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]

Electronic pop duo FYOHNA set to perform at Hotel Utah in San Francisco on April 23rd.

April 10, 2017

The electronic pop duo consisting of  vocalist Katarina Gleicher and producer/multi instrumentalist Elliot Glasser are set to perform in San Francisco later this month. They will be playing at Hotel Utah on April 23rd. Founded on the close relationship between its two members, FYOHNA are able to blur the sometimes rigid roles of songwriter, instrumentalist, performer, and producer, each member an equal and flexible part throughout the creation and delivery of a song. Their live performances engage with spontaneous voice-sampling, beat-sequencing, and loop-triggering by each member as they adapt their constructed songs to the stage. Check out their new song Ghost Heart which is off their soon to be released self-titled debut EP on April 28th. We will see if we can bring you coverage of their upcoming show. For more details on the Hotel Utah and pick up tickets head over www.ticketfly.com. Make sure to visit their social media sites for updated information.
