Alex Lahey

Australian musician Alex Lahey returns with new single, “Spike the Punch,” out today on Liberation Records.  An explosive power pop track, propelled by Lahey’s knack for indisputable hooks and fiery, confessional lyrics, “Spike the Punch” marks Lahey’s first release since writing and recording “On My Way,” the theme song for Sony Picture Animation’s The Mitchells vs The Machines, now Netflix’s biggest animated release of all time.

Lahey produced “Spike the Punch” alongside John Castle, with Grammy Award winner Carlos de la Garza (Paramore/Hayley Williams, Cherry Glazerr, Best Coast) lending his mixing skills to the track.

“‘Spike The Punch’ is a song about the fun that comes with self-sabotage and reckless abandon. It’s big, it’s loud, it’s fun, it’s its own beast,” says Lahey. “There are some super sinister tones in there rubbing up against really bright anime style guitar harmonies (guitarmonies, anyone?..) and shout choruses. Spike feels like a raucous bookend to navigating these cruelly unpredictable times. Touch wood.”

The video for “Spike The Punch” was directed by Matt Sav and features a performance by Matthew Pope. Of the video, Lahey says, “The ‘Spike The Punch’ video is perhaps my favourite video I’ve ever been a part of. I’m incredibly grateful to Matt Sav and his team for pulling this together while I’ve been locked down in Melbourne. Matt and I spoke about how we wanted to capture a sense of freedom, fluidity and fun in this video along with hurtling forward momentum. Matt Pope, the brilliant performer who stars in the video, completely harnesses the direction and puts on a hell of a show. It gives me chills every time I press play.” @alex_lahey

Following the release of her acclaimed singles “Not Like Other Girls” and “Iridescent,” and an unforgettable feature on the hit Netflix series Atypical, Zola Simone unveils a body of work that showcases the wide breadth of her musical abilities. Her debut album Now You See Me.

“The meaning of Now You See Me lies in the title itself. It’s about me finally maturing, growing up, and putting my whole true self out there for the world to see, and most importantly, not caring about how that’s perceived. It’s about just being,” explains Simone.

An 18-year-old native to Cambridge, Massachusetts, Zola Simone owes her initial interest in music to her parents. After writing her first real song at the age of 12, Simone has only been improving her style and writing abilities. As an LGBTQ+ woman, she is no stranger to judgment. She’s overcome her struggles with anxiety and bullying through her music and has even sold out a show at The Burren in Somerville, MA, proving no matter who or what stands in her path, Zola Simone will be sure to push through.

Asia Rising Together Benefit Concert by 88 Rising

May 26, 2021

7pm PST

88rising Announces Asia Rising Together: Benefit Concert in Support of AAPI Heritage Month
88rising, announces an upcoming benefit concert timed to Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM). Viewers can tune into the concert through 88rising’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter & SiriusXM channel on May 26th at 7PM PT.

On the heels of their 2020 Asia Rising Forever benefit livestream in May 2020, which drew in 8.5M viewers and trended #1 on YouTube and Twitter, 88rising continues their longstanding commitment to amplifying Asian voices with the upcoming benefit concert. On May 26th, viewers are invited to join in an immersive cultural experience celebrating the Asian community to ultimately raise funds and awareness.

The concert will feature global participation from artists around the world including Atarashii Gakko!, Audrey Mika, Audrey Nuna, Bizzy, Guapdad 4000, eaJ (of Day6), KOAD, Luna Li, mxmtoon, NIKI, Seori, Tiger JK, yoonmirae and Guest Appearances by RZA, Dumbfoundead, Ocean Vuong, and a Special Introduction by CL. Throughout the show, the audience will witness a series of intimate performances, punctuated by moments of poetry, meditation, and a special surprise or two.

“This is a really unique livestream centered around family and culture,” says Audrey Mika, “I filmed part of my set with my mom and sister, and being able to share our Japanese roots on this platform is really special to me. I hope this shows everyone you can chase your dreams, stay true to yourself, and be proud of who you are in the process.”

In tandem with these inspired musical performances, the event will highlight artist stories and identity through a variety of programming while spotlighting AAPI businesses and organizations across industries.

88rising is working alongside Sean Kusanagi, Creative Director of Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective, to direct this piece. Kusanagi’s documentary and creative backgrounds work together to deliver powerful, personal family stories to the next generation, woven in with music and art.
“88rising is committed to using music and our platforms to elevate AAPI voices, to raise awareness for issues affecting our AAPI community, and to denounce anti-Asian hate,” shared Sean Miyashiro, the CEO and Founder of 88rising. “We are proud to bring this benefit concert along with our many other AAPI-focused initiatives to the forefront so that everyone can have a hand in making the world a more peaceful place.”

88rising thanks presenting partner Netflix and sponsor AT&T for their support.
Donations from the stream will support Asian Mental Health Collective, who creates a supportive and empathetic community; collaborates with mental health professionals and organizations; and celebrates mental health stories as Asians

The stream will also spotlight other Asian American organizations: The Vietnamese American Community Center of the East Bay and MAMA Los Angeles. These organizations, and many others, are working tirelessly to build community and power. The Vietnamese American Community Center of the East Bay (VACCEB) serves people of Asian ancestry and other vulnerable, forgotten communities in need in the Bay Area. MAMA is a multicultural restaurant platform dedicated to preserving immigrant culture through food. When many of LA’s most-loved ethnic restaurants faced closure during the pandemic, they created an event series called MAMA’s Drive-By Kitchen reimagining the take-out model to provide support, along with a meal-matching program feeding senior citizens across Los Angeles.

All donations go to Asian Mental Health Collective

“When creating the “Puppet” music video, I wanted to show my fans a fantasy story of a heartbroken girl imaginatively finding a way to mend her own heart and move on with no strings attached. The partner dance push and pull sequence portrays me at different stages of my life emotionally “breaking” from a long standing manipulative relationship and then eventually waking up and “breaking free.” I am able to finally see past this bad state of affairs and move on pulling myself back to a time of freedom, happiness, and a time when I believed in true love. I hope all of my listeners know their true worth and will always have the courage they need to ‘cut the strings’ and ‘break free!’”

Joy Kate’s “Puppet” was produced by Johnny Black and the video was directed by Christopher Logen and Taylor Sanders.

Kate is a singer-songwriter and actress who has appeared in Netflix’s Malicious.
