ZAYDE WØLF has released an incredible music video for his latest single “Rumble” featuring world-renowned gamer DrLupo to celebrate National Video Games Day. “Rumble” started out as a small yet mighty chorus roaring around in his head which then became a full-formed explosive and arena-ready track. The video follows DrLupo along on his journey through a game of Fortnite

DrLupo is Ben Lupo, a talented gamer and Twitch broadcaster with over 3.5M followers. His unbelievable gaming skills made him the perfect partner for this video. “Matching up these huge and crazy Fortnite eliminations with ‘Rumble’ go together like French fries and ketchup,” says ZAYDE WØLF mastermind Dustin Burnett. It’s an in-your-face rock anthem to push you through any given battle. “Ever since I was introduced to ZAYDE a few months ago by a viewer, his music has been a driving force for hyping up the stream for a good day. Big plays in Fortnite and ZAYDE WØLF’s beats are the the PB&J of the channel,” Lupo adds. 

“Anthemic and heroic,‘Cold Blooded’ is a single that inspires and brings out the animalistic rebel in anyone who listens.” -Come Here Floyd (on “Cold-Blooded”) 

Based in Nashville, TN, ZAYDE WØLF is the project of Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer and entrepreneur Dustin Burnett. His incredible work all started from a single, somewhat accidental, song that received such a strong reaction that it turned into an all-consuming project. Since then, Burnett has been making music, directing and producing his own music videos and artistic directing his own visuals. 

Without any outside funding or corporate help, ZAYDE WØLF has gained 174K YouTube subscribers, 38 million views, and his music has been streamed over 235 million times. His musical success has also lead to placements in hundreds of films, TV shows, trailers, commercials, and video games. The list includes Shameless, Teen Wolf, Love, Simon, the Jack Reacher 2 trailer, The Maze Runner 3, Pride Prejudice & Zombies, spots for UFC, the NFL and the NBA. Burnett has also creatively expanded his reach by cultivating relationships with partners such as Dude Perfect, one of the top YouTube sports channels with over 40 Million subscribers and 7 Billion views. In the past, he has also partnered with America's Got Talent and YouTube star Sofi Dossi on the video for his single "Rule the World."

NEXT CItY RELEASES "TELL ME"

NEXT CItY RELEASES “TELL ME”

next-city-tell-me.jpg

Los Angeles rockers NEXT CItY have released their second single “Tell Me” along with an incredible video out everywhere today. It’s hot off the success of their debut “Blue Star,” whose video has now amassed over 60K views. In addition to the release of the single, the band has also launched a Kickstarter campaign filled with exclusive merch, signed photos, personalized messages and more as rewards for their fans.

“NEXT CItY bring something a little heavier to the table, some real gritty alt rock sounds come through whilst the vocals keep the track on its radio friendly path. It’s certainly a big sound from a band who have all the potential to become a household name.” -YACK! Magazine (on “Blue Star”)

Lyrically, this song is all about the back and forth of being involved with someone, but being unsure of what they want from you. Philip Paulsen (guitarist) started with a riff and composition, then handed it off to Larsen for lyrics and melody, a perfect example of the dynamic duo’s synergetic work.

NEXT CItY is the brainchild of vocalist and actor Samuel Larsen, best known for his work on Glee as Joe Hart and his supporting role in the current hit film After (based on the novel by Anna Todd that became a worldwide phenomenon) and guitarist Paulsen. The two met while on tour together and began writing for a brand new project they wanted to be heavy in garage rock grit, layered over a foundation steeped in groove. They have a unique way of fusing their experimental energy with the modern era of rock n’ roll. With fuzzy, funk-tinged guitars and pocket beats, their sound is familiar on the ears, yet unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. The quartet is completed by the unwavering rhythm section of bassist Nick Diiorio and drummer Ben Brinckerhoff. They’ve come together to perfect their brand of guitar-driven rock influenced by heavy hitters like Death From Above 1979, The Dead Weather, and Queens of the Stone Age, all while encompassing the electric energy of funk-driven pop music that takes its cues from Prince and Michael Jackson.

“Most people probably haven’t heard of the band NEXT CItY, but all of that is about to change in the coming weeks.” -Regional Music Journal

The band will also bring their infectious sound to a live setting, playing showcases in both Los Angeles and New York this June.

NEXT CItY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF “BLUE STAR”

+ LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK SHOWCASES

Los Angeles band NEXT CIty is making their sonic assault on the world with the release of their debut single  “Blue Star.” NEXT CIty is the creation of vocalist (and renowned actor) Samuel Larsen, best known for his work on Glee as the Joe Hart character, and his supporting role in the current hit film After , based on the novel by Anna Todd that became a worldwide phenomenon and guitarist Philip Paulsen. The two met while on tour together and began writing for a brand new project that would be heavy in garage rock grit, layered over a foundation steeped in groove, with the intention of getting people to shake off their inhibitions and dance. The band is rounded out by bassist Nick Diiorio, and drummer Ben Brinckerhoff who have helped to perfect the band’s brand of guitar-driven rock influenced heavy hitters like Death From Above 1979, The Dead Weather and Queens of The Stone Age, all while encompassing the electric energy of funk driven pop music that takes its cues from Prince and Michael Jackson.

Following releasing solo music in the pop and funk world, Larsen had the itch to start a rock band, to write and perform with. “ ‘Blue Star’ was the first song I started working on with a band in mind”, says Larsen. “I had the riffs and lyrics for a while before I met Phil and I felt stuck,  like I couldn't fully finish it, so I handed it off to Phil and he tightened up the arrangement, added a falsetto hook in the chorus and together we added a bridge.” “Blue Star” is inspired by the dichotomy between the dream and the reality of Hollywood and how it can be the dream but also the nightmare. The song is performed from the point of Hollywood and that they are enticing the dreamer with the bright dreams, but haunting her with the harsh reality too.

Later this summer, in addition to the release of their second single "Tell Me”, the band will be playing Los Angeles on June 5th at the Peppermint Club (tickets and info HERE) and June 11 in New York at the Mercury Lounge (tickets and info HERE).

THE MOWGLI’S RELEASE “MR. TELEPHONE” SINGLE FROM AMERICAN FEELINGS EP DUE OUT MARCH 1

Mr. Telephone.jpg

California alt. rockers The Mowgli’s have released “Mr. Telephone,” the second single from their forthcoming EP American Feelings out March 1. The four songs that make up American Feelings all harken to the lack of discourse and engagement prevalent in society today, especially with technology serving as both a facilitator and barrier.

“Mr. Telephone” was written from observing the feelings of isolation, anxiety and the lack of connection in fans, friends, family and society as a whole, much of it fueled by technology. “With social media creating transparency, we can see so much more,” says Josh Hogan.  “We’re all so available & we get answers in a matter of seconds. Some of us thrive in this environment, and some just can’t seem to cope.” The pointed social commentary is delivered through a subtle hypnotic melody and sweeping infectious choruses that have become the band’s signature.

“We are all Mr. Telephone,” says Katie Earl  “seeking answers from a device in the palm of our hands, but after all is said and done, how much more connected are we? How much can we gain from spending time inside our phones, and how much do we lose? There is a lot of love and knowledge and connection outside of our little boxes, and finding a balance is more crucial than ever before.”

The Mowgli’s hit the road with Jukebox the Ghost on their co-headlining “Making Friends” tour the end of the month. See the full list of tour dates HERE.
