Having recently been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Dance Recording for their breakout single, "Drinkee", New York City-based duo SOFI TUKKER, comprised of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, now return today with their new single called "Greed", a vibrant and anthemic dance-punk track that will no doubt resonate with a majority of our us as the pair utilizes activism through art to make a statement on the current state of affairs in today's messy and often sketchy political climate.

"There's a reason we're putting this out on President's Day," the duo says. "'Greed' has been the government’s M.O. this year - and it's not just about one man. This is one of the first times Sophie has ever screamed. Unfortunately, there is a lot to scream about right now."

Listen to "Greed" below.

Premiere via Idolator.

Please listen to each song and if you like what you hear then be sure to give the artist(s) a thumbs up and/or a follow on Facebook/Twitter.

Olivia O'Brien - Empty

Rising 17-year-old Napa Valley-raised, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Olivia O'Brien has just unveiled her latest alt-pop masterpiece called "Empty" along with its accompanying music video shot by director Chandler Lass. Serving as Olivia’s fifth release since her signing to Island Records was announced last August, "Empty" follows "hate u love u", "Trust Issues", "Find What You're Looking For" and "Root Beer Float" (featuring Blackbear) - all of which have accumulated millions of listeners across various streaming platforms.

Speaking on the track, Olivia says:

"I wrote ‘Empty’ when I was at my lowest.I had just moved to LA and was kind of lost in life. I didn't feel like I fit in with my new friends but my old friends were moving on in their lives without me. I let myself wallow in my depression for months, letting it get worse and worse and not telling anyone until I started feeling like every aspect of my life was tragic and hopeless. Finally, when I started writing this song in a studio session I broke down and told the producer how I had been feeling. It was a very emotional day but I came out of it feeling so much better about everything and knowing I had just written my most vulnerable, emotional, and real song yet."

"Empty" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via Nylon.

Taylor Grey - Never Woulda Letcha

Kicking off her sophomore year at Stanford, 19-year-old singer/songwriter Taylor Grey is set to claim 2017 as her breakout year with the release of her debut studio album, Space Case. Inspired by her unwavering devotion to her childhood crush, the albums' highly-anticipated first single, "Never Woulda Letcha" is a radio-ready pop gem embellished with a tantalizing melodic harmony that provides listeners with a romanticized soundtrack to a forsaken love-story. For the song's accompanying music video, Taylor teamed up with prolific, multi-award nominee for MTV's VMA "Best Video with a Social Message" director Sarah McColgan to visually divulge her love story while starring opposite actor, Sean O’Donnell. The video is designed to entice and bring you closer to Taylor as you watch her go through the emotional journey of building up the courage to take a chance and confess her love.

"'Never Woulda Letcha' is about that friend you have a secret crush on. You've known each other forever, you've always been 'just friends,' but you always wanted something more," Taylor says. "The feeling of this song is something I believe most people can relate to. Personally, I always love listening to music that reflects my emotions, so hopefully this song can be that for someone. And a fun song to dance too, as well!"
