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." 

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.”

Consequence of Sound Premieres Baby FuzZ

With a voice that defies genres and transcends time, Baby FuzZ grabs your attention with honeyed vocals in the anthemic ballad, “I’m Still Holding Out For You”.

Consequence of Sound says "His vocals, soaked in a somber potion, hang over warm piano and the occasional glam-rock shriek of an electric guitar. Think of a cross between Tobias Jesso Jr. and The Struts."

All Things Go says, "Armed with just a ukelele and her voice, mxmtoon is turning a lot of heads. The 18-year-old Oakland artist has been creating enchanting bedroom-folk singles since 2017. Today she keeps things going with "i feel like chet," an ode to legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker."

GRAACE releases her SELF SABOTAGE EP

Listen: "SOS"  // Stream SELF SABOTAGE EP 

The Line of Best Fit says "Honest and intimate like a spoken diary entry, 'SOS' combines GRAACE's layered angelic vocals over a luminous piano melody that develops into an endearing pop ballad."

It's the kind of song you actually can't get out of your head - it's catchy, it's dancey, but it's also real and relatable. GRAACE continues to get very real and very raw in her SELF SABOTAGE EP and "SOS" brings a powerful story to life. "I'm calling SOS, waiting for your rescue, the only problem is I'm good at hiding all my issues," she cries. It's the pop-anthem for those love blues. 

Flaunt Premieres Baby FuzZ

It's here, it's here! The video for Baby FuzZ's new single "Disneyland" is out now and is worth stopping what you're doing to watch. The video for "Disneyland", directed by Peter English, is the story of an open human / puppet relationship gone haywire. It's a gender fluid googly-eyed, faux fur trainwreck, and we love every second of it. 

Cowritten with Babydaddy of legendary NYC band Scissor Sisters, what "Disneyland" lacks in emotional depth it makes up for in shameless lasciviousness. "I don't want to be your boyfriend...I just wanna be a player, and ride the rides like it's Disneyland," he says. Well hey - at least it's honest. 

Flaunt Mag says "Baby FuzZ offers us a new truth wrapped in an unsuspecting package." 

Ones To Watch Premieres GRAACE

Vulnerable but beautiful, GRAACE reveals the heart-breaking story of a lonely heart-breaker. Watch the video for “Last Night” HERE.

Ones to Watch says "GRAACE is among the new age of Birdy's; she makes emotional bangers with melodies that young girls can't help but cover for their YouTube channels. The Australian singer is only 21, but her sound is confidently her own, heavy with harmonies and lyrically dark."
