Winning Best New Pop Star...and Best New Pop Album!
Taylor Grey is on her way to big things. She is already a big winner. She just received two Independent Music Awards! Her Miami track won for "Best Pop Song" and her debut album, Space Case, won "Best Pop Album". While she was in the city, she got a chance to stop by Popdust Presents to give us some insight to who she really is. As would be expected, her Facebook Live interview with Brent Butler was filled with a lot of laughs and some interesting revelations.
Rising Kobalt/AWAL artist Taylor Grey has been named as two-time Nominee in the 16th annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs)
First off, Taylor is such a charming and delightful individual, with such a laid back poise. The Popdust team had a blast while she was here, perhaps her recognition is reflective of her outlook on making music. She has been writing music since she was 12 years old. Taylor shows no signs of slowing, accelerating her climb to the top. Her success at the IMA's may be a foreshadowing of her imminent celebrity status.
WATCH the 2018 IMA's Best Pop Song "Miami" Live:
Taylor had literally just stepped off the plane from LA and took a car directly to Popdust Headquarters. She made it in plenty of time to relax and practice her songs before the broadcast. The song "Intentionally" highlights the maturity in her songwriting, with the ability to communicate about the motivation behind someone's actions. Brent, who had dressed like Han Solo, had her laughing the entire interview. Everyone left the interview with a smile on their face and wishing Taylor luck at the IMA's. Popdust congratulates this up and coming talent.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
