We’ve had a love affair with POP ETC ever since they first yo-yo’d into our hearts and minds a few summers back. Hot on the heels of their latest album Souvenir and its snarling lead single “What Am I Becoming”, the bicoastal heartbreakers are back today with a coastline cover of Sam Cooke’s classic, “It’s Alright”, ahead of their Popshop NYC headline next month. Tickets still available HERE.
After heating up the stratosphere with their eponymous debut EP last year, Transviolet roll on today with a brand new firecracker in the form of “LA Love”. Deep in the West Coast permahaze of days gone by, the bicoastal transplants keep things breezy for yet another exultant youth anthem for the ages. Feel the love below and don’t miss their Popshop West headliner next month at The Echo, advance tickets available HERE.
Dagny and BØRNS are two of pop’s greatest revelations from the past 18 months, and today they’ve joined forces to deliver an absolute triumph. Rounding out the holy trinity is Tommy English – the studio architect behind BØRNS‘ Dopamine and much of the Tigertown oeuvre – and the result is an international pop tribunal that’s a force to be reckoned with. Dagny’s debut single “Backbeat”? Excellent. BØRNS’ entire output to date? Phenomenal. “Fool’s Gold”? GAMECHANGER.
POWERS are no strangers to island-in-the-sun popclassics, and today Mike and Crista return with yet another solar-powered space heater on brand new single “Sunshine”. Like Miike Snow getting pitch-shifted into tropical oblivion, it’s got feel good hit of the summer written all over it and serves up the perfect prelude to the duo’s Popshop West headline with Tigertown next month, tix still available HERE.
We’ve got a full deck of Popshop West aces already up our sleeve this summer with POWERS and Tigertown coming in hot July 12th and Great Good Fine Ok on deck for July 29th, and we’re keeping the flames stoked through August with our latest PSW heater arriving August 10th. Featuring Transviolet topping the marquee in their LA headline debut and special guest supports announcing in the weeks to come, you’re gonna want to go ahead and mark your calendars and cop your advance tickets HERE stat.
After years touring with Jack Antonoff and Bleachers, New York-via-New Orleans psych-soul upstart Mikey Freedom strikes out on his own as Ex Reyes with debut single “Bad Timing”. Swirling together like a homegrown acid trip into the great beyond, it feels a little bit Tame Impala, a little bit Jungle, and everything in between; nostalgic and familiar but entirely modern, the perfect soundtrack to the halcyon daze of early summer. Catch Ex Reyes lighting up a two week residency at Elvis Guesthouse the last two Wednesdays of July.
Summer’s in full swing and we’re feeling the burn. Coming in even hotter still are our dudes POP ETC, still riding high on the back of their sophomore album earlier this year, as they get set to headline the August edition of our Baby’s All Right Popshop outpost. Special guest supports announcing in the weeks to come, but for now mark your calendar and get your tix for August 12th HERE.
Tigertown‘s “Lonely Cities” is one of 2016’s most picture perfect anthems, and today its first proper remix arrives courtesy of fellow Sydney heatseeker, Wishes. The Down Under up and comer – whose own smoldering debut is one of Australia’s finest of the year – takes the original and dresses it up in all manner of swirling, affecting electronics, as he turns the laid bare emotion of the original up to 11 and drives the chorus straight through your heartstrings. Tigertown return to the states next month for Stars + Stripes plus Popshop plays in NYC and LA, tickets available here.
We’ve been all over Beginners since the very beginning. Today, the LA outfit return with a brand new one called “Gangsters or Lovers”, a white-hot scorcher that sizzles on the blacktop burning bright with desire. Feel the heat below and keep an eye out for their brand new Pleaser EP dropping September 16th.
Swede dream Marlene recently brought her Scandinavian pop majesty to the Popshop stage for the first time, and continues her triumphant return this week with brand new single “All I Want”. All shimmering confetti synths and heart-bursting melodies, it’s a blissed-out summertime serenade that marks a welcome return for one of Sweden’s hottest tips.
