October 15 | 'Past Lives' from our current crush
THE MIX | Fall into fall with bittersweet beats, collected for you by Against the Current.
10.15.18 | "We made a moody fall playlist that's perfect for late night driving, evenings at home, and when you want to chill. As a band we've done a lot of late night drives in the fall months. We also grew up where people travel to [see] the apple orchards, pumpkin picking, and hay mazes nearby, so fall has always been a staple of growing up. These songs are mostly nostalgic and moody, that 'sweet sadness' feeling."
About the Band
Against The Current has been called everything from "pop-rock perfection" (
Alternative Press) to "super varied and compelling" (Billboard). Their latest album, Past Lives, brings fresh pop sounds to fans worldwide, keeping the praise pouring in.
Following noteworthy success with their first album, In Our Bones, which debuted at #2 on Billboard's 'Top New Artists' chart in 2016, Past Lives brings us to the present, with a sound that proves their sophomore album is just as juicy. "The album's title references the idea that we often don't recognize ourselves when we look back," the band says, "as one chapter of life closes and another opens."
Produced by Andrew Goldstein (Demi Lovato, 5 Seconds of Summer, Fifth Harmony) and Tommy English (BØRNS, Broods, Kacey Musgraves), Past Lives was written and recorded over the course of a year, resulting in pure pop perfection.
"Superstardom awaits," proclaims KERRANG! But we think Against The Current is already shining in the stratosphere.

Now more than ever, as Black Lives Matter protests occur around the world, it's extremely important to lift marginalized voices. The music industry has repeatedly erased Black voices throughout history, despite the fact that most mainstream genres were invented by Black people.
The new video explores the pain of feeling utterly helpless.
London-based alt-pop artist Ebony Buckle has just unveiled the music video for her single, "Ghost."
