SONG PICK: The Eskimo Chain – Sun Data

“Sun Data” is a guitar drenched, moody track and contemporary psych-rock at its finest! The song is as fierce as it is melodic and rather catchy too. “Sun Data” is also the first single from The Eskimo Chain‘s upcoming EP. The quartet is based in Kent, England and has been on tour with glamglare[…]

SONG PICK: FEiN – It’s Alright

“It’s alright to feel this way” is a line from FEiN‘s new single “It’s Alright” and it is as affirmative as the song itself despite the moodier undertones.  We are huge fans of the L.A.-based synth rock duo FEiN comprised of  Brandon Woodward and Luke Walton, whose musical creativity seems to[…]

VIDEO: Vox Eagle – No Sleep

A song as infectious as “No Sleep” doesn’t need much in terms of visuals and so Aussie-American electro-psych pop duo Vox Eagle settle for the breathtakingly beautiful landscape between L.A. and Las Vegas with some city feel thrown in while one the road. Andy Crosby and Luke Hamel, who form the duo[…]

SONG PICK: Darlia – Ballad of Black & White

“Come fly with me ‘cos I’m ready” – too tempting to reply something like “took you two years” but that would be rude considering that Darlia, one of the most exciting bands to come out from an already big pool of exciting bands is back, and back with a stunner of a song![…]
