Alan Getto Shares New Single “Change”
Inspired by paradoxical elements of life and examining his own transition into his current lifestyle, Getto finds a perfect balance between various dualities through his artistic expression. Having recently located to an unfinished farmhouse in Western Pennsylvania from Brooklyn, Versus presents Getto’s personal confrontation with his own ambivalence. The album intentionally plays with cliché oppositions such as nature vs. the city, good vs. the bad and male vs. female. One can’t exist without the other, and for anything to exist, there must be a degree of conflict: “the versus.”
LET THEM FALL “Wintersun”
After some months of hard work Let Them Fall are ready to break the silence and come back with a new single called “Wintersun”.
This step mantains the same direction of their last song “Fenrir” but with a significant change of vibe. The band shifts its focus towards a deeper and darker point of view creating a different atmosphere, cold as winter. The track has been mixed/mastered and produced at Wavemotion.
Recordings and the videoclip has been made by Matteo Ermeti Multimedia.
Dan Owen releases video for new single ‘Moonlight’
Dan Owen has unveiled the video for his new single ‘Moonlight’, the first release to come since signing a major deal with Atlantic Records. The video finds the Shrewsbury singer performing his haunting love ballad in cavernous surroundings as majestic moonlight floods in upon him.
‘Moonlight’ is an intimate insight into Dan’s stunning songwriting and jaw-dropping vocal abilities. The song launched with strong support from Spotify, and featured on the platform’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist in eight countries across Europe, including the UK, upon release.
Celebrated global music artist and activist Alicia Keys and the inspirational movement of Indigenous Peoples fighting for their rights in Canada have been honoured with the 2017 Amnesty International Ambassador of Conscience Award at an evening ceremony in Montreal, Canada.
The award is the organization’s highest honour for human rights work. This is the first time the award was given to a Canadian recipient.
“Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience awardees this year stand in the tradition of past winners such as Vaclav Havel and Malala Yousafzai – people who have shown exceptional leadership and courage to champion human rights, often in the face of great difficulty,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.
Accepting the award recognizing the Indigenous rights movement of Canada were activists Delilah Saunders, Melanie Morrison, Melissa Mollen Dupuis and Widia Larivière. Activists from across the movement have bravely fought to end discrimination and ensure the well-being of Indigenous communities.
Roya have shared their debut self-titled LP on The 405. When talking about the LP, lead singer Rahill Jamalifard describes it as, “A scrambler of post punk jangles, with dark undertones and somber lyrics, an ode to touchy subjects.”. Prior to the LP stream the band released three singles, “Scum Rise”, “A Sickness”, and “End Times”. The band will be celebrating the release of their debut LP at Brooklyn Bazaar on 6/16.
Singer/Songwriter Sophia releases heartfelt debut single ‘Give Me Heart’
In the lead up to the release of her debut EP (2017) Sophia has learned the art of making the music she loves, true to herself with conviction and without compromise. At only 22, Sophia’s music is the unique expression of the cultural and creative melting pot provided by her upbringing. Having traveled more in her childhood then most do in a lifetime, her stories, songs and musings are fused with wisdom beyond her years and a simplicity, rooted in the quiet confidence of being.
Having already toured the UK tour this year, recorded at the iconic Abbey Road studio and begun production on her debut EP, Sophia is gearing up for a phenomenal 2017.
NPR’s All Songs Considered is premiering a video by Ohio band Saintseneca for their new track “Book of The Dead On Sale,” which Stereogum writes, “shows just how assured and steady the band has become over the years. It’s noxious and queasy and melts into a graceful harmony by the end.”
Fabian Secon & 5ive Beatz “Rockstar”
Fast-rising UK singer Fabian Secon and producer 5ive Beatz have announced their forthcoming joint EP, Until We Meet Again, set to be released 23rd June. The first taste of what to expect comes courtesy of “Rockstar”, a trap-infused R&B banger that showcases both artists’ greatest assets—Fabian’s richly soulful vocals and 5ive’s thumping bass-heavy beats.
Until We Meet Again is the follow-up to Fabian’s debut EP, Don’t Disturb, and sees the coming together of two artists from London who have both taken major strides over the past couple of years. Fabian was recently touted by Complex as an artist to watch in 2017 and has had support from a wealth of radio stations and industry tastemakers, such as Jamz Supernova and DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra where “Sensei” (150,000 streams on YouTube) was given BBC Introducing Single Of The Week honours by MistaJam.
Melt Mountain is one’s inner most angst, a gut feeling of a frivolous daily routine, a hopeless bus ride that’s only meant to show you how things may seem through a window as you swiftly pass by, with no intention of getting off. This has been the case since 2014 when they released their self-titled EP, carving up a musical landscape in a whimsical sense while also setting up intricate foundations with a narrative that most people can relate to.
“Superfetish” has explored more of the depths that the band was willing to go to. Lyrically it is very much influenced by urban culture, life and conduct, as complex and unforgiving as it gets. It navigates the recluse mind and the misunderstood personality. At the same time their music joins the dots between the abstract thought process captured in words with the same riffing mountain melting power that has come to define them.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood “High Is Not The Top”
Chris Robinson Brotherhood announce the second leg of their ‘Barefoot In The Head’ U.S. tour. The 35-date run, stretching from September though November, supports their new studio album of the same name due July 21 on Robinson’s own Silver Arrow Records.

Along the way they’ll return to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, make their first ever performance at the historic Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI and play three two-night stands at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC and Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA. The CRB kick off the run off with three shows in Florida supporting Blackberry Smoke, while the remainder of the dates will be “An Evening With…” headline performances featuring two sets each night.
