Ah winter break. Congratulate yourself on making it through the fall semester. As a senior entering your final stretch, or a freshman with your first semester under your belt, winter break has been a much needed chance to re-energize and chill out before the start of the new semester. But by the third week of break you might have started to feel bored caught up on all of the fall season’s best TV shows and your Netflix favorites. You’re maxed out on family-bonding, and you’ve probably even started listening to local radio again. But worry not, the Pace Press has got you covered with new music to keep you going from now into the spring semester.
Bring Me the Horizon:
Ring a bell? Whether you remember this band from your high school days or are hearing the name for the first time, you won’t regret getting into the spirit. The band’s sophomore album, “That’s the Spirit!” is the perfect album to keep you going. There is not a song on the album that we disliked, so don’t worry about skip limits. Whether at work, working out, cleaning or whatever else you may be spirit is the perfect background music. Even if you’re not a fan of metal or rock there is something to love. Tracks to keep an ear open for are “Throne”, “Doomed”, and ballad “Follow You”.
It’s lit fam. For all the hip-hop lovers out there let me present to you G-Eazy. The Oakland, California-native rapper brings his bay area swagger to his lyrics and is comparable to rapper Big Sean in delivery and tone. Perfect for all your kickbacks, house parties, or just a solo session with your headphones. His latest album, “When It’s Dark Out”, features collaborations with a variety of artist like Chris brown, A$AP Ferg, and a few upcoming artists. G-Eazy will be in NYC at the end of month on his current tour with A$AP. For more check out his self-titled website: G-eazy.com. His video diaries are definitely something worth checking out!
Recently the Press had the pleasure of attending the band’s headline show at the studio at Webster hall. This local Brooklyn based duo is special to the University, as the band’s lead singer, Dani Bouchard, is an alum!
With a sound folk reminiscent of artist like American Authors, Mumford and Sons. What captivates you about their sound is the feel good quality and rawness of their lyrics. These qualities make their songs the perfect soundtrack after a long day when you want to get lost for a while, or just chilling out with friends. They’ve recently released a new song and music video on the band’s YouTube page and there Ep, “Wish You Were Here” is currently available on iTunes.
When you’re cramming into Terminal 5 to see their sold out show remember who put you onto Weathers. The California based band was a crowd favorite when the opened for Oh Honey at a Webster Hall show. Though they have yet to release their music, honorable mentions were in order. If you like bands like Bad Suns and The neighborhood, you will love this band.
