for fans of weezer, the bravery, u.s. bombs

Do you like Weezer? U.S. Bombs? Morrissey? The Bravery? Albert Hammond Jr.? Then you're going to love The Relationship, a classic American rock band consisting of Brian Bell, Nate Shaw, Jon LaRue, and Anthony Burulcich. Some of their influences are the likes of The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan and Buddy Holly, so consider us sold on 'em.

A few weeks ago, we got Steak (a.k.a Rachael Finley) to interview the band at Burgerama. Now, we've got the exclusive premiere for their "Young Temptations" video. Filmed in black and white, it features tons of live coverage of the band performing together IRL at the indie music festival. It'll have you wondering whether it's 2015 or 1973. Don't fight the urge—give in to the feeling and break out your fave leather jacket and biker boots.

The Relationship is currently on tour following the release of their self-titled 7-inch single, out now via Burger Records.

Liquid eyeshadow is having a moment, but eye gloss needs some attention, too

Friends don't let friends miss out on all the cool, under-the-radar things they know about, like which little-known beauty brand is low-key making the best highlighter around. And because we consider our readers to be like friends, we gather together all our best finds in our Don't Sleep On This series. Check in every week to see what things we can't wait to share with you.

Applying makeup is really an art: Everyone has their own technique, secret trick, and routine. For me, if I don't have to use a makeup brush, I'm instantly hooked on the product. (My goal is always "it looks like I tried this morning, but I really didn't.") Which is why, when Ulta was having its 21 Days of Beauty sale last year and the Butter London Eye Gloss was half-off, I knew I had to get my hands on it.

We identify

You probably know Laura Dreyfuss, aka Loladre, from her stint on Broadway in the hit show Dear Evan Hansen. Since leaving the show, she's started writing lines for herself instead of just memorizing them. She's excited to be singing as herself now, instead of as a character, and is happy that her music reflects her own feelings. She also reveals that she loves how little the songs have in common, saying it's "representative of who I am as a person."

In the video, above, the singer talks about what drove her to make her own music, and what she's still applying from her Broadway days.

Fight the fade and keep up the shine

There's really no way around it: Summer is the absolute worst time of the year to dye your hair. Thanks to culprits like chlorine, salt water, and excessive sun exposure, it can seem practically impossible to keep color looking fresh.

We talked with the "1950" singer on her new collaboration with Mark Ronson for 'Late Night Feelings'

Today, Mark Ronson releases his debut full-length album Late Night Feelings, and it's packed with stellar female vocalists straddling all genres, from Camilla Cabello to Alicia Keys to Angel Olsen to our favorite star-on-the-rise, King Princess. During this past weekend at Bonnaroo, I had the chance to pick KP's brain about their collab, "Pieces of Us," ahead of its release.
