Clash Premieres Meyru

Meyru have swept us off our feet with new single “She” from their forthcoming album! Clash gives us a first look at the stunning single and says, "Meyru capture a bit of New York's sweeping grandeur... Gorgeous, watery effects drape themselves across the guitar lines, while the heavenly vocals have this blissful, sighing, choral effect."

The 405 Premieres Albert Kass

It is hard not to fall in love with the sounds of Albert Kass. This L.A. native possesses a serenity that is hard to grasp but does so in his grabbing single "Same Lie," from his forthcoming Young Old Man Album.

The 405 says, "It's an alluring endeavor, infused with gentle warmth neighboring its sonic edges...A self-described "late bloomer" who has shifted career paths to find his way here, Kass' music strikes listeners to their cores. On 'Same Lie' Kass embraces fleeting youth with spirited tenacity and unequivocal desire."

The Music Ninja Premieres Vern Matz

Indie trio Vern Matz are back with their follow-up single "Tiny Nuclear Reactor." The Music Ninja says "It's not hard to hear nods to Ben Folds or Deathcab for Cutie, what with the casual vocal cadence and soft guitar strums. It should be noted that while this feat is often emulated, it's rarely effective. That's not the case with Vern Matz.”

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."

We Found New Music Premieres Tangie Town

Tangie Town, the musical project of Los Angeles-Portland based brother duo Sam and Sloan Martin, bring a breezy, nostalgic sound to their debut EP. Donning 4 unique tracks, it's an album for winding road trips, evenings under the stars, or a night out in a neon metropolis. 

We Found New Music writes, "Each melody is equal parts haunting & compelling, simultaneously getting stuck in your head and under your skin."

The Solarists Release "Cup of Tea" off their CRYPTK EP

Crunchy guitars and a stellar bass line ring loud as Nate Wells' vocals pierce your soul with the poignant line, "Could you love me at all?" "Cup of Tea" bites back - full of attitude and oh so catchy. The Solarists' effortless sound, memorable hooks and relatable lyrics make for the ultimate summer soundtrack and lucky for us, it is here right in time! 

The Habits Release "Calling Me Up" Video

Summer days are here and The Habits have gifted us with their energetic summer tune, "Calling Me Up." Now they're here with a music video that will make you swoon. 

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 Music Ninja premieres The Solarists

The Provo based indie-rock band, The Solarists, are here with their new track "Wait For It." The Solarists are bringing a little sunshine to this gloomy Monday. 

The Music Ninja calls it "A perfectly intertwined duo of dreamy, wandering verses and a rowdy-as-hell chorus, this tune catches your attention early and grips it throughout the whole ride...With a sound as infectious as theirs, it shouldn't come as a surprise when these guys really starting picking up steam." 

Jimmy Keeps it Real with "Smile"

Jimmy intrigued us with his self-titled debut track, "Jimmy," and now he's here with his newest single, "Smile."  "Smile" feels like wandering into a misty dream. An almost eerie soundscape, "Smile" is as dark as it is vulnerable and sets the groundwork for Jimmy's commentary. He explains, "I tried to throw myself into the fucked-up dream that is the opioid epidemic in the United States and capture what I could of its hazy and ironically self-destructive fantasy."

 

Imperfect Fifth says, "Ever-impressed by the incredible talent that is Jimmy, we are delighted to share his new haunting and dark single "Smile"...It displays the power of connection, as listeners relate to the same feelings of powerlessness in a corporate world."

Give it a listen!

Mines Falls' new track, "Recoil," is possibly one of their strongest yet. Give it a listen HERE

Impose says, "Mines Falls offers a wealth of pianos, violins, subtle electronic arrangements & more on the new single 'Recoil'. Swells of therapeutic harmonies & melodies move like the sea's rhythms of the ebb & rolling tide that take cue from cosmic & lunar worlds of the grand sciences."

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.

Shiffley's "Cut Out My Heart" is a small taste of what this album has to offer. Paper Cranes has a killer energy that perfectly blends 90's electro-pop and 80's percussive mastery, and is the perfect addition to your "Driving down to the beach because it's 70 degrees in February" Playlist. 

Payton Odom bring us his new single "Conventional Wisdom" off his forthcoming EP. With musings on heartbreak woven over vintage guitar, warm horns and driving piano, Odom's track finds a groove to it that is often lost in most contemporary music. Taking it back to simple production, intoxicating vocals, and soul-quenching lyrics, "Conventional Wisdom" is Odom's mark on the world - and quite a mark it is.
