Deb Never goes “Swimming” on new single: Stream

Deb Never has shared a new single, “Swimming”, off her upcoming House on Wheels EP. It’s our second taste of Never’s debut effort following lead single “Ugly”. “Swimming”, produced by Dylan Brady, has all the elements that have made Deb Never such a buzzy new artist. The grunge influences of her Pacific Northwest home can be felt in the guitar slides and razor sharp lyrics about “a distrusting lover.” Propelling it all along are hip-hop-tinged drums that turn the track into a genre bending slap to the face. Listen to Deb Never’s “Swimming” below. [embedded content] House on Wheels arrives August 30th via WEDIDIT. Come September, Deb Never will be touring the US with Dominic Fike. Get your tickets here. Never also recently became the first female vocalist to ever guest feature on a BROCKHAMPTON track, singing the hook of “No Halo” on the group’s GINGER. Consequence of Sound RSS Feed

Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie debuts fierce heavy metal song: Stream

Late last year, Panic! At The Disco frontman Brendon Urie promised to launch a “metal project” in the near future. After previously teasing with a raging version of the band’s “The Calendar”, today Urie returns with an all-new original heavy metal song. Urie debuted the track during a Twitch stream filmed inside his studio, as Alternative Press points out. A fierce and explosive listen, the as-yet-untitled track features some especially guttural screams courtesy of Urie himself (he even points to his throat in the video). Quite a shift from his complete pop turn with Taylor Swift on “ME!”. (Buy: Tickets to Panic! at the Disco’s Upcoming Shows) Check it out below. [embedded content] Urie’s metal adventures stem from his desire to challenge himself and try out new things musically. “I still feel like I can do more,” Urie told Rock Sound last December. He continued, “Even from song to song within one album I feel like things could change even more drastically, and maybe that’ll happen as time goes on. I still have so many different things that I want to do, particularly in terms of genres.” No word on whether fan Mayor Pete Buttigieg is on board for this version […]

Jamila Woods channels her inner Harry Potter in new “Baldwin” video: Watch

Chicago R&B artist Jamila Woods is back with a new music video for “Baldwin”. The song comes from her recent album, LEGACY! LEGACY!, which was released last month. The fantastical clip sees her create the wizarding world of Harry Potter for the black youth community in Chicago. “To outsiders, the school appears to be abandoned — one of the 50 public schools closed under Mayor Rahm Emmanuel’s watch in 2013,” explained Woods in a press release. “However, for Black people in the neighborhood this space is a gem, an oasis of Black learning and radical education for young people. We shot part of the film documentary-style, to include young people’s perspectives on what they would want their dream school to be like.” Hence why the music video for “Baldwin” turns into a Hogwarts haven. In the video, directed by Vincent Martell, kids run their shopping carts into the side of a Chicago school and find themselves on the other side. There, they’re surrounded by magnificent feasts, hair care classes, magic education courses, and more. Part way through, kids give testimonies about the type of education they wish they could receive in real public schools. It’s the visual embodiment of one […]
