You may not know his name, but you definitely know his music. K Camp, the artist behind some of the biggest dance crazes and party anthems, has dropped Kiss 5, a deluxe version of his star-studded R&B album “for the ladies” (as he likes to say).

If you’ve never heard gay rock music, there’s no better place to start than Fleece. Montreal based Fleece is made up of Matt, Megan, Ethan, and Jameson.

Everything they said felt too important to cut, sort of like an inside joke we were all apart of. Their introspective look at their creative process and openness about their growth was refreshing. Interviews like this are one of the few things that are getting me through this weird, perpetual purgatory that we’re all living in. It only took us two Zoom calls and twice the amount of time we planned for, but we did it. You can watch the full thing below.
