CHANCES have just released their newest single “Rishikesh” .
"We love this song and feel it has a certain power to it. It's about choice and intention. The intention to trust your instinct, and to align action with thought. The song's driving rhythm continually pushes forward, the vocals play off each other in a sort of call and response, the synths spark up a colorful chaos. All of that is built around a loop of voices recorded on iPhone on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Rishikesh, India.We came together in Montreal in 2016 to sketch out a few songs, just to see where uninhibited brainstorming might lead us. New rules brought new possibilities, one person’s writer’s block became another’s building block, now we’re happy to be sharing our third single with you. The first singles ‘Shine’ & ‘Leave The Light On’ were released early this year to great notices."
NO//LIARS is a punk band, straight up no frills, no gimmicks. With one self-produced EP under their belt, they enlisted the help of Jesse Gander of Rain City Recorders (Japandroids, White Lung, The Pack A.D) to record their first full length, The Cause & The Cure (Due in early 2018). They also asked Joao Carvalho (Alexisonfire, Arkells, Silverstein, Protest the Hero) to master the album.
"‘Animal’ is the first single from the record and we think it showcases us at our best. At it’s root, ‘Animal’ is about struggling with inner turmoil and recognizing the darkest parts of ourselves. We wanted the video to portray the terror of losing touch with reality when facing one's inner demons."
Megan Bülow is a 17-year-old singer from The Netherlands. She just released her first music “Damaged Vol. 1” & lead song ‘Not A Love Song’.
"Not A Love Song’ is about the excitement of meeting someone for the first time. Initially it feels so new and overwhelmingly good, but eventually, I decided I wasn't ready for that commitment. Or at least that's what I told myself. You can’t let lust fool you. Be honest with yourself, If it's not meant to be it's not meant to be, but doesn't mean you can't have fun!"
Austin TX's indie rock foursome, Young Tongue (previously The Baker Family), consists of husband and wife Stu and Liz Baker along with Nathan Ribner, and Darryl Schomberg II. The band has been writing, performing, and recording material since their freshman full length “Death Rattle”, and is currently releasing a series of singles from September 2017 to Summer 2018.
"After our full length came out in 2015, our band had two babies," explains lead vocalist Stu Baker. "Needless to say, that changed a lot for us; but all along we've still been regularly playing shows, writing, and recording new songs together. Eventually we decided to put the songs out one at a time, and release a single once a month starting in September 2017."
"Electric Display is a song that felt like it wrote itself while we were just kind of jamming during a rehearsal. The lyrics came to me while I was hiking on the green belt with my daughter strapped to my chest. Being alone in the woods with my daughter, and thinking about how strange it is to be on the other side of the parent/child relationship now, I had a sort of existential epiphany that I'm at the beginning of the middle of the end of my life. The song sort of circles around that concept, along with the theme of how identity relates to cultural behavior. "
Young Tongue complicates the earthy momentum of their percussion-driven sound with surprising touches — an airy omnichord melody or a jagged guitar solo. Their sound generally ranges from progressive indie rock to psychedelic dance-infused dream pop. It’s this range of lightness of sound and force of rhythm that stirs their audiences to dance. Their lyrics move cohesively, stringing along images to reveal stories. If a new language is born out of a necessity to communicate, Young Tongue captures that same sense of urgency to expose narrative.

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
