Worlds collide as two major IHM favorites come together on this booming, bristling treat of a remix. Marian Hill, who’ve recently achieved new heights of adored success after all the exposure their dynamic single Down was featured on that unforgettable Apple Airpods commercial, have remixed young pop wunderkind Billie Eilish’s recent single Bellyache. It’s like they’ve given the track the “Down” treatment as it swells, burbles, buckles, and swerves. Perhaps its high time they did an Apple Airpods commercial 2.0. I’d enjoy seeing the commercial and hearing this remix on TV everyday even though I have an Android phone. This bass propulsive, future flickering twist on the original can be purchased from iTunes.
We must have done something right this month. Not only have we been blessed with new Billie Eilish gem watch, but the young pop sensation has now returned with another new song, COPYCAT, as well as unleashed upon us news of her debut EP. “don’t smile at me” drops worldwide on August 11th via Darkroom / Interscope, and it could easily be one of the most highly anticipated EPs of the year. New song COPYCAT is a dark shadowy brooder much different from early songs like Ocean Eyes. It bristles and seethes, haunts and prowls, just like a cat hunting for prey, save for abeautifully melancholic bridge. We’ll be awaiting that EP. In the meantime, re-visit the pop phenom’s catalog of music on Soundcloud, here.
Some of you might recall Julia Michaels’ husky simmering, sultry alluring voice from Kygo’s album, Cloud Nine, on which she lent her vocals to sparkling lifter Carry Me. What most people likely don’t know is that this gifted Los Angeles musician also lent her songwriting talent to a bevy of smash hits like Justin Bieber’s Sorry, Selena Gomez’s Good For You, Hailee Steinfeld’s Love Myself, Gwen Stefani’s Used To Love You, Britney Spears’ Slumber Party, and far, far more. The hit maker, now signed to Republic, targets her own solo career as she unleashes a pop jewel named Issues. The debut single, produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate, is a slick spacious electronic pop confection in which hints of Kiiara and Terror Jr can be found in its buoyant beats and voluminous spread. The industry is abuzz over a forthcoming Julia Michaels album. The rising starlet was even featured on Forbes’ 30 under 30 list.
