Critical Voices: Sleeping With Sirens, Gossip

There comes a time in the career of countless artists when they decide it’s time to go mainstream in a maybe disappointing though understandable move to keep their music relevant. To be fair, “sellout” shouldn’t be taken strictly as a negative—think Taylor Swift’s 1989 or Maroon 5’s Overexposed—but it’s always sad to see artists cast...
