First single, "Star-Crossed" is a catchy club anthem with Euro-style beats that picks up where Nylon's debut album, Out of Control, left off.
Last year, after the release of Out of Control, Nylon spoke about how the album was a feel good take on the dating and club scene and meeting new people.
After finding success on the European dance scene, the Pennsylvania native was looking to break on the U.S. charts.
A year later and a new album under her belt, Nylon says that she is still slowly working towards that goal, "I had a song featured on American Horror Story and on the Real L Word. That was cool and I won some songwriting contests and got runner up in some and that got me some publicity. I've had a lot of opportunities with publishing companies and gotten a lot of offers but they haven't seemed to fit. I keep moving forward and we'll see what happens."
Having her songs as placements in movies and television shows is definitely something that she hopes to continue to do in the future, "As an independent artist, that's where some of the money is. You don't really sell cds anymore so you have to look at other avenues and that is one great way to do it."
When asked what she would say to people to get them to listen to it she responded, "It's a mix of pop and dance music that is kind of similar to I would say a mix of Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson. It has that straight up pop vibe."
Currently, Nylon is at home in New Jersey resting after having sprained her ankle a couple of weeks ago.
She is eager to get back out and play some local shows and is working on trying to jump on as an opener for an upcoming tour, "Tours are a lot harder for me because I'm an independent artist. When you're independent the money has to all come from you so it's hard to get out there. I have a small crew helping me but other than that it's on me and it's a lot of work. It's just pushing, pushing, pushing. I spend a lot of time on the Internet trying to network with people. "
"I also really like that new band Chvrches," she shared. "They're so cool. They've got this cool indie vibe. That would be a fun tour."
When asked if she could go back and take part in any era in music she responded, "Wow! I'm kind of obsessed with the swing era. That would be so cool. I know my music doesn't fit that but I would love to write some swing songs and perform them because I love the dancing and it seems like such a fun time to me."
She says that the hardest part about navigating the music industry is getting heard, "Just getting people to listen to you and believe in you. It's like when you're applying for a job and you're turning in your resume. The company gets 300 resumes for one position so half of them if not three quarters of them don't get read and it's the same thing with music. You send your stuff in blind just hoping that someone will listen and you know half the time it goes into their junk folder. They don't listen because they don't know who you are."
Nylon explained that she combats this by showing up at random places to physically hand out her music, "It's you know, listen to this! I think that's really important for people to get to actually know you and your personality in order to get the music heard."
As for how Star-Crossed Lovers differs from her debut album, Nylon says that she had more control over the songs on this one and how the album was shaped, "This album is more personal to me. I had a lot more to do with the writing process with the lyrics and everything that I've been going through kind of came out on this album. The first album was kind of positive, upbeat music and this is more about heartbreak. You know, going through breakups and emotional abuse and relationships in general."
When asked what track off of the new album is her favorite and is the most personal, Nylon immediately said "Dry Rivers", "I was in a relationship when I lived in Los Angeles and I was engaged and then I broke up with him. It was not a good situation and this song kind of has to do with me moving forward and just going through that heartbreak and the emotions that go along with a break up. It's pretty hard so that's the one that hits closest to home for me."
She is currently working on a video for the song.
As far as which song is translating best live, Nylon says that "Star-Crossed has been the most fun, "I really, really love performing that one live. That's actually about the other guys I've dated since I broke up my engagement so it's another song that kind of hits home. You know, just kind of going through these people you're dating and finding that nothing ever seems to work out. It's just asking why are we star-crossed lovers and maybe, for whatever reason, I'm supposed to be single right now. It has translated really well because it has this big chorus and is upbeat and everyone can sing along with it. It's really fun."
One of the things she loves about the new album is the fact that its personal aspects are connecting with her fans, "The last album was more about partying and dancing but this one is nice because the fans can really relate to it. The songs just hit them and they say we really what you're talking about. Each person has their own interpretation of them, which is awesome. That's really what I wanted to happen because it was a really emotional experience and hard to go through and it's nice to see others responding to it."
As for where she wants to go next, Nylon discussed the fact that she has already begun work on some new songs that may make her next album, "I was just out in L.A. a few months ago and I got three new songs back that I'm really excited about. We mixed them and I think we'll have a new song out in the next few months. There's a single called "Indestructible". It's kind of another break up dance song but it's for really strong women. I think that's an important message to bring across; especially for young girls. I went through a really hard time as a teenager and you kind of feel lost at times so this is just a song to give women strength."
Finally, Nylon had this message to share with her fans, "Thank you for listening! Thank you for supporting me through these years and messaging me and keeping in touch and coming out to shows. It really means a ton!"
