MGMT is charting an ominously morbid, gothic return with their latest track, the aptly-named “When You Die.”
Confronting the concept of death, vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden sings, “You die / and words don’t do anything.” Continuing, “It’s permanently night / and I won’t feel anything.”
A buoyant melody and driving synth aid in the exuberance of a most blissful multitude on the new track. It’s both enveloping and enthralling, all while the video’s protagonist flys through a blissful void of seemingly meaningless activities, and a sea of space when he passes.
“When You Die” is akin to the very ethos of the synth-pop stars. VanWyngarden lashes out on the track, “Go fuck yourself / You heard me right / Don’t call me nice, again,” all while simultaneously encapsulating the introspective lyrics and dazzling dexterity of group that seems to be charting a momentous return.
Little Dark Age is due out in February of 2018 and will serve as a follow-up to the band’s self-titled LP of 2013. While its release date and tracklist have yet to be announced, they’ve been performing new tracks from the record while on tour, and have an array of festivals they’re set to appear at.
Marshmello is downright brilliant when it comes to his music videos. Many of the videos tell a visual story and connect together to create a narrative of Marshmello’s life growing up. The latest video for ‘Take It Back’ does not buck that trend. This time the video focuses on Marshmello and his entire family at
Canadian multi-genre singer-songwriter DELANEY JANE celebrates the release of “HOWL,” her debut single with an breathe-taking music video. Most known for her features and collaborations with some of the biggest names in electronic dance music and tracks of the last decade, Delaney is now focusing her passion for singing and songwriting into her solo project. “HOWL,”
Le Youth has always been one to push out quality content that’s full of good vibes. Known for incorporating 90s R&B and Pop sound into his tracks, his latest experiment “I Could Always” is a perfect example of that throwback sound. The Los Angeles producer teamed up with MNDR in this chill Nu Disco track.
Delaney Jane‘s name has popped up all across the dance music spectrum in recent years. The Canadian singer has been featured on tracks by the likes of Tiësto, Adventure Club, REZZ, and many more. She’s ending 2017 on a high note with a track of her own, “HOWL,” produced by Shaun Frank.
“HOWL” is centered on the singer’s emotive vocals over a simple mellow dance beat. In “HOWL” and its accompanying music video, Delaney Jane showcases both her wild side — calling for her listeners to howl at the moon — while also showing her sensitive side, describing the feeling of longing when being separated from a loved one.
The track is the debut release from Delaney Jane’s upcoming solo EP.
It was only a matter of time: Marshmello is now doing it for the culture.
In a year of continued growth for the producer, collaborating with some of music’s most sought-after acts — like Khalid and Selena Gomez — the helmeted producer has finally teamed up with hip-hop’s hottest group, Migos.
The resulting track “Danger” is a quintessential, nitty-gritty hip-hop track from Migos. It bolsters both delightful underlying brass instrumentation and a smooth bassline, leaning into Migos’ style wholeheartedly. And while it’s surely a departure from Marshmello’s more recent releases, it’s not entirely out of character for one of music’s most keen cameleons.
“Danger” is off the Netflix soundtrack for the original new movie Bright, which makes its worldwide release on the streaming giant December 22.
