12 Days of Brumotions: Fall Out Boy – ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’

On the 4th day of Christmas, Brumotions gave to you…

A Fall Out Boy single review

ab-ap

American Alt-rock band Fall Out Boy are back with their newest and interesting release ‘American Beauty/American Psycho’, which is currently AVAILABLE to download!

The track will be featured on and shares it name with the band’s sixth studio album, which is set for release in the UK on January 19th.

‘American Beauty/American Psycho’ (which is being shortened to AB/AP) is an odd track… to say the least, with an even stranger music video – which we can’t help but like!

“We turned left when everyone expected us to turn right” Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz told Radio One’s Zane Lowe after its first airplay, which we completely agree with!

Although their newest track is slightly similar to a number of the group’s other releases, it does see the lads heading towards a harder and heavier rock route.

Though we’re sure we’ll be playing the track on repeat as it’s an incredibly catchy, punk track from the FOB lads.

Making the announcement on Facebook, the band said:

“the moment where a shadow lets you know where the sun was streaming in. the odd place where light and dark meet. there is a threshold. we all can feel it – it is something palpable… the idea that no matter how much an animal is domesticated – there is something wild in it. declawed but we take/make the best monsters. we semi-civilize them. we put bears in suits on tricycles.

“we keep wolves warm from the winter in hen houses. then we wonder why they maul the hearts of what we hold the most dear. but make no mistake you brought them into your house and thought they could become a pet. we have infiltrated you. now we are inside you like a disease. this is a modern love story – coming together and unraveling all at once….”

Which does help to slightly understand this incredibly strange music video released for the track, though it is still confusing and makes less sense to us with each view.

‘AB/AP’ is the perfect track for Fall Out Boy to debut a new punk sound to their audience as it will no doubt be successful!

The group are an incredible talent, who we believe will reach great success with their newest track and we wish them all the best!

Make sure you take a look of the video below:

AB/AP is currently available to purchase!

OneRepublic – ‘Love Runs Out’

love runs out

American pop-rock band OneRepublic are back with their incredible new track ‘Love Runs Out’, which will be released in the UK on August 3rd.

The track was originally intended to be the first single on the group’s third album Native, but the release was delayed due to the track not having a chorus written. But the wait has been worth it as the track is incredible and released just in time for the Summer!

If you’ve been keeping up to date with our amazing Playlists of the Week, you would’ve seen this incredible track included in a Playlist back in June!

‘Love Runs Out’ is completely different to the incredible tracks that this chart-topping group have released before and yet it’s just as incredible and catchy as those tracks that we’re sure we’ll be blasting it for a while.

The track’s pace reminds us heavily of Kanye West’s track Love Lockdown, however, singer Ryan Tedder brings a touch of uniqueness with his incredible vocals, which makes this track a touch more addictive to listen to it on repeat!

The tune has a minimalistic, 70s rock and soul vibe driving the track with Tedder showcasing the vocal acrobatics that have made the group a popular household name.

Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – ‘Problem’

American pop beaut Ariana Grande has teamed up with the gorgeous Iggy Azalea on her newest and brilliant track ‘Problem’, which features a further collaboration with Big Sean.

Ariana Grande, 21 released the 90s influenced pop track with an urban twist on June 29th here within the UK and is already racing through the charts!

Problem is an incredible track, which mixes Grande’s pop influence with Big Sean and Iggy Azalea’s urban element, about “the feeling of being absolutely terrified to re-approach a relationship that’s gone sour, but you want to more than anything.”

Grande perfectly conveyed the message throughout the lyrics with her immaculate vocals: “Every time you touch me and say you love me, I get a little bit breathless. I shouldn’t want it, but it’s you.”

Embedded image permalink

Problem is to feature on Grande’s upcoming Sophomore studio album ‘My Everything’, which if the current success of the single is anything to go by, it will be racing up the charts very quickly after its release.

Ariana Grande is an incredible, rising young talent with a large number of amazing tracks within her arsenal! And we personally can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Problem is out NOW!

MKTO – ‘Classic’

American duo Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, who together form the group MKTO are FINALLY joining the UK music scene with their amazing track ‘Classic’, which was released here in the UK on June 29th.

The track has been released in a number of countries, including the US over a year ago, but it’s finally popped across the pond after a year and it was well worth the wait!

However, if you’ve been keeping up with our Brumotions Playlist of the Week, this incredibly catchy pop track has featured in our playlist on two separate occasions!

Embedded image permalink

Classic is an amazing, party, pop track with a great beat that is enjoyable to listen to and certainly to sing along to.

Although the lyrics are considerably cheesy, the message stands out among the majority of the tracks that are currently taking over the UK charts.

The lyrics present a feel-good factor for all the ladies (including those here at Brumotions!) as the two handsome lads that make up the group are telling them they’re one of a kind in this era and they’re ‘classic’ ladies, like Marilyn Monroe and that they will treat them like such: “Ima pick you up in a Cadillac, like a gentleman, bringing glamour back. Keep it real, real in the way I feel. I could walk you down the aisle.”

Embedded image permalink

‘Classic’ is the PERFECT debut track that MKTO could have chosen to introduce themselves to a UK audience and we have no doubt that this talent showcasing tune will be entering the UK chart fairly soon and we wish the lads all the best!

MKTO is an incredible, young and fresh group who we believe will have a great career both in the US and here in the UK!

Classic is available NOW!

And if you haven’t already, make sure to check out the track’s amazing music video:

Demi Lovato – ‘Neon Lights’

Demi Lovato is back!

Showcasing her incredible vocal ability and talented writing skills with the release of her amazing new single ‘Neon Lights’, which features and has been re-released off her fourth studio album Demi.

Lovato, who found popularity through various movies on the Disney Channel: ‘Camp Rock’, by starring in ‘Sonny With A Chance’ AND from judging a number of contestants on the X-Factor USA (Including our favourites, Emblem 3!), has released the fourth track from her album on June 15th here in the UK.

Neon Lights is a catchy, upbeat electropop dance track, conveying the message of living in the now as there is no time like the present, along with Lovato’s lifelong belief with self-confidence and ‘doing your own thing’: “Baby, when they look up at the sky. We’ll be shooting stars just passing by, you’ll be coming home with me tonight, we’ll be burning up like neon lights.”

Embedded image permalink

The lyrics showcase Lovato’s impressive vocal ability (remember she is ONLY 21!) and the rave-tastic track gets everyone dancing along. Although the single is being re-released, we have no doubt that this single will be jumping back into the charts very soon!

Demi Lovato is an amazing vocal talent with incredible song writing talent to match! She’s a rising talent who we are sure will be taking over the UK in due time, gaining Lovatics in all of us!

And we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

Neon Lights is out NOW!

You can also see Miss Lovato touring the UK in November, during her support slot for the gorgeous Enrique Iglesias! Which includes a show at the NIA, here in Birmingham on November 27th!
