Wow, I’m a huge fan of Conor Maynard and I am pleasantly surprised with the direction of his new single, “R U Crazy”. The beginning gives me JT vibes (in his current 20/20 Experience style), but then busts into this hip-hop dance vibe that’s completely different than what you would expect all the while being awesome. Girls had their break-up anthem with Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Conor’s “R U Crazy” strikes me as the guy version. Of course, us girls can still relate to this one and we’ll be dancing our way through it. I love it and you probably will to. Take a look above!
Since I’ve been on a British kick, I thought we’d continue by posting this video from Conor Maynard. At first glance most would compare him to Justin Bieber and if they are saying new Bieber then I guess that fits a bit. But he also has some influence from JT and Chris Brown for sure. His song, “Can’t Say No” is heating up the UK charts, so I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from him in the US soon. Check out the video above.
Check out “Don’t Stop” by Electric Touch, the rock band from Austin, TX. Interestingly enough, their lead singer is British (originally from Nottingham), but relocated to Texas where he met the rest of the band. These guys have toured with The Bravery (<3) and Airborne Toxic Event and have played Coachella, Bonnaroo, SXSW, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits festival among other renowned music festivals. So why haven’t we heard more about these guys?? I honestly don’t know how they have been floating under the radar. Their vibe is similar to The Killers, The Bravery and maybe a twinge of Oasis. Don’t miss out on Electric Touch, watch the video above and discover a new awesome band.
