Interview. No Small Children: mild-mannered teachers by day, tear-your-face-off alt. rockers by night.

August 7, 2017

  Patrick O’Heffernan (Los Angeles) No Small Children is a band like no other.  Born on an elementary school playground in the spring of 2012, the trio are school teachers by day and a phenomenally successful hard rock band by night.  And they move very fast.  Three months after deciding to use their recess breaks as band practice time they had an EP out, countless shows behind them and an East Coast tour booked.  Plus, their remake of the classic Ghostbusters theme song was released by RCA records and is featured in the new Ghostbusters movie. And the band’s original song, ‘Big Steps‘, is featured in the Netflix series, Santa Clarita Diet.  They  released their third album, Hold Tight, I’m Flying, in 2015 and singles have flowed steadily since then.  Their live shows are insanely animated and can exhaust both the audience and the band. Fortunately, they were not too exhausted to talk with me before heading off on a national tour.   Patrick.  When I saw you live  you were insanely fun and so wonderfully over the top.  How did that happen? Were you always this [Read More]

Get to know Eva as she is set to release her new music video for Bad For Us

August 1, 2017

Who is Eva off stage? Eva isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill glammed-out, glitter-esque diva Barbie doll, which is what makes her such a sensation.  It should be noted that there’s a rumor—and this is just gossip at this point—but there’s a rumor that she’s planning ‘the biggest pop-up glitter party the world has ever known’ for her next single Over U…  I’m sure we’ll follow up with her about that… But who is Eva off stage?   “I’m a pop artist who is very much a real person. I’m not a super diva type, I’m relatable as a person. On stage I get glammed up and love sparkles everywhere, but off stage I’m pretty normal.”   Instant Karma’s remix of Bad For Us shows us both sides of the Hollywood coin –  made for Hollywood and made in Hollywood… What differentiates Eva from the vixen DJ duo, Instant Karma, is pretty simple, which is why they make for such a bomb collaboration.  Two colored-hair, pierced up DJ beauties jaw-dropping the crowd with their looks (and music) at swanky clubs and in-the-know parties are about as [Read More]

Shatterproof release new video for their track Karma, off upcoming self titled EP

June 23, 2017

    Perfect way to kick off the weekend, we have the new music video from Shatterproof. The video is for their bad ass track, Karma. It is the  next single off their upcoming self titled EP which is set for a July 21st release.  The music video for “Karma” directed and produced by Hudson Bloom, is “the classic Mariah Carey, revenge-breakup song,” continuing the band says, “It’s about being cheated on and taking things into your own hands. This story is developed further in the actual music video for the song. A girl breaks up with Benji in the first scene. Instead of being down about it, he channels this energy into his music. The girl slowly makes her way from one band member to the next, breaking all of our hearts and eventually becoming a sort of fake mythology for how the band started. Each member joins this band and bonds over being cheated-on by the girl.”     Shatterproof has been on our highlight bands these days, as they blew us away [Read More]

Corey comments on the song, “The song re-paints the darker canvas of an era in my life with brighter colors to look back on, and carry through into a new one.” Corey brings out a raw authenticity to his music and videos, which is somewhat lacking in today’s scene.  You can’t help but fall in love with his songs and his emotionally [Read More]
