July 25, 2021

  Los Angeles-based punkband The Linda Lindas released their highly anticipated new single “Oh!” a few days ago. “‘Oh!’ is one of the first singles we wrote masked and distanced during the pandemic”, the band recollects. “It started with the main-riff that Bela brought into the band. Eloise wrote the verses and Lucia and Mila the refrains. The song is about trying to help someone and having it blow up in your face.” The colorful and funny video was directed by Ryan Baxley (Best Coast, The Regrettes, Charlie Hanson) and shows the American skateboarder and photographer Ray Barbee. Additionally, the song is played in the trailer for the Netflix series “The Chair” with Golden Globe-winner Sandra Oh as the main character. “The Chair” is about Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Oh), who orientates herself in her new role as head of the English faculty at the renowned Pembroke University.

July 25, 2021

Grand Rapids band SLEEP WAKER — guitarists Jake Impellizzeri and Jason Caudill, vocalist Hunter Courtright, drummer Frankie Mish, and bassist Aaron Lutas — have shared the video for the title track of their new album “Alias”, out July 23, via UNFD. “‘Alias’ is the final piece of the album”, offers Mish. “It’s the culmination of years of work from us, and concepts that have slowly been building since the beginning of the band. We specifically wanted this song to hit all the points on this album and really show the evolution. By the time you get to ‘Distance,’ the final song, you’ve come full circle and really feel the journey and full breath of the songs”. This concept is mirrored in the music video. Mish explains: “Our music videos have always had a conceptual B story — even the playthroughs. We hope that now one of the final pieces has been revealed, we’ll be transitioning into a new chapter of Sleep Waker as a whole”. Alias, which follows the band’s 2017 debut EP “Lost in [Read More]

We Came As Romans share video for their new song “Darkbloom”

July 17, 2021

We Came As Romans – Joshua Moore [guitar], Dave Stephens [vocals], Lou Cotton [guitar], Andy Glass [bass], and David Puckett [drums] – have shared the video for their brand new single “Darkbloom”. With sharp synths and riffs that could chip that paint off the wall, “Darkbloom” represents the next chapter for WCAR. In Fall 2019, the band shared two new tracks: “From the First Note” and “Carry the Weight”. These songs marked the first material the band released after singer Kyle Pavone’s tragic passing in August 2018. “The idea behind ‘Darkbloom’ is that even through the darkest, most difficult times of life, there is still the potential, or possibility, of personal growth” says Moore “As long as we’re not willing to completely concede to the negative emotion or thought that feels like it has taken over, then we can be strong enough to overcome and push through to a different future. This song is about having the mind to be able to acknowledge the reality of situations we’re in, but having the strength to weather [Read More]

Kickstarting a new era with a refreshed but familiar sound, The Bottom Line have created a track that will be ingrained in your brain within seconds. The pacey and upbeat track has been left open for interpretation and has grown its own meaning since its initial inception pre-pandemic. Reunited with producer Romesh Dodangoda, The Bottom Line jumped into the Marshall Studio to carry on where they left off after the “No Vacation” session back in 2018, creating a track that is bouncy and captivating. Commenting on the track, Vocalist Cal Amies says: “It’s a bit of a weird one to say exactly what ‘Long Time Coming’ is written about as when we first started the writing process it was before the pandemic. We had been let down by a few people and even felt like we’d been advantage of in some cases. Over the recording process [Read More]
