Premiere: Between Giants “Nevermind”

By Paula Araujo

Just last spring, Between Giants made their debut and since then it’s been an adventure filled with growth both personally and musically. Today marks the start of a new chapter with the release of their single Nevermind featuring Kalimur.

The song takes the listener on a vivid dream-like journey, with the production giving off vibes of a distant memory while the lyrics paint a clear picture in the mind of emotions and turmoil. In the chorus, singer/songwriter Tyler John, explains, “[This] is my favorite portion of this song, because it is a scene by scene recreation of a real life event.”

While the song is about the struggles of vulnerability and opening up, the honesty in the lyrics is something Tyler is most proud of. He admits the biggest challenge with this track was, “Ironically, opening up and admitting to the world that I have issues with opening up.”

On how the song came about and its inspiration, Tyler shares, “I have trouble articulating my feelings a lot of the time. I am not really sure how it got this way, but I am petrified of being vulnerable. On the positive side, I am excellent at self-sabotaging my most meaningful relationships. Nevermind is my expression of wanting to say more but being unable to put myself on the line and pushing people away because of that.”

Luckily, Tyler was able to find comfort in this track by collaborating with his former band, Kalimur. Tyler gushed saying, “Brett is literally one of the best human beings on this planet. He makes everything better. Shameless plug but follow them on insta, @Kalimurband

Nevermind is just a taste of what’s to come for Between Giants. Fans can soon expect a full length record, Jupiter later this year along with a fall tour.

PVRIS Rocks Mohegan Sun

On Saturday May 19, PVRIS played a free show at Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den in Connecticut. The show was held in the middle of the Casino, making it a 21 and over show. The venue was rather intimate considering they played Terminal 5 in NYC on their last tour. The show was an hour long and filled with 11 songs, making the set list a nice mix of both their albums.

 

Backstreet’s Back, Alright!

By Paula Araujo

Truth be told, as a die-hard Backstreet Boy fan, they never left. This week marks their return with brand new music. “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is their first single since 2014’s album, In A World Like This. With the release of this new single, fans were also treated to a brand new music video.

This new song, contains all the elements of a Backstreet Boys song while branching out into new territory. It’s catchy, groovy, and filled with raw emotions. Though, track like much of today’s modern music, is filled with electronic based production. The song delivers vocally with suave harmonies and solo verses from Nick Carter and AJ McClean.

The Backstreet Boys are doing a few radio shows and still have dates for their Vegas residency. Their show is one to not miss! Check out the dates here.
