In the early 90s, the British house music project Nightcrawlers was formed. The group began their music journey as more of a soul and funk-influenced pop act and featured vocalist John Reid (who had some local success as a DJ and vocalist with a number of other acts in the late 1980s). After quite a hiatus, the Nightcrawlers recently returned in collaboration with Majestic dropping the track “Losing My Mind.” Take a listen – and if you’re really music savvy, you’ll also recognize a familiar beat in the background resembling Robin S – “Show Me Love.” See you on the dancefloor, kweens!
Over the summer, singer-songwriter Greyson Chance released his music video premiere of “Nobody.” “Nobody” explores the MANY post-breakup feelings we all go through when a relationship has ended. The many what if’s – Revenge dating – Dealing with the temptation to go back for one more try, or just for a little bit of company. The track, by, contrast is melodically upbeat, with a light, danceable groove. The soft-focus vibe looks very cool and evocative, as it should be. Give it a watch.
He’s the Aussie actor who made a name for himself in the U.S. after starring in major projects like Love, Simon and The Flash. Now, 29-year-old Keiynan Lonsdale has returned to his first love – DANCE – which is the inspiration for his latest music video for the song “Rhythm & Music.” The video was filmed in Sydney last year after Keiynan finished filming Eden in the NSW Hinterland. Keiynan performs a routine alongside Dance Academy alum Adam Saunders. There are also fantasy-esque scenes interspersed that feature Keiynan in disco-era costuming. And if you thought the video could not get any better – you guessed wrong – because the non-dancing scenes allow the video to lean into its unabashed queerness. It is FIRE!
Singer Demi Lovato celebrated their 29th birthday on August 20th with the release of a new music video for “Melon Cake,” a track from their latest album, Dancing with the Devil… The Art of Starting Over. “Melon Cake” was inspired by Lovato’s less than happy past birthdays. Last year, Lovato revealed on the Ellen Show that previous managers were obsessed with Demi’s diet and appearance, banning all sugar other than once a year on Lovato’s birthday where they allowed a “cake” made from half a watermelon and fat-free whipped cream. These restrictions exasperated a long struggle with bulimia and other eating disorders. With this song, Lovato’s reclaiming their power this birthday with an anthem about escaping from the pressure of expectations and loving yourself for EXACTLY who you are. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE this message.
