15 Songs From January ’15 You HAVE To Hear

Can you believe the first month of 2015 is already over? Feels like it was only last week we were kissing Christmas goodbye and ringing in the New Year with our favorite Must Hear Artists.

Planet Stereo’s rounded up the top 15 of January 2015. You’ve gotta check these out:

 

1. All Time Low – “Something’s Gotta Give”

The band’s first single from their upcoming album, Future Hearts. It’s catchy, full of fun, and the video has a plot twist.

2. Sleeping With Sirens – “Go Go Go”

Electrifying, energetic track, with a funny as Hell video. Let this be a reminder to wave at the people who spin the signs or have to wear silly costumes on streets as advertising.

3. Alec Chambers – “Whole Again”

The 19-year-old’s single has been making waves all month with a ridiculously catchy chorus and pure pop style.

4. Enter Shikari – “Anaethetist”

Entrancing in sound, as well as visually. Stemming from the band’s album, Mindsweep, which came out earlier this month.

5. Kids – “Second Star On The Right”

Who doesn’t love a good Peter Pan reference? This track will certainly make you want to return to Neverland to become a Lost Boy.

6. Hannah Gill – “I Feel Awake”

Finding out that Hannah Gill is seventeen makes your jaw drop when you hear her soulful vocals.

7. Fall Out Boy – “The Kids Aren’t Alright”

My favorite track from their latest album, American Beauty / American Psycho. It’s got an incredibly sophisticated sound, while still maintaining the lovable pop-punk style of FOB.

8. As It Is – “Dial Tones”

The band’s label debut, and it sounds awesome. With pure emotion in every line, As It Is prove that they are definitely one to watch by showcasing their immense talent.

9. The Rocketboys – “Viva Voce”

The incredible single that you heard on the final season premiere of Glee. Yes, you read that right, on Glee.

10. Real Friends – “Summer”

For those of us who are so sick of the winter weather and want the blistering heat of the summer back, listen to this tune, and dream of sunnier days ahead.

11. Gerard Way – “Don’t Try”

Ah, the relief of hearing Gerard Way singing through your speakers once again. Is there no greater joy?

12. The Downtown Fiction – “Don’t Count Me Out”

Rhythmic, catchy new single from The Downtown Fiction’s album, Losers & Kings, which is out now. Bonus points for the intro begin filmed in Orlando!

13. Nathan Angelo – “Carolina Save Me”

Stemming from the singer-songwriter’s upcoming Carolina EP, there is a country twang to this single that will make you melt….and maybe miss summer even more.

14. Greg Holden – “Hold On Tight”

A beautiful new track from the singer/songwriter…But am I the only one to notice the play on words here? (Holden – Hold On)

15. Wild Party – “Outright”

If you’re looking for a new indie-rock tune to dance to for the rest of the year, this may have to be it.

 

Honorable Mentions:

Martin Callingham – “Knots”

Wildhart – “Stuck In a Second”

Kelly Clarkson – “Heartbeat Song”

Summer Scouts – “Facepaint”

Spencer Sutherland – “Nothing Can Hurt Me”

The Heydaze – “Don Juan”

The National Parks – “Helsinki”

VIDEO: Wild Party – “OutRight”

wild party

 

The San Antonio four-piece Wild Party premiered their new music video for “OutRight” today via VEVO, as well as announcing a North American tour supporting Catfish and The Bottleman.

“OutRight” is the latest song from the band’s album, Phantom Pop, which is available on iTunes. You can view the video, directed by guitarist Lucas Hughes, below.

Comrpised of Lincoln Kreifels (vox), Lucas Hughes (guitar), Ethan Kauffman (bass), and Cary LaScale (drums), Wild Party is still a young band, but they have already been around the block and across the pond. Thrust into the spotlight early in their career, the band was offered a gig to support The Wombats on tour across the UK in 2010. Only 19 at the time, frontman Lincoln Kreifels had only played two previous live shows before the whirlwind UK tour.
John Kennedy of UK’s Xfm radio picked up the band’s single “Take My Advice” and broadcast it over the air to millions of listeners. Suddenly, without label support, and with nothing but a “can-do” attitude, Wild Party seized the moment and took a DIY approach to create/promote their debut album; first releasing a music video for “When I Get Older” on YouTube in January 2014 and soon after, debuting a collection of songs on iTunes that they self-recorded and produced under the title, Phantom Pop. Within 24 hours of its release, Phantom Pop cracked the iTunes Top 100 and music journalists, would-be managers and hopeful record labels swiftly came knocking at their door.
Wild Party was among the nominees in the 2014 Macy’s iHeartRadio competition and has toured with Andrew McMahon, Bears Hands, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Lights.
