Punk Adams Comes Through With Slick Single, ‘Boo’ + Video

Brooklyn bred/Los Angeles based R&B artist PUNK ADAMS just released his new single and visuals for ‘Boo.’ Exploring a new love and taking a bold approach with someone he’s interested in, Punk put his feelings on the table, singing: ”I done had a few but there ain’t none like you.”

Punk confides, “I wrote ‘Boo’ to showcase more confidence in self. I wasn’t always confident in my size and appearance, so it made it difficult to talk to people out of fear of rejection. This time I wanted to put myself out there in a more flirtatious way, seeing someone I like and taking a chance.”

During his writing camp, Punk Adams worked with producer “Titus E Johnson“ to create a fun and flirtatious song inspired by the 90s hip hop & RnB songs he grew up on, such as the innovative sounds of Pharrell and Missy Elliot. With its playful melodies, catchy lyrics, and vibrant sound, ‘Boo’ comes just in time for cuffing season.

Punk Adams has received acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Afropunk, Earmilk, BBC Radio 1, Slay and added to Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist. Check him out below…

REVIEW: HASTEN MERCY – HEAD FAKE’S MICHAEL BAKER

Fusing indie pop with influences of country and folk music may seem like an odd partnership on paper for many, but this is what fundamentally makes up Toronto artist Michael Baker’s three-piece project, ‘Hasten Mercy.’

The haziness of the 80’s inspired synths softly poke through the hazy backdrop introduces the EP through the single ‘Star You Are.’ The guitar rounds up the three-and-a-half production, giving off a rich Americana sound.

With the driving grit of the electro bassline being the main feature, the second offering, ‘These Things’ (personally) more takes on a trippy downtempo tone, contributed by the woeful presence from the piano and violins.

Offering an appealing imitate setting, the artist invites us into his world through the final single, ‘I Break Everything’. He uses a vocal instrument to give a wholesome folk ballad that works perfectly against the soft electronic backdrop.

Michael Baker, who is the man behind the moniker Hasten Mercy, is known for pushing the boundaries to the extreme when it comes to experimenting with different genres. His solo project is a true testimony of his ability to merge unlikely genres into a very pleasing collection. All three singles have a solid potential for commanding regular attention on contemporary radio stations.

The ultimate “boy-next-door,” MARK AMBOR has captured the hearts of millions, emerging as one of pop music’s freshest voices. After the success of his recent single, ‘The Long Way’ (which received over 1.2 million streams in under a month), Mark returns with ‘Company’, a self-produced pop anthem gleaming with bright synths and live drums. His rapid ascent from unknown to breakout viral success places him on a trajectory with some of the most exciting names in rising pop music today.

Speaking on the inspiration behind “Company,” Ambor says, “I wrote this song during quarantine when I was missing everyone and everything that made me feel alive. I was talking to a girl that I was falling away from, I hadn’t seen my friends in a while and the whole idea of the song just flowed out of me over a piano riff one day. The idea is simple: life is better with each other. Which, for me, really highlights an important feeling I want to convey; realizing we’re not alone and celebrating ourselves, with one another, for all we’re worth.”

23-year-old New York native Mark Ambor is a self-taught guitarist, producer and vocalist who has been playing piano since the age of 7. While music has been a constant throughout his life, this past year has been the most defining for him as an artist.
