Beach Fossils starts their album with a jingle jangle of a song with This Year. The next two songs Tangerine and Saint Ivy stay with this similar sound.

He’s written for pop musicians like Taylor Swift, Lorde and Sia. But expanded outside of the top 40 world to work with Grimes, Troye Sivan, and St. Lucia. His 80’s inspired slow building synth beat’s all leave hints in his other works, and their lyrics have a poetic quality that captures a feeling rather than a scene. Lorde credited him with giving her the best song writing advice ever by saying “Happiness is a for tourist write you little f*****”. So it’s no surprise that Jack Antonoff album number two captures that eighties pop bliss without it being overdone and lyrics sits in the perfect of spot of crazy and sane. I feel like everyone does an 80’s inspired pop ballad today. It can be eas
The Splatterhouse - Two Hours of industrial, metal, goth, punk, and other types of electronic jams! The darkest, heaviest, filthiest show on WIDR FM! Friday nights from Midnight to 2am!

The song comes third on the album an
