The Swedish boys of Poplöst have released a new single. These talented lads light up the crowds with their pop-enthusiasm on stage. Their music has a playful feel, delivering sing-a-long tunes, and has matured with this latest single, “Vita Snittet” (now available on Spotify and iTunes). The song takes us back. Enjoy.

And, do like Markus, CEO of Emues. Head to the ocean with Poplöst in your ears.

We have been following BOA, a band registered on Emues.com, with excitement as they have released new tunes, remixes and videos during the past year, filled with pure Gothenburg-pop. Today, the band releases a new EP, which they explain as: 

Something old, something new, something borrowed and a studio on the Swedish country side. 

This new EP, “Time Flies”, contains three songs that are all charactarized by a vintage or “retro” feel. The first track, Played My Part, can be listened to through Soundcloud below: 

BOA is Orsi Toró (vocals), Botond Bokor (guitar), Attila Bokor (guitar), Olof Gadd (bass), William Seidl (drums) and you can find them online through their website and Facebook. You can of course suggest a gig with the band through Emues as well, and get BOA booked at a venue near you. 

What’s Trending? You Decide!

What'sTrending

We’ve got Billboard charts, top 10 lists, and personal favorites, and as people become more social media savvy, we’ve also got the popular-by-demand in  social cyber space: what’s trending. What’s talked about on Twitter in multiple 140 character posts is being followed by individuals, companies, institutions and organizations everywhere .

It seems, we’ve just got to tap into the most popular hashtag.

So when it comes to music, I’ve tried to figure out what’s trending at the moment. However, the more I’ve looked, a lot of it doesn’t seem applicable for what I would tweet about in regards to favorite stories, new music, bands and more. For example, Fuse, part of the Madison Square Garden Company, has launched a tv show featuring the daily top 10 stories of what’s trending, using their special heat  tracker of what’s popular on Twitter. As I check it out today, stories range from Demi Lovato becoming Barbie, Rihanna selling out shows and one of the Jonas Brothers hosting the Miss USA pageant. I am glad a lot of this slips my radar on Twitter, as these top 10 trending stories aren’t of interest to me. Instead, trending music stories should be relevant to the people reading them.

In April, Twitter launched their trending #music site and iPhone app, a service to socially find popular tunes from Twitter. It also allows you to listen to music that the people and artists you follow have shared (the service is currently available in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand). This seems to be a step in the right direction – your friends, your fans, your favorite artists under one umbrella.

What’s trending online is multiple voices talking about the same thing, and at times, the real voice of the people does break through the media buzz.

The fascinating thing about social media is the ability to connect with like-minded people, wherever you are in the world, and create a storm together.

Becoming an online tribe is an important step in breaking through, and that’s what’s fun about social media – it’s more about togetherness for success, rather than individualism. There are several fabulous tools online to connect with those you share an interest with, and it is an incredibly uplifting way to engage yourself socially. You can decide what’s trending in your world and work together to make things happen.

What I’d like to see is people coming together to create their unforgettable live music events. I don’t want a trending list to tell people what bands to follow and what music to listen too. Music is an individual experience, but often we share it with so many other people too (sometimes without knowing it). When artists connect with their fans online, anything is possible – and you don’t have to be thousands of people to create something amazing. What I hope to see is people taking charge of their experiences, shaping them, rather than becoming submissive to popular culture. From online interaction we can create fantastic live music events – created, shaped, decided by the people.

Real people with real experiences, because virtual just isn’t as much fun.

With Emues, that’s possible, it’s just your creativity that’s the limit.

THIS IS HEAD – PARTY FOR THE RELEASE OF “THE ALBUM ID”

photo-27

This Is Head recently returned from a Toronto-NYC tour, just to host a release party for their second album The Album ID. The new album has already been praised by multiple reviewers around the globe and described as stronger, refined, more direct and an amplified version of their first album.  What we like about This Is Head is their ability to recreate the experimental depth from their recordings when playing live. At the release party in Malmö, Sweden yesterday, Danish friends Ring Them Bells supported, with their intense noise rock. We were glad to celebrate This Is Head’s launch of The Album ID and hope to see these Swedes go global this year.

P.S. This Is Head is on Emues.
