered one unused song from the film that might have made things even better.

EDM favorite Rustie revealed to the world Monday afternoon that he had created a remix of Ginuwine’s classic track “Pony” for the Channing Tatum-led sequel, but the song was ultimately cut from the film ahead of its official release. Rustie didn’t know what to do with the song otherwise, so he decided to throw it up online for fans to enjoy. You can stream the track below.

Polyenso Share Tranquil New Single, “Osaka Son”

Late yesterday, Polyenso graced the interwebs with a dreamy new single titled “Osaka Son,” taken from their impending sophomore LP, Pure In The Plastic. Give it a listen below (via Consequence Of Sound).

“This song is about head versus heart,” vocalist Alex Schultz told COS. “In this case, you’re focusing on the head. It’s about all of those things you do throughout your life–big and small–that may not fulfill your soul, but for the meantime, you’re content because you’ve satisfied some kind of immediate desire. Like sleeping with someone you don’t love, or spending frivolously on things outside …
