  • TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist Interview: Rixton

    Posted on 03/11/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Fresh Artist: Rixton


    If you've never heard of Rixton, let us enlighten you: The four-piece pop-punk outfit comprised of Jake, Danny, Charley, and Lewi, hail from Manchester, UK and have a sunny sound that is every bit roll-your-windows-down and cry-your-eyes-out good.

    The guys came on to the scene with a viral video for their song "Make Out" which parodied a few iconic videos (oh, you know, from like Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Miley Cyrus) but they're about to make some serious waves all on their own. Each of the four lads sings, they all play instruments, and they've got personality for DAYS. Check out our exclusive Q&A with the latest Fresh Artist below!

    1. If you had to describe your sound in three words that begin with the letter "S" what would they be?
    Sexy. Sultry. Super.

    2. Every single member of the band sings. How do you think that sets you apart from other acts? Have you ever done an impromptu a cappella performance?
    It shows our overall musicality. One of the songs on our album is a capella.

    3. What was it like opening up for Justin Bieber at Brooklyn's Barclays Center with just 24 hours' notice? Did you even have time to get nervous?
    It was mad!

    4. What is one moment so far in your career that's made you wonder, "How did we get here?"
    We met Tom Hanks and Will Smith recently. We all look up to those men and being in their presence was immense!

    5. In addition to your original music, you've made a name for yourself on YouTube with brilliant covers of popular songs. Of the famous artists you've covered, with whom would you like to collaborate most?
    We'd love to work with Drake.

    6. The last question's for Lewi: You're rarely seen without your backpack on, so what's in it?
    You'll never know!

    RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
    And now, the rapid fire round! We asked Rixton a series of silly questions, and here's the first thing that came to mind!

    Rixton: Rapid Fire

  • TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist Interview: New Politics

    Posted on 02/24/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Fresh Artist: New Politics

    If you thought Denmark's greatest gift to the United States was the country's delicious namesake puff pastry, then think again. New Politics are a three-piece band who burst on the scene after relocating from their hometown of Copenhagen to the artistic paradise of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and have since won many international hearts! The Danish-bred lads serve a unique blend of pop-tinged punk, and their performances are full of energy, heart, and even acrobatics. Check out our exclusive Q&A with our brand-new Fresh Artist below!

    1. You're originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, but have since relocated to Brooklyn, New York. Have any music influences traveled with you from Denmark to the States?
    Yes. We are very influenced by American and British music, but we also have our own Scandinavian music that has influenced us, as well.

    2. You're currently on the Harlem, USA Tour and will eventually gear up for the Monumentour this summer with Fall Out Boy and Paramore. What's the best part about being on tour?
    Meeting all of awesome fans. And playing our music every night. Touring with other bands is always inspiring and keeps us working hard.

    3. David, you incorporate break-dancing into a lot of your live shows, and it's featured in your video for "Harlem." How did you get into break-dancing? How has the break-dancing culture and/or Harlem influenced your sound?
    I got into break-dancing as a kid with my friends in Copenhagen. I fell in love with it and never stopped. Dancing has always been a part of New Politics and, yes, I am heavily influenced by all dancing cultures. It was surreal visiting Harlem because it is one of the birth places if hip-hop.

    4. What's the best and/or weirdest thing that's ever happened at a New Politics show?
    There are so many crazy things that happen on the road. Pinpointing one thing is hard. But if we had to pick one the best moments was performing on Jimmy Fallon. It was so unreal being on that stage with Jimmy Fallon to the right of us and the Roots to the left. Mind blowing!

    5. If you could collaborate with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
    We all have different people we would love to collaborate with. A few of them would be John Lennon, Kurt Cobain or Elvis Presley.

    RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
    And now, the rapid fire round! We asked New Politics a series of silly questions, and here's the first thing that came to their mind!

    CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: Vanilla

    ALL-TIME FAVORITE SONG: Billy Jean

    TATTOOS OR PIERCINGS: Tattoos

    FAVORITE PLACE TO PLAY: Las Vegas

    PRE-SHOW RITUAL: A good nights rest, and our dis-harmonic circle we do before we play.

    ULTIMATE COLLABORATION: Dave Grohl, Pharell Williams, Max Martin

    ZOMBIE OR VAMPIRE?: Zombie

    WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY YOU IN MOVIE?: Will Ferrell

    IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?: Flying

  • Top 10 Ways to Have the Best New Year's Eve Ever!

    Posted on 12/27/2013 by Rachel1016

    Degrassi: Everything You've Done

    The Countdown to the New Year is ON! We're closing out 2013 by taking a look back at all of the amazing things that happened this year, and whether you've got big plans or are looking forward to a low-key hangout with your BBFs (furry and otherwise), we've got a few tips for making this New Year's one to remember!

    And don't forget to join us for TeenNick Top 10's New Years Eve Countdown! Starting at 11pm ET on Tuesday, December 31st, special guests Echosmith and 4Count will join our Master of Ceremonies Mr. Nick Cannon for a night of music, memories, and FUN!

    1.Decorate! New Year's Eve is one of the only acceptable holidays where using sparkles, glitter, and confetti in excess is allowed. String up the streamers, throw some confetti around, and blow up the balloons � the more color, the better!

    2.Pile on NYE swag! What other time of year can you wear glasses, top hats, and chain necklaces with giant numbers on them? Yes, New Year's accessories are ridiculous and over the top, but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

    3. Make some noise! The louder, the better � it's time to celebrate! Grab those noisemakers, horns, hand clappers, whistles, blowouts, and party poppers and start 2014 on a loud note!

    4. Dress up! Look, we love sweatpants as much as the next couch potato, but it's New Year's Eve. Why not slip on some fancy shoes, wear that nice crisp shirt, or sprinkle yourself in fun jewelry?! Or, if you're looking for something even subtler, swipe a little glitter on your face or mix it in with your nail polish or lip-gloss. Whether you're going out to a full-blown fancy party or ringing in the New Year from the comfort of your couch, those little additions will totally help put you in the spirit.

    5. Dance! Whether you're a twerker, a mosher, or a sidestep shuffler, it's one of the best days of the year to dance like no one's watching! Play DJ and pick your favorite songs from the year OR have your friends each pick five songs and create an uber playlist that all will enjoy!

    6. Chow down! Have some of your friends bring their favorite small dish to share. Crowd-pleasing thought starters include chips and dip, pigs in a blanket, or puppy chow! Not only will you spend less time prepping for the party but you'll be sure to have a great sampling of appetizers to keep everyone satisfied throughout the night.

    7. Game on! Let's face it; everyone's got a little competitive spirit in them. Dust off those board games from the closet or show off your Dance Dance Revolution skills. Either way, your night is bound to end in laughs. It's a win-win!

    8. Traditions for life! Did you know the Spaniards have a New Years Eve tradition of eating 12 grapes (one for every chime of the clock) at midnight? Or did you know that in Mexico, it' is tradition to write down a list of the bad events over the past 12 months and then throw it into a fire to help remove any negative energy at the start of 2014? Why not partake in some worldly traditions or make a new one up with your friends!

    9. Capture the moment…and save it for the next day! Posting photos is so second nature now that sometimes we forget to actually live in the moment and enjoy it. When you're snapping pics, remember to put the phone down once in a while and enjoy your company. Post them the next day when people are more likely to see them�and when you can take your time choosing cool filters and writing funny captions.

    10. Show the love! You know it's coming so there is no excuse to not be properly prepared when that midnight kiss comes along. Pop a mint, brush your teeth, apply that Chap Stick, do whatever you need to ensure that the first kiss (or hug with your BFF) of 2014 will be the best!
