The SirensSound presents the new single "Baby" by Basement Revolver.
"Baby is about feeling sad and down even though you are generally happy about everything and everyone in your life. It’s about feeling confused about what I want in life, and how that affects other people. It is about crying a lot and feeling like I was burdening my partner with those questions. It is also about my tendency to retreat when things get too overwhelming, to spend all day and night in my bed and watching netflix and eating doritos. "Baby" was written at a point in my relationship where I was so happy with my partner and with the things in my life at that point – but I felt an overall dissatisfaction and sadness that I couldn’t explain. I’d be having a really nice date, and I would start crying, and I didn’t know why. Sadness was just there, sitting with me in uncertainty. So I dealt with it by trying to sleep it off, or hanging out on my own. I felt like this depressive state was affecting those around me in a negative way and I felt guilty about that.
The chorus on this one pretty much states clearly how I was feeling – “Baby I’m so sorry, I’m trying my best to figure this out, I swear that I’m so happy, this crying won’t fix what’s already broken and dead, just give me some time”.
"Baby" will be part of the new album ‘Heavy Eyes’ out this summer via Sonic Unyon (North America) & fear of missing out (UK).
The Caracals is the brainchild of charismatic songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Johnny Cis, an Orange County-based artist with a creative vision and a passion for retro aesthetics.
The band's new track "City Girl" details summer romance, alternating slightly nostalgic lyrics with a stark psych-rock twist and the group’s trademark indie-rock energy. The song was recorded at Jazzcats Studios (Tijuana Panthers, The Buttertones) and was mastered by Grammy-nominated sound engineer Kelly Hibbert (Allah-Las, Little Dragon).
The Caracals are particularly inspired by early 2000s indie-rock, and the period’s unique wave of indie-rock bands. Johnny’s indie-rock influences are tastefully mixed with surf, beat and flavorful '60s vibes, making for a direct and unique take on garage rock music.
The band is expected to release their debut EP in September 2018. The Caracals worked with Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Royal Blood), for their recent single release, “In The Dark.” The track was featured on the popular Spotify playlist “Fresh Finds: Six Strings.”
"Into and out Of" is the latest single off of Language's forthcoming EP, Plymouth.
(Brooklyn, NY) When Omar Afzaal (guitar, vox) woke up the morning of his wedding, he already knew it would be the biggest day of his life up until that point. What he didn’t know is that he would meet Charles Sloan (bass, vox) that same day. The two would go on to play music together in 2013, resulting in some demos. It was when Afzaal and Sloan turned to Craigslist to find a drummer, eventually linking up with Wes Black, that the brotherhood of Language was born. Following two self-released EPs, the band now announces their signing to Brooklyn-based label Good Eye Records and their forthcoming Plymouth EP.
Language has been something of a best-kept secret in the live music landscape in NYC. Their experimental while unflinching stylings are the product of three individual talents committed to their artistry, enjoying the hell out of playing with each other the whole way. Their status earned them a support for Shame in late 2017, with Plymouth set to bring them to the attention of the music-enjoying populace at large.
Plymouth is out May 18th and is the sixth release from Good Eye Records.
'I Know You Know' is an indie rock band based in Sydney, Australia. Formed in late 2017, the band consists of singer and songwriter Alex Toh, guitarist Sam Aylward, bassist Love Ernving and drummer Gerardo Torres.
Drawing from influences like Arctic Monkeys, Blur, The Cribs and other bands from the golden age of Britpop, punk and the garage-rock revival, 'I Know You Know' deliver a special blend of retro-inspired pop punk sounds with lyrics examining the millennial facade of the modern age.
'The Rules of Attraction' is the guitar-driven and melodically supercharged debut single from Sydney-based rock band 'I Know You Know'. The head bobbing rhythm combined with the instantly approachable melodies propels the song from start to finish like a roller coaster complete with just the right number of jolts and turns.
The lyrics capture the mundaneness of the modern age and yearning for a more extraordinary life. The wry lines are delivered with raw honesty, while the chorus provides the sense of hope in realizing our dreams, topped off with a cathartic outro.
"When I wrote 'The Rules of Attraction' I wanted to synthesize some of my strongest and most influential memories of the good times when I was a kid. I wanted to capture that feeling of playing an old video game or watching your favorite music video on a Saturday morning. Of meeting up with your friends in the late afternoon and driving around all night.
I wanted to channel the zeitgeist of possibility, imagination and of the carefree times of the youthful days. When something so simple as a game, or the opening bars of a song could immediately grab your attention and make you start imagining things. When your imagination could transport you to another world, or take you on a wild adventure, and then make your heart melt when you finished it, only to realize you were still sitting in the living room with your friends all along. I felt 'The Rules of Attraction' summed all of this up for me and I'm pleased to have it out as the band's debut single."
"“Dream Reader” is a fairytale. Set in the subconscious mind of a girl lost in her pursuit of revenge, the video represents the will to detach from oneself – thought you cannot escape the person you will ultimately become.
“Dream Reader” was written around a series of dreams I’d had while the band was feeling directionless. I was struggling to maintain my belief in the importance of creating music and our ambitions as a group. These dreams of drowning, stranded horses, and flying janky planes kept coming. I looked a few up in a dream dictionary and found that many of them were about new beginnings, emotional rebirth. After writing this song and finishing it off with the band, I began to feel inspired again. Whenever we create new music together, it seems to light me up.
"The video is a loop, and absurd like a dream. She finds herself as both the one on a wild ride, and the one on an obvious mission. I think this loop of confusion and clarity is one that I cycle through often, and sometimes we do together as a band" - Nashlyn Lloyd
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
