Rise Rock n’ Shine: Jeff Whalen + Car Astor

The sun is up, the music is ready,

it’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: You already know Jeff Whalen from Tsar. Now that he’s on his own he’s showing us just how important pop music is with his forthcoming album 10 More Rock Super Hits.

What: The lead single from the collection, “Jendy”, is full of pop rock nostalgia and bright “bubbleglam”.

Why: “Jendy” is the retro song we all wish would play in the movie about our lives.

“This is ‘Jendy’! It’s a catchy song about a fab girl who inspires a band to write a catchy song about her. It’s really about how pop music and love and girls and these things make us feel a certain way when need them to. We put a tremendous amount of pressure on them to mean something when we need them to mean something. And they never let us down. It’s inspired by this girl I like. She’s super bee’s-kneesy. It’s also a bit about America.” – Jeff Whalen

Who: New York’s Car Astor is playing with the lines of pop music and making something truly irresistible in the meantime.

What: “Don’t Stop, Don’t Speak” is equal parts urgency and melody, making for an intense pop song.

Why: The second we hit play on “Don’t Stop, Don’t Speak”, we instantly felt cooler—amd kind of like the protagonist in a kick ass video game.

“”Hey guys! So excited to share my new single ‘Don’t Stop, Don’t Speak’ with you. Writing and recording this track was some of the most fun I’ve ever had with a song, maybe because of how nostalgic it makes me feel. Hopefully it makes you guys want to dance and sing like we are all 13 again—let loose with this one!”
