3. Aussie darlings Cub Sport released a stunner of a video for their hazey track “Good Guys Go.” The moody, retro-inspired clip finds lead singer Tim Nelson posing in front of a classic Mercedes; it's the unabashedly queer homage to Drive we didn’t know we needed.
4. L.A.-based singer-songwriter Terra Naomi has released “Machine Age,” a poignant reflection on Trump’s first year in office. The track captures Naomi’s post-election outrage, but also tackles an issue closer to home: upon the announcement of their wedding, her husband's family announced they could not partake because they saw her husband, a transgender man, as female and their religion does not support same-sex marriage. Proceeds of the track will be donated to GLAAD, among other organizations.
