We all know the highs of a relationship can be magical while the lows can sometimes be quite traumatizing, but in Rush Midnight’s latest single, “off/on” he reflects on the beauty of it all. Sticking true to his signature sound of lush synths, funky bass lines, horn stabs and mesmerizing vocals, this song is a smooth 70’s throwback a la Tame Impala, Neon Indian and Blood Orange. We try to transform lingering relationship trauma into beautiful art. We wrote this song by a pool in West Hollywood. A love affair that evolves downward always has its extreme highs and lows etched into our memories; there’s beauty in it. New York native Russell Manning began his journey in music studying jazz at Oberlin under bass legends Buster Williams, Eddie Gomez and Leon Dorsey. After touring overseas with the band Twin Shadow he settled down in Los Angeles and began his career […]
Just in time for the summer, Fionn returns with their latest album ‘I Might Start Smoking’. Inspired by the unpredictable transition into adulthood and quoted as their “second coming of age”, the twin sister duo delivers a super catchy indie-pop record in the vein of artists like Haim, boygenius and MUNA. The Celtic-Canadian duo first came onto the music scene in 2018 with their self-titled debut album and began building an incredible catalog with the label 604 Records. Known for their catchy hooks and creative songwriting abilities, the sisters have refined their craft and never fail to deliver a well-polished sound. This time around they’ve opted to try and weave their Celtic accents into the music in a subtle, yet tasteful way. We dig it.

I’d recommend this record while you’re cleaning your room, or staining a blank page with ink, or hidden under a pile of sheets fresh out of the dryer. I’d recommend this record as a companion for introspection, or as an incantation for connection. Where Does The Body Begin?’ is the second EP from the Californian who is now based in New York.

Moving on from the 60’s style Psych-Pop of their last few singles, in their newest single “Hiding From” the mysterious duo King Complex leans into a dreamy 80’s inspired synth driven sound a-la Tame Impala and Empire Of The Sun.

This masked Florida duo gained significant success from their single, “Dark Disco” which garnered over a million streams on Spotify. Always changing up their sound but exploring retro vibes from the past, this band’s ambiguous style continues to evolve.

In her latest single “LOZER (feat. A Z)”, EMM delivers a powerful performance and creative fusion of Pop and Phonk. Full of dynamic elements, EMM worked with producer Jason Mater to create a track that highlights the underground genre which connects gaming, comics, and electronic music. Lyrically, I wrote LOZER (With A Z) about losing fear of what others think. I’ve never really fit in and I’ve had to learn to accept and celebrate myself as I am. The song is funny and lighthearted (“I heard she used to sniff sharpies”) and self deprecating (“I’m such a fucking loser”), but also recognizing the empowerment and freedom in self acceptance (“I love the way I am cause I’m a God damn star). A multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and four-octave vocalist, EMM isn’t your traditional LA pop singer. She’s unapologetic, fierce and thrives as a self-made independent artist. With over 100 million streams […]
