Detroit’s Flint Eastwood, aka riveting musician Jax Anderson, was one of our favorite rising artists in 2017. If you’ve never seen her live, you’re seriously missing out on the most energetic, charismatic stage show in existence right now from a pop performer. Jax hits the ground running in 2018 by sharing a new music video for her electro-pop song Monster, one of many irresistible offerings from her acclaimed Broke Royalty EP.

The video for vigorous stomping, crisp pulsing Monster was self-directed and self-edited, and it dips deliciously into the occult. Flint Eastwood has also announced her first headline tour alongside the dates she already has planned with red hot band PVRIS. Find out more about the tour, here. If you’ve yet to check out Broke Royalty despite our constant stream of praise in the past, you can find it on iTunes, here.

Though we’ve been zealously sharing music from Detroit’s Flint Eastwood for more than a year, Jax Anderson’s riveting project has swiftly become one of my top obsessions of 2017, particularly after I witnessed how scintillating and dazzling her music is when translated to the stage. Last Friday, Flint Eastwood dropped her new EP Broke Royalty on Neon Gold. It was a release I had been looking forward to with an insane amount of excitement. The seven track release, which includes beast of a tunes like Queen and Monster, also includes this ravishing collaboration with production and saxophone auteur GRiZ. Rewind is a flawless combination of Flint Eastwood’s captivating pop and GRiZ’s flickering future bass. It’s a crossover track that will surely please all the future pop heads out there these days, ie. fans of Louis The Child, Whethan, and more. You can stream Flint Eastwood’s magnificent Broke Royalty EP in full on her YouTube channel, here. Purchase from major outlets, here. Flint Eastwood’s San Francisco debut at Popscene in June is a night I am looking forward to with all my heart. I can’t wait to see her light the stage on fire once again, and I highly recommend you make your way out to a Flint Eastwood show yourself. Trust me on this one. I mean it. Really. Go.

I was lucky enough to catch Detroit’s Flint Eastwood not once but twice at SXSW over a week ago. Jax Anderson, the solo artist behind the project, blew my mind away with her fierce intensity on stage both times. Flint Eastwood quickly became a personal favorite in Austin, and she was also the talk of the conference, winning hearts over swiftly with both her infectious music and her riveting persona. I was elated when Flint Eastwood unleashed a new single but days after my return from Texas. Push even features another up and coming Michigan talent, Tunde Olaniran, who’s a member of Jax Anderson’s Assemble Sound collective. While it’s tough to top my love for prior single Queen, Push also reels me in with its sonic grandeur and commanding strength. The song pairs synth lavish electropop with a biting hip hop vibe. Push is the second single off Flint Eastwood’s upcoming EP, Broke Royalty, out April 14th on Neon Gold Records. It seems fitting Flint Eastwood is signed to Lizzy Plapinger’s label. Its bold whirring magnificence certainly reminds me of MS MR. You can purchase Push now via iTunes. Stream via Soundcloud below.

With a triumphant march comes Flint Eastwood’s new tune, Queen, a song with regal brass and majestic drums. It doesn’t get more grandiose than the Detroit based solo project’s massive new single. Despite its bombastic approach, Queen is also a sultry smolderer, partly due to Jax Anderson’s deep assured vocals and partly due to the song’s fiery fierce mettle. The empowering anthem comes ahead of Women’s Marches scheduled all across this weekend. I’m left ready to raise a fist to the air and stomp to the ridged cadence of this anthem. Queen is the lead single for a new EP arriving this year.

Assemble Sounds is, from what I could gather, a collaborative studio and co-op tank of sorts in Detroit that brings together local artists. The latest track from their Sunday Song series is truly an assembly of some rife talent. Saviors brings together Flint Eastwood, S¥BL¥NG, and IHM darlings Goth Pith. They unite to give us a heavenly indie electronic song that surges with grandeur and soars with angelic harmonies. The inspiring song is about personal empowerment and being your own savior instead of waiting for someone else to be your knight in shining armor. Saviors is beautiful and uplifting.

Glitches is the latest single from Flint Eastwood’s 2015 EP, Small Victories, and the riveting alt pop song gets a captivating and raw music video treatment to go along with its rough hewn pop edge. Glitches’ video was filmed at the World’s Best Boxing Gym in Detroit, and its grit and spunk are a perfect match to Flint Eastwood’s fearlessly compelling, vigorous and gusty electronic pop. The solo artist will also be performing at SXSW, just like everyone else I seem to be featuring these days. She’ll also be heading out on tour after her dates in Texas. Purchase her Small Victories EP from iTunes.

I’m new to Detroit based band Flint Eastwood. Not only did their quirky name jump out at me and make an impression, but their new song Find What You’re Looking For, off a just announced upcoming EP, also drew me in with its enchantingly sweeping production and siren like vocals. Find What You’re Looking For is an electronic pop song that feels like a profound escapade through a mystical jungle full of sparkling beauty and vibrant colors. New EP Small Victories will be out October 9th.
