Our Spotlight Artist is Survival Guide and watch the new video for One To One

October 29, 2016

  Today our featured artist is Survival Guide.  Survival Guide is from our nearby town of Petaluma, CA and in 2014 was named one of the Top 12 Bay Area Bands by San Francisco’s premier rock radio station, Live 105. It features California vocalist and keyboardist Emily Whitehurst.  Her music truly captures your attention as she brings to life her powerful vocals that awakens your senses. Survival Guide recently released a new compelling video for One To One.  On the song and new music video, Whitehurst says, “The lyrics describe the way there are two sides to every relationship. As a twist, we (Jim Agius and Tim Rose of Dogfilm and I) decided to make the video show how there may be a side of the relationship that’s hidden. Our main goal was to make the viewer feel creeped out by leaving my character in the dark. It reminds me of an old “don’t open that door!” type film. Funnily enough, I actually did feel a little creeped out seeing that roomful of photos — Jim found every one [Read More]

Our Featured Spotlight Band is a powerful rock trio out of Gothenburg. They are LÅNGFINGER. They have just released a music video for their track Fox Confessor which is off their recently released album, Crossyears.’The ten-track offering was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden’s Welfare Sounds Studio with additional recordings by LÅNGFINGER at Beduin HQ, mixed by Olle Björck, and mastered by Daniel Johansson.’ They comment about the video/song, “‘Fox Confessor’ is the first collaboration between LÅNGFINGER and cinematographer Anders Bryngel. We were exploring the idea of working together for some years and with the new album looming, it was more appropriate than ever. One day we devised a syndicate. We then determined that the effort should be focused on a narrative and as the storyline progressed we let it evolve naturally with the group’s dynamic. A spontaneous process driven by our collective efforts. As for the actual song, which like many of our songs, established itself as an instrumental; was inspired by our favorite Krautrock bands from the late sixties. That was before [Read More]
