BRAND NEW LYRIC VIDEO
‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE 
“OUR FAVOURITE SONGS RIGHT NOW!”
“Like the Strokes reborn as Queen super-fans – right down to singer Luke Spiller’s amazingly spot-on Freddie Mercury impression.”

THE STRUTS JOIN CHANCE THE RAPPER, ST VINCENT, NINE INCH NAILS, & SELENA GOMEZ IN TODAY’S ROLLING STONE PLAYLIST

Acclaimed UK rock band The Struts today announce a very exclusive headline show at The Garage in London, in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’. Taking place on Monday 18th September it’s going to be the hottest ticket in town as the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play an intimate venue, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

Having just played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and today been included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s Playlist alongside some of the biggest names in music, The Struts meteoric rise continues a-pace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The newly-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.

The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang magazine devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “’One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock”.

Classic Rock claim, “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal singalongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have been hailing the genius of the new single.

The Struts are
Luke Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).

PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN | NEW Trailer released! | #MarstonMovie

IMG_9427

Annapurna Pictures has just released the first trailer for PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN! In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. The film is directed by Angela Robinson and stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton.

SYNOPSIS: In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

NEW MUSIC: THE SCRIPT | “Rain” Music Video | #music #thescript

IMG_9420

For those of you who don’t know me personally, I’m a HUGE fan of The Script. I met them at a show here in Miami a few years ago with my friend (Thanks, Keisha!) and they were absolutely incredible. I had already been a fan of their music, but the way they were with their fans made me love them even more . . . not to mention that they’re Irish, which automatically makes them awesome! lol.

I’ve seen them live 3 times now and I’m hoping they make a stop in South Florida again for their next tour. Believe me, seeing them live is so worth it!

Here is the new music video for “Rain” that was released this weekend! I’m kinda digging the dance vibe they have going on here. Lyrically, The Script is always on point, so I don’t mind them experimenting with new sounds like I do with some others haha.

Check it out and let me know what you think!
