The 405 Premieres Nightseason

The electrifying duo Nightseason are here with their Coasts EP, a stunning collection of tracks touching on themes of love written exclusively via email. Cut from the same cloth as artists like Yoke Lore, Sir Sly, and Alt-J, Nightseason mixes alt-rock instrumentation with ambient pop elements, resulting in their moody, get-down jams.

Their new track "Wear The Treads Off" from the EP is a slow-burner, wrought with emotion and sincerity. Nightseason tells the story of someone who has given up on love as you hear the heavy-hitting line, "I don't believe in love anymore."

The 405 writes, "the track is a balmy effort, floating through the canal of downtempo alt-rock while overlooking an ambient pop landscape that one wouldn't want to dare pass up...the pair dig deep here with great empathy and strong conviction. The end result is heady and may have listeners feeling a sense of palpable desolation if their mindset is thinking 'I don't believe in love anymore' as well." 

Imperfect Fifth Premieres Vern Matz

Indie trio Vern Matz are here with their new single "Systematically Gone!" Vern Matz toes the line between indie rock, folk, and alternative rock, successfully making indie tunes for your autumn blues.

Imperfect Fifth says "It's meandering, mellifluous soundscape will keep you feeling safe and warm in the autumn months, as you seek to clear up whatever road blocks you may be experiencing."

Imperfect Fifth says of the video, "Clear, precise visuals. This video encapsulates the trio's live performances tactics, while allowing them to partake in a short film-like storyline..." 

Atwood Magazine says, "The Habits' "Calling Me Up" is special: With its crests, valleys, and lush swirls of energy, it carries a weight that extends well beyond the band's identity - wrapping us in waves of familiar strain, tension, hope, and longing."

The Big Takeover premieres Flagship

Irresistible indie-rock duo, Flagship just released their new track "Philadelphia Babe," and we can't get this one out of our heads. Their upcoming EP, The Ladder, will be out this April.
