Alan Walker & Ava Max – Alone, Pt. II (Review)

Alan Walker’s songs are laser-focused on young people who feel alienated. They see the world from their personal digital perspective that algorithms designed for them, and since their bubble is unique, they wonder why nobody understands them.

Porter Robinson – Get Your Wish (Review)

I’ve been following Porter Robinson ever since Spotify’s brain-picking algorithms introduced him to my consciousness, back in 2015.

Daylight‘s video is directed by Peter Majarich, and I think it suits the song perfectly. The best videos make the song sound even better, and this is … Read more
