NOSOUND NEW SONG/MUSIC VIDEO “SHORT STORY” STREAMING ONLINE
After a decade of crafting a very particular type of widescreen melancholia and wistful imagery, Nosound has announced its fifth studio album, Scintilla, to be released via Kscope on September 2.
Inspired by personal upheaval and a desire for change, Scintilla is an emotionally complex and musically direct work presenting a stripped-down set of compositions that mark a major departure from Nosound’s trademark symphonic lushness and production precision. Shifting from the uncharacteristic sarcasm of “Love is Forever” and potent anger of “The Perfect Wife,” to the dreamy sensitivity of “Emily” and the unusually uplifting “Celebration of Life,” Scintilla represents the boldest statement of Nosound’s career so far.

THE PARANOID STYLE PREMIERE NEW SINGLE “GIVING UP EARLY (ON TOMORROW)”
Of the track, Nelson had to say, “I’ve always had an aversion to songs which are nakedly manipulative, or optimistic in a cock-eyed way, so this was just sort of an antidote to that. Basically, in a fun way, it’s saying: Things are bad, things are going to remain bad in perpetuity, and I hereby recuse myself from the responsibility of hope for the future. I’m hoping it will replace that Green Day song as the favored theme of high school graduations across America.”

HORSEBACK Shares Second New Single “Lion Killer”
Elaborates Jenks Miller of Dead Ringers overall, “The muse dictated a creepy, electronic sound palette this time around. Because recent Rose Cross records have been pursuing the pastoral psych-rock sound of HORSEBACK’s 2014 record, Piedmont Apocrypha, we had an opportunity to venture into the heady regions of the ‘hidden reverse.’ This isn’t really new territory for HORSEBACK, as Coil, Nurse With Wound, and a handful of post-punk bands have always been very influential to our sound. But it’s certainly the furthest we’ve traveled in this particular direction.”
