Brother-and-sister duo Blondfire have been making music together since they were children. Now they've signed to Warner Bros. for their major label debut, Young Heart. It will feature "Waves," an acoustic track that highlights the pair's knack for dreamy melodies and electronic rhythms.

"This is our attempt at a dark disco sound," member Bruce Driscoll tells Rolling Stone. "The song talks about the ebb and flow of life and how all things good and bad come in waves."

Young Heart was recorded in a week at Bruce's home studio and Hollywood's Wax Studios. It was self-produced by him and sister Erica Driscoll and will be released in 2013.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
