Click to listen to Twin Sister's 'Bad Street'

Brooklyn-based quintet Twin Sister released their first full-length album, the dreamy In Heaven, on September 27th. Earlier this summer, the band filmed the video for lead single "Bad Street" during a neighborhood party at singer Andrea Estella's childhood home on Long Island. "Bad Street" is a cheerful pop song with a funky guitar riff that creates a bright, summery vibe. Twin Sister's keyboardist, Udbhav Gupta, tells Rolling Stone that "Bad Street" is "sewn together from many other songs. We had the easiest time recording it, and the video is a representation of what the song is about – being poor, but still having fun." In Heaven is available in stores now, but you can download "Bad Street" for free here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
