Mr. Popular Releases “Poison”

MR. POPULAR’S NEW SINGLE “POISON” OUT TODAY

LISTEN HERE

On the heels of millions of streams and countless questions about his identity, the Southern California singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist—with a brown paper bag on his head (who emotes with Sharpie-penned expressions)— Mr. Popular releases his new single “Poison” today.

Get it HERE via Casablanca Records.

Emblematic of his self-stylized “ADHD pop,” the track oscillates between danceable synthesizers, thick 808’s, and a hypnotic hook. It offers the perfect gateway into his wildly wonderful world and hints at a lot more to come in the near future. He’ll share the track’s music video very soon. Be on the lookout for its debut!

Additionally, “Poison” paves the way for his debut EP, which will drop in the very near future.

Adopting the bag in 2018, Mr. Popular came to life. His first independent single “Mix Up” introduced a new sound and amassed over 1 million Spotify streams in under a couple months. Meanwhile, “Fight It” ignited 2.3 million Spotify streams as he caught the attention of Casablanca Records who signed him in late 2018. Ultimately, he’ll naturally achieve the popularity his name implies through the best way possible—just being himself.

Evan Konrads “The Long Way Out” Video

EVAN KONRAD SHARES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “THE LONG WAY OUT” ANNOUNCES SPRING TOUR & FESTIVALS

Check out video for “The Long Way Out” here

Singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Evan Konrad releases the official video for “The Long Way Out” today.

Check out the video HERE and get the song HERE via LAVA/Republic Records.

An unpredictable anthem teetering between manic energy and cathartic falsetto, the track invites listeners into the artist’s handcrafted sonic world. Produced and performed by Konrad, “The Long Way Out” hinges on an airy beat, haunting vocals, and a seesawing chant—“We take the long way out.”

On the video Konrad said: Originally the treatment for “The Long Way Out Video” was about a visual metaphor for a vanity filled man fighting to escape the chaos of his own mind. Having spent time shooting the video, I began to realize that it was very much a metaphor to my past as an artist, like a prologue to my future. The look, the way I’m dressed, even the style and lyrics of the song all seem to dwell in both an old and new world for me. It wasn’t something I was consciously aware of during the process of shooting. It’s quite a liberating experience to have that documented and showcased in this music video, especially being that It’s my introduction to the world.” On the track Konrad previously said: “The Long Way Out is a journey through the act of letting go, and how romanticized it can be throughout the grieving process. Unable to accept the changes within ourselves, or the changes in another person, as we reach for a connection that no longer exists. I wrote this song to acknowledge and work through this within myself. I want this song to be a beacon of light for anyone who is looking for the same liberation I sought after.” This is just the beginning for Konrad as he just announced new tour dates with Black Pistol Fire and performances at Epicenter Music Festival and Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival. See full tour dates below  

Born and raised in Abbotsford, BC Canada, Konrad devoted his entire life to crafting music. Growing up in a house where creativity would be encouraged at every turn, he spent countless hours writing songs and producing. Following stints in the studio and on the road with other artists, he locked himself away in the studio at 26 and commenced work on what would become his forthcoming debut. With nothing more than a demo tape, he caught the attention of LAVA founder Jason Flom who signed him on the spot upon listening to his music, because of the downright mind-blowing songcraft. The best way to describe the music would be Thom Yorke translating Christopher Nolan’s Memento into songs, and even that only scratches the surface.

Izzy Escobar

Overcoming hardship and transforming it into triumph through music is nothing new, but it takes a unique talent to do it in a way that truly leaves an impact on one’s psyche. Such is the case with Singer-Songwriter Izzy Escobar, whose debut single “Broken Wings” (Available everywhere digitally on June 29th!) showcases her commanding attitude and powerful vocal prowess in very distinct fashion.

With “Broken Wings”, subtle synth work and a stomping beat lay the groundwork for an alluring lyrical journey of determination shining through pain as Escobar sings Right here in my place all these walls suddenly disintegrate // Into dust, into here, it flies away out of the atmosphere // And I feel like I can fly with broken wings”.


“I believed that music and song had the potential to change lives because of the way it is able to positively affect our emotions and perceptions”

Izzy Escobar’s music is about loving one another the way we want to be loved ourselves. And having FUN along the way! Rising from a “never ending circle of violence” from an abusive stepparent, where she was voiceless in protecting her own family members, she began channeling that pain into lyrics–and eventually songs–at a very young age. “I began to write words, and soon realized that I could synchronize the words in my diary with the tune in my head” says the Massachusetts native, whose latest singles show how far she’s come from that frightened girl to a strong, capable woman who wants to spread her message of hope and strength to those who may face their own struggles. “A few years later, as I read through that same songbook, I noticed that I had made a shift from finding my voice to helping those who couldn’t find their own”.

As she continued on her musical journey, Escobar took to not only writing and singing, but reading sheet music and studying music theory, as well as playing the violin, guitar, and piano. “I believe that to be a healthy human being, we must have an idea of who we are, and what our existence is. But the promise of a home safe from physical abuse and fear remains elusive for many millions of women and children in this country. Now an accomplished singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, she continues to channel her strengths into giving a voice to the voiceless, and helping those who face the same fate as she had in her youth.

SAARA RELEASES NEW SINGLE “ALL THE LOVE (FT. JILLIONAIRE)” TODAY

LISTEN HERE
 

Today, LA-based singer and songwriter SAARA releases a new single, “All The Love ft. Jillionaire”: LISTEN HERE.
 

This is a follow-up to SAARA’s previous single “Superpowers,” which has surpassed over 7 million streams globally and received airplay in her home country of Finland as well as Sweden, Norway, and Estonia. For “All The Love,” SAARA teamed up with Jillionaire from acclaimed electronic music trio Major Lazer.

 

SAARA describes the single:

“‘All The Love’ is about being in a relationship where you find yourself loving your partner while not being in love with them. I believe many people in relationships have experienced this, since it is so normal to fall in and out of love. You still love your partner, but have sort of lost the loving feeling, and that’s what this song is about. Whether you try to fix the situation or leave the relationship, that’s up to you.”
