Have a spookily musical Halloween this year.
The early invitations are out and so it's time to start planning your Halloween costume. There is always too much choice for music fans thanks to iconic spooky looks from Michael Jackson in his Thriller outfit to Robert Smith being... well... Robert Smith. For a more up-to-date look though, we've got you covered.
Billie Eilish at the Met Gala
Ok, so it’s a bit extravagant, but what’s a Halloween party without someone wearing a completely over the top princess dress? This year, it’s your turn to take the limelight as Met Gala Billie Eilish- but hopefully without the hefty Oscar de la Renta price tag.

The pop-punk revival is here, and it's all Travis Barker's fault.
There was a time we thought that pop-punk was a relic of the 2000s never to be heard again - at least, not in anything that wasn't a "guilty pleasure" capacity. But it seems that, somehow, it's back in vogue and if there's one person we need to thank for it it's Travis Barker.

The Blink-182 drummer has teamed up with numerous hip hop and mainstream pop acts over the last decade, but rather than his sound taking a more commercial turn, in the last couple of years it's been his collaborators that have adopted the music style that Blink-182 helped shape.

Ring in the New Year with a very appropriate playlist...
The New Year is almost here, and we've never been more relieved or felt the need to celebrate more. Of course, our celebrations will be dampened by social distancing regulations, but we reckon a good playlist is all we need to ring in a very welcome 2021.

The 2020 pop masterpieces that we've had on repeat.
While we've been forced to party in the comfort of our own living rooms over the course of 2020, that doesn't mean we haven't had fun. The pop world has continued to push out hit after hit, many of which has kept smiles on our faces on the days when we didn't think it were even possible...

We've not quite reached the end of 2020 just yet, but Yungblud's follow-up to 2018's phenomenal 21st Century Liability - Weird! - is certainly a high note for this final month of chaos. While the former explored the many ways in which the youth are ostracised from society, the latter looks more at the individual becoming comfortable with being different. And how better to do that than with an album that just won't settle into any one genre?
We open with the heartfelt ballad of Teresa; our first hint that Yungblud is traversing more pop-punk/emo areas with Weird! It feels like Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly have been spending too much time together reminiscing about the mid-2000s, but we're not complaining. There's a distinct early Panic At The Disco edge to this opener but it's far from dated.
Following that is arguably the most vibrant single, Cotton Candy. It's an infectious pop track about the wonders of polyamory and memorable, if not for the sexual themes then for the line: "I wanna get stuck between your teeth like cotton candy". Cotton candy literally dissolves as soon as it hits your tongue. But whatever - we're more distracted by his calling candyfloss "cotton candy": the American influence is clear on this record.

He explores what it feels like to not belong.
When we think of loneliness, we often think of old people and people without romance in their lives, but truthfully it's something so much deeper. It's a feeling we all get, and one that not all of us get over; it's that painful, frustrated feeling of not belonging.

No matter how many people we are surrounded by, we will always feel lonely if we don't have someone we can connect with, which is why Dominic Harrison - aka YUNGBLUD - invited a group of likeminded individuals to discuss what it's like to feel like an outsider in a short film for Vevo Lift called 'Lonely Together'.
