Creepy fantasies are not romance, reactionary clichés are not nostalgia and being obsessed with someone's physical appearance is not love: We need to boycott misogyny and sexism, this time found in the lyrics of a widely acclaimed band.

Shortly after the release of ‘Now I’m In It’ in late October, a song about going through depression and spiralling minds, NBHAP editor Anna Stich talked to HAIM about the tough times, the past times, the good times and the future times. The three Californian sisters have been working hard in the studio and since then blessed the world with another single called ‘Hallelujah’, a counterpart to ‘Now I’m In It’ appreciating the love and support we need while stuck in a dark place.
In the lovely tradition of the past years we gave the task to pick the year's best music video to two true experts - Award-winning Berlin-based video artists Schall & Schnabel.

And yes, it's looking good.
Fontaines D.C. are one of the rising stars in the musical landscape of 2019. With “Dogrel” the band from Ireland released a remarkable debut, mixing edgy indie-rock, post-punk and garage.

This band is as sweet as their name; Pale Honey is the Swedish indie rock Duo Tuva and Nelly. The two musicians have known each other since 8th grade, which was also when they first embarked on their musical journey. We met the band on their stopover in Berlin, to chat about being devoted to art and to rummage a candy store for treats.
In the wake of the impending climate catastrophe we as a human species need to change the way we interact with our planet and that affects pretty much every aspect of our life. Slowly the music industry begins to wake up in that sector as well, forcing us to overthink our relationship towards touring and music consumption whether we like it or not. Beloved Danish artist and DJ Kasper Bjørke actively tried it out last weekend and exclusively on NBHAP he shares his thoughts and impressions from this very special trip.
Only rarely do we get the possibility to learn about the secrets behind our favourite musicians’ signature sounds. Ahead of the release of COMA’s new record, NBHAP editor Igor Franjić met with the duo in their studio in Cologne to talk about synthesizers, effects and all the other gadgets that brought "Voyage Voyage" to life.
