We made it everyone, it’s Friday.
Do you feel like this week kind of blew over your head? If so, don’t worry, I’m here to recap what you missed. Merch drops, music news, and upcoming events are coming your way.
First, let’s discuss an update that literally nobody asked for. We joined the Tik Tok cult. Have you seen our “About Us” page? We are a FULL SERVICE merchandising company. Part of that service is entertainment. You’re welcome. Feel free to let us know any dances you want to see us perform, what specific artist merch you want us to wear, and which of our artists’ songs you want to hear. You other merch companies could never.
Okay back to our regularly scheduled programming. We’re going to talk about burning a hole in your wallet. There were some pretty steamy merch drops this week, if I do say so myself. We’ll start off with Taylor Janzen, because I haven’t talked your ear off about her enough this week. We just launched a few of her awesome items on our store yesterday. My favorite? The puff ink hoodie. The back reads, “Sad Songs For Everyone,” in adorable fun writing. I mean, c’mon, puff ink is so nostalgic. Everyone’s childhood includes them somewhere, doodling on something, with puffy paint. Am I wrong? Don’t worry though, if hoodies and puffy ink aren’t your thing, we have a few more things to choose from. Maybe you’re old school and want to pick up a cd to play in your car, or if you’re cool, a Walkman. Throwback. We also have hats, to give you protection from this warm sun coming back, or t-shirts to rock at work. Whatever mood you’re in, find it now in our store!
Next up we have The Used. This one is particularly cool because the whole website is an interactive experience. With items that haven’t been released yet, a tarot card holds its place. Cool, right? They’re basically predicting your future for you, and your destiny is to purchase some merch. Currently, they are expected to have four drops. Today marked number two! They marked this next drop with a new dyed tee. If you look at the previous drop, you’ll notice a running theme! However, with this dyed tee, they shook it up a little bit. My personal favorite, “The Hanged Man Tee,” sold out extremely fast. Which is why I’d definitely advise setting reminders for the rest of their drops! Each design is unique, and I can’t wait to see what the cards predict next!
Lastly, an artist you can check out right here, is Hands Like Houses. Is it just me, or does tour merch just vibe differently? In the best way. That’s what we have here! Whether you saw them or not, these items are pretty sick. Each piece has a different vibe, making it easy to find something for everyone! Maybe you saw them at a show, but you were too busy living in the moment to really stop and take a look. Now’s your chance! If we’re playing favorites here, like I have been this whole time, the Mandala Speckle Long Sleeve is my winner. Mandala’s always give me a sort of mystical vibe. I feel like everyone loves them too. However, they’re a limited item, so get it before it’s gone!
Now, some music news. Everyone’s favorite sad boy, Blackbear, has been topping Spotify’s hits charts for a hot minute now. With “me & ur ghost,” circulating the top hits charts, it makes you wonder, is everyone haunted by an ex lately? If so, I feel for you. However, if any of you have fallen behind on pop culture news, like I did a while ago, Blackbear has a cub! Just a couple weeks ago, a little baby boy came into the world. Will his music take a shift from sad boy club, to happy new dad club? I guess we’ll have to wait and see. For all you Lil Xan fans, he just released a new single today, “Wide Awake.” For another emo boy, this song is relatively upbeat. All our other favorite artists seem to be currently busy creating new magic for our ears. Or, having the time of their lives touring. We love to see it!
So, what do we have to look forward to besides new music, hopefully? Well, as a little recap, you can be sure to have exciting weekly merch drops by The Used. Also, has anyone noticed festival season is quickly approaching? Excited to see the festival drops all of our favorites have. Who are you most excited to see this year? For all of our electronic music fans, Madeon is always hard at work visualizing new merch concepts to surprise his fans. Let me just say, what he’s working on now is HOT. He’s also playing plenty of festivals all over the world this year, so you can’t miss him!
