The Japanese House drop another raw, dreamy-pop tune

Ahead of the release of her forthcoming album, ‘Good At Falling’ on March 1st, The Japanese House have released ‘We Talk All The Time’. Speaking about the gorgeous track, Amber said:

It’s about noticing a relationship dying, or changing, whatever way you want to view it. It was one of those weird, prophetic songs where I write it down, and then it happens in real life. It’s not because I can tell the future, it’s because I’m creating it, or maybe I can sense it’s going to happen.

Post Malone took to the GRAMMY stage

We didn’t know we needed a Posty x RHCP collab until it happened in front of our eyes. Post’s suit game was also STRONG.

The Amazons release the riff-roaring ‘Mother’

Reading natives, The Amazons have released a huge, riff-busting new single taken from their upcoming album due later this year. ‘Mother’ is about challenging friends, gods and everyone in between – we’re INTO it.
