Shawn Mendes has released his most vulnerable single to date with the release of his single “Wonder“. In just 12 hours since its release the music video has been watched 2.8M times on YouTube. As Mendes continues to grow up in the public eye, so does his music. The track takes on a more vulnerable and emotionally charged feel while embracing his alt-pop leaning nature. The full length album by the same name will be released on December 4th. Pre-order here.
The Hunna seem to be one of the most underrated rock bands of recent years. While they’re massive in the UK, they are still on the up and up in the US. Their newest album I’d Rather Die Than Let You In could be the turning point for the trio. This record was produced by industry icon John Feldmann. Through the record the band tackles love, loss, and their label issues that threatened to derail their hard work. Listen to the title track on our New Impressions playlist.
Mikey Ferrari released the second single from his debut EP Spaceboy. The single “Lunar Light” follows the release of “moving slow”. In the same vein of Shawn Mendes’ release, Ferrari touches on personal growth and exploring emotional deficits that led to damaged relationships and friendships. The track takes it on with a lush melody that feels transcendental throughout the chorus. The song was written Tony Davia of Younger Hunger.
“When I wrote ‘lunar light’ I was in a weird spot in my life. I was reflecting upon past relationships and I started to think about the hypocrisy of many of the sorrys that I had said in the past. At the time, I was making a lot of mistakes and just expecting people to forgive me.” Stream “Lunar Light” on our New Impressions playlist and gear up for the rest of the Spaceboy EP.
There are plenty of other exciting releases to get you through this weekend. There’s a new full length from LANY titled Mama’s Boy. The track “bad news” was added to the New Impressions playlist. Other additions to the playlist this week include songs from Wallows, Ella Mai, The Vamps, Why Don’t We, and Anna of the North.
