General | Latest Info

Few of pops current heavyweights feel as accidental as Jack Antonoff. He did his time on the indie scene for decade, first fronting Drive-Thru Records band Steel Train and later joining fun., Which itself began as an indie supergroup. Fun. Break big with the surprise hit We Are Young in 2012, but that wasnt pop moment Antonoff was looking for. Not one to stay idle for long, Antonoff started 80s-nostalgic side project Bleachers, which soon became his main project when fun. Announce hiatus. He co-produce every track on Bleachers sharp 2014 debut album, Strange Desire, and started producing for other artists around the same time after lending his pen here and there. Namely, he places a few key tracks on Taylor Swifts 2014 pop turn, 1989, including Out of Woods, I Wish You Would, and that banger of bonus track New Romantics. After accumulating some of the best credits a pop producer could get, he produced odd track for a hodgepodge of musicians, from Sia to Fifth Harmony. But he didnt become capital-P Producer until Lorde took him on for the 2017 Melodrama, released three years after the two met at the Grammy after-party. A fellow alternative-pop artist, she formed a tight bond with Antonoff as writer and producer. Fans think they were romantically involved despite Antonoff being in a longtime relationship with Lena Dunham at the time and they produced definitive work in both of their catalogues. Three years later, Melodrama highlights Antonoffs best skills as writer and producer, all of which circle back to his early days in music: making larger-than-life songs, bringing rock ear to pop music, and understanding how much he actually needed to do to help artists say what they want and shine while doing it. Since then, hes rack up more credits, becoming writer-Producer first and performer second. 2019 seems like the Year of Jack Antonoff, between turns at the helm of albums by Lana Del Rey, Kevin Abstract, and Taylor Swift. But as these past few weeks have shown us, that was just the start. He gives Chicks ' long-awaited return, Gaslighter, its infectious pop sound and now provides ambient, brooding accompaniment for Del Reys ' speak-word album Violet Bent Backwards Over Grass. And between two, Swift released six tracks he produced on her surprise album Folklore, calling him musical family when announcing the project on Instagram. Those projects make it perfect time to review and define Jack Antonoff Sound, style that made an indelible mark on the last few years of pop and seems like it will only continue to do so.

Grand string flourishes

From Lordes whisper-pop to Jack Antonoffs anti-irony, Elle Hunt dissects how pop music is changing now, after nearly 20 years of Max Martin sugar rush. Melodrama didnt win Album Of Year AT Grammys last month. But it had always been a long shot. Grammys tend to recognise legacy or commercial success, and though it had been well received by critics, and appeared on top of Billboard Album charts in its first week, Lord's sophomore album had not exactly set charts on fire. Green Light was the best-performing of its three singles, peaking AT 19 on Billboard Hot 100. By comparison, among five singles by Bruno Mars, WINNING 24K Magic was his seventh number one. Ella Yelich-OConnor, already a two-time GRAMMY winner at 21 years old, seemed magnanimous in defeat, conspicuously swigging from hip flask and tweeting about meeting Cardi B and Prez Jay-Z. She didnt win another GRAMMY, but she did need to. Shed has already won pop Music. The sound that LORDE had ushered in nearly five years ago With Royals and Pure Heroine seems to peak in 2017. She may not have dominated the charts herself, but her influence could be heard up and down them, even as melodrama indicated she was moving in a new direction. When Pure Heroine was released in 2013, Macklemores Thrift Shop was years best-selling single, topping Hot 100 for four weeks before succumbing to the hypnotic assault of Baauers Harlem Shake. Cant Hold Us, also by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, was another defining song of the year, along with Blurred Lines, Katy Perrys Roar, and Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus. When the Royals begin their nine-week rule Of Hot 100, it sounds like nothing else on the charts. By pop standards, Thrift Shop and Roar were fast by any means, but AT 85 bpm, Royals were slower. Blur Lines, inescapable song of North American summer after 12 weeks AT number one, was pacy and fresh Out, with jaunty cowbell and a message that didnt stand up to scrutiny. Royals was stark and spacious, attempting not only new sound but social critique, and the album was similar. LORDE WINNING AT 56 ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS, 2014 loads of girls who were like LORDE, and the rise of whisperpop Listening to Pure Heroine today, only clue that it is nearly five years old. Are crisp and mechanical drums-nothing like the anthemic 80s style currently enjoying comeback. Apply that gated reverb to Team or Tennis Court, make them minor key, and youve get 2017 hit: 100 or fewer beats per minute, processed voice serving as instrumental hook, layers of synth and cavernous reverb, melodic range of only a handful of notes per chorus, and intimate vocals. That almost conversational style of singing is now so ubiquitous, it is easy to forget it would not have been associated with pop ten years ago or fewer.

Big 80s synths

Jack Antonoff is an industrial guy. You know him even if you dont think you do. Check the underwear hood of any pop album released in the last few years and there is a decent chance that Antonoffs fingerprints are in there somewhere. Antonoff has produced for some of the bigger names in pop but he has also consistently worked with artists from the indie world such as Troye Sivan,. Lucia, and How To Dress Well. His influence and style is far reaching, currently dominating Billboard charts as well as shaping the musical realm outside the sphere of pop. Antonoffs own music, and work as producer, has always split the difference between two worlds. It is somehow pop but not, somehow indie but not. Whatever he is doing it is working. This year alone, Antonoff has not only released an album under the name Bleachers, but he has worked with Lorde, Banks,. Vincent, P! Nk, Carly Rae Jepsen, Killers, and Swift. Hes become one of the core Go To guys in the music industry, name that seems to be constantly thrown around whenever pop Artist start recording. You know him even if you dont think you do. Jack Antonoffs breakout moment came when his band Fun released We Are Young in 2012. I didnt understand We Are Young when it first came out. It didnt sound like pop music to me. It was catchy, it was anthemic, but the chorus wasnt right. The song builds as it should but the chorus doesnt break into propulsive sprint. Instead, it slows down and becomes heavy and loud. The majority of pop songs are typically crafted to soundtrack night Out, whether it moment youre pre-gaming or youre hitting the dance floor. We are young for that. It the end of night, when Youre linking arms with your friends in Some destroyed place and drunkenly belting Out lyrics of Some Song that You only kind of know. It is a different kind of pop song to normal I didnt think it would be the number one hit. And I was hella wrong. Not only was We Are Young hit but it was a big hit. Following appearance in both Glee, and commercial that aired during Superbowl, We Are Young was quickly propelled to the top of the charts where it spent six weeks as America's number one Song. Fun later go on not only to win Song Of Year at the Grammys but also take the title of Best New Artist, success that Fun failed to fully capitalise on as they quickly disband. But as chief creative voice behind the group, Antonoff's career was really only just beginning as a producer and as a songwriter. The sound that he broke out with We Are Young was an anomaly in 2012, but over the years it has gradually become what pop sounds like. Its norm. And Antonoff is an architect. This evolution was not immediate.

Bigger choruses

Everybody wants You, by trio Red Hearse, is a sneaky song that creeps up on You, working its Magic by insinuation. The song begins in dulcet mode, with singer Sam Dew crooning over synthesizer chords. Then other sounds surface and spread across the stereo spectrum: beat that begin as an almost inaudible pulse; harmony vocals that swell and swoop; distort keyboard, Pan hard to the right channel, Where it buzzes in your ear like a housefly or disquieting think you ca push from your mind. By second chorus, song has turned rhapsodic, ballad of unrequited longing that seemed engineered to fill the darkened high school gymnasium with slow-dancing couples. I am not the romantic type, Dew sings, but the music says otherwise. Taxonomically, everybody wants you is tricky to place. The song sits between genres and eras: bit Pop, bit R & B, bit hip-hop, with hints of 60s bubble gum, 70s easy listening, 80s synth-Pop and other vintage styles. Perhaps the best way to put it is that it is definitively song of right now, and Red Hearse is a very 2020 kind of band, which is to say, hardly a band at all. The group consists of Dew, singer-songwriter from Chicago; Los Angeles-base producer Mark Spears, best known for his work with Kendrick Lamar; and songwriter-producer Jack Antonoff. In 2017, three musicians began hanging around LA Recording studio, batting ideas back and forth. When those impromptu sessions lead to an album, Red Hearse do a few shows at small clubs and appear on late-night talk show. In those performances, group replicate conditions of music creation, playing while seated at a small circular table: Dew clutching microphone, Sounwave pecking at laptop and sequencer, Antonoff hunching over the keyboard. It was cool, Antonoff say. We decide: Lets do it like what it is. Let just let it be that. You know, just some friends that get into a room and make music. Friends that get into a room and make music is tidy summation of Antonoffs professional practice. At 35, he is one of the most prolific and in-demand musicians in American Pop. In addition to Red Hearse, he is frontman of Bleachers, anthemic rock band. Hes best known as a studio whiz, who, over the past decade, has become the go-to producer for several of the world's biggest and most intriguing recording artists, nearly all of them women. Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Lorde,. Vincent, these stars have gravitated to Antonoff because of his flair for hooks and cleverness as producer and arranger. They are also drawn by Antonoff's reputation as generous collaborators who reject sexism and Svengalism that has often shaped power relations between male producers and female performers. But what set Antonoff apart, above all, is that homey friends-In-aroom approach persona, vibe, that is more artisanal maker than music-industry macher. Yet he turns out industrial-strength product, at a fearsome rate.

Intimate songwriting

When Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff announced their breakup last month, after five years together, speculation arisen immediately. At one point, rumors around Bleachers frontmans new love interest were so pervasive, Antonoff took to Twitter to ask everyone to stop reducing his life to dumb hetero normative gossip. Since then, those romantic rumors have run rampant, pairing Antonoff with everyone from up-and-coming model to his songwriting companion Lordeand even his ex-girlfriend, Dunham. According to Page Six, it is entirely possible that Dunham and Antonoff are reuniting, as theyve reportedly been in constant communication since break-up. Same sources say hes been supportive of Dunham since she underwent hysterectomy. Taylor Swift songwriter even re-tweet her Vogue article in show of support, calling it a beautiful piece. Despite their continued friendship, Antonoff has been caught canoodling in public twice since break-up. First, it was with aspiring model and artist Carlotta Kohl. Us Weekly was convinced they were dating, after images of them dining at Gemma surfaced towards the end of January. Its likely that he meet Kohl when she pose for. Vincents ' latest album is Masseduction, which Antonoff produce. As it turns out, Kohl is also.
