The singer sits down with Popdust to discuss her new EP.
Hailey Knox writes music to empower the outsider.
With her 2016 debut, A Little Awkward, the 19-year-old gave the world anthems for misfits everywhere, racking up thousands of streams across platforms. Having spent much of the past two years touring with artists like Charlie Puth, the singer-songwriter is returning with her new EP: Hardwired. While the 11 track mixtape features songs that cover a wide spectrum of emotions and subjects, Hailey's powerful voice and heart-felt performances are consistently breath-taking throughout.
Hailey sat down with Popdust's own Brent Butler to discuss her mouth-trumpeting skills, Hardwired, and her upcoming headlining tour. While Brent talked far too much about his shirt, Hailey talked about being herself in the face of conformity culture and writing Hardwired on a hotel room floor.

Hailey performed the title track from her new EP, showing off her exceptional guitar skills and leaving Brent almost too overcome with emotion to continue the interview. While Brent redid his mascara in the bathroom, Hailey performed "Traumatized," a jazzy number featuring an impressive mouth trumpet and a surprising sample.

Finally, after Brent pulled it together, the Magic Box made an appearance. While Brent unfortunately admitted to finding the Sims sexually arousing, the interview was saved by the entrance of Fred the dog, whom Brent held as though he'd never in his life held a dog before.

It was always her dance floor.
Few artists have given as much of themselves to their fans as Lady Gaga.
Since being ordained queen of the nightclub (not to mention the pregame, the getting-ready-bedroom-dance, the drag show, and the summer night drive) in 2008 with "Just Dance," the hit single from her hit debut album The Fame, Gaga has continued to surprise fans with constant reinvention. She cemented her place as the pop-artist of a generation with Born This Way and even (as over-produced as it was) Art Pop, and then, shockingly, went on to release a jazz standard's album with Tony Bennett (Cheek to Cheek), a country album (Joanne), and finally become an Oscar-nominated actress for A Star Is Born. Somehow, she pulled off every iteration of herself with charisma and grace.

Sincere, vulnerable, and seductive.
Australian DIY pop artist Airports, AKA Aaron Lee, releases "U FEEL IT 2," following on the heels of his dreamy lo-fi banger, "Don't Sleep Anymore."
Aaron explains the double entendre of the song, "It started out being written as a song about a haunting relationship with depression in contrast to uplifting music, but when some of the lyrics started to spill out I realized I was also writing about positive romantic feelings for my partner." Featuring bleeding synths, blushing harmonies, and Aaron's velvety falsetto, "U FEEL IT 2" is a perfect summer anthem.
