Greyson Chance On His Rebranding, The Story Behind “Afterlife”, and the US Election

His third and latest single, “Back on the Wall”, has already garnered more than half a million views on YouTube. But more importantly, Greyson Chance is also back on his quest to slay the pop music industry after a hiatus of five long years. Greyson rose to prominence when talkshow host Ellen Degeneres discovered his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on YouTube. Since then, he has been blessed with a bundle of musical opportunities – including a record deal under Ellen herself. Many may still see him as a baby-faced talent who graced the world with his mellifluous, pre-pubescent voice…

Can Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Conquer Summer 2016?

“I’ve made my decision, to test my limits” After a painfully-extended promotional run, pop’ music’s four-octave fave Ariana Grande has finally released her third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman”. The album is preceded by the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You”, along with many other bops that we’ll get to later. The wait for #AG3 could have been a lot shorter. After scrapping 2015’s “Focus” over online criticism about it sounding too similar to her 2014 Iggy Azalea collab “Problem”, Ariana took a few months off to realign her chakras, lick some donuts, and post more cryptic tweets, Snapchats, and Instagrams as punishment for our audacity…

Sweet and Sated: 7 Questions with The Maine’s Garrett Nickelsen

Their latest project is “Covers (Side B)”, an album of music covers that serves as a counterpart to last year’s “Covers (Side A)” EP.

Copeland Live In Singapore: A Triumphant Return

The lights fell sharply across each face as a swelling crowd of voices sang along to Copeland’s endearing number “Coffee”. It was an incredibly intimate moment and the slightly-older-than-young-adult crowd cheered as the first chorus ended. Last week’s gig at TAB Singapore marked Copeland’s fourth time playing in Singapore, and their first since reuniting in 2014. In a live environment, their songs bear a different weight, somehow transforming into something new like a flower’s blossom. The resulting sound is a solemn affair that melds softly together at the edges, evoking emotions that are almost tangible. It’s not difficult to close your eyes and…

Photos by Jovi Ho for DANamic.ORG Emo music hit its heyday in the 2000s and at that time, Copeland enjoyed a modest amount of attention for their songs about love and relationships. Back then, everyone (well, all the cool people at least) was burning “Priceless” on mixtape CDs for that one special person. Comprising Aaron Marsh (vocals), Jonathan Bucklew (drums), and brothers Bryan and Stephen Laurenson (lead and rhythm guitars respectively), the band had recorded 5 albums and 3 EPs before their break-up in 2010. Four years later, the band have decided to reunite and have another crack at it. While their new album…
