FISHER Releases “You Little Beauty”

Grammy -nominated DJ and producer FISHER has dropped new single “You Little Beauty,” released today, May 10th. Listen to the track HERE.

The track, which samples the vocals of late disco and house legend Loleatta Holloway, is released via the Australian artist’s own Catch & Release label and Astralwerks. The track evoked a particularly strong reaction when dropped in the midst of FISHER’s massively well-received set at Coachella last month.

“You Little Beauty” marks the larger-than-life character’s first release of 2019, following on from last years “Losing It.” An instant hit, the track has now racked up more than 66 million Spotify streams.

This preceded a sold out Catch & Release party at Miami Music Week, and FISHER’s summer is shaping up to be just as busy. With slots at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and Movement Detroit before the end of the month, he will then embark on an extensive European tour, taking in Parklife, Lovebox, Leeds & Reading, and more.

FISHER is also set to partner with Solardo and Camelphat for a brand-new weekly Ibiza residency. Titled Bodyworks, they will take over Hï Ibiza every Tuesday from June 25th to September 24th.

Known for his wild sense of humor and energetic DJing style, FISHER first burst onto the US electronic scene with tracks “Stop It” and “Ya Kidding” and has since become one of the scene’s most in- demand talents.

Arriving just in time for summer, “You Little Beauty” has all the makings of a track set to take both charts and dance floors by storm.

Bene Drops “Evil Spider”

Hailing from the suburbs of Auckland, 19-year-old indie pop artist Bene returns with her latest single “Evil Spider,” out today—listen HERE! Coming off the heels of her Gold-Certified hit “Soaked,” the up and coming singer and songwriter also announces her upcoming debut EP is set for release on June 28.
 
Of “Evil Spider,” Bene says, “‘Evil Spider’ is about wanting someone that’s already taken. When writing the song, I didn’t wanna make the lyrics too obviously evil, so I thought I’d turn myself into the spider, making it a lil lighter and making the song revolve around me weaving webs to lure the person, catch ‘em like a spider then reel them in. I remember humming ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ in the studio, which inspired the playful vibe of the song.”
 
Bene has emerged as New Zealand’s artist to watch with her chart-topping hit “Soaked,” which quickly climbed Spotify’s Viral Charts, accumulated over 17 million streams to date, charted on Australia’s Triple J radio’s Hottest 100 of 2018 and held the number one spot on New Zealand’s Shazam Top 100 for two months, not to mention achieved Gold Certification in New Zealand and Australia. With endorsements from Zane Lowe and Apple’s Beats1 radio, Bene went from playing her first small club gig to her first arena show—opening for longtime role model Lily Allen—in a matter of months. 

In support of “Evil Spider” and her upcoming debut EP, Bene will be performing at New York’s Mercury Lounge on June 17. Tickets are available now HERE.

Allan Rayman Releases “Poison”

Toronto-based singer/songwriter Allan Rayman releases his new single “Poison.” Listen HERE!
 
Of the song, Allan says, “I really forgot about the song. I had made it with the intention of it being part of Harry Hard On, and I guess I just overlooked it. I rediscovered it and I love the song so here we are.”
 
Beginning on May 21, Allan and his band will be taking their live show on the road. The tour dubbed The Allan Rayman Show will be heading to 22 cities across North America. Kicking off in Portland, OR and making stops in major markets including Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Boston, Austin and Vancouver. A full list of dates is below and tickets are available now HERE.
 
“Poison” follows Allan’s critically acclaimed album Harry Hard-On released late last year via Republic Records/KIDindaKorner. “Rose,” the album’s debut single, climbed the alternative radio charts and has over two million Spotify streams to date. Harry Hard-On has also been met with critical praise, with TIME Magazine heralding the track “Crush,” saying,“Rayman’s voice contains multitudes: a rough ache, a smooth hum, a rock star’s confidence.”  

BANKS “Gimme”

BANKS returns with the darkly hypnotic single “Gimme,”which debuted earlier as Zane Lowe’s World Record onApple Music’s Beats 1.

“‘Gimme’ is a song about getting what you want. It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies. I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter,” says BANKS.

BANKS wrote the song with Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean, HAIM), and joined forces with producers Hudson Mohawke (Kanye West, Drake) and BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights) to realize her vision. Released by Harvest Records, “Gimme” is the first new music from BANKS since her late 2017 single, “Underdog.” Stream / download “Gimme” HERE. Watch the visualizer HERE.

BANKS has amassed 1.2 billion global streams to date across all of her songs, including over 600 million cumulative streams in the U.S. alone. After the release of her breakout debut album, Goddess, she became the world’s most blogged about artist. The 2014 album included the RIAA-certified Platinum hit “Beggin For Thread” and the Gold single “Waiting Game.” 

The Altar, released in 2016, debuted in the Top 10 in over 30 countries on iTunes. Coup De Main observed, “‘The Altar’ is an album that rewards with each listen, initially packing a powerful punch with its independence and self-determination.”

BANKS’ television performances include “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” Her songs have been heard in films (Divergent, The Longest Ride) and licensed by such television shows as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Power.”

Evan Konrad Releases New Single

Today, singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Evan Konrad reveals his new single “Come On Snake, Let’s Rattle.” 
 
Get it HERE via LAVA/Republic Records.
 
On the song Konrad said: “Come On Snake, Let’s Rattle” is an ego battle, at its core. A portrayal of a person too far gone to come back. The lyrics act as his personal introduction to you, a tour of his world, and together you explore this place for his debauchery. When I was writing the song, I would see this person in a beautiful cocktail lounge, full of elegant and fashionable people whom he could mold and control as he wished, obeying his word, almost as if they were an extension of himself. On the surface he is a walking statement of obsessive self-consumption, but as the song moves into its finale, he begins to show a deeper sadness to his character, a vulnerability. I want you to feel a warmth coming through his exterior, like a genuine smile before he ultimately turns on you too.
 
The single arrives on the heels of his debut “Long Way Down.” Since its premiere on Billboard, the song has been catching the attention of critics including Alternative Press pegging him as “the alt-pop newcomer to keep an eye on.”
 
This is just the beginning for Konrad. In May, he joins Black Pistol Fire on the road with stops everywhere from Epicenter Music Festival to Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival. In addition, he recently announced he’ll be making his debut performance at Lollapalooza on Friday, August 1.   
 
Check out the full itinerary below.
 
Born and raised in Abbotsford, BC Canada, the singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist 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 recording and on the road with other artists, he locked himself away in the studio and commenced work on what would become his forthcoming debut. With nothing more than a few songs on his private SoundCloud link shared by his manager, he caught the attention of LAVA founder Jason Flom who signed him on the spot—because of the downright mind-blowing songcraft. Now, that songcraft comes to life on his first single “Long Way Out” with its airy beat, haunting vocals, and seesawing chant.

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.
