A R I Z O N A – ‘Freaking Out’

I love this band so much and they just seem to go from strength to strength with their infectious brand of epic, house-inspired pop music.

The track just builds and builds perfectly – I can see people dancing like mad in a stadium.

The song was released as part of a double A-side single, COLD NIGHTS // SUMMER DAYS. It’s been a couple of years since the band’s debut album but hopefully this signals an upcoming, second album.

This song is also featured on my ‘Save A Life’ playlist. In the few days since it’s release, I’ve had it on repeat and it’s really helped me let loose.


‘Freaking Out’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/freaking-out/1406503425?i=1406503440



Andreas Wijk – ‘MADONNA’

Known on YouTube for doing some covers and notable for being a fashion model, this appears to be one of the first couple of original singles from Andreas Wijk.

The single’s cover caught my eye first with the artist recreating some classic Madonna album covers, but when I checked out the track, was instantly gripped.

The singer’s falsetto vocals stand out stunningly over the fairly relaxed beat but the chorus is damn catchy and even got some sexy vibes going on.

No music video exists yet but we’ll keep you updated when one emerges.


‘MADONNA’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/madonna/1400557925?i=1400558686

Having just released their debut album, ‘GALLERY’, I had the privilege of talking to the fantastic, A R I Z O N A.

During our interview, the guys discussed their debut album, their favourite track on the album, who they’d like to cover one of their songs and in true Muzik Speaks tradition, we played a game of ‘Would You Rather…?’ It’s all in the interview video below!

I want to say a massive thanks to Harriet Brampton, Jake Posner and Geneva Gamblin for making this interview happen! Thanks guys 🙂

#MellowMonday: A R I Z O N A – ‘Electric Touch’

Instagram


A R I Z O N A are an incredible electro-pop band, who have over 200 million streams on Spotify, to date, and over 9 million monthly listeners, and signed to Atlantic Records just over 12 months ago.

They just dropped their latest single, ‘Electric Touch’ and it’s beautiful. A modern-day love song, crafted perfectly, with a little help from singer and songwriter, Julia Michaels.

Not only in the song incredible, but the music video is too – it is a moving video, starring a true-life young gay couple, and tells their story throughout. The couple contacted the band, asking for a short message, but in turn the band decided to honour them in a music video. It’s a real must-see, so check it out below.

In relation to the video, Hailee Ritcey (one of the two main characters in the story) shared the following on social media:

“For a long time this day has filled me with so much fear and anxiety. I’ve never been really sure what I would say, why I felt like I needed to post, or why it even mattered at all. It’s taken me a long time to come to this level of confidence with myself and with my relationship. I have been so lucky to have wonderful family and friends that have really helped me to this point. And I’ve realized the people that truly love and care about you always will, regardless. So a few months ago Carly and I took a trip to Seattle to see one of our favorite bands. Because their music means so much to us I decided to reach out to them. I knew it was a long shot to even get a response but then they took it one step further. They asked us to tell our story through their music. So this is my girlfriend. And this is A R I Z O N A. Thank you A R I Z O N A for creating this incredible opportunity for us and thank you for your music. So much love!”

#MellowMonday: A R I Z O N A – ‘Oceans Away’

We’ve featured the American trio, A R I Z O N A before and damn it, we’re going to do it again! ‘Oceans Away’ is the most recent track to be released by the songwriter/producers and it’s as encapsulating as all of their other releases.

I love the sound of this track, and indeed the band, because they fuse the softer side of rock with the more contemporary sounds of pop, topped off with almost house-like beats. It’s virtually genre-less but it doesn’t matter; it’s damn catchy and their sound fills the listener with intrigue and admiration.

I know that the band are currently hard at work on their debut album, but in my opinion, it cannot come quick enough!

No video has been made as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted on this!

A R I Z O N A are a band that begun in New Jersey and consist of three members. There is a distinct lack of information about the trio online, but this song has definitely captured my attention!

‘Where I Wanna Be’ is one of their most notable singles so far and has been featured on several YouTube channels and Spotify playlists.

If this song is anything to go by, their album looks set to be amazing! I can’t wait to hear more – go check out their other songs on YouTube.
