Rapper, model, visual artist. What doesn’t Swedish-Tamil star, Tommy Genesis, do? And the obsession level is high for her latest pulsing track “100 Bad” – which involves some very saucy self-directed visuals. Think puppies galore (yes!), a bed of tampons and champagne rain. Too good.
The songs we’ve got on repeat this week.
Tommy Genesis – “100 Bad”
King Krule – “Biscuit Town”
South London’s moodiest redhead is back infiltrating our sound waves, as well as the visuals for “Biscuit Town”, the lead single from his latest album, The OOZ. The atmospheric noir-style video (typewriters, curling cigarette smoke and whisky, obvs) perfectly accompanies Krule’s scowling stream-of-consciousness vocals.
BTS – “IDOL”
If you can hear above the deafening screams of their lay-down-in-incoming-traffic dedicated fans, you might have noticed that BTS have released the trippy visuals for “IDOL” – aka “the fastest video to reach 100M views in 2018.” Damn. Taken off their compilation album, Love Yourself: Answer, the track is bolshy, heavily-layered Korean pop, with energy to spare.
Panic! At The Disco – “High Hopes”
Brendon Urie has his sights set on the top floor of a skyscraper. So naturally, the only way up is Matrix-style vertical traipsing right up the side of the building. So go the visuals for the emo kings’ latest track – all upbeat pop-rock with cheeky horns. Excuse us while we revert to back to our 00s fan-girl selves.
Trove Sivan – Bloom
Happy Bloom day, y’all! That’s right. Austraya’s finest export and dreamy Wonderbabe Troye Sivan has launched his second studio album, Bloom, today – and naturally, the internet has gone apeshit. Choc full of perfect 80s-influenced pop tracks “My My My”, “Bloom”, “Dance To This” (with queen Ariana Grande), and dreamy ballad “Animal”, please excuse us while we stan.
