SPOTLIGHT BAND: Italian alt-rockers Soldiers of a Wrong War and their new single, Yeah!

April 10, 2017

We are bringing the spotlight onto a great alternative rock band from Italy. Allow me to introduce you to Soldiers of a Wrong War. The band has released their new single, Yeah! which is off their second studio album, Countdowns. The new album is set to release April 18th and is now available for pre-orders viaiTunes. Bassist Adin Sulic comments, “When we wrote this song we were like: ‘This stuff sounds insanely like one of those rock’n’roll songs that make you wanna instantly dance and have fun!’. If you listen to the song, you can feel influences from the old school rock’n’roll scene of the mid 60s, early 70s, mixed with some alternative rock vibes from the ’90s. The catchphrase in the refrain, which is ‘It doesn’t make much sense, but I like it,’ basically represents the world we live in today.” “The infosphere is flooded with tons of content through social media every single day and it looks like you really don’t need a reason to like something. Even if it doesn’t make sense, if you [Read More]

First Spotlight of 2017 goes to Jonny Couch

January 3, 2017

    The first Spotlight of 2017 goes to Jonny Couch. Jonny released one of our favorite vinyls of 2016. He released his debut EP, Animal Instinct in November 2016. The five song EP was pressed on vinyl with digital card on Jonny’s own Damaged Sofa Records. Longtime drummer on the NY music scene, Jonny Couch has come from behind the kit in his new self-named band to get behind the microphone. On his forthcoming 5 song EP, Animal Instinct, he plays drums, organ and synths on all tracks. While Jonny has a band behind him in a live setting, he plays drums and keyboards on the record. Jonny combines styles from years in NYC playing punk rock in the mid-aughts with The Choke (who toured with Buzzcocks and other punk rock luminaries) and earlier this decade with his dance-pop act LoveCryme (whose vocalist went on to do choreography for Kiesza). The resulting sound? A leather capped New Romantic disguised as Brando-Elvis belting out anthemic heartbreak missives of pain. The EP was recorded in Savannah, [Read More]
