Band of Gold just premiered their single “Well Who Am I” off of their forthcoming album Where’s The Magic. PopMatters describes the band sound as “A really unique take on pop music… an intriguing sound.” It is in fact an intriguing sound as the track is quirky, unique, and very zany. What you think is going to start off as an alt-pop song, leans into a rock guitar solo, but not until the vocals pick up the pace and end the song abruptly.
The most interesting part of “Well Who Am I” is the bands’ seemingly random lyrics. It starts off “I like the way you comb you hair” and is followed by “I like the neatness of your hair….but I don’t think you’ll ever dare.” The uniqueness and array of sounds/genres is what makes this song so fascinating, and addicting.

Artist Evelinn Trouble releases her latest single “Monstruous.” The track starts out with a softs notes of a piano (almost calming a for about five seconds. However, the mood shifts quickly into an electronic drop. Evelinn tells us the tale of a conflicting love song as her raw vocals proclaim “It is monstruous, it is evrything for a moment then, then it’s nothing.” ” ‘Monstruous is my attempt at writing a romantic pop anthem…now I love it for what it is; a song about the impossibility of love, made of scraps, wrapped shiny in plastic” says the artist. “Monstruous” is emotional, raw, haunting, and definitely worth the listen.

With their truly modern and personal sound, Manchester duo SEAWAVES has dropped their new single, “Her”.
Comprised of vocals from Si Van Brussel and co-writer Daniel Benjamin, SEAWAVES has been truly been making moves in the music world, even having their music used in films and commercials by Disney, Sony, The Olympics, and many other big name companies/brands. It’s no wonder; SEAWAVES is something special and very of-the-moment. Benjamin says, “Our music is very personal to us, which is why it’s only us two creating it. Our songs are pretty much us in a form people can connect to.” Following the release of their debut LP, The Motion Picture, SEAWAVES’ second record, The Soundtrack, is due for release this spring. It is the first record in a three-part series, and if “Her” is indication, The Soundtrack will be phenomenal.
New single “Her” is a great example of the energy and authenticity that Brussel and Benjamin put into their music. With an exhilarating beat and uplifting lyrics, “Her” captures the moving, living soundscape that SEAWAVES creates. We can’t wait for The Soundtrack, but until then, “Her” will be on repeat.

“Not Human” is the latest track by electro-pop newcomers, Elegant Slims. The song starts off with a forceful electronic beat, followed by creeping vocals which are sometimes distorted claiming “You’re not human anymore, you’re not human anymore.” The track is futuristic, moody, and taunting making for a song that you just want to scream in the car with, after you turn up your bass all the way up of course. The New York based group describes the single as “…the darkness we know exists in the world.” “Not Human” is definitely worth checking out.

Indie pop artist Alexx Mack just released her latest single “Wine in Bed.” In the artists own words “Wine in Bed is about me learning that my coping methods were adding toxicity in my life and relationships,” says Mack. “I would drink and cross my fingers to feel better and almost every time I’d end up making another mistake. I thought that every sign was pointing to me needing to be alone, the truth was that I was pushing everything good in my life away.” Alexx Mack’s voice is haunting, but the message of the song even more so. Lyrics like “I’ll just smoke another cigarette, drink wine in bed, tell another lie I can’t forget” are intense and touching. Mack’s voice and execution almost makes “Wine in Bed” sound like a ballad, but hear it through and you’ll realize it’s an itching cry for help.
