ARTICLE: NEW POLITICS SINGLE “EVERYWHERE I GO”

Words: Alex Tringali
Last month, New Politics dropped a new single on their website, Everywhere I Go (Kings and Queens).  I first heard the song on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation, who was one of the first stations to break it.  It wasn’t available on iTunes yet, but I found a website streaming it and downloaded it the same day.  That’s how much I love it.  The Copenhagen trio released their last full-length album A Bad Girl in Harlem back in 2013, which featured hit tracks like Harlem and Tonight You’re Perfect.  Everywhere I Go was released officially as a single on iTunes on September 26th.  Their fall 2014 tour with Bad Suns and SomeKindaWonderful kicks off October 14th in Washington D.C. at the 9:30 Club.

STYLE STATION: MATCHING SETS

Words: Haley Walker
So nice, we did it twice: loud patterns and bold colors are coming in two’s this season. Heavy flannels and silky jackets now have the pants to match — and sweater skirts come with crop tops in the same color. Keep a heavily embellished look neat with black or neutral accessories. A sleek bob or ponytail will suit the ensemble without distracting. Remember, fall doesn’t have to be all plaid and bland — this season welcomes hot pink, canary yellow, and emerald green. Give your fall wardrobe a fresh kick with these matching sets.

ALBUM REVIEW: SIR SLY’S YOU HAUNT ME

★★★★★  Review by: Alex Tringali

Los Angeles band Sir Sly is gearing up to release their debut album, You Haunt Me this month.  The indie pop trio band is redefining what it means to be dubbed as “indie.”  Typically thought of as effervescent and upbeat, Sir Sly’s “indie” music is a deep, dark, brooding type, with a balance between acoustic instruments and electronic beats. Originally, the trio functioned anonymously, adding to their mystery.  Once they generated a steady following, they finally revealed their true identities.

ALBUM REVIEW: LIGHTS’ LITTLE MACHINES

★★★1/2  Review by: Amelia Charleen

The Canadian synth-pop princess has done it again with an electronic-vibing album.  Lights’ latest album, entitled Little Machines, carries that synth sway-your-body feel that we all expect in her music - however, it feels much different than it has before.  Both her voice and her musical sound have have changed in a way that I don’t know whether to like it or question it.
