Wrong is a word I’d never ever associate with Brooklyn’s pronoun, except on this rare occasion, when the one-woman band lead by Alyse Vellturo has released a new song named “wrong”. The zestful hooking guitar pop song feels ever so right with its lush prancing guitars and galvanic vocals. “wrong” is the second single from pronoun’s forthcoming debut album, set to drop sometime this year. Intimate lo-fi pop meets lithe and animated rock on her new anthem, of which pronoun explains: 

“For the longest time I was so angry at her, and the news that should have been the final straw actually just made me feel really bad for her which spun me in to the weird emotion of how can you feel sorry for some one you "hate”? How is that even possible, do other people feel this way? I guess in a way it’s what I would want to say if i wanted to talk to her–which obviously I don’t–so i wrote this song instead.“ You can find the endearing new single on iTunes, here.

Far Out, a production signed to Steve Void’s label Strange Fruits, has unleashed on us a ravishing beauty named Wrong, featuring pristine vocals by Emilia Ali. Everything goes so right with this epic chill trap, future bass, and electro aria. Wrong takes us on a breathtaking sojourn bursting with bittersweet emotion. Its crystalline melody makes it a crossover ready pop hit. You can also stream Wrong via Spotify, here. Free download available, here.

This next treasure of a tune comes with a sorrowful story. Wrong comes off of Australian band Big Smoke’s debut album Time Is Golden, which is due to arrive on October 28th. Though this is the band’s first record, the band’s frontman, Adrian Slattery, has sadly passed away before its release. In fact, Time Is Golden was recorded after Adrian had already been diagnosed with cancer. Wrong arrives with a music video directed by Adrian’s friend, Sean Lynch. The song itself endears with its earthy rustling, honeyed sincere heartland rock, reminding me at times of The War On Drugs. The tragic circumstances under which such a wonderful tune and a forthcoming album arrive is a bittersweet pill to swallow. I’m grateful we get to listen to Big Smoke’s music. Pre-order Time Is Golden, here.

Nashville based Louisiana trio NAWAS made a formidable splash when they arrived with their debut So Low earlier this year, creating quite a stir in the blogosphere and beyond. Their tightly woven, hip hop imbued electro R&B had us all captivated and intrigued. Wrong is a fine follow up to that first song, a fiery burning, stormy prowling song that once against pairs R&B with hip hop in a very electrifying fashion. Though NAWAS is influenced by the likes of Kanye West, Prince, D’Angelo, and Justin Timberlake, it’s a very fresh and unique sound they present us in their music, which at times reminds me of Bishop Briggs and Lewis Del Mar, but with an extra dash of urban mettle. Wrong is gritty yet slick, a powerfully resonating second song from this band to watch.

OFFICIAL VID: The Airborne Toxic Event – Wrong

December 10, 2014

Los Angeles indie rock veterans The Airborne Toxic Event will be releasing a new album in 2015 named Dope Machines, which I’m sure is great news for many people. The lead single off their fourth studio album is the synthy, radiant Wrong, a song I’ve fallen quite in love with. The sparkling melody reminds me of some of Placebo’s less dark and more synth heavy music over the years, and I’m a huge Placebo fan. Watch their video for Wrong, just out today. Wrong is bittersweet and emotional, but it’s also one of their more luminous and least forlorn tunes. It’s quickly become one of my top tunes from them, with Sometime Around Midnight still the all time champion.
