Having already enjoyed a taste of industry success as a member of Suckers, who split in 2012, Pan knew he was far from done and wanted to keep pursuing his passion for music in a new way. The path he took led him to team up with his now brother-in-law James Evans to create Zippy.
The duo hit the studio and recorded a collection of 12 mesmerizing tracks that make up Zippy’s self-titled debut album which is out on Friday and ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to exclusively present its first stream.
The songs themselves are immensely memorable; each one perfectly suited to its place on the album and the end result is a record that will stay with you long after the last note has played from your speakers.
Give Zippy a listen below, and you can keep up to date with the duo on Facebook and Instagram. Header photo credit Rachel Tervenski.
Now aged seventeen, Ventresca has long since known that music would be a key part of her life. Having started out as a member of the Canadian Dance Unit, who together won multiple awards, she then decided to stretch her wings and began to experiment with song-writing and exploring her vocal abilities.
With a mini tour of Germany and with a steadily growing fan-base to her name, Ventresca is proving herself to be a real talent with a bright future, and her latest single “Craving,” the video which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere, offers fans a brilliant pop track that blends both funk and disco with powerful lyrics.
the video for the single, Ventresca says:
“You’re really gonna get 2
videos in one, and your gonna get to decide what video you want to see. In
our video, you’re literally going to enter a dream world. Lets’ put it this way, people are going to be
having a lot of cravings for my music.”

There are perhaps few artists around who have become a staple
across several genres of music quite like Eileen Carey. The singer-songwriter
from Ohio has shared the stage with acts including The Motels, Jefferson
Starship and Don Mclean and has been a near permanent feature on the New Music
Weekly charts over the past three years.
Carey saw out 2019 by being named the Hot AC/AC Breakthrough artist of the year and now, at the start of this new decade, as someone who is already well established for writing songs so many can relate to, Carey is kicking off 2020 with the release of her single “Finally”, the video for which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.
Asked about the meaning/story to the song and the creative process
to the video, Carey says:
emotions sometimes cry out for strong language. These lyrics state in the
plainest possible way what we feel but may be hesitant to say.
“Finally” is the most unusual music video I have
ever released. It came out of my long relationship with producer-director Taner
Tumkaya who collaborated with me on most of my recent music videos. Our last
music video of “Meet Me Halfway” has had 70,000+ Youtube views. After
8 years in the U.S., he returned to Germany earlier this year, so we had to
figure out a way to work. It was meant to be a lyric video initially, but in
attempting to make the lyric video more interesting we happened on this
stop-action animation. It turned out to be a great experience. It was a case of “necessity being the mother of
invention,” so to speak.”
