Wild Cub Return With New Single “Somewhere”

Wild-Cub-2017-620

Three years ago, there was one name at the top of the Nashville indie pop boom, and that name was Wild Cub.  The band signed to Mom+Pop, who released their debut album, Youth, and saw the group explode onto the national scene with cross country tours, major festival slots, radio play, and television appearances.  After retreating from the spotlight (and moving to Los Angeles and Brooklyn) over the past couple of years to write and record new music, we’re thrilled to see Wild Cub re-emerge.  Late last week, they debuted a brand new single “Somewhere,” which sees the band picking up where they left off with boisterous drums and a surprising horn line carrying the new track.

No news yet of a sophomore record or upcoming tour dates, but we would expect that to change in the coming weeks.  In the meantime, dig into “Somewhere” below to get a taste of what Wild Cub have been up to of late.

Hot Tub Club Return with Banger “Move Your Body (Extended Workout Mix)”

HotTubClub2017-620

It’s been a minute since we last checked in on local dance-rap crew Hot Tub Club, but the group have been keeping active; playing shows and crafting new tunes in the interim. Formed at Bonnaroo after the disappearance of their dear friend Ricky, HTC dropped the aptly-named Songs 4 Ricky mixtape in 2015, and have popped up for local appearances here and there ever since.

Earlier this week, they returned triumphantly with their official debut single, “Move Your Body (Extended Workout Mix),” out via the mysterious Live Nation Records. Though it seems like the club’s ranks may have shrunk a bit (and there’s still no sign of Ricky), their classic rap callback meets Red Bull-fueled party anthem primed style is as fresh as ever. Between a DJ night at new bar Rosemary and a performance at The High Watt, it looks like Hot Tub Club are ramping up their live activity again too, so keep an eye out for the next chance to see their wild live show, and hit play below, but only if you’re ready to move your body!
