Capital Cities duo Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant just made my Friday with the release of their new EP Swimming Pool Summer.
I was so caught off guard when I heard their voices coming through my headphones at the office while listening to Spotify’s New Music Friday!
The EP is super summery and upbeat. Long-time fans will not be disappointed.
In celebration, let’s enjoy this fan art I found on Twitter by Filipino Capital Cities fan @imnotjess. I love how vibrant and fun the colors are in this poster-like fan art. Perfectly matches the personality of the band!

And here we all thought that the sass was real on Demi Lovato’s “Confident.”
Today, Demi’s collab with Jax Jones and Stefflon Don titled “Instruction” was released, and boy, I don’t think I wanna disobey!
Demi is basically boss lady on this track and I love every second of it.
To celebrate this amazing song, here’s some fan art of Demi by @londonhazz on Instagram. Look. At. Those. Lashes!
Check out some more of @londonhazz’s art and listen to “Instruction” here.
Katy Perry’s new album Witness dropped today, and although some think it’s pretty terrible, I kinda liked it. A little.
“Chained to the Rhythm,” one of the singles on the album, is an instant fave for me. I absolutely loved the music video for it as well. In terms of non-singles, “Tsunami” and “Déjà Vu” are really great. I do agree that Katy Perry tried to stray from her playful self a bit too much on this album.
Regardless, Teenage Dream still holds the spot as my favorite Katy Perry album.
Enjoy this intense digital fan art of Katy Perry that I found over on Instagram. It’s by by Indonesian graphic artist Muhammad Lutfi (@mdlutfi057). I can’t get over how captivating her blue eyes are in this piece!
Anyone else kind of miss Katy Perry’s dark hair days?
See more of Lutfi’s amazing fan art on Instagram, and give Witness a listen.
Paramore is back with some new music this week!
Their new song and music video “Hard Times” was released on Wednesdays, and Paramore fans are super stoked. So many things have changed about the band since their self-titled album came out in 2013. Hayley Williams got married, she died her hair blonde (loving it!), Zac Farro left for his solo project HalfNoise, and now he’s back!
So much excitement going on here!
In honor of this, enjoy a piece of Paramore fan art I found on Deviant Art by KoRniszonka. It features a 2012 version of the band, which included Hayley, Jeremy, and Taylor.
Oh, how times have changed.
Be sure to check out the original fan art on Deviant Art and watch “Hard Times” below!
Today I was at work casually listening to the New Music Friday playlist on Spotify when I heard a familiar voice come through my headphones.
The song was “Lost Boys Life” and the artist was Computer Games–a band didn’t know until I Googled them and found out that Darren Criss is one of the members, alongside his brother, Chuck.
Yes. The familiar voice was Darren Criss’. I’m still dumbfounded. I didn’t even know he had a brother!
Anyway, I love the song and the rest of the EP that Computer Games put out this week. In celebration of this discovery, here’s a piece of fan art I found on Pinterest of Darren Criss. I have no clue who created it, but I’m totally digging the sepia feel of it.
Listen to the EP here if you haven’t already!
I know I said I’d be back yesterday. I had every intention of posting but I got home from work very late and very tired.
But I’m here now with a new Fan Art Fridays!
Ed Sheeran’s new album ÷ is finally out and boy, did our Teddy outdo himself with the diversity aspect on the deluxe edition for this one!
From fast paced raps and dancable rhythms to slow ballads and foreign languages, Ed Sheeran’s album is a real treat that’ll probably get him a ton of new faces in the crowd on tour. I personally fell in love Twi song “Bibia Be Ye Ye.”
While snooping around Instagram, I came across this really creative fan art of Ed Sheeran by sarahasartist. Drawn on brown paper, the chorus of “Thinking Out Loud” dances across his slight grin. It’s the perfect transition from x to ÷.
Check out sarahasartist’s work over on Instagram.
Zedd turned 27 today!
Seems like the birthday boy is pumping some “Adrenaline” for his special day, as his new track was released today.
“Adrenaline” is a collaboration with up-and-coming producers Grey. They’re so mysterious. I want to know more about them…
In honor of Zedd’s birthday, I’ve selected this incredible piece of fan art I found on Instagram by sirenmonkeyofficial. It really shows off his “True Colors.”
Enjoy “Adrenaline” below and view the original fan art here.
