Released on the heels of NYC rock n’ roll outfit Jeremy & the Harlequins last hit track that debut last November is their new single, “California Rock,” that hit the market recently and has already started to work its way up the charts. With the hopes and dreams of keeping good rock n’ roll alive, this group has worked tirelessly to preserve everything that fans love about this iconic genre. “It’s ‘California Rock‘ from a New York state of mind,” explains vocalist Jeremy Fury. “The song is about my favorite time capsule, Los Angeles. Contrary to New York where a bank or cupcake shop will have replaced a mom and pop shop by the time you finish listening to this track, one thing I’ve come to love about LA is its Groundhog’s Day-like permanence. Prior to moving to New York, I lived in Echo Park and then Downtown LA for almost three years. This tune is reflective tale.”

With this new single released, the band has also stated that they have hopes of releasing even more music for their fans later in in the spring. With all of their skill in fast paced, electric soundscapes and beautifully crafted lyrical masterpieces, there is no doubt that there is no place to go but up for this up and coming rock n’ roll band.

Breaking out of the societal norms with their stunning new track, “Noisy Heaven,” is Philadelphia based budding punk project, Quiet Slang. At the head of this revolution in the punk industry is James Alex, a known and noted musical genius with the skill and talent that so many people crave and seek. With natural talent in his back pocket, Alex has put together a new single that has depth and meaning that may not be apparent at first listen. Beneath the stark minimalism of their track lies emotion that both denotes the opposition to distortion and perfectly embodies Quest Slang’s raison d’etre.

Along with their amazing ability to weave talent and music into one harmonious track, it has been said that Alex has been called both radical and mysterious. Speaking of this very subject NYLON stated, “Working under the moniker of Quiet Slang, Alex brought the magic of Beach Slang’s Tiny Desk concert for NPR to Austin, through stripped-back performances and an ease foreign to fans of Beach Slang. It’s a radical thing to do, but artists work in mysterious, unexpected ways.” As fans gather to listen to this new release, they will not only have all of their expectations exceeded, but find that they are experiencing something far beyond “just another song.”
