The Spotlight

youngrisingsons_watermark_500

By Alan Ho

Who:  Young Rising Sons
Where:  Red Bank, NJ
For fans of:  Fun., One Republic, Young the Giant

Working their way up to the big leagues, New Jersey-band Young Rising Sons have accomplished a lot within the past year, and from the looks of things, they are still on the rise… pun intended.

Humble beginnings, hard work ethics and never giving up have paid off for the Jersey-born rockers. The Young Rising Sons are rounding out quite an eventful year. From landing a record deal with Interscope Records to releasing their debut EP last month, the foursome comprised of Andy Tongren, Dylan Scott, Julian Dimagiba and Steve Patrick is now taking a turn under our spotlight.

The Young Rising Sons live up to their name with their uplifting and upbeat sound. Their recently released, self-titled EP features four tracks that lead singer Andy Tongren says have “a little hit of optimism,” and the band’s first single, “High” is a testament to that.

Featured on BBC Radio One and named as Zane Lowe’s “Next Hype” track, “High” is almost a documentation of the Young Rising Sons’ journey to the present point in time. Tongren says:

I think that ”High” is really about the ups and downs, and we’ve had a lot of those in the band. That song kind of sums us up […] All the time that we spent trying things that didn’t work, it’s all worth it now. So that’s kind of what “High” is about and why we wanted to write it. We saw this change, and we could feel it sort of happen from the very beginning. And we knew something was different, and we wanted to capture that in “High.”

Fresh off a tour with Little Daylight, the Young Rising Sons are heading back to the studio to finish up a full-length album due out early next year. Between recording sessions, the band will be playing a few shows here and there before heading out on another tour with KONGOS.

If you want a quick pick-me up to ease away back-to-school blues, be sure to pick up the Young Rising Sons self-titled EP.

Cobra Starship returns with new and retro single

cobra

By Alan Ho

It’s official!  Gabe Saporta and company is back!  Cobra Starship, recently signed to Pete Wentz’s imprint DCD2 Records (still in the Fueled By Ramen family) has just released a new single today (Monday August 25) that will harken back to one of the heights of 90’s pop music and samples one of the decade’s biggest hits!

The single, “Never Been in Love” features yet another collab, this time with Icona Pop.  According to a press release:

“Never Been In Love” has a stadium-pop sound reminiscent of an earlier era. “I had been listening to a lot of early 90′s UK artists — Jesus Jones, EMF, George Michael,” explains Saporta, “It was a time when bands first started incorporating break beats and electronic elements into their music. I had been trying to find a way to modernize that sound.” When Wallpaper. had the idea to sample Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You,” Gabe knew they had hit the nail on the head. “I heard that piano break and I knew we had it.”

Take a listen here in this lyric video and subscribe to FBR’s YouTube to earn an exclusive look into the music video that will be out soon!

10.  Lucy Hale | Lie a Little Better
11.  Haley Reinhart | Show Me Your Moves
12.  Little Mix | Salute

Recap:

This happens once a year.  And only one cycle does this happen, but after adding in the mobile tally votes (with multiplier) with the web tally votes, NOTHING, we repeat, NOTHING changed in the overall standings and it matches the FINAL leaderboard update from the WEB tally!  At least the Top 16.

So for the fourth week in a row, Fifth Harmony shows who is boss as they sweep both ends for the overall no. 1 spot!  Scotty McCreery is your top runner-up for a second week in a row, 5 Seconds of Summer squeaks past Nick Jonas with their stretch run web tally surge and overcame a weak mobile tally for no. 3 overall; that sends Nick Jonas into the no. 4 spot and Demi and Hilary round out the Top 6.

Alas for Archies as David Archuleta for the first time ever fails to finish in the Top 12 in spite of a no. 6 finish in the mobile tally.  But his web tally, which he finished 14th ultimately kept him in that spot in the end at no. 14, behind new Bubble leader Colbie Caillat!

The next cycle begins today at 2 pm ET, the first leaderboards issued Monday!  Taylor Swift enters the cycle, her first entry this year!

Recap:

Barring some sort of lull, Fifth Harmony may have just locked a fourth straight week at no. 1, which has not happened in 8 months when Taylor Swift did so!  They have the captain’s chair in both tallies.  No. 2 overall is down to a battle between Scotty McCreery (no. 2 web, no. 3 mobile) and Nick Jonas (no. 5 mobile, no. 4 web), who is in that battle because Lucy Hale is at no. 2 on the mobile tally, but sits at no. 10 on the web tally, 5 Seconds of Summer has a strong web tally, climbing to no. 3, but sits at no. 8 in the key mobile tally!

Demi Lovato is fifth currently in the web tally, sits at fourth in the mobile tally as she looks for at least a Top 6 finish.  David Archuleta might sneak inside the Top 12 as he sits at no. 6 on the mobile tally, but sits at no. 14 in the web tally.

This the final leaderboard update!  The cycle ends tomorrow at noon ET, the 28th cycle begins 2 hours after at 2 pm ET!  Keep on voting, ANYTHING can happen in the stretch run!

Recap:

In The Web Tally:  Your closing Top 6 from the final overall Top 12 and Bubble from the 26th cycle remains the SAME at open as Fifth Harmony opens for a fourth week in a row at no. 1, Scotty McCreery checks in at no. 2, Nick Jonas at no. 3, Demi Lovato at no. 4, Ed Sheeran at no. 5 and 5 Seconds of Summer rounding out the Top 6 at no. 6!

Now it gets a bit more different!  The Cab roars back on the outside looking in at no. 7, Hilary Duff opens at no. 8, Lucy Hale drops out of the Top 5, opening at no. 9, Christina Perri likewise at no. 10, Haley Reinhart rises a spot to no. 11 at open and Colbie Caillat returns to the Top 12 at no. 12!

Little Mix is the new leader of The Bubble at the open at no. 13, Cher Lloyd opens at no. 14, Lana Del Rey checks in at no. 15 and Madison Beer rounds out the Top 16.  The fall continues for David Archuleta as he drops completely out of the Top 12 and into The Bubble at no. 17

In The Mobile Tally:  Fifth Harmony looks to sweep both ends for a fourth week at no. 1 overall as the girls open again at no. 1.  Lucy Hale continues to fare much much much better at no. 2, Nick Jonas opens at no. 3, Demi Lovato at no. 4, Scotty McCreery opens at no. 4 and performing much better in this tally is David Archuleta, who rounds out the Top 6!

Recap:

A big surge in web tally votes in the end is what seals it for Fifth Harmony, who grabs a THIRD week in a row at no. 1 overall in spite of finishing second in the mobile tally behind 5 Seconds of Summer, whose weaker web tally sunk their chances at a Top-3 finish and finished 6th overall!

Scotty McCreery surged as well in both tallies, but it wasn’t enough as he finished second overall, which is a new career high on The Countdown!  Nick Jonas finished third overall, Demi Lovato jumps back into the overall Top 6 at no. 4, Ed Sheeran checks in at no. 5 and the aforementioned 5 Seconds of Summer rounded out the overall Top 6!

Lucy Hale used her STRONG mobile tally (no. 3) and a Top-10 finish in the web tally to grab the no. 7 overall spot for the cycle…The Cab finished 8th, Christina Perri debuts at no. 9 in spite of a terrible mobile tally (failed to reach Top 16), but she had enough web tally votes for a Top 10 overall finish!

David Archuleta continues his odd tumble, finishing 11th overall and Haley Reinhart finishes off the overall Top 12.  Lana Del Rey is your new leader of The Bubble at no. 13, Colbie Caillat drops out of the Top 12 and into The Bubble at no. 14, Jesse McCartney finishes 15th overall and Brad Paisley rounds out the Top 16!

Recap:

In The Web Tally:  The game is afoot…at least for Scotty McCreery it is as he ascends into the no. 2 spot heading into the stretch run, but he miles apart from clear cut leader Fifth Harmony, who seek a third straight week as “Boss” of The Countdown!  Nick Jonas consequently drops a spot, down to no. 3, Ed Sheeran jumps a spot no. 4, as does Demi at no. 5 and Christina Perri rounds out the Top 6!

The other big notable is Lucy Hale jumping back inside the Top 10 at no. 10.  This sends Colbie Caillat out of the Top 12 and into The Bubble at no. 14, Lana Del Rey takes the place of Hale at no. 13!

In The Mobile Tally:  After the initial upheaval, things in the tally appear to have calmed down quite a bit.  But Fifth Harmony has risen into the no. 2 spot as they seek to not only get a third week in a row at no. 1, but do so by sweeping BOTH tallies!  Lucy Hale drops a spot no. 3, Nick Jonas checks in at no. 4, Demi Lovato at no. 5 and Scotty McCreery, after a weak start in the tally has exploded lately, landing at no. 6!

This is the final leaderboard update for this cycle!  The cycle ends tomorrow at a special time, 7 pm ET and the new cycle, the 27th begins at 9 pm ET!   Keep the votes coming, EVERY SINGLE VOTE counts.  VOTE VOTE VOTE on both the web and mobile tallies, don’t miss either tally, again, EVERY vote counts on BOTH tallies!
