That time of year when the mould in your flat is starting to look like unreported alien life forms. So what do we do when times are shitty? We look to young people to fix it, obviously, because they have more vitality than the rest of us and know things that we don't.
Anyone who says youth is wasted on the young probably hasn't been paying attention. Mixing pop with a little hip-hop and dance, here's a playlist that shines a light on the sound and vibe of the generation coming up now: music for—and by—the future. We regularly update these tracks, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
Jenny is a twenty-something-year-old who loves writing novels, poems and articles about her experiences in life. There's no denying that many new artists are rising today but the more interesting part is that a lot of them are very young. Amazingly, these young artists are already proving just how much talent they can share with the world.

Or, how Frankie Avalon came to be stuck on my bedroom door. Rock and Roll was born of Rhythm and Blues. A vitality.
Pop music oriented toward teenagers has been common since at least the 's with the heyday of Frank Sinatra and bobbysoxers. A significant common characteristic of teen-oriented pop has been that it is designed from the top down with a producer or record company executive creating the concept then hiring a performer to carry it out on stage and on record. Teen pop took a backseat to the musical revolutions prompted by the Beatles and Bob Dylan in the mid's, but by the early 's teen-oriented pop music was back.
Sounds like teen spirit. It should come as no surprise that this dream-pop idol hailing from down under is quickly on the rise. Mallrat, AKA Grace Shaw, broke out on the Brisbane bar circuit before she was even old enough to drink, booking small shows until she became a festival regular and began opening for international acts on their world tours hi, Post Malone!
