One of this spring’s most highly anticipated pop-punk releases has to be You’re Not As ___ As You Think, the newest album by Sorority Noise.
In anticipation of the album’s release next week, the band’s been dropping new singles, like “No Halo” and “A Better Sun.”. Today, “Disappeared” became every fan’s new favorite.
It’s hard not to let the upbeat sound of Sorority Noise’s music disguise the fact that their songs are usually about the lowest lows in life, from depressive episodes and suicide attempts, to losing close friends and breakups.
Judging from these singles, this new album will stay true to the sad lyrics and beautiful sound of Joy, Departed and Forgettable.
The band also rescheduled their previously cancelled tour with Modern Baseball, headlining with The Obsessives and a handful of other artists including Shannon Moser and Mat Kerekes (lead singer of Citizen).
I’ll be catching their show at Vintage Vinyls in Fords, NJ this month (and hopefully their Williamsburg show!) for Bruised Knuckles, so stay tuned for some more articles.
Listen to “Disappeared,” along with Sorority Noise’s other two new singles below and judge for yourself.
I'm obsessed with 6LACK's PRBLMS and just found Mark John's cover and maybe in low key celebration of International Women's Day, I thought I'd share this sick cover.
The track is super complimentary to her voice and I think this is a great cover. Also the art!!!!!
Stream below via Soundcloud and note that it's available for free download.
Also check out the YouTube video for the song.
As someone who listens to a wide variety of rap artists and styles, I was immediately intrigued by this interview exploring race within rap.
It also helped to see Mac Miller was involved, that was the only clickbait I needed if we’re being honest.
The Fader’s Matthew Trammell brings readers a compelling conversation between rap artists Mac Miller and Vince Staples.
The two focus on the topic of race within rap, the evolution of white rappers, relating to listeners, support (or the lack thereof?) from the artist’s corresponding racial community, typical “types of white rappers”, to recognizing the roots of rap music and how those artists and styles come into modern rap nowadays.
Both Vince and Mac appreciate each other as peers and take a very realistic, unbiased, matter-of-fact stance on all of these issues.
They recognize areas where either they, their racial communities, or both excel or could use some reflection and improvement.
