Social House Is The Music Duo You Never Knew You Needed Until Now

Say 'hello' to your new favorite pop duo.

Social House Is The Music Duo You Never Knew You Needed Until Now

I know you've heard the summer bop 'Magic In The Hamptons'. I loved this song as soon as I heard it. You also might know the recently-released pop song 'Boyfriend', featuring the pint-sized powerhouse Ariana Grande. So, when I heard the infectious beat start to play during the opening act of her Sweetener World Tour, I freaked out.

I'll be honest—I really didn't know Social House beyond "you know where I go when we're dancing … handshakes in The Hamptons and gettin' drunk in the mansions with you…"

But then I started to pay attention to the two—Mikey and Scootie—doing their thing on stage. I just couldn't take my eyes off of them because they radiated such confidence onto the audience.

As they were performing, I started to realize, okay, so these two are more than just 'Magic In The Hamptons' and 'Boyfriend'. I found myself really moving to the music, swaying my arms in the air and nodding along with the rhythm. Social House was amazing.

So the morning after the concert, I groggily opened up Spotify on my too-bright phone and opened up a playlist of all their music. They only have a handful of songs so I played each one.

By the time I was finished listening, I was instantly hooked. I saved each song, re-listening to my favorites as I got dressed for the day. I played Social House on repeat for several days. The eight songs they have were not enough—I needed more.

What got to me the most is that their music is so real.

Sure, their voices are lovely and the music itself is pleasant to listen to. Yet, their lyrics hit me in ways that so few lyrics from other artists can. Take their song 'At Least We Can Say That We Tried'. Everyone's tired of hearing the classic I-hate-my-ex breakup songs. Now, this breakup song speaks from the heart: "No hard feelings, right? I guess we can say that we tried. We just didn't get it right … Maybe in another life".

Social House isn't afraid to say it like it is. They know what message they're trying to get across with their songs and they deliver it perfectly.

My favorite song of theirs has to be 'Haunt You'. It's so heartbreakingly beautiful that I get goosebumps when I sit down and really listen to the lyrics. Some of us have been there before: when you're stuck on a person you're better off without. This person and the ways they make you feel can literally haunt you.

These two aren't finished yet. Rather, they're only getting started. If you're not fortunate enough to watch Social House perform live at the Sweetener World Tour, you've got to at least listen to their music on Spotify. Let me just say it here and now: 'you're welcome'.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.
