Check out indie alt-pop artist Dutch Party and their new track Blade Runner

August 9, 2017

Dutch Party is the creative indie alt-pop creation by Ken Franklin.Dutch Party have just released their new track Blade Runner. The infectious track is the first song of their upcoming EP Combat Pop. The self-produced EP is set to release this fall. Take a listen here:   About Dutch Party: Originally hailing from Twin Peaks in San Francisco, Ken Franklin started writing and recording music after he discovered a recording booth in a small closet beneath the stairs of his parents house, that had been hidden for decades behind a wall of boxes. Inside was a reel-to-reel tape machine, an echo box, and two guitars which Franklin soon used to experiment with different sounds and sonic textures to create his own songs. After moving to LA, Ken started indie alt pop band, Dutch Party, while living in Echo Park with the intent of adding more subversion to the American airwaves. Dutch Party creates music affectionately referred to as “pop with a purpose”.  The band has quickly found success with placements on various networks including ABC and MTV [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]

July 17, 2017

New Hope Club in Santa Rosa opening for Sabrina Carpenter. We were so excited to catch the first opener of the Sabrina Carpenter show at the Luther Burbank Center. Check out our post on Sabrina’s show here. Her Summer De-Tour is travelling across the country and truly has some crowd pleasing openers. New Hope Club is a British pop trio and they were the perfect start for the evening. They delivered an energetic set that had the girls in screams and on their feet for the entire set. These boys are not only charming but have the musicianship to take them to new heights. New Hope Club was recently selected as a nominee for Teen Choice Awards under the category Next Big Thing. Well, let me tell you – they are well on their way! We hope you get a chance to vote for them by heading over to http://www.teenchoice.com/ We won’t be surprised if they take the win!

Ramonda Hammer releases new alt-grunge-rock single, Bender and we are hooked on it!

June 28, 2017

We are hooked on the new track, Bender from Ramonda Hammer. It is an addictive track that brings together grunge and rock and swaddles it in 90’s alternative vibes and singes it with pop catchiness. We love it! The song is off their new EP Destroyers which is set for an August 4th release. Devin Davis comments about the new song, “I wrote ‘Bender’ when I was binge-watching Shameless for two weeks straight and I couldn’t get off the couch to do anything productive. In retrospect, I guess I could call it “research” or whatever, because I ended up writing this song. But yeah the lyrics are really just a conversation between two opposing sides in one’s brain. The verses ask questions from the more sane, healthy part of one’s psyche, and the choruses respond from the anxiety-ridden, depressed, and very frustrated side. And the reason this person (okay, it’s me!) is so effing frustrated is because they care so so so much, but when crippling depression sets in from time to time, when they [Read More]

Alt-pop duo Heirsound release their new music video for Heaven With You

June 16, 2017

The alt-pop duo of Heirsound which is Alexa San Román & Dane Petersen have just released a music video for their song, Heaven With You. The song is off their EP LAYERS, a three-volume collection of EPs that progresses through deeper levels of emotions as the layers unravel into a story. It is a great emotionally driven track that brings authenticity through it’s raw vulnerable feel transitioning into acceptance. It is a track that captures your attention and has you revisiting the first volumes.  On the song, Alexa San Román states: “Beginning Volume 3 with the sound of rain that you hear at the end of Volume 2 – ‘Heaven with You’ revisits the same story from Volume 1 except this time with a feeling of acceptance & letting go.  This song is the conclusion to the first narrative throughout Layers.  Although it is a separate narrative from the track ‘Next Life,’ the two are connected in that you must let go of one person to hold on to another.“  Check out the video here:   [Read More]
