sleeping with sirens 2019

Sleeping With Sirens are back for the first time since their 2019 album How It Feels To Be Lost with “Bloody Knuckles.” The rapid-fire, heavy-hitting ballad is a defiant anthem about forging your own path when the people in your life insist on your demise.  Reminiscent of their heavier roots evident on their 2019 release […]

DJ Khaled’s brand is excess, opulence, and over-the-top enthusiasm. For the better part of two decades, the man born Khaled Khaled has been rounding up as many famous rappers, singers, and producers as he can, piling them onto XXXL pop-rap songs laser-targeted at radio, and shouting various catchphrases on top of them at maximum volume. This sometimes results in pump-you-up classics like “We Takin’ Over” and “I’m On One” and “All I Do Is Win,” modern-day jock jams guaranteed to send your average millennial’s adrenaline surging. In recent years the formula has led to a bloated pantomime of triumphant lavish living — songs that sound the way overpriced liquor bottles in the VIP section probably taste (which I hear is underwhelming, though I can’t speak from experience). Khaled is a blockbuster franchise unto himself: one that keeps roping in more and more impressive names, and one that can’t really descend into self-parody because this man has always been a living caricature.

Romanian-born and Florida-based frontman Dacian Miron has recruited Sleeping With Sirens vocalist Kellin Quinn for the release of his new single “Call It A Hustle, Sweetheart.” The electro-rock-powered emo track will appear on Miron’s debut EP Slightly Mysterious, Somewhat Delirious (produced by Kevin Lankford). The new EP will officially be released April 23rd, but right now, fans can stream it exclusively on Spotify. “Call It A Hustle, Sweetheart” is a song about being looked down upon and treated worse for not being part of a particular clique. The fear of not being able to express who you are because you might be labeled an outcast. “This sends the message that you should NEVER have to change for anyone just so you can blend in,” says Miron. “If you are happy with yourself, at the end of the day that’s all that matters, no one can take that away from you. The song conveys the anger that stems from being treated that way, and fighting back, showing that at the end of the day anything could be made possible. And Kellin took the song to a whole different place.“ For more, go to: TheGirlsAtTheRockShow.com (Source)
