Welcome 2 Bubblegum Grunge | “Probably Crying” by Girl Wilde

LA Recording Artist, Girl Wilde, Releases New Single,
“Probably Crying”

Probably Crying by Girl Wilde - BRASH! Magazine Blog

Los Angeles based pop-rocker Girl Wilde is back today with the release of “Probably Crying,” the first single off her upcoming debut EP. Packed with 90s-inspired alt-rock instrumentals and vibrant pop melodies, “Probably Crying” is another heavy hitting track from the emerging ‘bubblegum grunge’ artist.

On the meaning of the new single, Girl Wilde writes that “‘Probably Crying’ is about owning my emotional tendencies and trying to figure out where they come from.” She continues to explain that “growing up I was deemed ‘overemotional’ (I can be). Like everyone else I have my own unique traumas, and working through them has been pretty painful. There was a certain time in my life when I could only muster the energy to cry. My expectations for what life should be didn’t leave room for me to experience reality, and when I did, it almost seemed to hurt worse. I didn’t have the patience, or distance from my own emotions.”

“Probably Crying” is Available Now on Apple Music & Spotify!

Summer Jams! | “Saucy” by Keith Jacobs

R&B New-Comer, Keith Jacobs, Releases New Single, “Saucy”

Hip-Hop may still dominate the current Billboard Charts, but every now and again we are introduced to a R&B artist who has the perfect tone, style, and groove that becomes the promise of stardom. Keith Jacobs is that artist. His current single, “Saucy” from his forthcoming still untitled disc, due October 18th is already creating national attention with becoming “that song” at your favorite radio station. KEITH offers a throwback style of music which has been missing from the airwaves as of late.

Saucy by Keith Jacobs“The ladies have found them a new summer jam,” says Keisha Nicole at KBXX in Houston. “Keith’s new single “Saucy”, is sensual yet catchy,” she adds. Built on the energy of a simple guitar line, the melodies evolve to present an entrancing layered landscape where you can swim in a simple moment. At this moment you sink into the depths and all the elaborate iterations that can come when you are in search of all the flavors and depths of life and it’s passions. The Sauce of Life.

“Saucy” is Available Now on Apple Music, Spotify, & GooglePlay!

Keith Jacobs, a Houston, Texas native and a graduate of famed HBCU institution, Southern University in Baton Rouge LA. His love of music would later afford him to cross paths with another Texas native, famed music producer Jean-Robert Redwine (Chris Brown, G-Easy, Mario, Ludacris, Zendaya, Tinashe). Together through Redwine’s custom imprint, Redwine Music, the creation of “Saucy” came to fruition.

Keith is an artist that truly and genuinely embodies the energy of an era where R&B reigned supreme, says mega producer and label head Jean-Robert. “Keith is a modern evolution of the best feelings we grew up listening to and all the musicality it took to capture those classic feeling in our lives.”

“Saucy” continues to thrive at national radio and streaming platforms and has placed Keith in the path of success in the ever-growing business of music.

Saucy is a vibe and just the tip of the iceberg. I am excited about this release mostly because I can feel a shift of music and I want to be at the forefront of this change. – Keith Jacobs

Keith Jacobs brings his “SAUCY” talents to his hometown of Houston, TX with a performance at The House of Blues on June 26th and he makes his Essence Music Festival debut on Saturday, July 6th at the House of Blues in New Orleans.

With the release of his debut EP, Still Tippin’, Keith Jacobs shares his emotions and wants us to trust him with ours. Musically inspired by Diddy, Ryan Leslie and The Dream, Still Tippin’ takes us on an impulsive and melodic ride.

Fear of Letting Go | “Heavy Waters” by Yianna

Yianna Releases Alt-R&B Sophomore Single,
“Heavy Waters”

New York-based songstress Yianna is back today with the release of her second single, “Heavy Waters,” the follow up to her stunning late 2018 debut, “Ordinary Love.” Drawing influences from alt-rock, pop, R&B and soul, Yianna creates music that is completely unrestricted by traditional genre boundaries.

Heavy Waters by Yianna - BRASH! Magazine Blog

Heavy Waters is about knowing that the relationship you’re in isn’t working and you’re not going anywhere with this person. You know you should leave, but you can’t or you’re afraid for one reason or another. – Yianna

“Heavy Waters” is Available Now on Major Music Streaming Platforms!

About Yianna
There is a raw vulnerability to Yianna’s music that is wise beyond her years; she taps into a soulful energy that is often absent from today’s mainstream hits. Marked by sultry vocals, laidback R&B stylings, and catchy melodies, Yianna’s music takes the listener on a uniquely picturesque journey with each and every track.

When she was just 18, Yianna dropped out of college to pursue music. She knew little of the music industry, songwriting or production, but she had the drive to become an artist. After trying her hand at it and extensively gigging around the tristate area in various coffee shops and subway stations (all under fake names since she didn’t want anybody to know her identity), Yianna believed maybe it was time to move on and started applying to a military program. Before committing to her new career bath she was urged by those close to her to give music one last try. Feeling more encouraged than ever she dove head-first into writing her own songs… and now here she is today with two glittery singles under her belt and plenty more music on the way.

Summer Love | “10K Summer Nights” by Eighty Ninety

Indie-Pop Duo Eighty Ninety Are Back With New Single “10K Summer Nights”

10K Summer Nights by Eighty Ninety Brooklyn-based indie-pop act Eighty Ninety are returning with their first single of the year, “10K Summer Nights,”. Fusing their minimalist production with intimate lyricism and laidback melodies, the new single is a delicate yet striking record about young, hopelessly romantic love. “10K Summer Nights” kicks off a new phase for Eighty Ninety as they head towards the release of their highly-anticipated sophomore EP, set for a release later this summer.

Eighty Ninety is the project of two brothers, Abner (vocals, production) and Harper (guitar, production). They chose the name Eighty Ninety for the band as they felt it wouldn’t box them into a particular genre or sound, but called to mind everything from decades and eras of music that influence them, to speed limits, radio stations and liquor proofs.

Stream “10K Summer Nights” Now on Apple Music, Amazon, & Spotify!

Their break out single, “Three Thirty” was an instant success, catapulting to #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts. “Three Thirty” was followed by their debut EP Elizabeth, which was supported heavily by Spotify and tastemakers alike. The brothers returned at the end of 2017 with “Your Favorite Song,” which was also remixed by Island Record’s budding electro-pop duo, Loote. To date, the duo have racked up over 22 million Spotify streams and have received praise from Alternative Press, Huffington Post, Galore, LADYGUNN and Ones To Watch, just to name a few.

Indie pop duo, Eighty Ninety

The past year has been momentous for the indie-pop brothers: they opened for Des Rocs in Brooklyn, toured the East Coast with Savoir Adore, made their SXSW (2018) debut, and even received the stamp of approval from Taylor Swift when she added their single “Your Favorite Song” to her “Songs Taylor Loves” Spotify playlist.

With a recently inked deal with Hard 8 Working Group (home to Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, CYN) and a brand new selection of music on the way, Eighty Ninety are a name to keep on your radar.
