For the young and vibrant Quinn Lewis, it's imperative that his music is vulnerable.
The Australian-native, Nashville based singer-songwriter's powerful voice and raw poetic lyrics have ear steady following since his emergence in 2017. After coming off a successful tour with Kevin Garrett, Lewis's debut singles "Only Everything," and "Hanging On" were both met with critical acclaim. "With confidence and vulnerability that welcomes listeners to look inward while appreciating the joys around them," Billboard wrote, "Lewis proves his voice is one to follow."
Now, Lewis hopes his new single, "Hurt Me Now," will catapult him to the next level. "I wrote 'Hurt Me Now' when I felt stuck in the rotation of this relationship I knew was ending," Lewis told Popdust. The single is a moving tribute to lost love and a compelling fusion of indie and electro-pop. "When we shot the video, we wanted to portray the moment of knowing you're going somewhere but feeling like it's taking forever to get there," he continued. "Not being able to tell how much time is passing, but knowing that sometime soon you've got to get off the bus." Check out the premiere of "Hurt Me Now."

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Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.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.
