Posted by on May 2, 2021

Rising Boston-based Pop singer/songwriter Gillian is back with her third single of 2021 via “waves”. The emotional ballad once again shows off her songwriting and melody creating skillset, proving she is a Pop artist to keep an eye on this year. For fans of Taylor Swift, Alessia Cara, and Olivia Rodrigo. Check out a quote from her on the release below and stream “Waves” above now!

“I wrote waves at the end of eighth grade, when I started to realize that everything was changing. I had recently switched schools, and I was about to start high school. I had this overwhelming feeling of realizing that I wasn’t a kid anymore. Instead, my life was now plagued with worry about tests and relationships and things that, in the long run, don’t really matter. Waves was a moment of realization for me- I was growing up. My life was no longer focused on fun and fairytales, and I was nostalgic for a simpler, easier time. Waves captures a feeling of nostalgia and pain, wishing you would’ve cherished simplistic times when they existed and wondering how you ended up where you are.” – Gillian Heidi

Alternative, Indie | Caleb Hawley – “Tell Me What it’s Like to have a Dream Come True”

Posted by on July 12, 2020

Harlem-based Caleb Hawley is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who PopDust proclaimed “is the pop star pop music has done nothing to deserve, but desperately needs”. Today, Hawley shared his latest song “Tell Me What it’s Like to Have a Dream Come True,” a self-produced throwback to the classic mid-tempo ballads of the ’80s that winds through gritty R&B, raunchy rock ‘n’ roll, and pop. Discussing the track, Caleb said, “The lyrics are some of the questions that run through my head when I witness my friends seemingly break through barriers, reaching the heights I’ve long pursued, but have yet to realize. I have an inkling that these dreams are an illusion, and are unlikely to bring the peace of mind I’m hoping for. Still can’t hurt to ask.

Rap, Tour | Abhi The Nomad Drops New Single Ahead of Tour

Posted by on August 23, 2018

Indian born, internationally raised producer/MC Abhi The Nomad has been racking up some major numbers in the last couple of years.  With the release of his debut album, “Marbled“, back in February, the project has seen over 10M streams across platforms and continues to grow.  While he may have had to put his ‘Marbled‘ promo on hold to secure his visa, and therefore his future as a working artist in the US, Abhi continued to put in long hours in the studio and he is now ready to close out 2018 in a BIG way.

Now, officially granted status as an ‘Alien of Extraordinary Ability‘, Abhi The Nomad is back with his first official single of the year – and it comes along with a major announcement of his first headlining tour of North America.  Now set to embark on his 14 city ‘American Alien Tour‘ next month, Abhi is back to bring the slaps with his new single, “RUN“.  While the official release doesn’t hit until tomorrow, we are bringing you the heat a day early.

Bringing things back to his roots, Abhi departs from the more Alternative sound of his debut album and gives his OG fans exactly what they were asking for – BARS.  On the self-produced tune, pitched synths, slapping drums and stellar sound design come together to lay the bed for Abhi to go HAM.  With his new visa, and worries of once again getting kicked out of the country a thing of the past, Abhi is hungrier than ever and ready to take his underground flows mainstream.

With a stash of singles ready to go, keep an eye on Abhi The Nomad and make sure you check him live if he is coming to a city near you.  Grab tix & check the dates below.

Chill, House | The Him Goes Big On New Original “Feels Like Home”

The Him is the perfect symbol for what the chill house movement has become, representing this unique balance between chill, pop, and dance that hits the spot and makes the scene shine. The duo caught my eye a couple of months ago when their Chainsmokers remix went viral.

Last week, the Amsterdam duo dropped “Feels Like Home.” A warm original that sweeps you up and takes you along for the ride. A synth fused with a cut-up vocals sample makes up the drop – a fantastic highlight of the single. From the fine-tuned instrument choice to the overall sunny vibe of ‘Feels Like Home,” it’s clear The Him have hit a home run.
