8. MUSIC: “Falling in Love Will Kill You,” Mat Devine
Kill Hannah front man Mat Devine will be releasing his first solo album, Gold Blooded, under the name “Wrongchilde.” “Falling in Love Will Kill You” is the beautifully melodic first single from the project with duet vocals from Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. According to Out, the song was originally intended as a male-female collaboration, but Devine wanted to challenge the social construct of duet performances and create a more inclusive space in music for LGBT people. Devine explains, “By choosing to release 'Falling in Love Will Kill You' as a guy-on-guy duet, I’m hoping we can ignore the expectations of the music industry and make it accessible to everyone. And to me, that’s what makes it a modern love song.” — Scott Ragan
