California – Blink 182

California – Blink 182

Blink-182 shook up the pop-punk stratosphere when founding member Tom DeLonge left the group in early 2015. What could have very well marked the end for a band already living on their new lease on life, remaining members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker found second […]

Planetary – Crash The Party

Planetary – Crash The Party

Ian Reibeisen and Chris Weiss met when they were kids back at tennis camp. Ian overheard Chris strumming the tune to Oasis’s “Wonderwall,” one of his favorite songs, and went over and started singing with him. That was the beginning of an inseparable bond that […]

Night Sports – 3OH!3

Night Sports – 3OH!3

It’s been over a decade since we were first introduced to the bold, energetic, and let’s be honest, slightly inappropriate pop duo that is, 3OH!3. Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte formed 3OH!3 back in 2004, and have been killing the electric pop game ever since. […]

Mind of Mine – Zayn

Mind of Mine – Zayn

Taking One For The Team – Simple Plan

Taking One For The Team – Simple Plan

With their fifth studio album, Taking One for the Team, Simple Plan fuses their signature pop punk sounds with R&B influences to create a masterpiece that evokes both nostalgia and novelty with every track. The French Canadian band collaborated with electronic music group 3OH!3 to […]
