Check out this just-posted video of L.A.-based trio Harletson covering The 1975's "Paris." Just make sure your volume isn't set too high; the swarm of excited girls that could follow may put you in danger.
Harleston, who came together just last year, is managed by Faculty. We recommend you keep an eye on the harmonizing, acoustic guitar-wielding lads, also known as Nathan Harrington, Jackson Singleton and Weston Wilson. Early press looks include features from the likes of PopCrush, Just Jared and Tiger Beat.
KIIS FM’s Ryan Seacrest knew better than to let the HITS mishpuchah into the gates of Wango Tango, which featured performances by Ariana Grande, ZAYN, Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor, Fifth Harmony, Iggy Azalea, DNCE, Mike Posner, and more. In true weasel fashion, we sent our undercover spy Maxine Krugman (the brunette pictured right), daughter of marketing consultant Jay Krugman, to the Top 40 fest this weekend to get us the juicy deets. Take it away, Maxine.
My personal favorites were definitely The Chainsmokers and Kygo. Gwen Stefani gave a performance reminiscent of her good ol' days with hits including "Hollaback Girl", "Rich Girl" and "Whatcha Waiting For", all of which the crowd went crazy for. The performances were fantastic, but the hard part about attending radio concerts is that the sets run too short and always leave us wanting more. All in all, the show was great and continues to be one of my favorite concerts to attend year after year.
