Fickle Friends Premiere Music Video for 'San Francisco'

A new video off the band's newest EP, 'Broken Sleep'

Fickle Friends' newest EP, Broken Sleep is an 80s dancehall throwback, a three-song selection that conjures images of pink lycra, fuzzy leg warmers, and white-hot neon. Today, the band released the music video for the EP's lead single, "San Francisco," a song about running away to a city that's been mythologized by the narrator.

"We went to play our first show in San Fran and had the best day/night there. I thought it would be cool to do another song in a similar 'Say No More' theme and talk about escapism in a narrative," said lead singer Natti Shiner. The video itself details a cross country journey through a stream of still images. What we're given is a frantically paced story of life on the road, a glimpse, in hundreds of pictures, at the band members' interior lives. From D.C. to the West Coast, the viewer travels with the band, from restaurant to bar to soundcheck to morning cigarettes and then back to the road again.

PREMIERE | EDX Remix of David Guetta's 'Don't Leave Me Alone' (feat. Anne-Marie)

The summer festivals may be over, but EDM is always on.

When 7 dropped last month, it immediately grabbed the top spot on the iTunes charts, reaffirming that when one thinks of today's top electronic artists, David Guetta is the first name that comes to mind. Featuring artists like Sia, Justin Beiber, Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj, and J. Balvin, songs off the massive double album have already garnered over one billion streams. Partly due to the album's immediate success, Spotify currently has Guetta listed as the 8th most streamed artist in the world.

Paying homage to Guetta's sound, Swiss DJ and Producer EDX has taken 'Don't Leave Me Alone (feat. Anne-Marie)', one of the most popular songs off of 7, and transformed it into an EDM club track. The 'Indian Summer' mix, as EDX calls it, is a party song in the truest sense, pulsing bass and pink-tinted synths included. Still, there's something hauntingly desperate about the words "don't you ever leave me", especially when paired with the thrum of a electric drums and the tin-whistle bang of high pass filters. The listener is left with a strange feeling, the idea that maybe she shouldn't be dancing, that maybe this is a sad song. Yet, the urge is unavoidable. She can't help but dance.

PREMIERE | New Single and Video From Malu Trevejo and Gente De Zona

"Nadie Como Yo" comes hot on the heels of Trevejo's April hit "Hasta Luego"

Precocious and wildly talented, Malu Trevejo is back at it again with her new anthem, Nadie Como Yo.

The song, a collaboration with Latin Grammy-winning duo Gente De Zona, occupies the space between reggaeton and Radio Disney, riding the genre-bending wave of this new generation of Latin pop. Nadie Como Yo, meaning "No one like me," is also something of a personal motto for Trevejo. While this may seem a bit brash for a 15-year-old, when one considers the fact that her last hit, Luna Llena, reached the top 20 on Billboard's Latin charts, Trevejo's motto makes a bit more sense. With over seven million Instagram followers and musicians lining up around the block to collaborate, the young pop star has an extremely bright future ahead. Plus, the song is catchy as hell.
