All you binge-watchers out there, you better up your game because right now, it looks like Billie Eilish has set a new standard. Everyone knows that the young star is a huge fan of the sitcom, The Office. So, when she hopped aboard an Instagram live session with Rainn Wilson, fans were ecstatic.  

Even those of you who aren’t too familiar with the show, you can’t not know who Dwight Schrute is. Atleast, that name should ring some sort of bell, even if it’s a distant one. Well, Rainn Wilson plays this very character on the show and Billie Eilish had a little confession to make to him.

Billie Eilish & The Office – A Wild Relationship

“I just finished watching The Office for the 15th time two days ago. Every time I hit that episode that says finale, I’m always like, ‘Goddammit!'” she said. Now, that’s a quarantine well spent. But Rainn Wilson thought otherwise as he ordered her to move on to another show.

Now, that’s going to be very hard for Billie Eilish considering that she’s taken fangirling to a whole new level with this show. In fact, for those of you who didn’t know, she even included snippets of dialogue from the show for a track off her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

The lucky track that received this treatment was, “My Strange Addiction”. This tune kicks off with Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, inadvertently name-dropping the singer in a line from the episode “Threat Level Midnight”.  

“No Billie, I haven’t done that dance since my wife died,” Carell’s character says. Settling comfortably between Billie’s vocals, are dialogues from a number of other characters from ‘The Office’.

Anyway, back to Rainn Wilson, he interviewed Billie as part of his media company SoulPancake’s IG Live series ‘Hey There, Human’, which brings people from all over the world together, while they deal with life in quarantine. We can bravely bet that Billie will start re-watching the show for the 16th time, very soon. 

TXT Get Angsty in New Song: Can’t you See Me?

TXT hip hop group

South Korean boy group, Tomorrow x Together, also known as TXT have released their much awaited comeback “Can’t You See Me?”. The track is the leading single from their EP “The Dream Chapter: ETERNITY”. And while the song is a catchy alt-pop bop, there’s more to this one than meets the eye. 

“Can’t You See Me?” sees the 5 member group diving straight into the conflicts and anxieties that come with friendship. The boys explore the idea of loneliness as they’re faced with reality. The track emphasizes conflict by juxtaposing groovy R&B elements with chaotic, record-scratching drops throughout the song. The members of TXT croon: “Can’t you see me?// My friends don’t understand me// My friends don’t understand me anymore//”.

The melodic juxtaposition goes hand in hand with the visual representation of imagination vs. reality in the music video. The quick cuts of TXT enjoying each other’s company, with montages of them playing around and having fun, quickly goes up in flames, literally, as the boys are faced with their lonely realities. The choreography also plays into the darkness and angst of the song, with the members conquering a new style of dance. 

Early fan reactions have praised TXT for their departure from bubblegum pop and growth in such a short time. The group debuted back in March, 2019, and have only just completed a year in the industry. The group have shown steady leaps in terms of sales, but more importantly, musicality, proving to be a noteworthy debut group in K-Pop, commendably joining the league of their label mates: BTS

Their EP serves up the same duality that is reminiscent of their title track. From familiar pop tunes to hip-hop and trap, and light rock, TXT aim high with this release. If the idea was to depart from a binary of happiness, and dive into the more complex era of youth, they’ve done it successfully. 
“The Dream Chapter: ETERNITY” by TXT is out now and available on all streaming sites. 

BROCKHAMPTON Out With Two New Songs, We Dive In

BROCKHAMPTON

The ‘BOY BYE’ killers are back with two new songs! The boy band BROCKHAMPTON who have been known for creating beats with bass Easter Eggs have released a total of four songs in two weeks. We take a dive into the fresh offerings.

The first song is M.O.B or ‘Money Over Bitches’ was released by the 13 member boy band from Texas. It has a beat that draws in with, “I wanna be more like a child they question everything.” The honest lyrics are riveting for the first verse and could be a reference to BROCKHAMPTON’s earlier album ‘Question Everything’.

Towards the end BROCKHAMPTON is in a completely different riff and are heard rapping, “Push start, baby, like she drive a Benz truck (Woo) / You ain’t got no money, she don’t wanna link up (Grr).” Stressing on the money over females agenda. Further they add, “And if he fuck up, it’s one call to the mob (Grr) / Pull up ’round the corner and we make the block hot.” The song is in the lane of their usual stylings of “linking up” the lifestyle that involves money and the mob.

The second song BROCKHAMPTON is out with is called ‘twisted’ and it features Ryan Beatty and Christian Alexander.

The band raps, “Nobody sees it like we do / Nobody knows what we’ve been through / It’s been a hell of a year, but I know you got me and I got you / Now look at the love, look at the love” If anything this song can really be seen as an image cleanse. Claiming their solidarity with each other and their fans.

Earlier BROCKHAMTON had released two other tracks — ‘N.S.T.’ and ‘things can’t stay the same’.
