Groove is the latest single released by the comedy duo (Nerd Vandals) turned music duo known as Jack and Jack. Still in their teens, Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky's bond and friendship dates all the way back to the first day of kindergarten.
They have released several single songs. In 2014, their single titled Wild Life (2nd video below) hit #2 on iTunes and #87 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Groove seems to have various quintessential contagious hit pop song qualities going for it and it does indeed groove hard enough that it might just deserve to surpass their previous chart records. The video for the song, below, was directed and edited by Andre LaDon. For those interested, LaDon was kind enough to share the details of how he used used a green screen along with which effects and backgrounds he used to finish the video.

Today, Muse released their latest video to their song titled Defector, a single from their upcoming album titled Drones. Drones will be released on June 8, 2015.
The content of the song Defector and the title of the album is very timely, considering the U.S. and the world now lives under a police state that JFK, Dwight D. Eisenhower, George Orwell, Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Ron Paul all have warned us about.
Muse has taken off in a new direction with another fresh approach. Their last two albums were self produced. This time they collaborated with legendary producer Mutt Lange. If you are not familiar with Mutt, here is a listing of his top 10 albums according to Eduardo Rivadavia of UltimateClassicRock.Com.
It would be nice to see other music acts of substance devote more albums to such topics, rather than singing songs that are morally empty but full of great bling. Are we drones or are we defectors? That's a good question we should all ask ourselves.

Just in case you missed it, here is one other single/music-video titled Psycho from the upcoming Drones album. This song could not more perfectly frame how our military molds the minds of kids who enroll.

Muse has been featured on our network two other times in the past. Long ago on our blog archive, we featured a nice live take at filmed at Wembly of the group performing the Nina Simone classic titled Feeling Good, where the audience was singing along. That was heavy. And, in October 2012 on our sister site TheIndies.Com, we featured one of their music videos titled Madness.
