I caught up electropop maestro Gibbz recently as he was prepping for his current tour with Dragonette, and dealing with some not-so-fun stuff as well: 751 more words



“Is it wrong if all we wanna do is dance and sing?”, asks Cherub’s Jordan Kelley in the opening track of the electropop duo’s new album, Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence; the lyrics set the tone for the record’s cover to cover atmosphere of funktastic fun from the fellas that brought us smash hit “Doses And Mimosas” way back in 2013. 412 more words
