“True Romance” refers to the 1993 movie and while you probably don’t want to be stuck in a Quentin Tarantino movie, there are always characters with an undeniable appeal.

But this 90s-vibes, power pop, sing-along anthem works for everybody who needs a quick escape, even if it is only in your head. “Step on the gas, riding into the sunset, not coming back,” Abbie sings and we are probably all ready for that.

We are way into the 21st century and female producers are still few and far between, in particularly those who focus mostly on the music. One of them is Ninja Tune signee TSHA from London who is about to release her new EP “Flowers” on November 13.

Californian three-piece The Drives could as well have met in early 2000 and not only in 2017 because of the cool and catchy indie-rock they create. It was 2017 when singer and songwriter Andrew Levin and guitarist Casey Chen met over their bedroom recordings and formed The Drives. Later that[…]
Promise and the Monster is the project of Swedish singer/songwriter Billie Lidahl. Listen to her new song “Closed My Eyes” and it becomes clear why she has shared stages with Chelsea Wolfe.

“I wanna feel the power of holding no-one every again.” Where is L.A. singer/songwriter Jilian Medford aka Ian Sweet going with her latest track “Power?” Not depending on anybody can be an advantage.

After all, everything has its ups and downs.
