Alternative | RUBBER connect with NIC HANSON’ via “REASON THAT YOU CAME HERE”

Posted by on June 3, 2021

Philadelphia’s Rubber have been causing quite the stir in the industry lately, and their latest offering ‘Reason
That You Came Here’ is a track that is too good to ignore. Taking a trip into psychedelica, the funky duo adopt warped synths and electro-pop rhythms that play as a sultry backdrop for the alluring narrative. Sewing sound samples into the lyricism, they use peppered percussion to build up to a killer chorus that is shimmering with gorgeous falsetto harmonies, with a charming attitude akin to that of Anderson.Paak. Complimenting each other in their varying musical tastes, singer Andrew Loper and multi-instrumentalist/producer John Della Franco have struck gold with the track, which features a groove-laden verse from fellow Philadelphian Nic Hanson . “Reason That You Came Here is all about confidence and not giving a flying fuck” Rubber explains,

It’s about anticipating that feeling of being in a room and having all the eyes on you, being the center of attention, and owning it. Being cooped up this past year has been an intense and tiring experience. For us and many other artists, the return of shows has been the one light at the end of this tunnel that we are desperate to catch a glimpse of. We just booked our first hometown show for June 10th at Sunflower Philly so that light is well within reach now. This song is the perfect capstone to this era of our career, live music is popping up again after this long pandemic winter, andwe will once again be the reason that you came here, to the show, for a night of connective, energetic, eclectic music”.

Hip-Hop | Dylan Joshua drops self-titled V&B track “can’t stay”

Posted by on October 4, 2020

Dylan Joshua has returned with a new relationship influenced single entitled “can’t stay.” Not one to be penned into strict genres of hip-hop or RnB, Dylan’s art could be defined at V&B – vibes and blues. The track creates the perfect balance of cool and dreamy vibes that maintains a spellbinding stream of consciousness that is effortlessly and melodically performed. The somewhat sad, somewhat real tune is about the end of a relationship and how tricky it can sometimes be to finally leave. See a quote via Joshua below and stream the song above now.

can’t stay is the honest truth of me realizing the ending of a relationship and my thoughts on it. A lot of the music I make I just make for myself, I don’t write with the intention to put it out, so with my music, listeners are really just getting the true stream of thought of what I’m dealing with. Hopefully it opens up conversations for people to talk more about the issues they’re going through, unlike I did. I know for me personally, especially when things aren’t working out in a relationship it takes a toll because it’s like fighting a secret war. You don’t wanna show anyone there’s trouble in paradise so you kind of bottle it up. Thankfully I have music as an outlet but to the people out there who don’t it’s definitely a struggle I empathize with. It can be very draining”

We are astounded by her range and dynamics which really give the whole record a lot of uniqueness. More on the song via Sam Doll: “I’m a writer, and I realized that writing is what I’m best at and meant to do, but often times you write alone. And I like having a lot of people around all the time. So with music, I get to write something, and then bring it to my producer, go to the studio, do a show, etc – it’s much more social.”
