Dom Fricot just released a new video for “Echoes”, which follows two young boys running through the city. Shot in the streets of Nepal, the two friends spend the day exploring the city by scaling walls, running on roofs, exploring the city and joking with each other. The video for “Echoes” is almost a mini feature film, as subtitles are used while Dom’s voice echoes in the background. Dom Fricot even incorporates a political narrative about Pakistan by the end of the video. With stunning visuals and peaceful vocals by Fricot, “Echoes” makes out to be a beautiful track and a tasteful video.
Florida natives Deaf Poets just released “Change & Bloom”, a single off of their upcoming EP of the same title which is due out on June 15th. The duo has already enjoyed quite a bit of success, having played with The Growlers, Mac DeMarco, and Matt and Kim just to name a few. Their latest single brings a throwback while incorporating a 90’s grunge style. Sean Waters provides us both the angsty vocals and the guitar on “Change & Bloom”. Bandmate Nico E.P on the other hand, shows off his mad drum skills and does not hold back. So if you are somewhere in between “I like rock” and “not heavy rock”, “Change & Bloom” is definitely for you.
RIVVRS recently released their latest, “Let It Die”, a break-up track with a raw sound. The alt-rock track is composed of raspy vocals and intense lyrics such as “I’m gonna let it die” and “This time I didn’t pay no mind, to the song playing in my brain.” While “Let It Die” is primarily seen as a break-up song, it takes a look at everything in life that you need to “let die”– not just love.
RIVVRS explains the track for us, stating: ” ‘Let it Die’ is a breakup song but it’s more so about that feeling of reaching your limit in life and you realize something needs to change.”
“Let It Die” remains an eye-opener for anyone in need of a change.
“Tire Eyes” is the fun and phenomenal latest from Post Animal. Post Animal throws listeners for a loop while including sounds from all different genres. They include a little bit of country, but only before transitioning into a classic rock vibe shouting “TIRE EYES!” in unison at the giving the track its peppy 80’s feel. “Tire Eyes” remains groovy and is also a track you can get down to but scream with in your car at the same time. The band puts a new twist on a classic sound, which makes “Tire Eyes” so unique.
Speedy Ortiz just released the latest track “Villain,” which opens with a heavy bass line and grunge rock feel. The lyrics remain quirky with lines like, “He talks like he knows me so I’m being polite,” and “I want to know if no means all right.” The track takes a stab at the topic of unwanted advances and the struggle of having to act “polite” in awkward situations.
Take a look at the vintage, candy-colored inspired video and you’ll agree that “Villain” is more than just a song, it’s an anthem for many.
